Orange you glad I didn’t say ombre?!

First, let me just tell you about my dysfunctional obsession with Pinterest. If you aren’t on it now, get your booty to the computer and sign up!! It will bring you hours of inspiration on anything and everything, fashion, furniture, recipes, fabric, and interior design to name a few. Embrace Pinterest and thank me later!

With the wonderful tool of Pinterest, I can feed my design addiction, specifically with my current inspiration, OMBRE!!! This trend is a shading or gradation of tone on pretty much anything. So, whatever color is used is shown in a scale of light to dark or vice versa. My friend decided to try out ombre hair, and it was a knockout! Since then, I am always drawn to this style in all areas of design. I just bought a home (yay! more adventures with that later) and am looking for ways to incorporate this design element in mi casa for sure. Check out some of the ways this trend is used.

Hair: I die.

As you can see, there is a lot out there! I would love to see this style used more in fabrics. I am sure we will begin to see it as the new collections come out. Love me some OMBRE!

In honor of doing some serious upholstery labor around here (have you seen Clar’s muscles lately!?!), Spruce will be closed for the holiday weekend. We will be closed Saturday, September 3rd, and back open on Tuesday, September 6th. We hope you have a nice break and a great time with friends and family. Happy Labor Day!!
