When you wear colors that harmonize with your natural skin tone, hair color, and eyes the results are life changing. At Indigo Tones, the color analysis is personal, the products are natural and the experience is unforgettable!
I feel as though I have been given permission to open up and be free with the colors I love! It's been a freeing experience.
I don't think the compliments have stopped - almost EVERY day someone stops me! It’s GREAT!
I have gotten so many complements, but mostly I feel like ME when I look in the mirror. It’s been so much fun walking into stores and honing in on the styles and colors that are right for me.
After just two days of "wearing my colors," I cannot believe the amount of compliments I am getting. This is amazing! I am so thankful and feel so confident and vibrant in my colors. :) I am so happy that I am a warm spring. It is definitely me
I have received COUNTLESS complements on my makeup and overall look, and I just feel like I'm on top of the world!
I spent most of my adult life searching for the perfect lip color, and now I have a whole selection of perfect colors to wear every day. I am so glad I met you and did the color analysis. It was life changing.
I’ve never worn less makeup since getting my colors done.
Everything in my closet works together, no more clothes that just sit there unused because they don't work. The money I save is great and my confidence in what I purchase is empowering and saves so much time. I have never found any other company that really does all you do. Thank you again for everything.
I now own many (many!) fewer items of clothing than I used to, but I love each and every piece, and they work together in so many different combinations!
You have changed my life!!! I feel so much better and it’s so much easier getting ready. It really was the best investment I have ever made!
We had a blast and will be changing our wardrobes accordingly. The whole experience is unique, very informational, and great fun to do with family or a few friends. You are very good at what you do.
Fellow travelers ask how such a variety of clothes can emerge from such small bags. I pity those burdened by their large suitcases. I had been one of them – especially when they mostly contain variations of black, white, and beige!
It’s a treat to introduce you to this month's colorful lives feature, Soft Autumn Tim Stich who is also my son!! Tim’s experience with shopping for clothing and wearing color is unique as I become a color analyst when he was quite young. When he and his sister Clare were little, I tried dressing them in bright colors with strong patterns as was the style then.....but even before learning about personal color harmony, I started to sense that the clothes overwhelmed them and began dressing them in softer colors and solids. I was even shocked the other day to discover when I pulled out his school photos that every single photo (even before I learned of his color palette) was taken in a Soft Autumn color. You can see how his life has evolved wearing the soft, earthy colors that suit his ruddy hair, freckles and soft blue/green eyes.
Over the years, he has mostly been very eager to wear what suits him and looked to me to help him distinguish soft autumn colors from the two seasons nearby - warm autumn and soft summer. We enjoy shopping together, especially now that he lives in Manhattan and the shopping is abundant. It can be a challenge to find his colors in sizes and style that fit but when its perfect, it feels great and he knows it. Read on to learn more about what it’s like to be a guy whose mom is a color consultant!
I am so excited to introduce you the “entertainingly irreverent” (Associated Press) Soft Summer, Valerie Peterson. Valerie is an extraordinary storyteller in a variety of media including scriptwriting, screenplays, fiction, non-fiction and book publishing/consulting. I analyzed her colors years ago in Rhode Island at a girls weekend hosted by a mutual friend (color analysis and girls weekends make a great combo!). In the years since, Valerie has embraced her Soft Summer colors in spite of living and working in New York City where black is a standard and practical.
It was a thrill when her publisher chose a photo of my family for her wonderfully spirited book, Peterson’s Happy Hour. On page 46, you can find me with my family - brothers, Mike and Tim and my parents Marcia and J. Michael Jones circa 1970. The book features many more photographic gems and recipes for a fabulous social gathering!
In this month’s colorful lives blog, Valerie shares her journey with her color palette. As with all her writing projects, she is humorous, colorful and entertaining! She has kept in great condition and still uses the Sci Art swatch book that I provided back in those days!! Be sure to check out her large body of work on valeriepeterson.net and read more in the blog:
While doing color analysis in Boston in June, I had the pleasure of meeting Danielle Burton and giving her a 12-Season Color Analysis. Danielle had recently experienced a 4-Season Color Analysis with a House of Colour consultant and was told she was a Winter. I was skeptical that she was any type of Winter (in the 12 season system, there are actually 3 Winters - Dark Winter, Cool Winter and Bright Winter). Her light eyes, natural lighter and soft brownish hair and skin tone were much more consistent with my clients who fall into the lighter seasons, especially Summer.
Since her hair had been highlighted, we covered it with a neutral gray cap to do the testing portion of the analysis, ensuring that the lighter color did not sway the results of the analysis. It was clear from the beginning that Danielle was responding more harmoniously to the cool tones even some of the lighter cool winter drapes which was consistent with her 4 season color analysis.
But, while she contrasted with any drapes that were dark and bright, she was softened and balanced by the lighter cool tones, particularly Summer. The dark colors brought out shadows under her eyes and the brighter colors overwhelmed her and brought attention to themselves. In the end, she looked lovely and perfectly balanced and harmonious in the Cool Summer colors!
"While I had a great experience at House of Colour, I do think they are missing out on a ton of research and color science by not including the 12 seasons and variants. The added layer of cool vs bright vs dark was a huge difference for me and really solidified which category I best fit”.
