Décor Dictionary: Ombre
I’m sure you have noticed this dramatic, playful trend around the web the last couple of years – it everywhere. Anything from hair and fashion, to furniture and décor… even walls and wedding cakes! It is definitely one of my favourite trends…
Ombre: is a French term meaning “shaded” or “shading” and refers to a dyed, printed, painted, or woven design of which the colour graduates from light to dark. Said to be an extension of the 60′s hippie tie-dye trend, Ombre can either be applied in a gradual saturation (the “dip-dye” effect) or in stepped, stripe-like shades (the “colour chart” effect).
