New Trend: Color Gradients
The trend for fade in, fade out color schemes comes with new technological advances, allowing designers to use graduated techniques in surface patterns and product development. To name a few, glass, plastics, fabrics and wallpaper have all gone for the flashy look. Ombre effects have been the most popular to date, showing a two-toned graduation of color from light to dark within the same color family. I have seen clothing highlight the effect with dramatic results, and who hasn’t paged through a fashion magazine recently to see celebs showing off ombre hair color treatments. Look for darker roots and lighter ends or
vice versa. (I will admit to having tried it myself).
A new spin on ombre is the gradient blend – two tonally different colors graduating into one another. They can either be used as decorative effect, or, to give direction and functional purpose to a piece of furniture.
