Have you ever noticed how opening the curtains to a leaden grey winter sky versus the vivid blue of a fine summer morning can instantly transform your state and your outlook on the day?
Do you have a certain thing for hazels brown eyes or a flash of baby blues that sends a rush of emotion through your body?
How do you feel when you walk into a spring meadow and find yourself lost in a kaleidoscope of wild flower colour against a hundred shades of green?
Colour has the power to curve and craft our perception of the day. It can transform how we feel in an instance. The power of colour is sometimes fire engine red obvious and often subtle shades of warmth but it is always mysterious.
I believe in harnessing the power of colour to energise or calm, ground or uplift and shape the quality of life. I believe colour is an unlimited but often untapped resource that can bring a wealth of experience and emotion that is freely available, it is all around us.
Our mission is to help you tap into the power of colour

Colour Your Wardrobe Consultation
Throughout the course of history, we have been conscious of the capacity of colour to convey something about who we are, where we are going or what we aspire to be. From armies of marching red coats to mere hints of colour in a cufflink we intuitively respond, sometimes in primal and profound ways to the presence of colour and the outfits worn by people around us whether, fear, confidence, respect, intrigue – in the wardrobe we wear and the colour coded into it without a doubt, we can influence how people perceive us and respond to our personalities.
With our Colour Your Wardrobe consultation we can help you understand the way you wear colour and subtly (or not so subtly!) make the statements you want rather than leaving it to chance. Colour affects us emotionally, psychologically and physically – its impact is immediate and lasting. You can use the power of colour to alter body shape, appear more youthful and vibrant and uplift your spirits.
Colour Your Wardrobe consultation takes 3 hours in Miranda’s colour studio. A colour x-ray is taken – opportunity to explore your personality, your likes and dislikes, goals and carefully assessing your unique colouring. Helping to draw up a colour prescription, an individual personal palette of colours that will best support your authentic self and help you to see the link between personality and your unique colouring. You will receive a personal palette of individual colours – it will also give advice on fabric types and patterns, hair, jewellery and accessories.

Colour Couch For individuals or groups, we offer the opportunity to sit back and relax on the colour couch and delve into what colour means to you and your life using a series of questions to take a “colour x-ray” we will take a look at your inner colour consciousness. We will help you understand your colour palette, your colour potential and your colour personality. Many people we find have a sense of the importance of colour in their lives and their wardrobe but struggle to articulate what this means and what the impact it has.
To make the most of colouring your life, we provide a session to answer these questions and provide to you some colour insights, colour solutions and colour conclusions. This service can be provided as a one to one in Miranda’s colour studio or we are pleased to travel and set up the colour couch at a location of your choice, whether a hen party, gathering of friends or work do.
All you need is an open mind and a couch!
