Daydream in Ombre

Ombre is a French term for shaded. It’s usually in the form of gradually changing from a light to dark color or gradients of different colors. It can be woven directly into the fabric or sometimes it’s achieved through dip dyeing.

I’m not sure when my love affair of ombre began. Probably when I was young before I could even figure out how to pronounce the word. It probably goes right along with my desire to own things (dresses, shoes, jewelry, etc.) & supplies (ribbon, sequins, paper, fabric, etc.) in pretty much every color available just so I can arrange them in rainbow order and enjoy the ombre-like effect in the shades of each color. You should see my closet!

Before I go any futher into discussing my rainbow coding everything I own, I’d like to share with you some of my ombre finds! I’ll confess. I had to finally post this post because my ombre inspiration folder was bursting at the seams! It’s a popular trend indeed.

What’s your favorite color to see in ombre? Do you love it most on cakes? clothes? hair? paper?
