Today we celebrate the world of ombre! For those of you unfamiliar with the term, simply picture a paint sample card from your local home improvement store, and you’ve got it! Rather than merely being a collection of vibrant stripes, ombre design creates a color gradient that progresses from lightest to darkest. Ombre is hardly a new trend. For the past couple of years, it’s been gaining popularity, first with ombre hair, and now with a slew of ombre items such as cakes and decor.
Do you want to get in on the ombre action? There’s still time to enjoy this trend in all of its shaded glory! Today we explore some of the most popular ombre design areas, from furniture and textiles to walls and other artistic statements.
When it comes to ombre furniture, the biggest trend involves painting the drawers of dressers and desks so they closely resemble the swatches of a paint sample card. Take the peachy-rose shades of the dresser below. This DIY project makes over an IKEA furniture piece with the help of a strategic paint job. [from Decor8]
