The Ombre Effect

There’s a new take on the monochromatic color scheme and it has become a major trend in both the fashion and interior design community. Ombre, French for “shaded”, is a technique used on fabrics that subtly shifts from light to dark in color. We love how well these complementary shades work together. It really creates a relaxed elegance in any space you choose to incorporate it in.

As you can see designers are choosing to use this fading technique on pretty much everything. From shoes to purses to pillows, this trend is here to stay.

Take a look at how well it works in the home.
