Ombre Wallpaper – 7 Ideas You’ll Simply Adore

It’s a big trend, and it’s having its day in a whole host of places including fashion, hair, nails and even baking. Ombre is its name, and it’s all about graduating colour from light to dark. But did you know ombre is also trending in home décor? Here’s how to nail the look and bring this latest trend into your living space through the medium of ombre wallpaper.

What is ombre?

Derived from the French verb ombrer, ombre means ‘to shade’. In a nutshell, it’s a technique that gives the appearance of one colour blending into the next, from dark to light.

Ombre differs from gradient colour schemes in that gradients are a progression of different colours ranging from light to dark, whereas ombre is more a blending of hues of the same colour family, progressing from light to dark.

Why is ombre so popular in home design?

Ombre is your versatile interior design friend. If you want to create drama in your living space, go for a bold colour palette, or a striking ombre wall mural.

If on the other hand you are more into subtle décor, that’s possible too with ombre. Simply choose a pastel colour family and enjoy the calming effects of the delicate blends.

Not everyone is a fan of single block colours. By introducing ombre into your interior, you can add a touch of interest and intrigue, as well as enjoying an array of hues rather than just one.

The great thing about ombre wallpaper is that it makes the whole job of bringing this look into your home a breeze. Compared to the alternative of using tricky painting techniques to achieve the colour blend or gradient you fancy, which let’s face it is best left to the pros, hanging ombre effect wallpaper is a whole lot easier, and something you’ll usually be able to master yourself, if you so desire.

How to use ombre wallpaper to best effect?

There’s no room in the house where ombre wallpaper won’t do it proud. From bedrooms and studies to living rooms and bathrooms and kitchens alike, there is always a place for ombre.

If you’re going for bold ombre prints, then a good tip is to keep them to smaller areas, such as an entrance hall or compact washroom, or use them to create a feature wall. The lighter coloured ombre effect wallpaper styles work best on larger walls.

It’s also possible to introduce the ombre or gradient look to your walls courtesy of a wall mural. If you have a penchant for the dramatic, then this is probably a good route for you. Think about what inspires you and use that as a basis for your choice. From forest scenes and mountain panoramas to ocean vistas, there’s something to suit a whole array of muses.
