Roshe Run Hyperfuse Grey
The bright red shelves we were standing next to in the paint aisle were giving everything a pinkish glow and the bright lights of the aisles skewed all our choices.
Seven trips and test pots later, having walked multiple laps of the football pitched sized store to cool off, we finally figured out why nothing we chose was working.
Luckily, the reality is that there are approximately 180 different shades of white paint available to the budding painter/decorator. Just 180!
On my first trip to a well known home improvement store to get white paint for a friend newly purchased house, we grabbed a tin of paint, picked a colour Cream and said go paint was mixed and we went to paint the walls; still friends and enthusiastic about our first renovating challenge. Within hours the wall was painted, repainted (for that all important second coat), and dry.

White reflects light, brightening a room. Actually, not always. If your room is lacking natural light then some whites can make the room appear darker. They say white is easier to buy than other colours, but I challenge anyone to get it spot on first time!

We lapped the store, walking in separate directions to cool of from our tiff before heading back to the same spot amongst the colour charts and arguing again.
Turns out white is not white. Technically there are an unlimited number of whites. Some are more grey, more red, more yellow, more blue, more green you get the idea.
A fresh coat of paint is first on the list for many a new home owner. Budget friendly and easy to do yourself; instant results and a new lease of life. Tick, tick, tick. And there one colour that most reached for white. Simple right? Roshe Run Hyperfuse Grey Oh no.
From top left, clockwise: Cotton Cream, (Dulux, very pink for us), Snowy White (Taubmans, a tinge of grey/blue), White Beam (British Paints, a hint of brown beige for our walls, almost like barley), Dogwood Blossom (a lavender tinge), Winter Chic (British Paints, a dark beige tinge), and Natural White (Dulux, the of them all, but too bright for the age of the home).

What is it about white paint we have such faith in? It simplicity? The light reflection it offers? Or the fact that it seems to need less thought than other colours? All true. Until you faced with actually picking a white paint.

ready, your finished result will only be as good as the prep work you put in.
And if you do the maths, that just over $1,000 on test pots if you don get your focus in check first.

One person white is another cream, is another blue.
Always buy a test pot, let a patch dry and repaint.
Was it more cream? Was it more blue?
Test pots may seem expensive at $5 $7, but will save you repainting a whole Cream pink wall. Colour charts can only tell you so much.
Check our the paint companies websites for colour charts, but judge them with a little precaution as most computer screens display colours slightly differently.
The reality is that white is a colour which will leave you in wonderment when your sample pot doesn match the colour you agonised over.
The sample pots. Quite a collection!

On our second trip to the store we stood and stared at the white sample cards. We argued about what white was.
