It would be fair to say that I’m not renowned for my colour co-ordination, but the emerald green that is the Pantone colour of the year for 2013 is something I can’t help but feel drawn to.
I love all things emerald, purple and turquoise and if you can spot the colour in a peacock feather, chances are I will love it. These colours feel so expressive – they seem to have a depth and a passion to them that other colours just don’t have. They make me imagine myself as some sort of exotic spice trader, roaming the markets of Marrakech, my long dark hair wafting cumin in my wake and the bells around my ankles tinkling excitedly. Sometimes I have a small pet monkey on my shoulder, wearing a deep purple velvet waistcoat.

For want of a pet monkey, I’ve been having fun this morning looking at all the beautiful green interiors stuff for this year. (I know, I know, I really work too hard sometimes.)
Here are some of my favourites:
