Shades of White...
A big joke going around the house lately, there may be 50 Shades of Grey, but how many shades of white are there?
As you know I am a big fan of Farrow and Ball Paint. I haven't met a color I didn't like. I picked out some whites to paint walls and cabinets. Funny when you think of white it seems like a non-color. Not with the F&B folks. Whites are anything but. They have personality, and depth.
Cabinets are Shaded White, which is described as "neither too warm nor too cool. It has a gentle grayness." Not to be confused with the wall color of Schoolhouse White which is described as "timeless, and familiar" Or even the ceiling, All White which is described "containing no other pigment except for white, creating the softest most sympathetic colour without the colder blue undertones of a brilliant white."
Of course there is always Joa's White, which is not really a white at all. It's a "light and contemporary taupe, named after the first color consultant Joa" . It is absolutely perfect in the guest bedroom, and creates a warm and cozy environment.
As you can see there is nothing boring about white, however, it is fun to mix in a little real color once in a while.
