Obsessed with Ombre

ombré noun – From the French word ombrer (to shade). Having colours or tones that shade into each other —used especially of fabrics in which the colour is graduated from light to dark.

I have recently become obsessed ombre and first discovered this trend through cake. I loved the effect of tinting layers of cake a different shade.

I next noticed the ombre trend incorporated into interiors and furniture. My plain white IKEA desk is begging to be painted in peach ombre!

  • I LOVE ombre nail idea!! It looks soo cool but seems a bit tricky/fiddly!

    • It looks very fiddly, especially considering I can barely paint my nails properly at the best of times. Will attempt when I am feeling particularly competent one day! ;)

  • LOVE LOVE LOVE ombre! Really wanna make an ombre cake, but seems like so much effort :(

    • SO much effort. And possibly beyond my technical abilities. I will give it a go someday!! :)
