Choose The Right White Paint
Creamy and rich, warm whites suggest opulence and intimacy. Suited to traditional colour schemes they work particularly well in older-style homes and those with a more traditional approach to decor.
Warm whites with tan and khaki undertones complement natural materials such as warm timbers and stone. If timber floors are quite dark, steer away from very creamy colours, using a soft white instead.
This palette brings everything in, so choose neutral colour schemes for furnishings and wall treatments.
Where it works best
North and west-facing rooms.
Bedrooms appear soothing and luxurious with creamy white walls, which work well with other white and neutral accessories.
Dining areas come alive with sunny whites, which are considered delicious colours.
Kitchens look less sterile when painted in an ivory shade, particularly if the cabinets are also white.
