Trend Alert: What Do Cake, Shower Curtains and Hair all Have in Common?

 

 

One of the hottest new Design trends of 2012 is Ombre. A French word which translates to “shadow”,  Ombre is simply a gradation in hue from light to dark or dark to light.

When I first started to notice the Ombre hair trend, I thought the celeb really needed to get to her stylist. Now I understand it is a “look” and not a way to simply save on Salon visits.

      Thanks so much Jennifer. As far as my new website… I too will be so glad when it’s done. I probably have gained at least 5lbs. since working on my new site because I have done little but sit in front of my monitor for 8-10 hours a day for the past two weeks.

      me too Kristie, and in my case they would be gray..definitely a look I am not ready to embrace.

    I never saw a desk painted like that- really love that look. You will do so well this year and you will be ready for it! I feel sorry for you on the computer- it is such a lot of work!

    I am IN LOVE with the ombre trend and the drapes you find are absolutely fabulous! I am currently looking for new dining room drapes. Do you have any idea where I can find this kind of fabric?
