Style File – Ombre your Home
Looking to add a pop of color to your home decor but can’t decide on just one? The ever popular ombre trend could be for you.
Two trends in one: mint and ombre! Paint the wall with a base of your lightest shade. Then use painter’s tape to divide the wall into equal sections for as many colors as you want to use. Paint each section the appropriate color and then blend. Erica’s bright, sea-inspired wall is a must-have for anyone who wants to brighten up a room or create a focal wall.
THE SINGLE-COLOR OMBRE WALL
Choose a dark paint color with plenty shade to fade.
Paint the bottom half of your wall with a thick band of paint.
While the wall is still wet, use a spray bottle of water to thin the top quarter of paint.
Use a large natural sea sponge to spread and pat the paint up the wall.
Gather more paint as needed from the middle and bottom parts of the wall, using your sponge to blend the color as you go.
