Indigo Tones Colorful Lives Blog Warm Autumn Donald Green

It was a treat for me to do a "surprise" color analysis for Donald Green for his 50th birthday several years ago. He was a good sport and went along for the ride and jumped enthusiastically into his Warm Autumn palette. Donald is a certified Podologist and runs a specialized European foot care center. I was amazed at his professionalism and attention to detail on my first visit. He and I share a similar exacting approach to our systems and methods and I appreciate the care he gives each and every client. 

In the years since his color analysis he has incorporated his colors into his business branding and lifestyle.  

After receiving a landmark birthday gift of a color analysis, I arrived at my appointment with enormous inquisitiveness.  I was met at the door by Kerry with her now, infamous question:  She asked, “You have NO idea why you are here, do you?”  I nodded sheepishly as I looked around the room.  I remember feeling dumbfounded as I saw makeup, accessories, and scarves of every imaginable color, not knowing what was to come.

As it turns out, meeting Kerry was a very positive and life altering 50th birthday gift experience and we have continued to keep in touch throughout these past years.

Since opening the foot care center in 2018, I took to the habit of wearing hospital scrubs --in my Warm Autumn colors, of course!  I receive comments very often about how well I look, or have I lost weight?, or did I go on vacation?, etc.---It’s all about the colors you wear, who knew?!  I have notice ways that I have bridged a gap between the colors that I wear, and the colors in my office and home. In fact, many clients just simply ask me to pick out their nail polish color choice with complete trust.

I find many of the Warm Autumn colors in my office and the logo for my business.  I think that Kerry was pleased when she came to the office and saw the colors in the pallet that dressed the entire office space.  Prior to a little coaching from her, I could not even think about arranging furniture properly let alone picking out matching colors.  A little education goes a long long way!

I used to despise shopping for new clothes, and often wondered why certain articles that I purchased in the past would hang in the closet and never be worn.  Now I buy with confidence!  My favorite thing is the color swatches!  I never leave home without them. In fact, I was introduced to two new colors that I did not even have in my wardrobe , turquoise (now my favorite) and coral!  Who knew that wearing my new colors would be so revealing and help me set a style of my own, and allow me to look my best.
