And here, the pink shifts ever so slightly to violet…an ephemeral off-white from Donald Kaufman Color



Martha Stewart


Martha Stewart can get away with this….I have yet to convince a client to go this pink in a living room

    The Donald Kaufman is brilliant esp. backing the navy sofa. But sorry, the Martha room is just plain creepy.

      The Martha room is a bit contrived…could never get a client to paint out woodwork in that color…I think the room works (if you have 5 houses to play with ; )
