Back today with another popular wall pant color – Benjamin Moore Decorators White!
Benjamin Moore Decorators White
I’m really happy that so many of you are finding these blog posts about interior wall paint colors helpful.
Based on all the great feedback on my post about Benjamin Moore’s White Dove, I thought I’d focus in on another white paint we’ve personally used in our home a lot; Benjamin Moore Decorators White.
If you’re looking for a beautiful, crisp white color for your next home decor project- this could be it!
the first time we went with Decorator’s White.
This wall paint is a forever favorite of the design world, so I’ve known about this classic white paint color for a long time.
When it came time to redesign my oldest daughter’s bedroom from toddler to “big girl” room – (this was about 9 years ago!) I knew this pure white paint color would be the perfect choice.
You can read more about the transformation of my daughter’s room here.
The photo below was from an HGTV magazine feature of our former home.
This cutie is now a college student! Crazy, but I guess I’m straying from the paint color so…
Back to this white wall winner!
Both of my daughters chose Decorator White for their new bedrooms.
Back in 2014 when we moved from New York to our current home here in Connecticut, I let both my daughters choose the color for their bedrooms.
They both knew right away they wanted to go with white walls.
Based on how great it looked in my oldest daughter’s former bedroom, we knew Decorators White would be the winner and didn’t even bother with paint samples here.
The fresh, modern all white look of their current teen girl bedrooms complements both girl’s individual style perfectly.
Below are two photos of their current bedrooms from our home’s feature on One Kings Lane.

choosing to go with this beautiful white paint for almost our entire vacation home.
Several years ago we bought a vacation home in Florida.
This was before we moved to Connecticut, but after having used Decorator’s White in my daughter’s bedroom in New York.
The Florida home had decent bones, but the decor was very dated.
We needed to make a few quick decisions to update the interiors.
I knew an all white backdrop would help this home look fresh and modern.
Too many choices can always cause “analysis paralysis” – I’ve seen this with myself first hand.
We had an opportunity to have our vacation home painted while we were home, back north. So, there was no time for samples or second guessing.
On a leap of faith I chose to do the majority of the home in Decorator’s White.
This included all the open living spaces, kitchen cabinets, bedrooms, bannisters and trim work.
It turned out to be the best decision.
Coupled with our blue furniture pieces and some colorful art, this home now has a contemporary coastal look to it.
Exactly what we were going for!
As you can see, we’re big fans of this classic white paint color.
Decorators White has stood the test of time (and homes) for us.
Benjamin Moore’s Decorator’s White is ideal if you’re looking to paint a room a cool white color.
By cool, I mean it has what’s considered a blue undertone, whereas a warmer white would have more of a yellow/pink undertone.
Depending on the light and time of day, this color appears to look both off white and pure white.
However, if you’re leaning more towards using a gray paint color, you’ll want to check out this post here.
Ultimately you need to love the paint colors you choose for your home.
Which is why I can’t recommend trying it out as a sample in your home first.
Perhaps this is so obvious, but even the surrounding light from one room to another can differ, this will always change the look of any wall paint color.
Be sure to test the color in natural and artificial light too!
Be patient in this process and live with a few samples for a few days before making your final decision.
Also, another great way to test out a paint color (while I haven’t personally tried this) are to get large self sticking paint samples.
This sounds so great!
No messy paint cans to deal with before you commit! Win/win!
If you’re at all curious, you can find them here and try it out as a sample in your home first!
