Egret White – a popular soft warm neutral paint colour

With trends leaning into the warmer end of things, it’s no surprise that I’m seeing more warm grays, taupes, greiges and EVEN BEIGE paint colours popping up in my inbox. This is why today we’re going to spend some time with what SHOULD be one of the best warm neutrals on the market…

In order to show you RELATEABLE & REAL homes, I ONLY use photos from my Online Colour Consulting clients. This means I don’t always have the quality photos I need or the RIGHT photos, but DEFINITELY have some SUPER helpful info to help you on your way!

What type of paint colour is Egret White, is it greige, taupe or a warm gray?

While it’s up for grabs as to whether Egret White is a warm gray or taupe, one thing it ISN’T is a greige. Greige paint colours tend to favour a green undertone, which is one hue that you WON’T find in Egret White. What WILL you find? Keep on reading!

If you have a north-facing room, with the degree of gray in it, you can expect Egret White to lean a bit more into its gray side while DEFINITELY retaining some passive warmth.

If you have a south-facing room or a room with a lot of western afternoon sunshine, Egret White will lean into its warm side without going FULL beige on you.

What’s the LRV of Egret White?

Egret White has an LRV of 70, putting it in between the light and off-white range.

If you have a dark room, either due to not enough interior lighting or natural light, Egret White could look a bit dingy and won’t come to life. On the other hand, if you have a VERY BRIGHT ROOM, Egret White WILL wash out quite a bit – as will any colour with a higher LRV like this.

What are the undertones of Egret White? 

Egret White has subtle undertones nodding just a TOUCH towards a warm violet, so a violet with a wink o’ pink in it. These undertones are quite passive but could show up to the party more if you partnered them with a surface with green hues.

Is Egret White a good colour for the exterior of my home? 

As far as the best colours for exteriors go, Egret White can suit some roofs, especially those in the states that are more inclined towards orange hue roofs, stonework and driveways. However, there are OTHER colours I would look at first. OVERALL, Egret White often looks WARMER than expected on an exterior and isn’t a popular choice.

Is Egret White a popular colour for kitchen cabinets?

While Egret White COULD be popular for kitchen cabinets, especially with trends leaning warmer, because of its particular depth, it’s tricky to partner up with wall colours if you want to see ANY type of contrast. You either need white walls or a paint colour with an LRV approx 15-20 points lower.
