After five days of roaming Europe's largest design event, Maison & Objet in Paris, and consuming one too many croissants, Angove Street Collective owner Greg Baker, has returned home with the latest trends for homewares and furniture for 2017, as well as inspiration for Ambassador Home.
"From vibrant pops of colour to striking patterns, this year was all about reintroducing colour into the home and playing with unique colour combinations," says Greg.
"For the first time in quite some time, shades of red and burgundy were teamed with soft pastel hues. This unusual partnership created a balanced look that stood out amongst other colour stories."
"You can see the unusual combination of saturated and pastel colours in the red and green rug hanging in this display. Rugs and cushions are breaking away of the recent monochromatic palettes."
"Have you ever thought about matching the colour of your wall to your carpet? This dramatic display showed how to create a daring space with colour by mixing burgundy and cool blues and grey."
"The Musee D'Orsay (housed in the old Gare D'Orsay train station), renowned for it's impressive collection of Impressionist art, is sporting a re-freshed display palette of tan, ivory, black and white."
"I was really excited to see this colour palette from the Musee D'Orsay popping up in pieces through the fair."
In a nutshell, 2017 is about unexpected colour and pattern combinations - now you won't be surprised when you see burgundy teamed with mint and pale peach next to a bright shade of emerald green.
