House of Colour
In addition to my artwork, I am also a color and style consultant with House of Colour, a UK based company. My goal is to help you create a wardrobe that works for you and your lifestyle while making you feel your most beautiful and authentic. Even if you already have fab style, finding the right language to express it (as well as honing the tools to attain it!) will simplify and maximize the way you shop and dress.
I suggest starting with two consultations: Color and Style. They can be done one at a time, or back-to-back, and either one-on- one or in a small group.
For the color session, I use precision-dyed drapes to determine whether your skin tone is warm or cool, and then we subsequently find the specific palette of your “wow” colors which best harmonize with your unique undertones. They provide an instantaneous, almost magical transformation, making your features more defined, your eyes brighter, and your skin glow. And while finding a rainbow of shades is lots of fun, we also find your best neutrals, since they make up the bulk of our closets. We discuss the best metals for your season as well as your best hair color options if you color your hair. I apply House of Colour makeup in your palette so you can see how the right colors really bring out your inherent beauty. I keep it light (I’ll teach you a 90 second makeup process) so if you’re not a big makeup wearer-it shouldn’t feel uncomfortable, and I do have makeup available for purchase. You will leave with a color wallet and instructions on how to use it, as well as a color booklet with additional info which includes how to find great color combinations and what your primary words are which capture your season and make shopping easier. The color session typically takes about 2-2 1/2 hours.
The perfect complement to a Color analysis is a Style class. During your session we will discover your Clothing Personality which is a concept we use to illustrate how your body architecture, your personality, and your lifestyle can impact the clothing choices that work best for you. After making this determination, we can then find the styles, shapes, textures, and patterns for your clothing as well as the type and scale of accessories that will elevate your look. The session also includes guidance on culling and curating your wardrobe, in addition to tips for making shopping enjoyable and productive. While I’m not able to accurately determine your season without you sitting in my chair and seeing how the colored drapes impact your skin tone, I can do Style consultations online. Style sessions are usually broken up into 2 Zoom calls, taking about 3 1/2-5 hours total or can be done in one session in my studio. They can be one-on-one or a in group with your friends and/or family. In addition, I will be offering 3-4 classes a month for up to 5 people. If you’d like to join to take advantage of the reduced group rate but don’t want to have to put a group together yourself, this is a great option.
An in-person color consultation (from my studio in Marina del Rey/Mar Vista area) is $295 or $265 each if you come with a friend. Style sessions cost $350 one-on-one or $275 per person if you come with multiple people (online or in-person). I also offer an all-day style and color class for $650.
Knowing your perfect palette and your clothing personality is incredibly freeing and exhilarating. Shopping is quicker and easier, you’ll waste less time and money, and you’ll understand why some garments in your wardrobe have never felt quite right and why others reliably bring you confidence and joy. One of my favorite aspects of my work is encouraging sustainability for my clients through conscious fashion choices. Once you know what clothing best suits you, you can make better, smarter choices and have items that will last you years rather than months.
I also offer online shopping sessions, in person shopping and styling, closet clean outs (both virtual and in person), and other services.
