Dahl House Design is introducing another chart of colors; our favorite whites! You may say, white is white. But, if you have ever been to a paint store, you know this is not the case. There are thousands of different whites. They all have various undertones. If you’ve ever tried to match a white to an existing white, you know how hard that can be. Whites do not have to be boring. They can bring calmness to a space or they can be the neutral to pops of color. As residential interior designers, we use white a lot and we have our go-to colors. These are a few of our most loved and most utilized whites. Feel free to share!

Of course, paint color depends on the space, application, and furniture / accessories it will coordinate with but these colors are a great place to start. We recommend always buying a small paint sample to test on a wall before committing to buying enough for your space. Dahl House Design offers paint consultation services.
