About us

House of Colour has been offering the best personal Colour and Style analysis since the mid-1980s. The roots of colour analysis go back to Hollywood, where Robert Dorr, an artist who knew of Johannes Itten’s theories of colour groupings developed in the Bauhaus, observed how an actress could look wonderful one day yet tired and older another. He recognised this was the effect of the colour she was wearing on her skin, and the beginnings of colour analysis were born. This developed quickly into a 4 seasons analysis framework.

In the 1980’s, a leading Image Consultant in the U.K. named Carolyn Miller recognised that while easy to understand, the basic four seasons system on its own was too rigid, inflexible and not sufficient to provide each client with an individual colour analysis that was both representative of their best colours and easy to use.

Carolyn evolved the system further to introduce the flexibility required to honour every individual skin tone and the House of Colour system was created. The London-based U.K. company became a franchisor and developed the highest standards of practice and training growing a network of franchisees with exclusive areas in the U.K.

In 2008 the company was bought from the retiring Directors by 4 existing U.K. franchisees and the dream to extend this franchise company worldwide was born. We trained our first U.S. Franchisee in London in 2010, have a team of Franchisees in Greece, UAE and the Netherlands, as well as growth here in the UK.

This system is trained to the highest standards in both the UK and the USA & our expansion is exciting and rapid. While fashions, trends and fads come and go, the theory of colour, as interpreted by House of Colour, remains based on science, logic and objectivity; enabling every client to take their individual WOW! colours and look and feel wonderful. Your confidence grows and the journey to empowerment begins!

House of Colour believes that everyone is individual, and it is our mission to provide our clients with the tools and knowledge to feel confident as their authentic selves. We are welcoming to all and celebrate people of all sizes, ages, races, faiths, those with different abilities and all those who identify as a part of the LGBTQIA+ community.

We are proud of our rich history and look forward to continuing to expand across the world to revolutionise the way we define beauty and style and celebrate the individuality whilst curating confidence.
