I am pleased to introduce you to Soft Autumn Peggy Morgans. Peggy made a set of gorgeous custom curtains for me decades ago and I still love them! Since then, she founded Parkway Window Works, an award winning custom sewing workroom exclusively serving interior designers and architects in the Rochester, NY and Finger Lakes region.  Peggy's attention to detail and craftsmanship is like no other and her work is in high demand. I love following Peggy on Instagram and seeing all the incredible design projects in every color and style.  

I enjoying sharing my knowledge of color harmony to her highly skilled seamstresses and designers in her colorful workroom.  Read more about Peggy's journey in wearing Soft Autumn colors.  

What prompted you to have a color analysis?

I arranged for Kerry to speak at one of our workroom association meetings with a  presentation on color analysis and her business Indigo Tones. The workroom association is made up of businesses that do custom sewing for the home (draperies and valances, pillows, cushions, bedding, etc.). Understanding color and choosing colors is a big part of what these business owners do.  The presentation was great and the whole concept intrigued me and prompted me to get my own color analysis.

How has it changed your life?  Now, I do not buy new clothes without consulting my color swatches. I carry it in my purse so I have it whenever I need it.  

In what ways has it changed the way you approach your business?  My business supports interior designers and color is such a large part of what they do. I want to present myself in the best light, looking my best, when dealing with my interior designer partners and also when representing them in their clients' homes.

What has been the biggest challenge?  The biggest challenge is buying clothes at the opposite time of year as your own personal season because it is more challenging to find items in my palette. As a Soft Autumn, spring and summer shopping can be challenging.  

Any interesting things happen while you were wearing your colors?  I ALWAYS look better. And a true indicator is that even when I have no make-up on, my soft autumn colors make me look better.

What was the biggest surprise?  I have slowly eliminated colors from my wardrobe, even though I personally like them.  When I reach for a favorite item of clothing in an "old" color item, I invariably swap it out for one of my new items in the soft Autumn palette. I also find that I gravitate towards my colors when decorating myself. The fabric displays in my studio are versions/variations from my own personal palette.

Tell me about your favorite color in your palette.  Hands down it is coral.
