Unless you’ve been living under a rock you would have noticed that Ombre is without a doubt the buzz trend of this year. It has captured our hairstyles, high street, bakeries and, of most interest to me, our interiors.
Ombre is the french term for ‘shaded’ or ‘graduated in tone’ and is the perfect blend of using light and dark as reflected in nature.
I first observed the trend in our office when DG launched their Saraille fabrics in their last Spring Summer collection. It was without a doubt the design that received the most ‘oooh’s’ and ‘ahhh’s’ from everyone and it is with no surprise as it is an incredibly striking effect of which we should all embrace (while it lasts!).
Your homework this week is to go out and bring some Ombre to your lives…(not to be mistaken with hombres). Here is some inspiration….
