My mission is to get you looking and feeling great about yourself and your wardrobe by providing you with the tools you need to shop and dress confidently and authentically.


Before my sessions with House of Colour I would look in the wardrobe and feel overwhelmed. My wardrobe was jam packed, but I still could not decide what to wear. Each day was a boring black work suit, pale shirt, striped jumpers and jeans at the weekend and the same little black number for evenings out with friends. I felt invisible.
 

Caught in a permanent cycle of overbuying, each payday would be the same, spending time and money treating myself to new clothes that made me feel good for two minutes. I never managed to create any exciting new outfits.

Invitations to a wedding or evenings out would fill me with dread - what can I wear? I would buy something new. Little did I know I was always making the same mistakes. Buying unflattering colours and styles that didn’t make me look or feel good.

I would study fashion trends trying to recreate the look and by the time I had managed to get some of the key pieces the fashion trend had moved on. It always felt as though I was rummaging around in someone else dressing up box. None of it felt that it reflected me.

In March 2014 I got engaged and it was my turning point. My mum gifted me a colour analysis and style session as an engagement present and my House of Colour journey began.

The House of Colour sessions not only changed my wardrobe but also my mindset. I now shop with good habits, buying items that I know will work for me and go well with clothes I already own. It saves time and money when you know your colours and style.

Fast forward 7 years and two beautiful children later, my wardrobe has adapted through pregnancy being a new mum and returning to work. I love my style and don’t feel mumsy or frumpy. I get such a buzz from opening the wardrobe and planning an outfit from what I already own. It is less effort to get dressed now. I’m doing my bit for the planet too as I shop mindfully. New purchases are about keeping my look current, picking from fashion the very best of the trends that I know work for me and my wardrobe.

House of Colour has been a huge positive in my life. In 2018 became a stylist so that I can pass on this amazing knowledge to future clients of my own and help them to start their journey. 

So the question is, are you ready to start your very own journey? Get in touch with me to chat more

I had a colour consultation with Sophia and was gobsmacked at how wearing my best colours really altered my appearance! Next step was the style analysis to put everything together and I learned so much about myself, not just my wardrobe. It really was a life changer! Now I can shop in confidence and love getting creative with my autumn colour palette. The consultations were a lovely bit of ‘me’ time, very relaxed but extremely informative!

It was so lovely to meet you today.

I wanted to say a huge thank you too. I really enjoyed it and the time went so quickly. I could have stayed all day talking with you!

I have already started to pull some bits out my wardrobe that I don’t wear and aren’t in my season. It is very satisfying to know why I don’t wear them now!

My mother and I visited Sophia for a Colour Analysis day as a joint treat ahead of my wedding next year. We both lack confidence in shopping and tend to stick to the same ‘safe’ (or so we thought) pallet in white, black and grey, hoping to blend in and not be noticed for our outfits.

What Sophia showed us was absolutely amazing- our colour pallets were both different but both so ‘us’ and absolutely gorgeous. Whilst in Sophia’s beautiful studio we tried the colours that worked for us along with the make-up, our confidence grew immensely and we both felt fantastic! Sophia was wonderful with us both and instilled such a sense of trust that this journey will really change our lives- it’s not just about clothes, it’s about confidence in ourselves which will enhance so many aspects of our lives. We are so pleased to have met Sophia and excited to continue the journey with styling - we can’t wait to build our new wardrobes!!
