Sherwin Williams Pure White is a stunning, warm-hued white with just a touch of gray undertone. If you’ve been evaluating shades of white for your home, you know that not all white paints are the same. Today on the blog, I’m sharing all about Sherwin Williams Pure White SW7005, where we used it in our home, and what I think about this shade.
A Well Loved Color!
When I was doing some research on this shade, I came across all of the Sherwin-Williams collections this particular color is a part of:
- Color Collections: Trendsetter
- Timeless Whites
- Rejuvenation – Fall/Winter 2021
- Pottery Barn / Pottery Barn Kids / Pottery Barn Teen
- Top 50 Colors

I don’t necessarily choose a color based on popularity, but it’s nice to see that so many people have enjoyed Sherwin Williams Pure White over time and that it holds up in person! Seeing the color online can be really helpful in narrowing down the perfect shade.
What I Love About Sherwin Williams Pure White
Pure white is lovely for those wanting white walls without any starkness. It definitely pulls warm with a grey undertone that is so subtle. Against other whites, it will look more grey, almost like an oat color. However, when compared to any other color besides white, it looks it looks a brighter, full white!
Another white I’ve used throughout my home is Behr Frost which is a cooler white. Isn’t so crazy how different they are?!
