Do you understand your Colors?

OK you've got a fabulous color swatch. You know all about Neutrals and how you should be accenting them with Brighter colors, but it's really difficult to put it into practice. 

As well as opening up a wonderful new world of color - having a color palette to adhere to can sound as though it's very LIMITING!

And I want to show you that it's not!

Color is to make you look good and feel good; to use and to enjoy. I'm going to start breaking the color palettes down so that you can find your way around.

I'll show you how to spot the shades that are best for you, how to extend your range of colors, how to experiment and still ensure that you have all the color you need to look and feel your best.

Understand a little - enjoy your colors a whole lot more...

Even with a color swatch it can still be difficult to understand your colors if it's never been explained to you properly.

I've broken the Color Families down further so you can see how color works for you.

Neutrals for Spring coloring

It's easy to get excited about a Color Swatch and, certainly, the Spring shades are some of the most glorious shades around. But until you clarify your basic (almost boring) neutral shades, it's impossible to begin any kind of co-ordination.

Who needs 50 Shades of Grey...?

Grey is a very versatile and useful neutral and perfect for every wardrobe but some shades will suit you better than others. Grey can be a bit of a chameleon and changes in different lights so choose the shade that flatters your personal coloring and harmonizes with the brighter and lighter shades from your wardrobe.
