Favourite White Paint Colours

What better way to start the new year than to talk about my favourite topic: white paint! I made a list of all my favourite whites / warm whites that I’ve used in recent projects.

1. Swiss Coffee by Benjamin Moore

Project Alexandra | Jess Craven Interiors

Shop the Look

Pleated Linen Curtains // Scottish Mountains Landscape Print // Pillow 01 // Pillow 02 // Pillow 03 // Metal Nesting tables with Ball Feet

I used this colour on all the mainfloor walls of our Craven Homestead Project at 75% strength. With south facing windows it appears bright white on full sun days and creamier / warmer on gloomy days. I also used this colour on the walls and shiplap of Project Alexandra. It’s the perfect warm white and a trick to keeping the walls from looking too warm is to paint your trim and ceiling the same colour but in different sheens!

2. Alabaster by Sherwin Williams

Jenna Sue Designs

Project Moody Bedroom | Jess Craven Interiors

I love this colour. It’s like a milky, creamy white. When comparing to other Benjamin Moore whites, it is warmer than White Dove and because of its neutral base, it doesn’t come across as yellow as Simply White making this a favourite warm white.

3. Ballet White by Benjamin Moore

Ballet white is my go-to colour for subtle creamy cabinetry. With just the right amount of colour, it’s a chameleon and changes with the light offering a bright hint of cream during the day and darkening quite a bit as the light fades. If you’re not ready to commit to Benjamin Moore Creamy White, then this is a good alternative.

4. seapearl by Benjamin Moore

Project Cozy Cottage TV Room | Jess Craven Interiors

I love the subtle grey / purple undertones of this colour but wanted it even more subdued so I painted all the panelling of Project Cozy Cottage TV Room in Seapearl @ 50%. It’s just enough of a hint of colour to add warmth to the room but you really notice it in the evening. The colour envelops you and gives a warm feeling when you enter the room.
