The trend in fashion and homeware for ombre – an effect where one color fades into another – has finally hit our walls, and it’s a relatively straightforward finish to achieve. Apply two coats of your lightest shade over the whole wall. Then, pick a darker hue and mix it with scumble glaze until you have a fluid solution. Starting at the bottom of the wall, use a large, soft brush to apply the darker color. At the point where you want to start graduating between the two shades, mix a new, mid-tone glaze made from the light and dark colors. Slowly brush this glaze upwards, applying thin layers to “fade” the two tones together. This look works well in rooms with high ceilings.
