All the details about one of my favorite paint colors, Sherwin Williams Zurich White .

We first used Sherwin Williams Zurich White in our previous home {photo below} throughout the entire second level on recommendation of a friend and painter.

We loved it so much that we decided to use it again in our current home throughout some of the main level including the entryway, living room, family room, and dining room. You can see above and below the difference of a East/West facing room than a North/South facing room, but it still feels great.

In the living room we opted to not only paint the walls with it, but the all the trim including bookcases, crown moulding, and floor moulding as well, just one sheen higher. Throughout the rest of our home we paired it with an untinted white paint.

This color is perfect for those who love grey, but would like something a touch warmer or a slightly greige tone or if you’re transitioning from a grey room.

The only room I don’t particularly love it in is our dining room. It has a unique lighting situation because it receives very indirect light. Just outside the window there is a screened-in porch to the left and breakfast room to the right, so it receives a lot of shadows, making it feel a little too grey and cool for my taste.

You can see how much warmer it feels with direct sunlight in my South-facing office.
