Here ya go moonshadow - I can only help with the off-whites but maybe this will get things started.

This is Benjamin Moore Palace White with incandescent lighting

Palace White again but with only indirect daylight

I have Ben Moore French White in my master bath but for some reason can't find any pics - will try and get some taken tomorrow

RE: Whites and Off-whites

Oh thanks deb! I thought my other post fell flat on its face, lol. What direction does your dining room face, out of curiosity?

RE: Whites and Off-whites

The dining room has one west and one north (the one with the clock) facing window - the front door also has a west window and that's the light you see coming in through the doorway. I REALLY like the color - it's light but not wussy and warm without making you think of a specific color. I worried about it working with yellow because all my transition areas (entry & halls) are a pale yellow but I think it works fine. I plan to paint my office/guest room the same thing unless it gets some weird undertone from the south facing windows.

RE: Whites and Off-whites

Another shot from my MLS portfolio:-) Sherwin Williams Eggwhite Semigloss. The color is pretty accurate, it's a pretty clean yellow-white. I liked it a lot, would have loved it with less sheen (richer color) but we live the semigloss lifestyle! Trim is Valspar Swiss Coffee/Sawyer White.
