Ombré Makes the Grade in Home
It’s no wonder that the soft gradation of ombré has made its way from the runway to the house. This soothing color treatment is a excellent way to incorporate bold and soft colors into the same area. From bathrooms to rugs to lamps to exteriors, it seems like every bit of home decor can be found with this beautiful graduated colour scheme. See how you can integrate this eye-catching colour treatment to spruce up your next decorating project.
If you are having a difficult time deciding between a couple of paint choices in the same household, consider buying them both. It’s a quick compromise — simply divide up your wall and reach painting.
The ombré paint remedy in this entryway is subtle and stunning. The door and entryway are painted a cheery yellow that eases into a cool cream as you go up the stairs.

Painting the outside of a home a couple of unique colors may not work for everybody, but also the subtle ombré adds dimension and appeal to this home with hardwood siding.

Selecting a colour scheme and running with it’s always a daring option. The payoff in this kitchen — in which the cabinets and walls are different colors of blue — is huge! I doubt this space would look as new if the reduced cabinets were a basic white.

Bathrooms are a terrific place to use ombré. Choose tiles in various colors of the same hue and install them from dark to light (or vice versa) to attain a soothing ombré effect.

If you want to add drama to your bedroom, consider painting the ceiling a dark color and gradually blending that into a lighter colour when you paint the walls. The look seems natural in this area — nearly like the nighttime sky.

Try out ombré from the opposite direction. This room displays a subtler effect with the darker shade near the bottom of the wall gradually working up to the lighter colour.
If you are still feeling apprehensive about attempting this paint treatment on your own, installing a seat rail to break up the colors is a good way to get your feet wet.
