Thanks!Hi Charlotte, it sounds like you’ve had a bit of a challenge!
Shaker Beige, Ashen Tan, Rever Pewter, many others.
Hmm. Any other suggestions?Hi Cesilee, yes north facing rooms can be hard, particularly ones without a lot of light so i’m not surprised to hear that Agreeable is falling flat!
Thanks again for sharing your expertise. Now there ISN’T an easy way to cross-reference as there are very few colours that are the same. Is it normal that my paint sample is cold and is different from the paint swatch?That is weird Barbara as yes, Alabaster is soft and creamy! Finish : Estate … I made a mistake on a color when we remodeled and I am trying to get it straight now. Please note that these are products I know/use and recommend to my customers.

Limited number of windows or smaller windows (or no windows), or even old windows that have many panes or broken seals that are fogged up and therefore let in less light.4. Thank you!Hi Connie, I would lean into High Reflective White I think :).INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR
What are your thoughts? My combo living/dining/kitchen has great windows up to the 12′ ceilings.Hi Amy! The ceilings are over 10.
If “nothing” works, then maybe just try a white. Antique White helps make the molding and other wall items just pop. I think that was Benjamin Moore Black 2123-10 (they got really creative with the naming of that one I did it in eggshell finish, but I wish I’d done flat or matte. I’ve noticed on other post about adding 4 oz of white pigment to different colors to counter act the dingy factor, do you think that could work with Silver Satin?Hi Rebekah, yes, adding 4 ounces can just slightly clean up colours!
Now in a northern space it can certainly pick up a bit of the lighting coming in, but the swatch would do the same thing. Each of these colors tends to work. While a higher LRV may help, it won’t solve the real issue. The house faces due north so many of the main rooms will be north facing so I have been working on researching colors that might work in north facing rooms over the course of the past few months.
I hope it helps .Kylie, I love your posts – so much information and great to know you’re available for in-depth consulting work! make a picture window), make a larger window or add a sky light.And, I want you to remember that these are suggestions. I love the color but concerned about it turning cool or blue.
You know what, if it’s a short list (ie: approx 5 colours), send me an email and I’ll let you know the ‘closest comparables’ in SW – knowing that they won’t be the same, but will hopefully do a ‘similar thing’. I’m probably going to use the same downstairs. I have a 1350 square foot condo in WPB and it is south facing, but as it faces towards another building (across quite an expansive garden), it only gets sun light in the first few feet of the condo, the rest does not get direct light.
Our house was previously owned by someone who loved pink, not light pink, but middle of the card pink/mauve. Have another glass.Long story short, while there are the certainly the wrong whites for a north-facing room, there are also the.White Dove has an LRV of 85, so it’s well into the white range, although it does have a beautiful softness to it.The LRV of Simply White is 90 – meaning it’s pretty darned bright. felt pads, doggie socks,Ebook – What to look for when buying a home with hardwood,helpful tools to make the job faster and easier,Best paint colors if you’re selling a home,Most popular colors for painting cabinets,California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) Policy.
You see low lighting can make white look dull…and it can wash out many paint colors, so you need to choose the right ones, and I’ve selected 7 great paint shades to help you.So the natural light gives your room more gray undertones and shadows making the room appear cooler. This was in my windowless powder room. inspired me. It looks more bluish during the day and more gray in the evening.Grecian Ivory is very classy and sophisticated.
Creamy however, is more of an off-white that has more yellow/creamy body to it and I wouldn’t do it everywhere.
I really don’t want a gray bathroom and I think Wickham Gray could bring our more color from the undertones. I was thinking SW On the Rocks or Crushed Ice at 25% lighter OR SW Pure White on the walls to match the trim.
So they can make the shade with their own paint.Please note that some of this site’s links are affiliate links, and TheFlooringGirl.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.
It’s fun and affordable .I just read your advice about what colours of white to use in a north facing room.
We are building a new home that has an open concept. Thank you for all the help and feedback you have been giving all of us!I have a question and would love your guidance.
You know, Pier 1 has some fantastic chairs. White Dove is fantastic. At NO ADDITIONAL COST TO YOU, I will earn a small commission, if you purchase them. What’s the difference between a good white and a bad white?
Never knew picking colors could be so difficult!HI Kylie! I would really appreciate your thoughts.Oooo, both of those could be really pretty!
