Q2: Pantone’s 15-559 Turquoise was named 2010’s Color of the Year by Pantone. Has turquoise figured into your work this year? Why do you think they picked turquoise?

Q3: When there’s a hot color out there, turquoise for example, are you more prone to accessorize with it or would you use on things that can’t be changed easily (or cheaply) like a sofa? What role do color trends play in your work and why?
