My name is Donna Cognac. I have been a professional color consultant for almost 24 years. I select personal color palettes or ‘harmonies’ for men and women to wear and I train new consultants to do the same. I help homeowners choose colors for their home interiors to either increase the saleability of their homes if they are selling or to enhance enjoyment of their homes if they are staying.
I am passionate about color. The color on your face, in your hair, on your body, in your rooms, and anywhere you look…can be a wonderful source of pleasure and pleasure enhances your quality of life. To get the most out of color….(and why shouldn’t you? It’s essentially free)…you need to make conscious color decisions.
In my blog, I’ll give you tips to heighten your awareness of subtle but important nuances of colors. I’ll tell you why the difference made by adding just a tiny touch of black to a color will also change the energy of that color. I’ll show you that an ever-so-slightly blackened color will communicate a very different message from the un-blackened version. Why a pastel blouse that you accidentally washed in a load of dark colors might suddenly be more flattering on you. Why some colors feel “right” on you and others feel in-authentic.
Color is glorious. Used wisely, it can make you look better, feel better and live better. I welcome your comments and questions.
