White is often a standard color in homes, so the idea of specifically painting your space white might seem unusual. But to HGTV star Leanne Ford, white is the perfect color, especially for an entryway. “It feels so heavenly to walk into a light box. Everything and everyone looks good,” she told Homes & Gardens, explaining white isn’t boring.
Fans, who know Ford from her HGTV shows “Restored by the Fords,” “Home Again with the Fords,” and “Rock the Block,” appreciate her modern, minimalistic style that feels lived in. While she adores light colors, including neutrals, white is her go-to. Still, not all shades of white are the same. She loves creamy whites with warm tones. Her favorites are Sherwin-Williams’ Shoji White, which she uses in her own home. The white she uses for her clients is Behr’s Ultra Pure White.
