Confessions of an Interior Designer: Ombré

Hello sweet friends,
I am here today to set the record straight on this whole Ombré thing.  While I think that it is quickly making its way 'out' just as fast as it made its way 'in' I still want to clear the air on what it really is.


having colors or tones that shade into each other —used especially of fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark (Merriam-Webster)

shaded or graduated in tone (

For some reason this has been keeping me up at not (maybe a little dramatic), so I just want to make sure we are all on the same page.  A few things to keep in mind:  Ombré is graduated.  It is not an abrupt change in texture or color, it takes time and is gentle.  Above are some great examples of colors gradually being transitioned to either another color or an absence of color(white).

Perhaps I am crazy and no one really cares if Ombré is being done 'right'.  Perhaps my readers do care.  Or perhaps this is just a Confession of an Interior Designer.


haha I haven't even noticed...but I'm not a super fan of it either...
I'm not a fan of it either, but I am grateful that it just so happened to be a fad while I was growing out my poor-decision dyed hair! Keeley swears it was trendy even if I thought it was awful! :)
You are too cute!!! Some people go pretty dramatic with "ombre" hair!!!

I honestly am not into the Ombre thing.. just not a fan. I don't like modern things much, I mean as far as our house goes. It looks like a bunch of junk, which it is filled with wonderful pieces of junk from different ranches and antique shops.
