In design, white is often seen as the epitome of modernity, class, and sleekness. The crisp color - or lack thereof - evokes a sense of cleanliness and style that we often see splashed within high style magazines and homes. And if you've spent anytime at a paint store, we're sure you've realized there's quite a spectrum for such a non-color. There's everything from warm whites like eggshell and cottage white, to cooler whites like wedding veil and Japanese paper. And while we do associate the color white with expensive things, achieving the same look yourself can cost you a dime. So take a tour through these incredible white spaces and drool, get inspired, and find ways to incorporate that same look into your own home.
