If you Google the word “ombre” you’ll find a lot of information on celebrity hair styles. That’s not exactly what I was looking for. So I researched a little further. The best definition of the word that I found was from Fire Mountain Gems, “Ombré (from the French world “ombrer” meaning to shade) is a dip-dye technique used on fabric where the color is graduated from light to dark.” The term is also used to refer to design color in general, not necessarily limited to fabric. It was popular a few years ago, but I have found that it’s a trend that is back, as it is popping up everywhere. Lately, I’ve noticed it online, in magazines, and on television.
This week’s inspiration board is all about ombre! I found a few tutorials, and surprisingly a lot of erred links! Once again, forgive me if the link isn’t there. I must say, I love the dresser drawers the best. There are a few examples below. It’s a simple way to upcycle an old dresser or desk or add a little pizzazz to a nursery changing table. And yes, you are seeing it correctly… a design on a radiator! So clever!
I hope you enjoy my inspiration board!
