There are so many great points about going white on the walls. I particularly like the point about 'painting everything white and your home will look like a builder's flip.' We have had some clients that want a clean look, but have a hard time with 'white'. We have had great success in this case with Sherwin Williams Grecian Ivory. It's a little warmer. It especially looks nice in areas with good natural light.
