On flooring and walls, colourful gradients are strikingly effective in evoking summer sunsets. The elegant pastel shades also serve to soften out industrial schemes and spaces characterised by raw concrete and steel. So whether you are transforming a bedroom or living area, the latest wallpapers and vinyl flooring solutions are the easiest and often the most cost-effective way to achieve an ombré effect. A graduated dyed look is one to dip into, because this trend is not going to fade.
