mini trend: ombre

by Grace Bonney

it’s been a while since my last mini-trend but after spending a day in john pomp‘s studio yesterday for the nypl project i couldn’t ignore this one any more. just about everyone and their brother has been posting about ombre lately and i’ve finally given into the trend. for some reason the faded look didn’t always grab me but something must have knocked me over the head in my sleep because i woke up this morning totally hooked on the look. ombre really came back last year in fashion but it’s slowly, slowly starting to show up in the home world. AT posted some ombre rugs from west elm a while ago and i’ve been looking for more examples ever since. john’s gorgeous new stone vases were the first to really hit me, and then i realized that the new pot i’ve been coveting at williams sonoma is also an ombre fade. so i thought i’d compile some of my favorites from the worlds fashion and home and share them here. if you have any ombre favorites from the world of interior design or product design please share them below, i’d love to see some more great examples. i’m hoping to see some really beautiful ombre blankets and bedding hit the market. i’d love a rich blue or grey ombre coverlet for winter…
