International color and trend forecaster Michelle Lamb is a popular speaker at High Point Market. At the Spring High Point Market, Lamb talked about a resurgence of pastels the likes of which the design community has not seen since the 1980s. Lamb is editorial director of The Trend Curve™ a widely recognized newsletter and a must have subscription for anyone in interior design and home decor.
The interview we did with Lamb at High Point Market Spring 2014 (see video in this post) highlights the ways blue and more importantly green will be trending over the next two years.
Lamb is clear to highlight how standard colors like blues and greens are made fresh with different hues and materials. She has an eye for the nuance in color and decor that identifies an early trend for something that will become the rage.
