our fall paint palette with Sherwin-Williams
White is the foundation of most interior paint schemes, but it can be hard to figure out which white to use when there are so many to choose from. The quality of natural light your room receives, the artificial light at night and the other elements in the room, from floors and furniture to the greenery or view outside your windows, will all influence how white is perceived.
A bright, pure white, like Sherwin-Williams’ SW 7006 Extra White, shown here, creates a gallery-like backdrop that shows other colours and modern architecture to advantage. Cool whites like SW 7004 Snowbound, below, have grey or blue undertones that can feel modern and crisp. Warm whites like SW 7551 Greek Villa, bottom, have yellow or red undertones that can feel soft and inviting, particularly in older homes.

1. use different shades of the same colour to create depthInstead of standard white, try painting trim a deeper shade of the wall colour, or use the same hue in a high-gloss finish.
It gives darker or richer colours more depth, looks more polished and—bonus points—is easier to clean.
2. try a satin finish on walls instead of the typical flat finish paint
A darker hue can actually visually enlarge the space because it makes corners disappear and furnishings pop.
3. in a small, dark room, don’t assume you have to go with white or light colours
