    Donald Kaufman ...always

    • South Bank

      Kaufman and his wife and partner, Taffy Dahl, are never satisfied unless a room is ''spectrally complete'' - meaning that it has all the colors in the spectrum. You can have an all-white room, but you should have a red white, a yellow white and a blue white - or an orange white, a green white and a violet white. That way, the room will echo the balance you always find in nature. Donald Kaufman

      Donald Kaufman: To Everyone Who Agonizes Over Color Don’t be distracted by mass-market jargon that is masquerading as expert advice The world of painting and decorating is not immune from the allure of “quick fixes” and advertising. An ad may claim that a particular white will impart the feeling of the Caribbean sky, but an actual room painted with that color will never be the same as a two-dimensional picture. Mass-market colors are ok if your sights are not set too high. samples of samples

    DONALD KAUFMAN COLOR COLLECTION DKC-5: "You know what my color is — white. And it's always Donald Kaufman #5. I think there's every color in that white. It catches light and shadow and does a little magic thing around the edges of paneling. My whole apartment is #5, from top to bottom, front to back. It's like Chanel No. 5. You always feel good in it." -Mariette Himes Gomez

    Benjamin Moore Evening Sky 833 "Deep, dark inky blue that almost looks black in the shade..."

    "Paint everything one color — this elegant gray. It's like a frothy latte. Not too dark, not too cold…just right. It will add a little architectural gravitas to even the saddest cabinetry. And if it feels too restrained, bring in lemony yellow, blue, and white." —Benjamin Dhong Benjamin Moore Regal Classic Premium Hazy Skies OC-48 -

    Absolute Best Paint Color I ever worked with! I put up and worked with probably over a hundred different paint color samples for clients. This one was a slam dunk every time. I'd mix at half strength sometimes too. benjamin moore - quiet moments 1563 (so soothing!)

    "It's the color of afternoon light — that end-of-the-day moment when it feels warm and mellow and everything has a glow. I'm thinking some beautiful house on the Mediterranean, and we're sitting outside and eating figs with a bottle of white wine." -Sara Bengur Pictured, Donald Kaufman Color Collection's DKC-30

    Paint Color:

    "Green is in the middle of the spectrum, so in a sense it incorporates both ends and embraces all the realms of light that people need for nourishment. It evokes both warmth and coolness. Since it's ubiquitous in nature, it takes us back to nature. Try it in a guest room or a garden room, accented with white." —Donald Kaufman. DKC-63 by Donald Kaufman Color.
