In case you haven't noticed, the ombré trend has pretty much taken hair color by storm. But this gradual change in hue — from light to dark or vice versa — doesn't just apply to your stunning locks. From eyeshadow, to yep ... that's right, every inch of your home, this colorful craze can be seen just about everywhere. And it's easy to see why, too. Ombré is such a fun way to express yourself, regardless of your decor aesthetic. More of a minimalist? Try barely-there grays. Or, if color is more your thing, be bold and paint an entire wall. Whatever your preference, here are 11 ridiculously cool ways to bring this chromatic style into your playful pad.
1. Add some color to your dining room.
2. Give your desk calendar a colorful makeover.
3. Up your #shelfie game.
4. Give your your dining chairs a pretty makeover.
Bored with your old furniture? Or, maybe you just want to show some TLC to your latest thrift store find? A little paint can go a long way, and before you know it you could be sitting pretty on your better-than-new ombré chairs. Learn how Brittni from the blog Paper & Stitch DIY'd this pink beauty.
5. Take the stairway to ombré heaven.
6. Deck out your bed with dreamy hues.
If you don't want to deal with DIY painting projects, consider upping the wow-factor in your bedroom with just a few cozy ombré accents. Mette from the blog Monsters Circus added this dreamy aqua accent pillow and throw to transform her bed into an oasis of slumber.
7. Make a statement in your entryway.
Wow your guests by turning your entryway into a stunning ombré showcase. This clever Brooklyn townhome mimics the sunrise with an orange-to-blue gradation that warmly welcomes visitors into your home.
8. Go bold (very, very bold.)
An ombré wall might make you a tad bit nervous, but when the end result looks as good as this, you might just fall in love with the idea. We sure did after seeing this gorgeous pastel room designed by Masquespacio as part of a language school in Spain.
9. Hang dramatic drapery.
There's something so casually glamorous about curtains pooling on the floor — doubly so when combined with an ombré effect. Pick up some plain white drapery panels so you can DIY these chic window covers, which bring the perfect amount of color without diminishing this home's boho appeal.
10. Warm things up with a cool gray area rug.
Ombré doesn't just apply to bright shades. Instead of bold blues, vivid yellows, or hot pinks, why not try gray, instead? This shag runner ( $107.99 ) feels cool and cozy — just what you need to keep your feet nice and toasty when walking around on chilly nights.
11. Update your tablescape.
The right decor can turn your nightly dinner into an affair to remember. These aqua dip-dyed napkins will set the stage for a tantalizing meal whether dining alone or throwing a colorful soiree. Check out this super-simple napkin DIY from the blog A Beautiful Mess.
