Color of The Month

Shoji White

SW 7042

Warm your home with a soothing neutral that’s wrapped in comfort.

Set the tone for your home with a hue that’s grounded in function and elegance. Minimal but welcoming, Shoji White embraces the best of both worlds and provides the perfect backdrop for carrying the warm modernist trend throughout your home. 

Why We Love It

See how we brought Shoji White to life in three different rooms.

Heart of the Home

Kitchens are the gathering place where life’s little moments are made into memories. Melt into this haven with a shade of white that’s as welcoming as the conversations that await. Complement this warm hue with wooden accents and fresh cut flowers to give this space its lived-in coziness.

Nestled in Neutrals

Like good company, Shoji White brings the best out of every space. Create a dual-purpose living room designed for relaxing and entertaining, where the color flows from room to room as seamlessly as the conversation. Use natural fiber rugs and warm wooden tones to add even more cozy cues everyone can nestle into.

Bathed in Beauty

Seeking refuge and respite? Line your bathroom walls in this muted hue that marries modern lines with soft touches to create the ultimate escape. Add a focal point to your space with a warm contrasting hue and allow natural light to bring out the gentle glow of Shoji White’s Zen style.

  1. Hello and HELP! we recently ordered SW Shoji for our new build and it’s on the walls. The trim and cabinet color we initially thought we would use was Pure White. I am having second thoughts because it seems a bit harsh. We mostly have south facing windows. I want enough distance between the 2 colors to get a distinction. My cabinets are quite dark and floors are a mid tone LVP with some movement in warm tones. Can you recommend another color white?

      Hi Denise! Check out both Cheviot SW 9503 and White Snow SW 954 for other white options to be paired with your SW 7041 Shoji White. Thanks again!

  2. What do you think of Shoji White for trim/doors with Shiitake kitchen cabinets and Evergreen Fog on the walls in an open concept kitchen/dining/living? I want cozy, warm feel in a craftsman style.

      Hi April! Shoji White may look a little drab or gloomy next to Shitake and Evergreen Fog. Consider instead a cleaner white for your trim. Look at:
      Alabaster SW 7008
      Greek Villa SW 7551
      It is always best to look at color in your lighting. Order some free sample chips from our website to determine which color will work best for you.
