This column originally appeared on Living Etc. as part of their “Ask Athena” series. Ahead, Athena helps to solve one reader’s query with how to choose a white paint to brighten up their space.
I’m such a fan! I have both of your books and really enjoy your style as much as the recipes. My question is, how to choose the right white paint for the walls? My windows are not floor to ceiling like yours, but it’s a fairly light house, and the main living space is south facing.
There are just so many whites and I don’t know where to start—hoping for your recommendations on brands, or types of white to look out for. And what finishes to choose? My furniture is quite dark which is why I want to brighten up the space on the walls.
