Whiter Shade of Pale

If you've ever tried to pick out "white paint", we're sure you realize there is no such thing. Getting white right is tricky. The Scouts share with you some of our favorite white paint colors: Robin: "Navajo White, by Sherwin Williams, is one of my favorites. It's incredibly versatile and goes with almost any color palette." (hint: look for it in our space at the 2010 Designer Showhouse) Jean: "I love the color of my English creamware, so I looked for a paint that color for my trim. I found Seltzer Water from Lowes (American Tradition) to be perfect!" Dana: "Vanilla Milkshake by Benjamin Moore. It’s white, not stark, with a hint of soft grey. Think it might be in my living room soon. Unfortunately as soon as I like a color it ends up in Pottery Barn!"
Debbie: "My go-to for white trim is Ultra Pure White by Behr. It's a very clean, crisp, bright white."
Other whites the Scouts often turn to are Dover White by Sherwin Williams- it's actually the color of the Studio downstairs, Alabaster by Sherwin Williams, and Ballet White by Benjamin Moore.
In the Dayton area and need help selecting the perfect white for your space? Give the Studio a call and schedule a personal color consultation with one of the Scouts. Find yourself elsewhere? The Scouts can still help you with your color palette. Send an email to the Studio at info@vintagescout.com letting us know what you need design help with and we'll get back to you with a quote and what you need to send us.

Oh great picks! I must agree with you white is quite hard to pick out.
