I love to show RELATEABLE & REAL homes, so ONLY use photos from my Online Colour Consulting clients. This means I don’t always have the quality pics I need (hence the ‘QUICK Review’), but DEFINITELY have some SUPER helpful info to help you on your way!

What type of paint colour is Sherwin Williams Casa Blanca? Is it a cream or yellow?

Casa Blanca is DEFINITELY a cream paint colour and because it’s a cream – it has yellow in it! However, the soft neutral base of Casa Blanca calms the yellow down, giving it a more muted, natural look vs being ‘day-glo’ yellow.

What are the undertones of Casa Blanca? Will it look yellow or orange?

When it comes to the undertones of Casa Blanca, it depends on how sensitive you are, because while it WILL LOOK YELLOW, it’s not as strong as some other cream paint colours as the neutral base, along with a subtle orange calms it down nicely. However, if you DON’T like yellow – you probably shouldn’t be looking at this type of cream paint colour and should check out something like THIS instead.

What’s the best way to sample Casa Blanca?

Like with every paint colour, I highly recommend using SAMPLIZE. Samplize is a peel & stick paint sample that you can easily move around your room for over HALF THE COST of traditional sample pots – and they deliver right to your front door!
