"This is a perfect off-white for brightening up a space and making your room seem larger. It's warm, cozy, and clean for a relaxing environment. It's also extremely versatile, so you can play around with different accent colors and decorative pillows or throws," says Anna Franklin, an interior designer and founder of Stone House Collective.

"For bedrooms, I love utilizing soft neutrals and warmer tones like soft creams," says Weinstein. "I paint the entire room—from moldings to ceilings—and it creates a calming effect. It's warm and welcoming without taking over the space and I find it to be so much fresher than a cold gray. Muslin is a great transitional color that works in almost any room in the home."

"This shade is described as 'a totally pure white' and that's just what it is. The biggest challenge with white paint is when it leans gray, blue, or yellow, and skews the look you were going for. All White is a gorgeous, pure white that doesn't have an underlying tone and it's perfect for the bedroom," says Alessandra Wood, a design expert and VP of Style at Modsy.
