Ombre in interiors is a new and emerging trend. Based on the colour transition from dark tones to light tones or from one tint to another, this technique can also be called “degradation” or “gradient”. It can be brought home in two ways – in a dramatic and obvious manner or in a simple, subtle way. When we say dramatic we mean ombre walls, flooring or curtains, bulky sofas etc. Subtle ways to bring the effect in is by adding ombre cushions, a singular lamp or cabinet. Either way, the trick is in balancing out the gradients and the surrounding colours harmoniously. We have listed a few of our favourites below.
Subtle or dramatic, ombre walls are jaw droppingly gorgeous and add oodles of personality to any room. When done correctly, this trend is an eye catcher – memorable and exquisite. While gradients of the same colour are indeed the safest bet, transitioning from one colour tone to another is a sure shot way of giving a space a unique spin!
There is something so luxurious and attractive about ombre effects performed on art pieces. As the background or the main piece itself, this form of adornment is a sure shot way to add elegance to any living space. Think tranquil blues transitioning into off whites or dramatic golds sizzling down to steel greys, whatever the colours, these pieces are one of a kind.
Although very unusual to come by and even more difficult to nail, we are simply in love with this ombre armchair and centre table. It is subtle, refreshing and attention seeking all at once. The unique spin of transitioning colours is a winner. Ombre cabinets and storage units are slightly more common but have the potential to breathe life into any dull or neutral space easily.
Rugs are evidently the easiest way to bring this trend home. Naturally most rugs display a certain level of gradient in colours owing to the yarn used. Obviously gradient colours on rugs are harder to come by, but these pieces can add layers of charisma to any living space. We love the collection displayed here for the options it presents in the type of colours. From bold to neutral hues, these rugs fit all types of spaces.
