White, one would think it is just that but when it comes to paint colors it is way more than just white. Today I thought I would quickly review 3 whites from Benjamin Moore and why I like them. You will also notice that these whites all have colors in them. White is the hardest color to pick because of the undertones of color in each white. Make sure when picking your white that you know what the undertone of the white is and to sample your white against your surrounding colors to make sure it all works together!
And here they are:
China white can provide you with a crisp clean look that I just love. It has a bit of blue in it, so it pairs well with natural finishes and cool paint colors. I use this when wanting a contrast against beautiful wood floors and a grey under-toned paint color.
2. WHITE DOVE
A go to white for its yellow pink crispness. It looks great on these cabinets and also for trim and ceiling. It is a classic white. I would suggest to consider this white with your next remodel.

3. LINEN WHITE
Benjamin Moore Linen White is a warm alternative to a stark white. With a warm yellow undertone, this white is just as the name suggests, can you imagine wearing white linen on a summer day at the beach? Now you can have this feeling everyday in your home with this great white!
So there are SO many great whites, I could do this list again with different choices, but these are 3 great whites to consider first. As you can see when they are all put together, China White has a bit of a blue undertone which will convey a crisp contrast if desired. White dove still has blue but with just a hint of yellow which makes it a bit warmer than the China White. Lastly, Linen white has a yellow undertone which is much warmer then the other two, a great choice for tiles with the same undertone as pictured above.
