Welcome to the Indigo Tones blog: Living in Color!
I am so excited about the new Indigo Tones blog. For years, colleagues and clients have been asking me to share what I know about color harmony.
My fascination with living in color started with a fascination with incredible peacock who defies all survival of the fittest theories. Peacocks confidently walk the earth showing their beautiful colors and embracing their uniqueness in the natural world. There is a luminosity to their plumes. I experience the same luminosity when I see people wearing their colors, being themselves and finding joy in life. When I designed the unique Indigo Tones fiber personal color swatch books, I was inspired by the shape and brilliance of the peacock's plume. The Indigo Tones Personal Color Plumes are an invaluable tool in tapping into our own luminosity.
As my business has evolved, so has my personal color analysis. I have learned as much from the mistakes I made as I have from the home runs. The more I focused on COLOR HARMONY, the more I saw that there is a multi-dimensional aspect to getting colors just right. It is not as simple as handing someone a swatch book of colors and telling them to hit the mall. It takes time to figure out the individual, their needs, and how they fit into the world of color. In this blog, I plan to share with you the concepts in creating personal color harmony, answer your questions about fitting into the world of color, and how to make things work for you.
I have met some amazing people who are embracing life, living authentically and joyfully. In the series Colorful Lives, I will introduce you them and they will share their stories of embracing life in color!
I hope you will find the blog interesting, inspiring and entertaining!

It is my pleasure to introduce Dark Winter, Meg Casebolt, founder of Love At First Search, an agency that guides small online business owners, especially female entrepreneurs in creating search friendly websites and strategic content. She helps her clients to optimize how they show up in search results in Google, Youtube, etc - Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
I learned to start by identifying the core essence of my business, to choose visuals and words that would be send out a clear message in an appealing way and how use all the tools to help viewers see me clearly and navigate around my site effortlessly. It is so similar to how I help my clients understand their coloring and style with special tools to authentically maximize a natural look in the simplest, most streamlined way.

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!
