Alabaster has been a popular shade of white for several years and shows no signs that it’s going anywhere.
Alabaster is a lovely, warm white paint color. It technically has yellow undertones, but not so much that it will look bright yellow, thanks to a neutral base that cools it down just enough.
The LRV of Alabaster, or Light Reflectance Value, is 82 so it has more depth to its color (100 being the brightest, pure white).
It has a bit more warmth to it than Benjamin Moore White Dove (another popular choice for a warmer white) but doesn’t come across as yellow as Benjamin Moore Simply White can, thanks to that neutral base.
I think it looks amazing, modern, and just so lovely and soft on trim and doors. Just make sure it’s a whole house trim color and that it doesn’t meet a “truer” white anywhere along the way!
This is a perfect example of making the walls appear much creamier, and less “white” than if it was all the same color.
