Sherwin Williams kitchen cabinet paint color First Star in farmhouse kitchen

Here at Life on Summerhill, we recently painted our stained cabinets. The paint color we chose was Sherwin Williams First Star.

When I started looking for a paint color I knew I wanted a white color but I also had white countertops, white subway tile backsplash and white appliance. Needless to say I already had a lot of white going on.

To combate all the white I first thought I would use repose gray but when the color came in it was to dark to call it white cabinets. So I worked with Sherwin Williams to cut the color until I got it just like I wanted it. But when I pulled my SW paint chips out I discovered that Sherwin Williams already had a white-gray called First Star.

Well, the story gets even more interesting because when I started doing my research for the most popular paint color of 2021 guess who showed up on the list. That's right–First Star.

First star is a cool white with almost equal amounts of red and green so it doesn't read warm or cool. As you can tell from the photo it is the lightest tone on the value scale but not quite white. It offers a tiny bit of contrast with white which worked nicely in this kitchen which already had lots of white.

Other paint colors in our kitchen are in paint colors at Life on Summerhill.
