Atrium White by Benjamin Moore

By: Stevie Miller |

Some people see life differently. Where most of us find frustration, they’re counting their blessings. While we’re sweating the small stuff, they’re stopping to smell the roses.

If you’re someone who sees life through rose colored glasses–or if you just wish you could be–then I’ve got the perfect white paint for you.

Today we’re going to look at a truly unique white paint color. Its brightness qualifies it as a true white, but its unique undertones push it into the off-white family. When I say unique, I mean I’ve literally never reviewed another white paint like this one.

If, like Audrey Hepburn, you believe in pink, then you’re going to be over the moon about Atrium White!

What Color is Atrium White?

1 Atrium White Introduction

Atrium White is a bright white with a tint of rosy pink. While in many lighting situations, it will come across as a white, that dollop of pink puts Atrium White in the off-white family. 

LRV of 85.08

Atrium White has a light reflectance value, or LRV, of 85.08. 

Light reflectance value is a scale designed to measure how bright a color is, and ranges from absolute black at 0 to sheer white at 100. The higher the number, the lighter the color.

Off-white colors typically range from about 73 to 82, with numbers above 82 being true whites. Atrium White is bright enough to qualify as a true white, but its pink tint makes it an off-white.

What Undertones Does Atrium White Have?

Atrium White has pink undertones. This is a color where the undertones matter–you’re going to notice Atrium White’s pink. If you love pink, or are looking to match it in your home, Atrium White could be perfect for you.

Is Atrium White a Warm Color or a Cool Color?

Atrium White is a warm white paint color, thanks to its cheerful pink undertones. It’s a good choice for a warm white that doesn’t lean yellow.

Where Can You Use Atrium White?

Atrium White is great for spaces where you’re trying to deal with permanent fixtures that have pinks or reds in them. 

If you’re looking to make a space feel warmer but really want to stay away from yellow undertones, Atrium White is a fresh and interesting alternative. 

Once you’ve decided to take the plunge with those pink undertones, you can use Atrium White in any room of the home, as well as on the exterior. 

Consider Atrium White as your primary white for decor styles that call on a lot of white, such as modern farmhouse or cottage styles.

Smaller and darker spaces can benefit from the brightness of Atrium White, while that hint of pink will keep it from looking stark or uninviting.

Let’s watch Atrium White in action and find out how it looks in different spaces!

Coordinating Colors for Atrium White

Choosing a color palette for Atrium White is trickier than regular white paints. You have to stay aware of that rosy pink undertone that makes it act more like a color than a neutral.

Atrium White was part of the color trends lineup with Aegean Teal, which was Color of the Year for 2021. These two colors are a match made in heaven, and it can be hard to keep them away from each other!

Similarly, other blue colors will look lovely with Atrium White. You can also venture into some warm greens–Benjamin Moore recommends Tate Olive.

Keeping with the trend of treating Atrium White like a color–however faint of one it may be–consider colors that work well with pink. Grays are a fabulous choice; you can take the full range from soft gray up through charcoal grays and even solid black.

Chances are if you’re choosing Atrium White, it’s because you’ve already got some coordinating colors in mind that it would be a perfect match for. 

But in case you need some inspiration, here are some ideas to help you get started:
