For a similar wall color, try Benjamin Moore's Decorators White in eggshell or satin finish.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Country Modern: A Balancing Act
White Planks! Rough-hewn Beams! An Antique Oar. These things make it country while the neutral palette and spare furnishings make it modern.
Becky Harris added this to I Spy: Oars and Paddles
The wood of this old oar ties into the rough hewn beams on the ceiling. It's also a nice vertical element in the horizontal planks.
Lisa Frederick added this to Clean Start: Fresh-Faced White Planking
Look at the beautiful interplay of lines and curves here. The strong horizontal and vertical planes are counterbalanced by the gentle curve of the planked walls that frame the stairwell.
