Guest Post: Design Shuffle

I’m Susi, a writer for Design Shuffle, an online community for decorators, interior designers, home owner and other design professionals to share inspiration, showcase their design projects and network. It's a great website for finding inspiration and discovering trends. One trend I've been seeing on Design Shuffle and design blogs is ombre. Ombre is a gradated blend of colors from light to dark. It is like a paint strip come to life in textiles and wall treatments. I've pulled together some examples of the ombre trend in interior design. What do you think? Love it? Hate it? Already have it?

Ombre Bed Design

Ombre can be a subtle gradation from light to dark, as seen in the pillowcases on this bed. Love the blend of light to dark shades. Ombre Drawer Design This painted chest of drawers has a lovely ombre front. Each drawer is painted in a graduated hue to create the ombre effect. Ombre Bathroom Design An ombre yellow shower curtain adds color to this neutral bathroom. This ruffled ombre shower curtain can be created in lovely colors to match lots of bathroom designs. Ombre Chandelier How gorgeous is this ombre chandelier made from paint swatches? Check out the DIY project on Hey Gorgeous. So pretty. Ombre Pillows Color dipped pillow cases create a lovely purple ombre look for a bedroom. This is another clever yet simple DIY project. Ombre Vase Accents You can create an ombre look by collecting glass or ceramics in gradated hues of the same color. These green glass vases would look gorgeous on a bookshelf. Red Ombre Pillow Design While many ombres go from white into a saturated color, some go from color to black or brown. This gorgeous pillow is a mix of deep, saturated reds. Ombre Living Room Design Ombre fabric makes a dramatic statement as floor to ceiling curtains in this living room. Need more decorating ideas for living rooms to showcase this current trend? Ombre can also be used in upholstery as well as in accent textiles such as pillows, rugs and curtains. [ Images 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 ] Want more decorating ideas?
