I am often accused of not allowing enough color into my life. As a generally rule, I can usually be found in black, grey, or white and I’ll be the first to admit that I tend to stray away from colors when trying to decorate. One of the reasons I tend to stick to my blacks and greys is my fear of clashing colors. There’s one new trend that seems to alleviate some of this problem. The new trend of ombre colors is the perfect way to satisfy my color fearing palate and these DIYs are a great way to add some tasteful color in your life.
