Living with white......no matter your personal style, white can work beautifully in any home. It's classic, timeless and so easily adaptable. And far from being boring and clinical, white can be combined with an array of other colors to create many environments....from coastal cool to country warm. Whites create comfort and security and sophistication.
Clean bright white did not exist until the invention of titanium dioxide. Before that, ingredients such as lime and lead pigment had been used and combined to create muddy off-whites. Andrea Palladio, creator of country villas in the late 1500's, used a palette of off-whites and grays, (my favorites), known as Palladian whites. Once zinc oxide and titanium dioxide came along, a whole spectrum of whites were adopted by artists, designers, and architects. Whites became synonymous with style, modernism and simplicity.
Actually white is not simply white. What we see as white is a combination of all the visible colors of the spectrum in equal proportions, according to Issac Newton. And it also has the unique property of taking on different hues, depending on the colors and light source around it.
