[ LINEN WHITE is ] absolutely classic.
A bit warm and not overly crisp,
meaning it never looks brand new. Fades into the background, offering support to the other colors in the room.
My kitchen cabinets are linen white, since
I wanted the room to look lived in instantly. ”
– Celerie Kemble

When in doubt, LINEN WHITE. ”

You can phone that in.
It might seem like a cop – out, but it works beautifully.
I use it when people are unsure. They want something
light and airy, but not stark white.
No matter what light you put it in, it looks good. “
