Capturing Light and Color Transitions
Watching a sunrise or sunset, and witnessing the subtle changes of light and color from moment to moment puts us into that tranquil state of mind and heart that we feel as peace.
Ombré /ˈɒmbreɪ/ (literally “shaded” in French) is the gradual blending of one color hue to another, usually moving tints and shades from light to dark. With the Ombré technique applied to a room of your home, it can feel as if you’re capturing the shimmering light, gently passing through the space.
Ombré – using one color from lighter to darker shade
A light-to-dark shade application of a single color, (see examples in the slider) can give any room such a calming quality. Sometimes an accent wall can be enough to create a sense of subtle movement of light. Giving the whole room the Ombré treatment can create a feeling of being bathed in a softly changing light.
Ombré – gradually blending two or more colors
When using two or more colors in Ombré wall treatment a more dynamic movement effect can be created, especially if the brush strokes are more visible or when blending colors of the cooler and warmer color spectrum.
Changing perception of space with Ombré
Using Ombré with lighter shades towards the ceiling and darker shades or hues towards the floor can also change the perception of height of the walls and make a room feel taller and larger than it is.
