Can you simply move an adjective before a noun and then use 'de'? Or does using 'de' before the adjective only occur when using an adjective that actually goes before the noun?
i.e. Can we say "the white houses" either way? des maisons blanches or de blanches maisons
Just to add to Chris answer -
The white houses ( your example ) = Les maisons blanches
White houses = Des maisons blanches
I hope this helps!
No, you can't. Placement of the adjective is pretty rigid in French. Most adjectives follow the noun, some precede it and a few can go either place.
