“In general, I think we will see a continuation of a very personal approach to interior design, with pieces that have a story, whether they were made by your grandmother or by your favourite designer,” says Lisa. “It's a custom look that has charm and character, where every piece is beautiful, tells a story and looks unique.”

If 2012 was the year of Tangerine Tango, it only makes sense that Pantone would top it with a showstopper like Emerald for 2013’s colour of the year. But emerald is not the only colour dominating this year. “Bold, vibrant colours will be everywhere including orange, purple, raspberry, and shades of denim blues,” says Lisa. “And while colour was very prevalent at High Point Market, there were also plenty of layered neutrals – think of a neutral sofa with various shades of similar hued pillows.”
