Hello! My name is Linda Davis and I am an Image Coach and Personal Color Specialist with House of Colour. I empower all of my clients with the knowledge of colors and styles that will look best on them. This same knowledge will enable YOU to discover your own coloring, body architecture and personal style. Then, we will put it all together to create an effective wardrobe that will assist you in your personal and professional life.
As the daughter of an artist, creativity was a part of my upbringing. I have a very interesting 1st grade picture that tells the story of my early experimenting with color and fashion! I enjoyed working in cosmetics retail and then as a makeup artist during my high school and college years. I studied Management at Georgia State University in Atlanta and held various positions within several leading Fortune 500 companies and then left the corporate world in the mid 1990’s to raise my son. It was my son that taught me to truly appreciate and celebrate those things that make each of us unique. Sometimes things that may seem like a weakness or flaw are what really make us exceptional and distinctive. I bring this passion and belief into my work to help each person appreciate, celebrate and make the most of who they are.
My family has moved through out the U.S. over the years and I’ve lived in a variety of places and had a range of lifestyles. The artist and fashion lover in me has embraced the many styles of my life chapters, surroundings and trends. The problem was that the various styles didn’t all embrace me! Like most women I blamed myself when something didn’t look good, thinking I needed to lose weight, exercise more or I just wasn’t attractive enough to look good. My intellect knew that not all colors and styles could be right on everyone, but my confidence took a hit when I didn’t have the knowledge to understand what would and wouldn’t work on me. Money was wasted growing the section of my closet that I didn’t wear.
When the time came to go back to work, I followed my passion for fashion and, in the process, discovered that I was not alone in my woes. I also discovered I love helping others look fantastic. I decided to learn everything I could to empower clients with the knowledge to look fantastic and use their image to reach their goals. I realized my calling when I launched House of Colour, Kansas City in 2012.
I work from a sunny home studio located in Leawood, Kansas. I am also available to travel to various locations to work with groups. I bring an element of education to everything we do together.
I won't just make you look fantastic, I'll teach the hows and whys behind your best looks. Whether you are a professional that is wanting to improve your personal brand, a stay-at-home parent or retired professional wanting to look great in more comfortable and relaxed attire, a bride that is beginning to plan your special day, someone struggling with a recent change in body size or someone that is just ready to find your best looks, join me for a journey of Transformation Education! You won't find anything like House of Colour, Kansas City in town. If you are looking for a speaker for a business or women's group, I love to share about the magic of color and style. Join a color analysis or personal style class here on line, or call House of Colour, KC to set up a private all-in-one session.
I highly recommend Linda and her skills to assist anyone in discovering one's most attractive self. I have felt so empowered by the information and Linda's translation specific to me, that I refer many of my friends to her. I've attended some of my friends' color analyses, because I love watching them wake up to their own unique beauty. The science of her color analysis is eye-opening, and Linda's compassionate, open style helps her clients participate in their own "color awakening." I have also taken the style and make up classes with Linda. They have been very empowering! I am more decisive and knowledgeable about what styles work best for me. I don't feel the pull from fashion trends like I used to.
The first "win" I experienced with Linda was the right lipstick colors. I'd spend my adult life depending on the women at many cosmetic counters to help me find 'my' lip color. I was unsuccessful until I took my color class with Linda.
I believe that Linda could work wonders with professional groups as well. I have not participated in a group event, but believe that she could empower any group to emphasize one's assets and convey a more professional image.
Above all, Linda is a joy to work with. She is informed, open and humble. Her kindness and scientifically-trained eye can help anyone achieve one's best appearance.
Knowledgeable, professional, personable, and transforming - the first words I thought of when describing Linda Davis. She combines a talent for maintaining the over-arching objective while carefully attending to the many details that complete a person's transformation from ordinary to extraordinary.
While the advisors at Great Getaways Travel dress professionally, I felt they would benefit from knowing how to look their best, dress their best, and highlight the many assets already in place. The results were positive and visible. All of us felt more confident, more comfortable, and that translated into improved attitude, performance, and profit.
Linda is one of the finest, most compassionate professionals I have ever encountered and I will continue to recommend her to any business that wants that "secret sauce" that encourages success.
I actually have a funny/great story about my 'colors' yesterday! I was already planning on doing some fallshopping after my appointment and, with my color swatches in tow, went to one of my favorite stores. Because I was picking within my new color profile I was getting complements on the outfits I tried (a beautiful lilac blouse with creamy large pearl necklace; gray slacks with lovely turquoise-like sweater, etc.) not only from other shoppers but from each of the salespersons as well. When I was paying for my items the salesperson said: "You look like Marilyn Monroe!" and that was a real spirit lifter for a 57-year old!
I thought the whole thing was so fun. It also gave me a little bit more confidence in choosing new things for summer and fall, and it's nice to hear some compliments about how you look right before you turn 30. I would recommend the process.
Having my color and style profile done by Linda last week in Kansas City was life changing, inspiring, eye-opening and thrilling.
