Greg Baker of Ambassador Home and Angove Street Collective tells us what we should have our eye on this winter.

Have you noticed any trends coming up for homewares this season?
Soft pastel pink combined with charcoals, muted greys and navy is a really Scandi colour combination to watch out for this season. Don't forget to throw in at least one neutral tone, such as sand, oak or linen, to anchor any colour scheme. Rich gold and brass, and deep black with a raw industrial edge are also making a comeback this winter. Check out some of the pieces in Tom Dixon's new accessories range.

What's everyone's go-to product at the moment?
Quirky, boxy, wall shelves in oak and pale blue, by Bloomingville– can't get enough of them.

What colours would you pick if styling a room for winter?
Temper the Scandinavian cool of light oak and greys, with a splash of deep Marsala, the Pantone colour of the year. Sexy and warm. Think Brigitte Bardot on a fur rug.

What should people consider when styling their homes for the cooler months?
Lots of texture. Also, think chunky knitted throws, feather-filled cushions in linen, charcoal and midnight blue, and super-chunky floor rugs in salt-and-pepper tones, to sink your feet into.
