Your Guide to the Perfect Shade of White

Today starts the beginning of our Paintzen Color Series!

Choosing the perfect shade of paint is no easy task. Even if you generally know what you’re looking for, the options can be overwhelming. Over the next few months, we’ll be breaking down some of the most popular PPG Paints in each color family to help make selecting the right paint color easier than ever.

This week, we’re all about whites!

Radisson - Paint Color

White is classic and timeless. For those looking to embrace a minimalistic palette, something soft and airy is often a must. Pure whites or whites with cool undertones are great for bathrooms, kitchens, or any room that you want to feel fresh and crisp. Try PPG Raddison or Delicate White. For a more cozy aesthetic, living rooms and bedrooms, try a shade of white with a warmer, golden undertone. China White and Horseradish are two of the most popular warm whites.

Shades of White - White Paint

Although it may seem counter-intuitive, white paint is actually a great choice for people who love color. It serves as a clean and versatile palette for you to display artwork or wall coverings and will make an accent wall, bright cabinets,  or fun patterned furniture pop. Whites like PPG Gypsum and Garlic Clove help bring out the vibrancy in other colors.

Delicate White - NYC Apartment

Mindy Kaling from The Mindy Project chose a simple white when Paintzen painted her New York City apartment. In rooms that are flooded with natural light, white makes the room feel pure, airy and clean. You can see here the white walls serve as a perfect palette for Mindy’s artwork, rugs, and other decors.

White Living Room - Navy Accent Wall

White Trim - House Exterior

Bright white exterior trim is gorgeous when paired with light, creamy beige and black accents. Paintzen painted the exterior of this condo just outside of Washington D.C. to create a classy entertaining space for a client. Creamy off-white walls and white trim gave the client the freedom to play around with patio furniture and some plant life.
