Je me demande si l'on utilise la preposition 'du' dans le sort de phrase là-dessus:

Ma maison est blanche.

Ou est-ce que l'on dit, 'Ma maison est du blanc'?

    Benoît is correct, naturally, but I feel it's worth adding that if you were to qualify the color, you could write for instance:
    ma maison est d'un blanc légèrement bleuté
    my house is of a slightly bluish white.
