Merriam-Webster lists the definition of OMBRÉ  as the following – om·bré adjective \ˈäm-ˌbrā\ – having colors or tones that shade into each other – used especially with fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark.

Whatever the definition, here at Nathan Anthony we are digging the Ombre trend. As designers there are lots of images and sites that inspire us. Everywhere you look there is something different just waiting to make it’s appearance and strike inspiration within.

As of late, the new trend of Ombre has us itching to do something with it. We love the featured image above of an Ombre rug from The Cushion Shop. The colors are so bright and soothing and giving the rug a watercolor effect.  We are also in love with the texture and dimension Ombre brings, yet at the same time gives a room a light and airy feel. Sometimes the design creates a dance across the room like the image below from Decor-Tips. It’s almost like a row of dominoes.

And, on furniture, the Ombre effect is just as refreshing. Designer’s Guild has taken this trend to a whole new level in this very hip application of a pink/berry color combination.

In this last image below from The Decoist we are inspired by the blue drapes.

So… how about something with a little Ombré?
