In this light-flooded home in Mill Valley, designed by local architect Ken Linsteadt, a trio of different shades of Benjamin Moore plays off one another, emphasizing the subtle architectural detailing. Linsteadt and homeowner Sarah Brinkman chose three contrasting but complementary whites to work with: Cotton Balls, White Chocolate, and Overcast. Photography by John Merkl.
