Ombré Inspired by Nature

Nature gives us some of the absolute best inspiration for color, patterns, and textures. If you look at the top trends, you’ll find them in nature. Somewhere and somehow. Although, nature is always better at it. I think.

Take ombré. It’s everywhere. Yet, more refined and more subtle. These are from just in my backyard and house.

I love ombré in nature because it shows motion or progress.

Green baby tomatoes.

The shades of red tell me if the tomato is ready or almost ready.

My pickling cucumbers are the best example.

Such creative pattern. Ombré in a circle? Hmm, inspiration for a new project maybe?

Shades of different colors.

My poor hydrangea is about to die but the shades of blue are beautiful.

Hope you enjoy your Monday! Don’t forget to look to nature for your inspiration.
