Why are there so many shades of WHITE PAINT?


Prior to building our custom home, there was one decision I knew from Day 1.    And that was that I wanted to live in a White House.  Not to be confused with THE White House.  I promise to keep politics far far away from my beautiful space…

ANYHOW– I knew when we broke ground that the odds were definitely in favor of a white home!  What I didn’t know was that there would be 1 billion shades of white to choose from!!!  Like seriously though…why can’t life just be easy?  So here I am FINALLY deciding on that perfect shade of white stucco for #thelaydenlegacy

I have found that choosing an exterior white has been extremely difficult.  Are you surprised?  I bet you aren’t!

My husband told me he also is NOT surprised– as he reminds me daily that THE TIME HAS COME to choose the house exterior color.  Somehow almost two years into our new home construction project we are still married.  Who would have thought? Lol.

But in all reality, there are so many factors that play a part when looking at exterior white paints–beginning with the location of the home.  Then there is the rise and setting of the sun…  The undertones of the paint…  The size of the home.  If you have stumbled across this post in search of the perfect exterior white paint, I hope I have provided some inspiration, but I urge you to try sampling each of these on your own home before committing to a color.

Now tell me– Which WHITE should I choose?  I’m anxious to know your thoughts.  I think these colors all look slightly different but my husband is adamant about the fact that they all look exactly the same.  Am I the crazy one or is he? (I don’t really want an answer!)

As always, thank you so much for following our journey home.  I remind myself daily that “a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.”

    Alabaster has a warm hue, but I’m partial to Greek food so I pick Greek Villa 😁

    Is it Shoji White from Sherman Williams?

      Yes, It is Sherwin, and stucco companies can match their formula.

    I am looking for a white also for my stucco. I have a warm white almost beige right now which looks dirty. I want a cooler white but not too cold. I dont want a strong white since a few houses on my block went super white like chalk. So clean white, not too stark and not too cool. Suggestions?

    Look great! was this for a stucco installation or stucco repair? Or was it just a repaint of existing stucco? Looks great, either way.

      It was a new construction.
