The Best White Paint Colours

My Favourite White Paint Colours | lark & linen
One of the most frequently asked questions that comes my way is most definitely “what’s the best white paint colour?” And I mean, I totally get it. White paint may very well be the hardest of the bunch to choose from – with so many options, each varying wildly from paint swatch to application, selecting the right one can be intimidating at best. But not to fear. With over a decade of white paint selection under my belt, if you find yourself second guessing your choice, you’ve come to the right place. Following are a few of my very favourite tried and true white paint colours – the ones I turn to again and again and I’m happy to report, not one of them have yet to lead me astray.

Benjamin Moore, White Dove

A designer favourite for a reason. Its warm and creamy undertones
feel cozy and inviting, while still reading *white*

Farrow & Ball, All White

With just the slightest pink undertone, this shade makes just about anyone glow.
It’s great for bathrooms for this very reason

Sherwin Williams, Alabaster

If you’re looking for more of a neutral white, Alabaster is your gal.
With slight beige undertones, she’s soft, pretty and has just the slightest depth, in the very best way. 

Benjamin Moore, Oxford White

Arguably my go-to white. With bluer undertones, Oxford White is crisp and clean and truly looks *white*
in every single application I’ve used him in to date

Benjamin Moore, Chantilly Lace

Similarly, Chantilly Lace is in heavy use around here (almost always on all trim, doors, and ceilings)

Benjamin Moore, Simply White

Slightly warmer than Oxford & Chantilly, Simply White is most definitely 
a mainstay in most designer arsenals

Benjamin Moore, Calm

I’ve used Calm a billion times over, and while it looks quite tan on a paint swatch, it
reads as creamy greige-white on walls and cabinetry

Sherwin Williams, White Flour

Similarly, White Flour has slightly yellow undertones, which makes it a creamy
and delicious yet still infinitely neutral option

Farrow & Ball, Wevet

With just the slightest hint of grey, wevet feels totally timeless and absolutely beautiful
