Warm whites


I've been browsing through different swatches of white to paint the new space - aiming to find something crisp and clean yet still warm and inviting. I love the mix of different whites in this beautiful space by French interior design firm Hand, Lyon. Warm, inviting neutral tones and a rich blend of textures playfully mixed with mid-century modern furniture and classic architecture makes the space seem more comfortable and relaxed.

P.S - Anyone have a favourite white paint to recommend ?

i don't have a favorite white paint to recommend (sorry) but i did want to comment on that awesome hanging mobile in the second shot. adds some definitely quirk to the space.

The mobile was my favourite too! So fun and a little quirky - I wonder how hard it would be to make one...?

Oh I was hoping for some great whites too so I'll have to check in later today. I do love my trim paint...Pratt & Lambert Seed Pearl.

cloud white by Benjamin Moore - a nice warm white

Yes it is so hard finding the perfect paint. It all depends on the light and how it travels in the rooms.

I don't have a favourite swatch number to give you.

The rooms you featured look great - especially no 2.

Good luck on your hunt.

P.S. Though more of a 'grey expert' you may want to drop Donna over at 'A Perfect Gray' a note. She is great with colour. x

That mobile is pretty great! Love the artwork in the first room as well.

I don't have a white paint to recommend, but just wanted to say I love the warmth of that living room. Perfect for after-dinner drinks or afternoon tea :)

How interesting, I never realized how much gold can go into white before it turns beige. It is lovely. No, no help from the color dummy.

The book i bought Colors for your home which i recently blog about would really help out. I love your inspiration pics though!

I really like the added touch of the rug and how it's a warmer shade of white. It really anchors the space without overpowering it.
