#TrendsdayWednesday: Ombre

#TrendsdayWednesday: Ombre

Characterised by colour fading from light to dark, as with all good trends ombre isn’t exclusively popular within interiors. Just as prolific in fashion, ombre hair has been seen everywhere, from the catwalk to the high street.

In the home this trend can feature in every context, from the walls right through to home accessories. With a little elbow grease you can create a stunning feature wall, through paint effects or even wallpaper.

While we haven’t got something quite so dramatic in our home, I can see a hint of this trend on our windowsill. Rather than single pieces, I have a few candle holders of the same design in varying shades. As you can see in the image at the top of this page, we order them from light to dark, creating an ombre effect.

This is one trend you can just nod to, with a single piece easily styled as part of a bigger interior scheme. Ideal paired with pared back scandi design, pieces don’t have to be bright and bold, adding a splash of pastel colour or even monochrome.

Of course, there are some beautiful pieces to buy, with this trend suiting every room in the house…

A stunning way to add character to textiles. Cushions, curtains and towels can all benefit from this trend, turning the everyday into something exceptional. Sometimes more subtle than white to a dark, different shades of the same colour look equally effective.

Not just limited to fabrics, as with my candle holders, glass and ceramics are the ideal way to bring this trend into your home. Easily styled, a plant pot filled with succulents can be the perfect finishing touch.

While there are some trends, such as monochrome, that should be completely embraced, ombre can be emphasised as little or as much as you like. It’s all up to personal taste!
