the differences between white and off-white
Who can tell me the differences?
So is the expression as "light yellow" and "yellowish".
Off-white is a light beige- it is not a pure white.
Light yellow is a gentle colour, and yelowish implies it is not pure yellow, but close.
Re: the differences between white and off-white
According to color experts, whites can tend toward blue, gray, brown or yellow. Any of these deviations can produce an off-white, and they would all be slightly different.
