The ombré trend seems set to stay. And while I am sure you have by now seen the colourful grading technique on everything from walls to clothing, I have found some interesting options that are a bit more adventurous. Enjoy!
adjective – shaded or graduated in tone: said of a color
Origin of ombré: French past participle of ombrer, to shade ; from Classical Latin umbrare ; from umbra, shade
The technique works incredibly well on wood paneling on the left where the vertical panels contrast with the horizontal grading. Perfect for a nautical setting. The very classic grouping and worn textures of the room on the right is enhanced with an almost shadow-like grading, emphasizing the gorgeous ceiling height.
Deep teal provides a wonderfully modern touch on a traditional staircase while the chevron pattern is a fresh graphic interpretation.
Getting grading right can be quite a challenge, so why not opt for an easier version with bold coloured stripes and contrasting dividers between them? And dipping a tablecloth and allowing the dye to run creates a wonderfully informal effect. Get this look by dipping a damp cloth into the dye.
This is large-scale pixelated version done with paper is a very unique way create a graded focal. Use double-sided tape or spray adhesive to get the look! Dipping a chair and blending the colour adds a touch of modern to this traditional chair.
For something completely different, why not throw things upside down and start with the colour at the top? Balance it with a piece of furniture in a similar – or contrastic – colour. Or for the easiest option, choose the stunning wallpaper on the right!
And for something COMPLETELY off the wall, try this crazy colour-coded pencil holder – I will spend the whole day sorting pencils. LOVE IT!
Happy ombré -ing!
