Color name:White Dove
Brand:Benjamin Moore

Benjamin Moore White Dove is a soft, creamy, off-white paint color. When it comes to white paint colors, White Dove is rather neutral. It is not super warm or cool and it’s not a true white. White Dove OC-17 is also known as White Dove PM-19. What do those numbers even mean? They are there telling you the color collection. So, OC is the Off-White Collection and PM is The Premium Mix Collection. Benjamin Moore White Dove has an LRV of 85.38. That’s high up on the scale, and it’s to be expected because it’s a white paint color. If you forgot what LRV or Light Reflectance Value is, to sum it up it’s a measurement commonly used by design professionals that measures the amount of light reflected from a surface. LRVs range from 0-100, with 100 being pure white and 0 being absolute black. Basically, higher numbers reflect more light and lower numbers do the opposite, they absorb light.
