Which White Paint Do You Like?

Yesterday we were confronted with a particularly funny design dilemma - which white paint to choose? We held up our paint decks to the wall and studied each swatch carefully. Some were warmer, some cooler, some brighter, some more muted. There are just so many good choices.We tend to go with Decorators White, which is a cool modern shade with a hint of blue, and we also like Dove White, which has a slightly warmer tint without reading as too golden. When choosing a wall color, it's important to consider the other elements of the room, like rug, window treatments, fabrics, and furniture. Since paint comes in every imaginable color, it is often the last choice in a design scheme and is chosen to work with other selections. But wallcolor is a huge statement in any room, so be sure to choose wisely.

Which white has worked well for you?
