Hi - been reading loads about hoc and doing your colours on here and was thinking i would like to do the draping sessions - any recommendations for the essex/london areas?

TattyDevine Wed 17-Dec-14 21:27:33

Do you want a House of Colour person or a really good incredibly talented House of Colour draped completely obsessed incredibly competent massively inspiration independent that I also know? I can recommend either, or both.

This woman draped a friend and she was excellent

Leeza2 Thu 18-Dec-14 01:03:56

I forgot to say, I think she is in Colchester.

Trudy Cooper is excellent, but my independent is also fantastic. The independent does a draping and provides a swatch book. I will PM you her details - her name is Janine Morgan.

I have been draped by Trudy Cooper but Janine has draped my husband and some friends and she is utterly amazing.

I would second Janine, who has done my colours too. She is really good, certainly knows her stuff!

Janine (I think she's Swann now) is really lovely, and knows her stuff. she explains it very well and is really thorough.

Janine sounds great better to choose someone with loads of recommendations. Thanks for the other recommendations too..

Does janine Come to your home or do you go to her? tatty don't know if you sent the pm yet I haven't received it yet smile

Janine will come to your house - apologies but she goes by the name of Janine Swann, indeed, as she got married, and my brain doesn't always remember that (!) (she had such a fabulous colour and style compliant wedding by the way!!!) - I'll PM you now. I might message her and see if she wants her details on here, she is not the type to want to self-promote in an in your face way but seeing you have asked for a recommendation there may be others who want to make a note of her details! I'll ask her first though and PM you now! x

You will need a full length mirror in a room with good natural light, but apart from that she provides everything needed.

TattyDevine Thu 18-Dec-14 15:44:13

Right, have messaged you x

MrsPeacockDidIt Thu 18-Dec-14 17:27:14

Can I have her details too please. Not for me as I've had mine done but a friend of mine who is in Essex and really wants to do it but doesn't drive.

Hello, just spotted this! I'm Janine, the colour analyst in Colchester! Very flattered by the recommendations! My blog is and you can contact me on Happy to answer any questions you might have smile I can travel if required, where are you based?

TinyLittleOne Thu 18-Dec-14 21:15:32

Love your website Janine - do you do style days as well as colour?

JewelleryObsessed Thu 18-Dec-14 21:33:36

Just colour at the moment, I'm keen to do style too. I offer free style advice because I haven't been officially trained yet but I do know quite a bit about the House of Colour style types etc ;)

mowglik Thu 18-Dec-14 23:10:54

Thanks a lot tatty! Really looking forward to getting my colours done, I know a lot of people think its twee or a load of tosh but I've always been interested in it

Janine I will email you! x
