Wecome to the Colorful Lives Series

Since I started my personal color analysis business nearly two decades ago I have met hundreds of interesting and inspiring people.  Many of them have unique, specialized businesses like mine.  It has been fascinated seeing how their understanding of their own color harmony has shaped the way they approach their lives and businesses. 

I often get questions about what colors to use for branding when starting a new business or rebranding an existing one.  One of the first choices is what the logo colors of the first decisions to make is logo colors and it does not stop there.   Everything from the interior design colors to print advertising should reflect the unique business culture. And a sole practitioner or business owner is essentially “the brand” so the impression they make through color is critical.

Color is everywhere and we take for granted how color impacts us on a daily basis.  We know to stop at a red light. We know who to cheer for when our team makes a goal because of the team colors. We would be unsettled and possibly nauseous if the Target bullseye logo appeared yellow rather than red, as expected.  

Join me as I profile colorful clients and business owners who have been wearing their colors and utilizing them not only in their wardrobes but in the way they run their businesses.  These entrepreneurs come in all shapes, styles, colors and industries.  Understanding their colors has driven their business in sometimes unexpected ways.

I’m so excited to introduce you to some amazingly colorful entrepreneurs in the Colorful Lives series.

A warm autumn closet purge starts an incredible clothing exchange
The Incredible Colorful Clothing Swap!

October 26, 2022 1 min read

The past few months have been so rewarding helping clients purge their closets of items that may be their style but not in flattering colors. So many of us are ready for a simple, streamlined wardrobe where everything in it feels like a YES!

Some really motivated clients wanted to edit their closets and were happy for Indigo Tones to help them find a good home for some of their favored items.

As soon as the clothing exchange got started it was amazing how excited everyone was to purge and donate pieces that were not right for them. A big motivator was knowing that they would go to the right person who shared the same size style and was just as eager to find the items in their own colors and lovingly wear them!

Everyone in the clothing exchange had a blast and continues to enjoy curating their closet to be a unique expression of their coloring and personality.

Enjoy the pics of the exchanges!
