We’ve all been there… standing in the paint aisle at the hardware store, debating. How can there be so many different white paint colors? Painting the walls in your home shouldn’t be this hard, right? 

When I first began transitioning to a home filled with lighter and brighter soft neutral and creamy paint colors, I realized that this dilemma is a real one. Every color looks different in different homes, lighting situations, and rooms. 

In fact, I’ve spent a lot of time researching paint colors and all of their details so you don’t have to, and shared extensively since these are some of my most commonly-asked questions! 

I’ve shared all about the neutral greys, creams and beiges we used in our old Colonial home, some of the creams we’ve used for our current home, my favorite cream paint color for furniture and exterior colors for our Tudor and the Colonial.

Why You’ll Love Benjamin Moore White Dove

For many years now, both dark and light grays have tended to be the choice of homeowners. I think a lot of people are afraid of “boring” stark white walls and they don’t want their homes to feel cold or unwelcoming. 

Thankfully, there are certain whites that do NOT lend those feelings and this is one of the best. This one works beautifully on both the walls and trim of any home. I’ve also seen it used on kitchen cabinets with great results! 

It’s a flexible white color with more of a greige undertone vs the yellow undertone in so many creamy whites, and it transitions beautifully in a variety of lighting situations. 

Whichever way you look at this paint color, White Dove paint color is a total winner! 

Benjamin Moore White Dove Trim Color 

This color goes far beyond the walls in your family room or dining room! In our particular situation, I wanted to try it out as a trim color. 

We used BM White Dove as the semi gloss trim in our spa bathroom, in combination with Soft Chamois as the wall color. It worked perfectly and I think this is a great example of combining this color with other soft whites and creams.
