They can be used differently, either on walls or as accents or trims, always maintaining an elegant aesthetic. Let’s look at a few of them.

The type you choose should complement your furnishings. For the walls, a few white paints worth looking at include Clare’s stark white Fresh Kicks, the warmer Glacier White by Benjamin Moore, or Farrow & Ball’s Dimpse.
