The perfect white? Designer Mariette Himes Gomez swears by Donald Kaufman’s DKC-5 in House Beautiful, “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”.
