Shades of White

White Pebble Stone

White is often perceived as the most virtuous of colors. It’s uncontaminated, clean and pristine. In its truest form, white is devoid of color – that’s what makes it “pure”!

However, like other colors, the term “white” is used for a whole lot of shades. Take the example of the ubiquitous LED bulbs that have taken over the world in the past few years. They come in predominantly three shades of white – cool, natural and warm – which are markedly different. This disparity also leads to difference in their application – some may enjoy reading under a cool white light while others would prefer warm white for their night lamps.

Yes, white has shades… and they are beautiful

The purest incarnation of white in the RGB color space is when red, blue and green lights are at their fullest which translates to (255, 255, 255) values or hexadecimal code of #FFFFFF. Any shade of white that can be produced in this color model can only come about by decreasing the amount of the three primary colors (lights).
