Five Ways to Ombré

So you’ve started seeing ombré everywhere – quite literally everywhere, including hair and fingernails – but are you willing to put it in your home? The great news is, ombré – the gradual blending of one color or shade into another, typically (but not always) from light to dark – is easy to find and can be applied to your home in a huge variety of ways.

It can be subtle or dramatic, wildly colored or neutral, horizontal, vertical, patterned, textured, and everything in between. Best of all, it can be irreversibly permanent or completely removable if you fear you may tire of it.

Read on for five application opportunities – from the standard to the most unexpected – for ombré in your home.

Textiles: drapes, pillows, bedding, curtains. It’s readily available and easy to find – or even make! – in virtually every color.

Wall or paint colors: keep scrolling to see why those are not the same thing. Think ombré tiles and paint in interesting places.