Thank you for suggesting that I take my personal consult with Linda Davis. She is excellent at this work, and brings much beauty & insight to your company. It was a real privilege to watchher work and be the recipient of her skills.
Thank you so much for an amazing few days of learning and discovery, what an amazing experience!! I am still quite overwhelmed with the wealth of information that you shared and incredibly perplexed at how I could have been so far off on my colors, all that said I am 100% ready to embrace my own unique beauty and commit to making myself and my style/color journey a fun, empowering and exciting experience. When my plane landed in Denver I decided I needed to "hit the ground running", so I went shopping for a few items to embrace my new "Blue Autumn"/Romantic Classic lifestyle. This is an emotional journey for me, as you could probably tell when I was at your studio. I feel free in a way that I have never felt before and I am hoping that as I try my new colors I will finally see the beauty that is inside of me come through on the outside!!! Also you got my style personality "spot on", I could not have figured it out on my own, but it makes so much sense to me now!! It is amazing to watch you work and it seems that as you spoke, aveil was lifted from my eyes and it all made so much sense!!I LOVE your studio and everything about the way you presented yourself and the information that you shared with us!!! You have a desire to educate and empower your clients and you have an amazing sense of professionalism-I can see why you are so great at what you do!! Thank you, thank you, thank you a million times over!!! This was definitely a life changing experience for me!!!!
Thank you so very much! I'll be back for the style & personality course very soon :)
I have to say that my initial consultation gift to House of Colour changed my life last summer in such a positive way during a very stressful time. I feel much more confident in my appearance knowing that I am selecting not only appropriate clothing colors but make-up shades, eyeglass frame colors, etc. that enhance me.
Thank you for all your time and valuable help and coaching. I am so excited about what I learned. I feel a real understanding of how I want to portray myself and how to get there!
This was a game-changer. Thank you.
I've used Linda Davis, of House of Colour Kansas City, and what a wonderful difference it made! People ask me if I've lost weight, changed my hair, etc. and it is simply following Linda's guidance on color and personal style. Yes!
Wow - you made my dark (undereye) circles go away! By simply changing colors you made them appear and dissappear.
Amazing, enlightening, freeing and so much fun!
Thank you so much for everything. I was pretty unsure going into our meeting, and it way exceeded my expectations. Thanks for your patient explanations and your informative tips and advice.
On a humorous note, I was looking at my color wallet when I was in Joplin for work last week. Mind you, I put the appropriate stars and checks and percentages next to each color so that I am armed when I shop. I thought that I might have lost the wallet when I later checked my purse. I felt anxiety like I would if I thought I lost my wedding band! I retraced my steps in Joplin in a panic. The wallet had fallen out of my purse and was sitting in my trunk. What a relief! I obviously value what I learned...it isn't often I panic when I missplace something.
Our organization had Linda do a two-hour workshop on color and personal presentation for 70 women. It was a very informative time and helped our group to be more thoughtful about their appearance and color choices. Linda was very kind and professional in her presentation, and I highly recommend her for any group that needs to consider personal appearance.
Linda, the style class is amazing. I now will enjoy shopping for my Romantic Natural self. It answered so many questions and now I have the information to dress with confidence and really embrace my authentic style. Many thanks for a fun day.
Thanks so much for coming and speaking to our group, my team has been talking about nothing else. Everyone showed up today looking more polished which was exactly what I was hoping for!
Love, love, love my new colors!
Image Boot Camp has changed my life. I can't tell you how much more confident I feel. I have people comment to me all the time about how I always look so polished and put together. Thank you Linda, you were exactly what I needed.
I had such a great time with Linda. I wish I had done this years ago. I had no idea what a difference the right colors can make! Linda really knows what she is doing. She was very helpful and spent a lot of time with us. I highly recommend her.
I have been having fun exploring my new color palette. There are many Summer colors that I have never worn before, but I'm finding that I like the way they look. I have had a couple friends doubt that I am a Summer because of my brown eyes, but I have felt confident in telling them that I could see with my own (brown) eyes the way those colors looked on me. Thanks for making it an educational experience.
I'm getting my hair done on Friday and I will make sure I tell my hairdresser that we need to focus on summer/cooler shades so everything will be in harmony.

P.S. I broke up with black. I found some mushroom brown jeans, dark brown/gray jeans, denim jeans, and navy pants so I can retire my black pants.
"I went thru both the color analysis and style analysis 1.5 years ago...The information you learn going thru these sessions is surprising and I have tested it, and it really makes a difference. Lets be honest here, do you really think a guy that looks like me could get all these women .... it is the clothes & style !!!! LOL"

I think I've only missed a couple days of wearing lipstick since our session! I wore makeup before but never in the right colors. Now I know what looks good and it's much more enjoyable to do everyday. I hope you never underestimate the impact you are making in the lives of people. It has changed my whole approach and attitude towards clothes and makeup. I now see them as a way to put my best self forward. Thank you for shining light on a whole new path for me to explore.
Thanks! I'm finally enjoying shopping again!
