Benjamin Moore Simply White

My favorite white is undoubtedly "Simply White" by Benjamin Moore. It is incredibly versatile (fresh in a historic home, neither stark nor too creamy for a modern space) and totally classic. It is its very name - simply white.... and does not have any distinct underlying hues of green, yellow, gray, or pink. It is particularly useful for trim work, very rich and clean looking in a high gloss.
