Let me introduce you to one of my favorite white paint colors: Snowy Pine by Behr Paint. Snowy Pine is a cool white shade that we have used in two different homes for our trim and door paint color.
Behr Snowy Pine is a cool white shade with lime undertones. It’s super crisp and clean-looking, making it a great option for painting trim or the perfect shade to brighten a room.
White is a timeless option. It’s ideal for those who love neutral palettes or crave a blank slate to pair bold colors and patterns.
But, if you’ve taken a trip to the paint stores, it’s likely you are completely overwhelmed with all of the different shades of white.
While white is a universally neutral color, it doesn’t always play nice with other colors. When choosing a paint color, it’s important to consider the paint color’s undertones, a room’s light and direction, and your style.

Today, I’m sharing this amazing, beautifully clean white paint option with you – Behr Snowy Pine.
I love this color! We used this in our first fixer-upper as the main door and trim color. Since then, it’s become our tried and true shade of white.
It played so well with the different shades we incorporated into our home’s color scheme. We used this shade on the barn door that divided our master bedroom from the bathroom. We were thrilled that it played so well with the other shade of white we used on the walls.
We used this color for:
- All baseboards, trim and interior doors (learn how to paint a door here) in both 1st and 2nd fixer upper homes
- Modern barn door
- Vertical shiplap wall in guest bathroom
- Shiplap alcove in our 1st fixer upper
Snowy Pine paint color overview
Snowy Pine is what I would call a bright, clean color without the harshness some shades of white give off. No industrial vibes! Just clean, comfy shades of white.
Snowy Pine would work well in any room of your home. I was concerned about the contrast between this shade of white and our other moodier colors, but it worked perfectly with our modern boho decor.
This shade would suit any decor style perfectly and in any room, including bedrooms, bathrooms, and accent walls.

Is it a warm or cool white?
Behr Snowy Pine is a cool white with lime undertones.
Paint shades all look so similar in the hardware stores but then seem to completely change when you get them home. I recommend picking up a few paint samples to test before committing to a paint color.
Before you paint the room, add a few swatches to the walls and see how the color interacts with the other decor elements and colors in the room. Be sure to observe the room at different times of the day to get a sense of how it would look after you paint the room. Sunlight, lightbulb temperatures, and fabrics all play a big part in how a paint color appears.
Behr Snowy Pine undertones
The ways undertones reflect in paint colors have a lot to do with the other decor elements and lighting sources in the room.
Per Behr, Snowy Pine has lime undertones. The pops of lime were very evident when we used this color in the farmhouse bathroom because we feature light green decor on the bathroom floating shelves, but not at all when we used it as the barn door in our master bedroom.
Again, the reflections of the undertones are impacted by the other items in the room. Sometimes this can be a challenge so keep this in mind as you are planning your decor.
LRV of Behr Snowy Pine
Snowy Pine paint has an LRV of 86, which is super high!
Light reflectance value is the amount of light that is reflected off of the paint color surface. The lighter (or more white) and color the higher the LRV – meaning that pure white has an LRV of 100 and pure black has an LRV of 0.
This means that this color will appear bright and vibrant once it’s added to the room.
Trim color that goes with Behr Snowy Pine
Since this is such an easy-going paint color, you could pair this with any color trim or wall. We actually used it as our trim color throughout our current home.
It played so well with the deep shade of green in our bathroom as well as the other shade of white in the adjacent room.
Behr Snowy Pine is a bright, crisp shade of white that will give any room an open, clean feeling. Much like any shade of white, it plays well with just about any other shade.
Because it pairs with almost anything, you could use this shade as your main wall color, trim color, or accent color.
