Soapy Water by Para Paints

Still a designer favourite, warm white remains timeless and versatile.

Soapy Water is a nice option with enough tint to avoid looking like primer. This calming hue was chosen as the ideal white to complement warm neutrals throughout an entire home. Use it to bring more light into small spaces, such as dark hallways or poorly-lit stairwells.
