Our favourite White DULUX range:
From the variations of the colour white we would recommend in particular an Off-White shade for interior walls such as Dulux Golden Jasmine 3, Dulux Chiffon White 1 or Dulux Chalky White 1. It helps to soften the overall look while being bright and pure. White colour has a wide range of use from kitchen cabinets, appliances, chairs or lighting as it sits nicely with any colour from the colour spectrum. Too much white can be cold, isolating and empty. It implies a feeling of sterility and therefore we would recommend using it in combination with other colours unless you are aiming for the Scandinavian or monochrome design.
