Cloud White aka CC-40 or OC-130 and for those who have been a fan for a LONG time, you'll remember it as simply 967. I know, I know. We're all sick and tired of hearing about Benjamin Moore's beloved Cloud White. Or are you? It has had a cult-like following over the last couple of decades by both designers and homeowners. It's an off white that doesn't look too stark or too creamy so it works really well with lots of different colours.
Gray is the hottest colour going right now and I haven't been to a consultation in a while where I didn't specify gray for some part of the house. Cloud White can look too yellow against a gray so I've been using less and less of it recently.
This is Cloud White paired with Gray Owl OC-52. Cloud White looks yellow against this pale gray.
I prefer the crispness of Chantilly Lace OC-65 against Gray Owl.
Chantilly Lace is crisp and clean and bright. It looks fresh against gray so it's starting to become one of my very favourite go-to colours for trim and cabinets.
I mean really, can this be more perfect...
Don't worry Cloud White. I'll never abandon you completely but I'm taking a short break from you. See you again sometime soon.
