Extra White is one of Sherwin Williams’s brightest whites.
It gives a very clean look to a room but can certainly be enhanced by adding in other beautiful complementary colours, as you will see later in this post in the design rendering we created.

Extra White Colour Review
Undertone: true white
Whites can all look the same to many people until you look at various white paint colours side by side with others. Then you are blown away by just how different they all can be!
And that is why it’s not uncommon for homeowners to overthink choosing a white paint colour for any part of their design project.
High Reflective White SW 7036 and Greek Villa SW 7551
When I do Colour Consultations in a client’s home, I am always comparing colours so they too can easily see the differences between the paint colours.
Best Whites To Pair With Extra White

A third white that would work brilliantly as a trim or ceiling colour with Extra White is… Extra White itself.
Yes, if you are painting your walls white, you don’t have to add in another white paint option for trim, ceilings, or cabinetry.
For a beautiful seamless look, they can all be painted in the same white. No need to overthink it!

For reference, you can see all the whites together in the graphic above.
If whites confuse you, you are not alone. But I can help. 🙂
Fabulous Colour Combinations
Extra White with Smoky Salmon, Web Gray and Relentless Olive
Smoky Salmon SW 6331 by Sherwin Williams
Web Gray SW 7075 by Sherwin Williams
Relentless Olive SW 6425 by Sherwin Williams
The above palette was created using my Perfect Colour Palette for Extra White.
We used the wallpaper below to pull together this fabulous colour combination. I often find inspiration from either a fabric, area rug or wall art.
The below image is a room rendering demonstrating the different ways to combine this colour combination.
The walls and ceiling are shown in Extra White.
The drapery and pillows are Smoky Salmon.
The console is painted Web Gray, while the accent chair is seen with Relentless Olive. I love that name!
On a side note and to show you a completely different colour palette, the living room layout in a 3D rendering shown above was initially created for this Burlington client project.
See if you can spot the same living room, but now done in real life, as you scroll through that blog post.
