Indigo Tones Blog Colorful Lives Lorraine Bohonos for June Light Summer at Highland Park Lilac Festival

I was so inspired when I met professional organizer, Light Summer Lorraine Bohonos. Lorraine immediately embraced her colors and revamped her entire wardrobe following her color analysis. It is not surprising given her passion for simple, streamlined living and the philosophies she promotes with the organizing business she founded, Home Free.

With an artist’s eye and true belief that your environment affects how you live, Lorraine works with each client to create the most useful, organized and beautiful space for them to thrive. She provides her clients many benefits through the work she does with them, but the most coveted are more time, more energy and less stress.

A few of my clients had worked with Kerry and raved about her! 

I am an artist and professional organizer so I love color and need order. In my personal and professional life, I strive to make all areas as efficient as possible and I realized that I was taking too long to get ready in the morning. I was really drawn to color analysis for the simple fact that once I was able to build my wardrobe and accessories from a specific color group, putting together outfits that look great and compliment my style would be quick and easy.

One of the bonuses in getting my colors done is I realized that I needed to wear less make-up when wearing the right colors. I used to wear a lot of red and black clothing and I was getting so washed out that I needed to compensate with heavy makeup. (my closet before)

It is small but efficient! I can see all I have for a current season and I really enjoy the cohesiveness of it all.

After my color analysis I shop way less. As someone who loves stuff but also easily gets overwhelmed, it helped me focus and it eliminated a lot of options that were not right for me. I also use this system in other areas of my life, for example any luggage or travel related items I buy must be in blue and purples hues, linens in neutral tones, and kitchen and serving dishes in white, blue or gray.  

As a true believer of less is more, I have shared with my clients the importance it has had in my life. I now wear all the clothing in my closet as before I was only wearing about 15% on a regular basis. Any system to help me speed up decision making and do it with confidence is worth its weight in gold. 

Working with Kerry has been such a great experience, not only has she helped me, she has also helped make my mom’s, sister’s and many of my client’s lives so much better!

Colorful Lives, Warm Autumn Erin Sirianni

The last several months have been an absolute joy working with Warm Autumn Erin Sirianni to get her closet completely refreshed and full of items that she loves. She was very focused and determined to only have things that worked and the effort she made was worth it! She completely changed her hair, she passed along hundreds of items of clothing (see where some of them landed!), purged a huge percentage of her closet and shopped everywhere from the Indigo Tones resale shop to Panache Consignment to Goodwill to stores at the mall. 

Erin is a Professional Development and Life Coach gravitating to more structured, classic clothing as it felt the most professional but as we worked with her body shape and her personality we discovered she really like a bit more drama and softer lines suit her shape. Read more and see all the transformations in this month's colorful lives blog!

I was excited to see Deb Willsea again on my recent travels to Cape Cod, MA. We met years ago when I did a her color analysis in Rochester, NY. Deb's petite frame and creative personality style create unique challenges in finding sizes that fit correctly while seeking unusual, creative clothing in the earthy soft autumn palette.

It was a joy to feel the harmony she had created in her home on Cape Cod using Soft Autumn colors and natural materials as we weeded out items in her closet that don't work during a recent closet "rehab". Read more about how she has incorporated the concepts of balancing a natural environment for learning in developing the Cape Cod Toy Library Inc based on the Reggio Emilia philosophy in this month's colorful lives blog.  

The Reggio Emilia philosophy aligns perfectly with the concepts of personal color harmony - environments that are aesthetically attractive will help foster children’s learning as well as provide a setting that is welcoming and relaxing for adults.

It has been a whirlwind since Soft Summer Kara came to a class I taught on the science involved in Personal Color Analysis this past spring. She immediately booked a color consultation and hit the ground running in a concerted effort to create a professional wardrobe in spite of unique challenges.

Kara is the Director of Security Strategic Initiatives for a large financial institution and needs to dress in a more neutral, reserved and traditional way.  

Much of the more structured, detailed classic attire in her industry is too overwhelming for her petite frame and preferred natural style. Read more about how she was able to stay within a budget but was willing to invest in the initial color analysis consultation, a capsule wardrobe package and a personal shopping trip with me.
