COLOUR ANALYST –
EXTREME OMBRE – RESIDENTIAL MAKEOVER – TEENAGE GIRL’S BEDROOM
The creative challenge for this project –
An unusual blue hue, not readily available on South African shores, had to be “created” by matching up to one of only two fabrics, that I could source for a local fabric house.
On this journey, the available blue-hue’d fabrics or paint swatches I looked at, were either too green or too blue, never exact.
To create this subtle OMBRE effect, I had to take the “created” matched blue tint and then mix percentages of other tints for the “in-between” hues.
The OMBRE position and areas for tints were then marked off, the tints applied and then blended. Once the effect was achieved, the “effect” blocked off by a neutral hue, with a defined edge.
Delicate wispy voile, hangs from ceiling mounted tracks, cocooning this young lady, while she drifts off to dreamland.
