      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

    Benjamin Moore Evening Sky 833 "This is a deep, dark inky blue that can look almost black in the shade, but it turns into a rich, deep blue in the sun. It would look just as great on a stone house in the mountains as it would on a faded, silvery-shingled Cape Cod at the beach." -ANDREW FLESHER
