Interior Designers Reveal Their Favorite White Paints

The Perfect White Paint
Any skilled designer knows that selecting the perfect white paint is anything but simple. What’s a seemingly basic element—the essence of simplicity—proves to be one of the most complex
decisions with hundreds of possibilities. We asked 11 decorators to share their tried-and-true favorites when it comes to this dynamic shade of nothing.Who: Eric Cohler, What: China White, RMI-74, Benajmin Moore

Why: “It seldom fails me, no matter where in the country I use it. It
doesn’t break green or pink, even in strange San Francisco light. When
held up against pure white it has an off-white or greige appearance, but
on its own, it holds up as true white—but with a little more body. And
make sure you get it in low-VOC or no-VOC.”

Who: Brad Ford, What: All White, No. 2005, Farrow & Ball

Why: “It's like a good friend. Easy to be around, dependable, and it makes
you and all the things around you look terrific. It stays consistent in
any light, but in the afternoon, it can really make a room feel like
it’s glowing. And while it works for any room, it’s especially nice for a
space with great artwork.”
