White walls are a "thing". At Daly's, we are sending a lot of white paint out the door, for both modern and traditional homes; I was even interviewed this week for a Seattle Magazine design article focusing on white paint - no doubt, white is HOT.
One tip to keep in mind when working with white - make sure you choose a color carefully. Not all whites are created the same. Working with a design-oriented brand of paint will make sure you are working with a nuanced color recipe where there are multiple pigments in the paint, otherwise you run the risk of using a white that will look all wrong.
Two brands we represent, C2 Paint and Farrow & Ball, have explored white and figured out how to design colors that are both luminous and classic.
With that in mind, I thought I'd create a little inspiration gallery to get you headed down the right white path. Enjoy!
