Ombré

The ombre trend has begun in the hair world a long time ago, but there’s one area where you may not have noticed ombre’s all-presence: interior design. I feel 2016 was actually all about ombré – the French word used to describe the gradual blending of one color hue to another, usually moving tints and shades from light to dark.

Way back in 2013, The Pantone Institute identified ombre as a trend to watch, and a few years later it’s hit the big time. Ombré’s momentum continues as designers keep creating new and creative takes on the color gradient. I see it popping up across homewares, furniture, sculpture and installation art and used in a new all-over way and with new materials.

You can buy one of the many gorgeous accessories, textiles and art work to add a twist to your home or you can try a DIY and make your own piece! How about adding an ombre vase or plant pot for example? A quick internet search will show you many tutorials so you can make your own for a fraction of the price.

Get inspired!
