ombre obsession

It's official.  I'm obsessed.  Ombre is everywhere and I'm loving it.

The French word for "shaded," ombre brings to mind subtle gradation of color - from pale to vibrant. Ombre effects are now seen in art, fashion, hair, makeup, interiors & more.

Originally ombre was named for a dyeing technique developed in the 1840s.  Wow! It's been around for a long time...  Now, the dip-dye craze has everyone making their own ombre fashions and home accents.

You can buy a little something ombre. 
I found this sweet bag on sale at anthropologie...

Or, you can apply your makeup with an ombre edge,
think eye shadow & lips...

...try your hand at making
your own ombre abstract art piece...

Or, create an ombre-esque feeling by using two different color draperies... a subtle tonal change like pink and orange... or aqua and a deeper hue of blue.

So, create your own interpretation of ombre.  Celebrate colour in all its wonder!
