As anyone who's wandered down the paint aisle at Home Depot can attest, there are hundreds of swatches and samples to cull through in search of the perfect shade. Between slight variations in undertones and the need to take natural light into consideration, selecting the best white paint presents a particularly daunting challenge. The stakes are surprisingly high—after all, the wrong shade can make your space look as startlingly bright as a hospital hallway.
Because the right color can make or break your space, we asked some of our favorite interior designers to reveal their go-to hues—and we're taking note of these pros' picks. Ranging from clean and crisp to warm and welcoming, we're narrowing the selection of seemingly endless swatches down to the six shades interiors designers swear by.
