PITTSBURGH PAINTS CRUMB COOKIE 217-1: "There was a period when people liked white with a tinge of blue and thought it looked really clean. Now they're moving toward something a little warmer. This is a nice creamy white. The root of it is quite peachy, which means it goes well with yellows and greens. It's a classic color that goes across all genres and would work equally well in a traditional or a contemporary setting." -Josette Buisson - HouseBeautiful.com

FINE PAINTS OF EUROPE CLASSIC EUROPEAN ENAMEL WHITE 0001: "It's the purest white, with white pigment only — 100% titanium dioxide. Not toned in any direction. It's an artist's white, a finer white, with more luminosity. When you see it, you go, Wow! It's as if you have never really seen white before. I think a lot of people use this in high gloss on their trim, and in matte acrylic on the ceiling." -Emmet Fiore - HouseBeautiful.com

C2 PAINT MILK MOUSTACHE C2-080: "Everyone is looking for a white that works with absolutely everything and is never going to fail you. This is not too gray, not too yellow. It doesn't do that pink thing. It's like fresh snow with the first shadow of sunset on it. The absolute bright whiteness is gone but it's still crystal clear, just softened so that it's not glaring." -Harry Adler - HouseBeautiful.com

Advice on Choosing a Paint Color

"I'm always surprised when clients balk at color and never surprised when they realize the difference it makes. In a transitional space like a stair hall, you have freedom, so we tried a grayish modified blue — soft, but with great depth. Once the client saw how it enriched the space, the deal was done." — Madeline Stuart - HouseBeautiful.com

SHERWIN-WILLIAMS DOVER WHITE SW6385: "Our most popular color is a very soft, warm, inviting white. It doesn't really matter what part of the country you're in — this always works. It has none of that icy coolness and pairs nicely with yellows, greens, reds, blues, and those new shades of plum and purple. As people see and collect more stuff, I think they want those items to be the focus in a room. That's why they keep coming back to white walls." -Rebecca Spak - HouseBeautiful.com

The Best Grays

At first glance, this is a soft grayish putty. Then its golden undertones unfold as it catches the light and it radiates with warmth. It's like pale ashes with hidden embers glowing beneath them. It's an old warmth, and the color is always changing." -Tori Golub
