Here, see Benjamin Moore's Balboa Mist, a timeless cream that shifts richer or deeper with shadow and brightness. - Elle Decor
ALMOST WHITE - “There’s nothing more classic than an all white palette. And while pure white is a go-to for many homemakers, 2019 will be the year of “almost-whites.” These shades offer subtle nuances that adapt to different lighting, furniture, and surrounding colors. For those who crave a minimalist palette that still feels dynamic, an almost-white shade is the fool-proof choice.” - Elle Decor
