While CIL offers a wide range of colour to suite any decor style or mood, it can often be tricky to pick the right white for the trim to finish your space. With a myriad of options, here are a few favourites…
Inspiration White is a good middle-of-the-road white that easily works with both warm and cool toned colours. In this living room, the slightly warm undertone comes through when used on the architectural details in front of the back drop of the deep grey-blue of the walls.
Crisp Linen is a welcoming warm white that complements softer wall colours, natural textures, and wood tones.
White Mountain is a slightly blue and cooler white that provides just the right contrast to more intense colours.
As with any paint colour, pick up a sample chip of these or any other favourite CIL white of yours and ‘live’ with it in your space for a while to see how the nuances in each shade work in the different light of morning, day, and night. And for further white inspiration and a handy tool in helping you choose the right white, pick up CIL’s ‘white ideas for your home’ colour selection card (available at CIL paint retailers) that includes 32 of CIL’s white paint colour options along with helpful tips on colour coordination and calculating the amount of paint you’ll need for your project.
