Vicente Wolf: Cool White Paint Colors

Clean and crisp, cool whites can be elegant, complex and relaxed

Vicente Wolf: Cool White Paint Colors

There are just as many whites as there are reds or greens.

Choose whites with the same care. For cool colors, choose a cool white from Vicente Wolf's Color Diaries to add crisp contrast. For warm colors, choose a warm white to make it less severe.

As a day moves from morning to night, white can shift from bright and cool to softer and warmer.

Wall Color: Commercial White PPG1025-1

Inspired by Lisbon

The artistic cobblestones of Lisbon are made from architectural rubble after the quake of 1775. It illustrates how whites should always be intentional. Don't use white as a default because you can't choose a color. It will look unfinished. Whites can be elegant, art-gallery, complex and relaxed.
