Best Whites to pair with Pale Oak:

White Dove by Benjamin Moore is always one of my favourites!



Cloud White works wonderfully with Pale Oak


Ivory White is the most creamy of the three and maybe even my favourite pairing.

Fabulous Colour Combinations

Healing Aloe, so soothing!


Smoky Green is a slightly more intense colour & more blue than Healing Aloe.


Newburg Green, perhaps my most favourite combination with Pale Oak

The graphic below shows you all the colours together, plus Chelsea Gray thrown into the mix.  How gorgeous is this?!

Perfect Paint Palette!

  1. I used pale oak on all the walls of my living areas along with dove white on all the trim as well as a shiplap exposed cathedral ceiling. It is stunning. The floors are medium brown hardwood and our upholstered surfaces are blue-greens. Much like your suggestions, so thanks. I chose pale oak because my kitchen cabinets had a subtle violet undertone. I tried every greige and pale oak was clearly the best. Dove was best with the cabinets.

    • Nancy this is so great to hear, thank so much for sharing. I’m thrilled to hear that everything looks so stunning!

  2. Thank you for putting almost all of my favourite colours together! I can’t wait to do some testing… but have to move first!

    • Jill I am loving that combination too!! Let me know if you use them on a project, I’d love to see them together in real life -you know what I mean. LOL Cheers.
