What’s Your Tone?

Everyone falls somewhere on the warm to cool tonality scale.  For most people with cool undertones in their skin, distinctly warm colors will make them look sallow, and for those with warm undertones, cool colors will make them look wan.   Some lucky people, I happen to be one of them, are close to the center of the warm/cool scale, so that both gold and silver jewelry, for example, are flattering for me.

All of us have reds, blues, yellows, greens, oranges and purples that work well for us.  The difficulty is in knowing exactly which red and which blue, etc.  Understanding your whether your tone is overall warm or cool is an important first step to determining which of each of the colors will work best for your wardrobe, your home, and yes, even your jewelry.

Can you tell which of these bedrooms would be the right one for you?
