I always prefer to use white or shades of white in all my projects as with a neutral backdrop, you can play around in colours with furnishing and accessories. By keeping 2/3 sets of curtains/ loose sofa covers and matching accessories, one can totally change the tone of the room as per your mood and choice. In winter one can use warm colours in furnishing while at the onset of summer one can go for pastels giving the room totally different complexion. It is an easy makeover without spending a lot of money and does away with the same jaded look for years.

which white is best for a bookcase? I've also heard that latex paint is bad to use on furniture.

Any suggestions for a white to use on walls with red oak floors and lots of natural light? I plan to use Benjamin Moore White Dove and Sage Wisdom on the kitchen cabinets and island. I would like the wall colors to be the same throughout the home.
