White Is The New Grey

Oct 3, 2015 | Interior Design | 3 comments


5 years ago when I started Mile High Style, the color grey was first breaking into the mainstream as the next big thing. Replacing the tired tan and that outdated yellow-y cream, I’ve used some shade of light grey* in nearly every interior project, loving the results. Grey walls look modern and calm and go with every possible accent color- I’ve combined it with yellow and purple, dark blue and orange, brown and white, turquoise and yellow, green and cream, and the list goes on. But we’re getting to the point where it’s time to try something new, and I think that new is WHITE.

Obviously there is a big wide world of white paint colors, so sample (by painting directly to your wall) at least 5 different colors, ideally with different undertones. For my client’s North Boulder condo (pictured), we sampled 5 whites; one infused with a subtle blue, another quite grey, one a stark white, another a softer white. We opted for Moonlight White, but really, with white, you can’t go wrong.

*Benjamin Moore Balboa Mist and Revere Pewter are my two favorites.
