Hello. My name is Wendy Jacobs and I am the House of Colour Consultant for Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket and Cape Cod. I welcome clients at my studio on Martha’s Vineyard for color analysis and personal style, classes. Other services include wardrobe decluttering and personal shopping.
Your Personal Journey
Using world renowned color theory and proven processes, I will identify the colors and styles that suit you, so you can project the very best aspects of your appearance to the world. You will walk out of my studio, both excited and re-energized having learned what colors and styles make you look your best - slimmer, healthier, and younger, a fantastic boost to your self confidence.
You'll be amazed how quickly you will find your own unique style being able to put outfits together successfully and with ease. Never again will you utter the words “I have nothing to wear” as you will build a wardrobe of clothes which you love to wear and look great in. You will be confident with new colors, understand what to buy first, save money, but most importantly feel confident and look fantastic.
How the service works
Clients usually start their personal journey with the color analysis class and then they progress through personal style and make-up classes next.
Each House of Colour class is designed to ensure that every client gets the individual attention they need, combined with the added benefits of working within a small group of 2,3 or 4 clients. Many clients thank me for "a wonderful day out" having enjoyed the social occasion as much as the color and image journey itself.
How you book a class
If you are interested in booking a space in a class or setting a date for you and your friend(s) then do get in touch, my contact details are above.
I run color, personal style, and make-up workshops regularly, including Saturdays, in my studio on Martha’s Vineyard. Come along with your friends, or join two or three others in a group that I've put together. You will be glad you did.

"Wendy - It was a pleasure to meet you and spend such a worthwhile day together. Kate is over the moon about the colour and style analysis and it was also great to narrow down my style options. We all occasionally succumb to advertising, and while I have always been a "classic", I have admired other styles and of course made mistakes buying clothes that just don't look quite right! Since our return from the Vineyard, both Kate and I have been ruthlessly paring down our wardrobes - it feels great."

Wow! What a wonderful experience to do a colour analysis with Wendy. She brings her great combination of "science, art and psychology" to the process. In the consultation she explains the theory behind the colour analysis and the method she uses to find "your best colours" . This paired with the logical explanation of how this will help you look better, save time and even impact your professional career keeps the Left side of your brain satisfied. Then the actual colour discovery process is fun and fascinating, this is the art part. Along the way her positive and energetic personality helps you embrace your colours with confidence, this is the psychology part. The way I described it to some friends is " it is a like your personal What not to Wear but without the nasty comments from Stacy and Clinton"
It is not a overstatement to say the consultation has changed how I look at colour not only for clothes but for everything. I use my colour wallet for everything now and have found that shopping it is so much easier, no more guessing.
Now, I can't wait to do my style analysis when she visits DC.

"I must share.......... My first day back at work after my colour analysis, the first person I saw said: "look at you in that lovely blue!" I think it was my blue jacket and the new lipstick I got from you!
Then when I was leaving the building an old male friend of mine said: "every time I see you you look younger!" I bet it was the lipstick.
And then tonight our dance instructor said: "Something is different about your hair!" Now I KNOW it was the lipstick!!!!!!!! Thanks for a great time Wendy!"

"I want let you know how much I enjoyed taking your color and style classes. I'll never look at my clothes the same way. The wallet has been such a help and conversation piece...lots of fun. Thank-you for enlightening me on the whole subject, after all I'm a gardener not a fashionista and I can use all the help I can get!"
Kate - New York
"Wendy - thanks so much for a fantastic day! Mum and I love our colours and style! I look forward to turning heads! "
Sharon - Boston
"I have to tell you that meeting you and utilizing the services of House of Color has literally changed my life. I have some work to do but to move forward with confidence and excitement makes the journey all the more precious. There are so many stories to share. It’s amazing that people see the inner and outer beauty when both are in harmony. So many people take notice and some are generous enough to stop me to say how beautiful I look.
I have been with my friend Nick on several occasions and he just stares at me and tell me how beautiful I am. I know that it’s the combination of the colors and the spirit. Thank you so much. There is balance in the universe so I also see the other types of glances as well. What can I do, I have been blessed to come into the full knowledge of the power that lies within and beyond the skin.
You cannot imagine how much fun Deb and I have supporting each other and just sharing our WOW moment compliments and opportunities.
Wendy, you are so kind and generous and I am just honored to have spent the day with you. I appreciate that you took the extra steps to make sure that I was colored correctly. Thank you so much."
Meredith - Philadelphia
"What an amazing experience! Colour and Style Analysis was a self-actualizing journey. I left my consultation with Wendy having a new perspective on myself. I was pleasantly surprised by the colours that work best for me and now have the courage to buy and wear colours and styles that I would have never tried before. I highly recommend Wendy and House of Colour - especially for professional women."
Megan - Virginia
Wendy - thank you so much. We had a wonderful time with you and learned so much. You are excellent at what you do!
Jynell - Martha's Vineyard
"A great experience with Wendy from House of Colour. She made the consultation relaxing and fun. I love all of my colors and feel it has opened my eyes to what colors really work for me. I highly recommend this positive consultation! Have fun with it!"
Laura - Martha's Vineyard
"Everyone wants to feel their best all the time, and this is what a consultation with Wendy provides. Knowing my colors (and my style soon!) gives me a focal point when it's time to pull myself together and put my best "face" forward. It has been fun learning about my coloring, then going home and sorting through my closet to see how close I actually was with the choices I had previously made. I highly recommend this for everyone; it's fun and informative and well worth the time and money. Get ready for compliments!"
Jane - Rhode Island
"What a fantastic day yesterday; I just wanted to thank you again. Ann and I are old friends ( "old" in more ways than one) and you gave us so many memories! As I told you, my mother has an in-law suite on my house and we simply could not stop yacking to her this morning about all our discoveries yesterday. My mother is a real color expert in her own right, and she thinks you were spot on with your conclusions. (She always insisted I was an autumn, even though she and my sister are much lighter). I always believed I was as pale as the rest of my family; I guess I got my olive-y skin from my grandmother from Ireland! Ann and I both bought new lipsticks today, too (Ann bought peach nail polish to replace her now verboten mauve); I'm still having trouble getting used to the bright shades, but my mother insists that bright lipstick is a real improvement for both of us! Ann just left for home to raid her closet, although we were both wailing about the abundance of black pants in our wardrobes, that really do comprise drum and bugle corps uniforms when paired with our new colors! Thanks once more."
Kristina - Martha's Vineyard
"What a wonderful, loving, uplifting, self-esteem boosting session with Wendy! Wonderful."
Sandi, Martha's Vineyard
Thanks so much again for such a fun, informative and inspiring morning yesterday! When I went home I should have gotten to work practicing for some upcoming gigs, but instead I went right to my closet and started cleaning out - it was SO much fun! Then today I took 4 bags of clothes to the Thrift Shop, and a few to Salvation Army - wow does that feel good. Steve loved hearing all about it - loves the makeup and has marveled at the autumn colors. Neither of us would have ever guessed I was Autumn, but I have to tell you, though I never paid much attention to those colors, I love them! I'm actually glad it turned out that way! I ordered my first top in a chart color. And now I look through more educated (hopefully!) eyes at nature's fall beauty!
Just wanted to say thanks again for such a wonderful experience. You are really great at doing this! Very professional and very warm!
