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!

The last several months have been an absolute joy working with Warm Autumn Erin Sirianni to get her closet completely refreshed and full of items that she loves. She was very focused and determined to only have things that worked and the effort she made was worth it! She completely changed her hair, she passed along hundreds of items of clothing (see where some of them landed!), purged a huge percentage of her closet and shopped everywhere from the Indigo Tones resale shop to Panache Consignment to Goodwill to stores at the mall.
Erin is a Professional Development and Life Coach who gravitated to more structured, classic clothing as it felt the most professional but as we worked with her body shape and her personality we discovered she really likes a bit more drama and softer lines suit her shape.

I was excited to see Deb Willsea again on my recent travels to Cape Cod, MA. We met years ago when I did a her color analysis in Rochester, NY. Deb's petite frame and creative personality style create unique challenges in finding sizes that fit correctly while seeking unusual, creative clothing in the earthy soft autumn palette.
It was a joy to feel the harmony she had created in her home on Cape Cod using Soft Autumn colors and natural materials as we weeded out items in her closet that don't work during a recent closet "rehab". Read more about how she has incorporated the concepts of balancing a natural environment for learning in developing the Cape Cod Toy Library Inc based on the Reggio Emilia philosophy in this month's colorful lives blog.
The Reggio Emilia philosophy aligns perfectly with the concepts of personal color harmony - environments that are aesthetically attractive will help foster children’s learning as well as provide a setting that is welcoming and relaxing for adults.

It has been a whirlwind since Soft Summer Kara came to a class I taught on the science involved in Personal Color Analysis this past spring. She immediately booked a color consultation and hit the ground running in a concerted effort to create a professional wardrobe in spite of unique challenges.
Kara is the Director of Security Strategic Initiatives for a large financial institution and needs to dress in a more neutral, reserved and traditional way.
Much of the more structured, detailed classic attire in her industry is too overwhelming for her petite frame and preferred natural style. Read more about how she was able to stay within a budget but was willing to invest in the initial color analysis consultation, a capsule wardrobe package and a personal shopping trip with me.
