Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace Review & Inspiration
What We Love About Chantilly Lace OC-65
Chantilly Lace, true to its name, is as delicate as lace and part of the Off White Color Collection. It’s a favorite among interior designers and renowned for being one of the brightest, cleanest whites in the Benjamin Moore collection. Chantilly Lace is a very neutral white, with a crisp look that lacks any real undertones. It's sure to brighten any room in the home.
Chantilly Lace: Neutral White Has Almost No Undertones
Chantilly Lace is one of the closest options you’ll find to a true, pure white. In the Benjamin Moore collection Chantilly Lace OC-65 is rivaled only by Super White OC-152. Since it has almost no undertones, Chantilly Lace is extremely versatile and neutral. In open plan homes and contemporary spaces, it’s a reliable bright white that ties everything together. Use it on traditional architecture for a crisp, up-to-date look; it’s a great choice for trim and ceilings too. Even though Chantilly Lace has hardly any warm or cool undertones, late afternoon sunlight that has a yellow cast can make it look slightly warm. This subtle undertone is what makes it an excellent choice for the home, since it’s unlikely to turn gray on a dark, cloudy day.
Chantilly Lace shines in rooms with plenty of natural light; use it in rooms with window walls take advantage of its inherent brightness and reliable neutral tone. Thanks to its ability to maintain a warm undertone, Chantilly Lace still appears white in the gray light of cool climates. This is why it’s so popular with interior designers; it’s a true white that isn’t easily influenced by lighting conditions or adjoining colors. For walls, ceilings, or trim, Chantilly Lace is a safe choice to pair with almost any color.

Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore is ideal for almost any space, but particularly rooms that feature a lot of natural light.

It can be used to help other colors in the room pop, so feel free to experiment and pair this versatile color with almost anything!
