Alabaster's Undertone

Alabaster gives white a whole other meaning, it removes the misconception that white is sickly, and suited only for sanitized hospital rooms. Its gray and beige undertones makes it very versatile, while still being more fun than other SW shades of white. 

The creamy color leans more towards white, which can remind you of whipped foam on a freshly-brewed coffee – sweet, neutral, and pleasing to the eyes. White can rarely be described as warm, due to its cool toned vibrancy. 

However, Sherwin Williams Alabaster boasts of a Light Reflectance Value of 82 giving more depth to its color, while the creamy base is due to some yellow mixed in the formula. 

A touch of neutral also contributes to the right amount of warmness that overall gives a soft, bouncy feel to this certain touch of white. Neither stark nor overly warm, Jordan really knows that Alabaster is an understated but a very alluring hue of white.

Stripe Your Way In with Sherwin Williams Alabaster

Alabaster can shine and dominate any room, but mixing and matching it up with a variety of patterns opens up a wonderland of possibilities. Big, bold stripes that emit Cheshire cat vibes without the craziness can make any room feel wider and larger. 

A daring contrast against this neutral hue is perfect for creating streaks, may it be on one side of the wall to call on your inner tigress, or manifest some mental kicks to jumpstart your day. 

However be mindful of utilizing too many wide stripes, it can be overpowering and can make the room feel boxy. Thin stripes may also blend in the room, and may even bring more harm than good. Always go and find the balance, just like how Alabaster finds the perfect mix of fun and formal in one.

White Luster with a Splash of Color

The subtlety of white without taking the sickly feel was perfectly captured by Sherwin Williams Alabaster, making it perfect for that girly bedroom some women dream to have. Some pinks, oranges, purples, and even that mint green most would kill to incorporate in their rooms would harmonize will with SW 7008 as the wall color. 

Like a flower garden emitting a very bright and lovely atmosphere, the room with Alabaster as a backdrop is sure to make the room energetic but not chaotic. The harmony and balance of the splashes of color with Alabaster ensure that the room is unique with flairs of texture.

"Mike was great to work with. He explained all that needed to be done to install a quality roof that would last. Had other quotes but other contractors were not as informative and did not include everything that was needed. Mike’s crew was courteous, did an excellent job and completed the work in a timely fashion. If you are not familiar with working with insurance adjusters be sure Mike meets with them when you set up a meeting. This was helpful in my case and made the claims process run smoothly. I am very pleased 😀 with his service and recommend him to my neighbors of which two have used him across from my home."
