Your favourite seasonal colours?

Blue - it's always blue for me! But I do love to bring in a bit of blush and white in the summer. And plenty of sparkle in the winter months.

How does wearing the right colours for you make you feel?

Like me. In the right clothes, I can do anything. Wearing the wrong colours always drains me, both in my face and emotionally.

How would you describe your home?

Uplifting, calming, light. Understanding colour psychology has helped me to create a home that is cohesive and supports my family.

Favourite piece from the Kettlewell S/S18 collection?

I love the Milan knit jumper. It comes in a fabulous selection of colours and is so flattering. I love how it accentuates my waist.

Best feature (and parts you prefer to play down)?

Goodness, I don't think too hard about this. When I was young I did a lot of horse riding and I always knew that my washboard stomach was my best feature. Three children later and I'm not thinking in quite that way any more!

What’s your look?

I love Bretons and elegant, flowy shapes – a fairly understated but feminine look. I have to be in love with a print to wear it.

No outfit is complete without…

…a pair of fabulous shoes!

I would really appreciate finding an on-line Kettlewell consultant who I could retain to help me “build” a wardrobe. I live in Canada so I don’t want to make too many mistakes in style/colours given the cost of shipping. Are there any such consultants available?

Kettlewell Colours: Leesa Whisker is a stylist we know who does online style consultations via Skype. Her website is www.leesawhisker.com. She also has a Facebook page @whiskerstyle. Hope this helps...

Are you planning to bring some plus size clothing out x Had my colours done but finding clothes to fit not always easy .

Sure I’m not the only one!

Love the colour range and that you go to xs sizes. However, I would love more for Kettlewell colours to cater for petite ladies.

It is the first time I've shopped with Kettlewell and found the dress shirt (in small) I bought a bit too long on the sleeves and too wide at the cuffs, but fine on the shoulders, so it cost extra in alterations.

I don't know whether there is help in sizing or for petite ladies?

Thank you

Mrs Julia Ellwood.

Kettlewell Colours: Thank you for getting in touch. I have passed your comment on to the design team. We do have some styles that are better suited to petite ladies, e.g. the short cascade wrap. You are welcome to email us with any styles that you are interested in ordering and we can let you know whether they would be appropriate for a petite lady. Hope this helps.
