This is a bit of an addendum to my Right White piece a few weeks ago. In that post, we chose Farrow&Ball All-White 2005. It’s bright, completely neutral, with only “white pigments and no modern brighteners.” Today's project was similar — same question, different solution.
I was called in because the extant white was too cold and bright. What we alighted upon in this instance was Benjamin Moore Floral White OC-29. It warmed these rooms up, was friendly with both wood and chrome, and just when I thought it started to run yellow in one corner, it ran grey in another. Look closely where the walls meet the ceiling and you’ll see what I mean.
Next week, we’ll be more daring and go the opposite direction.
