Andy was super generous and let me paint all the main walls in our kitchen, living and dining area white (it's all one room since it's an open concept); but we painted all the shiplap walls gray for some color and contrast. You can see a bit of the progress here.
The problem with painting walls white is there are a million different shades of white. I'm serious...choosing the right white was super stressful. I didn't want our house to look like a stark, cold hospital room. I wanted it to look warm, but not yellow or dingy. I googled "choosing white paint" and of course the perfect white paint color is completely partial to the preference of each individual.
After driving myself crazy going through dozens of white paint chips and researching, I finally just went with the suggestion of my contractor...Swiss Coffee from Kelly Moore. It's a really popular trim color, so I was concerned about it being too bright...but I really, really love how it's looking so far. Once we've finished the final coats of paint I'll be sure to post pictures!
Do you have white walls or do you crave color? If you do have white walls, are they hard to keep clean?
