With nearly two decades of colorful experience in my repertoire, I'm absolutely thrilled to introduce you to the confidence and empowerment that House of Colour's Color and Style Analysis experience has in store for you.


Transformative. Life-changing. Empowering. Confidence-boosting. These may sound like big words for something as seemingly simple as "color," but the truth is quite the opposite!

Having spent over two decades as a graphic designer, I often playfully referred to myself as a professional kindergartner. My days were filled with coloring and drawing, and I absolutely loved it. I had the unique privilege of advising clients on complex subjects like color theory and psychology. However, when it came to my own personal use of color, I found myself at a loss.

It was a stark contrast—knowing so much about corporate color theory but struggling to confidently choose my own outfits in the morning. This disconnect led to a lack of confidence in my personal style.

Then, I discovered House of Colour. I underwent a color and style analysis less than a year before I opened my own franchise, and I've never looked back. My only regret is not finding House of Colour sooner. It would have saved me countless headaches and unnecessary expenses on clothing and style choices that simply didn't suit my season or personality. This experience gave me the freedom to be authentically me, embracing cool and bold colors with a style that's, well, a little unconventional!

When you invest in a personal color and/or style analysis, you empower yourself to make decisions that streamline your wardrobe and guide you in making smart investments in clothing, accessories, and makeup. You'll discover the colors and styles that allow you to truly shine, and I promise, you'll fall in love with your color season and clothing personality.

I offer individualized color analysis and comprehensive style consultations at my South Metro (Farmington) studio by appointment, as well as in various locations throughout the Lakeville, Farmington, and Burnsville areas. Your journey to style and confidence starts here.

Confidence begins with color!

Services

At House of Colour, I celebrate individuality and build confidence through personalized style. I believe in science, not trends, to find your best colors. Let's make an appointment and discover your authentic self. Join me!

Get dressed every day with purpose, ease, and JOY! A color analysis provides you with life-changing information. Using precision-dyed drapes and my extensive training I will prove to you the value of knowing your season; a palette of colors customized to your unique undertones. We apply this information to women, men, and children of all races, ethnicities, and genders. Your season will never change so this is information you can carry with you for a lifetime.

There are three parts to every color session. First is our world-class, scientific draping process that we have refined for excellence and accuracy over the past four decades. Next, I will provide advice on jewellery, watches, glasses, and when applicable: hair and makeup based on your season. Our makeup products will take the guesswork out of choosing colors that highlight your natural beauty. Finally, we'll dive further into your season and choose the best colors for your casual and professional life, discovering your list of WOW colors.

You will leave your appointment with a fan of your seasonal swatches and a brochure full of tips and reminders specific to you that you can reference later to make shopping and wearing your new colors a confident experience!

You should arrive at your analysis free of spray tans and makeup for optimal accuracy. No pictures will be taken without permission, nor are they shared on social media without your consent.

Discover the science behind personal style by unlocking the power of you. During a style analysis, I'll teach you how to combine who you are with how you dress so you can step out into the world looking fabulous as your authentic self. We consider your proportions, personality, and preferences to give you a style framework- we call this a “Clothing Personality. You will confidently know which fabrics, prints, patterns, and accessories, necklines, details, and silhouettes flatter your unique body architecture best. Because we factor your personality into this framework, our style analysis goes a step further to help you identify how you feel in different styles and pieces so your clothing not only looks great but also represents who you are.

For this appointment, you’ll bring 5–10 items from your closet that you LOVE and 5–10 that make you wonder why you don’t feel good when putting them on. We'll use this information to help you discover why you gravitated toward and loved certain pieces and what it is about the others that weren't working for you, so you save time and money in the future! At House of Colour, we believe clothing needs to be adjusted to you, not the other way around. It is our goal to make sure you feel your most confident as who you are and how you look right now.

You’ll leave with a book with detailed information specific to you that we'll fill out during the appointment and a Clothing Personality card with keywords that will help guide you when shopping. If you've already had a color analysis, this card can be inserted into your fan which will make shopping easy and efficient!

This appointment is designed to take the knowledge you gained in your color and/or style appointment and apply it to your own specific wardrobe. I will help you filter through the pieces you don't wear so you can donate them and provide joy to someone else and keep your own closet free from clutter so you can better mix and match pieces in your wardrobe to create more looks with fewer items.

Holly helped me identify my best colors to wear during my color analysis. After recovering from cancer and a 70 lb weight loss, I needed to go shopping. I had no idea where to start and what color clothes to buy. Holly helped me so much by giving me confidence…

Holly helped me identify my best colors to wear during my color analysis. After recovering from cancer and a 70 lb weight loss, I needed to go shopping. I had no idea where to start and what color clothes to buy. Holly helped me so much by giving me confidence to chose the best colors for me - in fact I learned black isn’t my color which I had been wearing. Now I can confidently buy clothes in the right colors for me like I did for this head shot. Thank you Holly!

Jodie

Holly is fantastic. I feel so empowered now to pick colors other than black to wear. I wish I would have done this sooner and am signing up my daughter to have her colors done as well. Thank you Holly!

My favorite thing about House of Colour so far is that all the colors work together.  I can layer tonal colors and it looks great!  Emerald sweater, pine shoes, ice mint jewelry and somehow it all works!  Magic!
