The past year I had the fortune to get to know an amazing couple who uniquely embraced growth through color and brought much inspiration to me personally and professionally. They worked as a team with me to modify their wardrobes, redo their closet and bring all they have learned during their color consultation into other aspects of their lives.
In October, I introduced you to Warm Autumn, Erin Sirianni and now it is my pleasure for you to meet her Cool Winter husband, Danny. While Danny's coloring is dark and cool, his personality is warm and open. As a Realtor and business owner of Sirianni Realty, he understands that real estate decisions are made visually and viscerally. He saw immediately the value in wearing flattering and harmonious colors and promptly incorporated it into his approach to his business.
Read more about his journey in this month's colorful lives blog.
What prompted you to have a color analysis?
My Warm Autumn wife before she knew she was a Warm Autumn had the idea. One of the best questions I have ever heard was when we first met and Erin asked me if I was willing to grow? No one has ever asked me that and it intrigued me. So to answer your question we both decided to find out our color that best suits us so we can continue growing on our beautiful journey.
How has it changed your life?
The color analysis has simplified my life by simplifying my clothes shopping. It has made it so easy to select certain clothes that fall within my colors. This not only saves me time but also money. Have you ever bought something that wasn't quite right? We all have and it just sits in the closet and you always grab the other item that best suits you. Now, can you imagine all your clothes being the one that suits your best? Wow, it's incredible.
In what ways has it changed the way you approach your business?
I have now incorporated color analysis and Kerry into my business. Kerry is now a teammate of Sirianni Realty where I have all existing and new realtors and brokers visit with Kerry. I give this gift as a benefit of working at our brokerage. If you can show up looking your best why wouldn't you? I believe it's very important to put your client first and by doing this you cannot be thinking about yourself even down to the point of what you are wearing and how you think you look. Our concentration needs to be focused on the best interest of our client.
What has been the biggest challenge?
The biggest challenge is perfecting the exact colors that are yours when buying clothes. Believe it or not there are a lot of black clothes that have many different shades and tones. (see the different black shoes below - the darker, saturated black works better with everything in my closet). Not all of these tones and shades are mine so figuring out which ones are the most challenging. My colors are usually found most the year besides my actual season of cool winter, however some other colors are more difficult to find and are only available during your color season so this can be difficult also.
Any interesting things happen while you were wearing your colors?
The most interesting thing that has happened to me when I'm fully embracing my correct colors is I get a large number of compliments on what I'm wearing. It's pretty funny because it happens almost every time without fail.
What was the biggest surprise?
My biggest surprise is I was pretty close to what my color analysis determined I was. This helped me not purging everything and allowed me to get rid of some items and just add to my current wardrobe.
Tell me about your favorite color in your palette.
My favorite color has always been black so when Kerry did the color analysis and black was one of my colors and one of my dominant colors I couldn't be happier.
Tell me about your closet.
My closet now is complete with all my correct colors based on Kerry's analysis. Erin and I also decided to remodel our closet to give us a better view and more space to continue our color analysis journey. It's never been easier to get dressed in the morning because no matter what clothes I grab they all are the right ones. Kerry also came to our house to help us get rid of any colors that didn't fall into our analysis which was a huge help.
Besides the great color analysis we have also gained a great friend in Kerry. She is a true professional who has passion in what she does. You cannot beat love and passion and this is what Kerry brings to the table.
How fun it was one evening last autumn to run into Danny and Erin and Cool Summer, Anne Stout! Thank you Danny and Erin and Anne for being enthusiastic clients, inspiring professionals and now dear friends!

I observed grace under pressure in a high pitched environment when I met this month’s Bright Winter feature: Cindy Christi at the United States National Pageant several years ago. As founder of Cindy Christi TV, Cindy helps CEO’s, Speakers, Best Selling Authors, On-Air Personalities and Pageant Contestants fall in love with their brand voice, so they can step into the spotlight and lead their legacy with confidence, clarity and ease.
Our roles at the pageant were aligned in helping the contestants andNational Titleholders shine on stage and throughout their reign. Cindy’s professionalism and ease in front of the camera and steadying presence onstage set the tone for contestants and the pageant as a whole.
It was clear right away thatshe was a Bright Winter when I started draping her. Wow! She truly lights up the room in the right pops of color.
Learn more about Cindy’s color-filled journey and how applying her perfect shades elevates her brand, business and homelife in this month’s Colorful Lives blog.

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!
