Benjamin Moore's Snow White is also a possibility.

doesn't BM have their plain base white, pre-tint? Could that be what is meant? I would ask a BM dealer

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Suzie's design philosophy is simple: "Keep it white," she says. When the Mecays originally remodeled their home, they attempted to use more color in the design, but it didn't mesh with the ocean and beach environment. With the shoreline as their main source of inspiration, the Mecays simplified the palette and used only natural materials such as driftwood, cotton and linens.Wall and ceiling paint: White, Benjamin Moore
