Sherwin Williams Casa Blanca: LRV, Undertones and a Little More
When it comes to popular cream paint colors, Casa Blanca isn’t on the top of the list, but that ISN’T because it’s not gorgeous – it just hasn’t been DISCOVERED yet!
I love to show RELATEABLE & REAL homes, so ONLY use photos from my Online Color 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 color is Sherwin Williams Casa Blanca? Is it a cream or yellow?
Casa Blanca is DEFINITELY a cream paint color 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’s the LRV of Casa Blanca?
Casa Blanca has an LRV of 76. This puts it QUITE NICELY in the off-white range.
Not sure what LRV is? It could save your paint lovin’ life – read all about it HERE.
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 colors 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 color and should check out something like THIS instead.
What’s the best way to sample Casa Blanca?
Like with every paint color, 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!

Casa Blanca is popular in certain crowds – that is, crowds that love the slightly heavier cream look vs the more trendy whites and off-whites.

GOOD QUESTION! Every color has its own particular nuances and there will be NO perfect match – you WILL see shifts in undertones, temperature and depths, but you could check out similar colors such as…
- Benjamin Moore Navajo White
And if you’re thinking of color matching between brands (ie: getting BM to make an SW paint color), you might want to read THIS first.
What type of paint colors look good with Casa Blanca?
Casa Blanca isn’t too fussy and can look pretty with a range of colors, such as…
- Some beige colors, as long as they’re a good shot darker than Casa Blanca with similar undertones

- Some green-blue blends
However, it can be QUITE fussy when it comes to neutrals such as gray and greige, so you’ll want to sample carefully!
