Stone White 11, Farrow & Ball.

"This has a vintage, mission feeling to it that I like. They call it a white, but it's really a chalky grey-green. It's beautiful with gumwood trim, wood floors, in fact any natural wood."

"If you want the warmth of yellow but are unsure -- and I consider yellows to be the hardest colour in the palette to work with -- you might want to try going for an amber or cloudy yellow instead. This is a beautiful, soft greyed yellow that looks marvellous with Cloud White [Benjamin Moore OC-40] trim."

Silver Blonde 2141, Pratt & Lambert.

"A mushroomy tone like this one is very versatile. It looks equally lovely with red, or with cream upholstery. This is what you'd call the most ‘circular' of colours, in that it looks lovely with both light and dark woods and accents. It's a clean, modern, almost Scandinavian look."

 

 

Note: Swatch colour may appear different on some monitors.
