Spring into a new season with this warm and welcoming neutral.
Looking for a fresh start? Alabaster’s bright and beautiful hue turns any room into a blank slate. Whether your style leans modern, minimal, or a blend of both, this versatile neutral can be the backdrop for everything.
Why We Love It
See how we brought Alabaster to life three different ways.
Let your artistic side flourish in a space that matches your creativity. A studio with white walls and sun-bleached colors is the ultimate blank canvas for self-expression to thrive. Keep the look light and airy with minimal touches to leave more space for letting the imagination run wild.
The Trend: Modern Boho
Get the Look: Natural Materials, Rounded Objects, Muted Colors
Ready to unwind? Using Alabaster in a space with texture on the wall adds a depth that makes you feel wrapped in comfort. Soften the brightness of white with a palette of muted colors and natural wood tones to keep the room grounded. This tonal balance of calming color creates the coziest place for rest and relaxation.
The Trend: Calming Hues
Get the Look: Warm Wood Tones, Organic Textures, Soft Knits
An organic modern space gets its comfort by borrowing from different design styles for a look that lasts a lifetime. While Alabaster’s hue is the perfect choice for blending designs, you can still add an unexpected spin that creates roots for your room. Painting the trim and built-ins with a pastel color grounds the space and draws the eye up while adding a playful touch.
The Trend: Modern Organic
Get the Look: Pastel Ceramics, Modern Fixtures, Tonal Fabrics

I would very much like to know what the underlying tones are.
Hi Laura! Alabaster SW 7008 has a drop of yellow in it.
We have a tuscan style kitchen. A kitchen redesign is not in the budget for us. I want to try to update the room with paint. The cabinets are a soft yellow with a brown glaze. Our kitchen table and chairs are dark work. I would like to paint the room a color that would tone down the yellow. Any suggestions for a white or another neutral that will make the room feel less “yellow”?
