The 2011 Emmys may be over, but one winner still resonates in my mind: Kristen Wiig's Zac Posen gown. The gradual brown shades brought a mature and luxe look to the SNL funny lady, leaving me inspired to add some sultry ombré décor to my casa.
Much as Kristen keeps her jewelry minimal, let ombré's rich effects serve as the focal point in your home, like with the Vera Wang Bedding Dip Dye Dot Collection ($90-$300 each). The simple design is fresh yet showstopping; plus, even the polka-dot Decorative Pillows ($90) are ombré-ized!
Don't want to commit to the color gradient trend? The West Elm Dip Dye Throw ($39) and Vintage Silver Ombre Glasses ($22) are sophisticated and expensive-looking accents at an affordable price. When budget is not an issue, amp up those layers and add texture with the Horchow Ombre Hide Rug ($699). In fact, don't be afraid to try ombré in all different fabrics; the velvet Adelphi Lounge Chair (price upon request) provides comfort and style in the most subtle way and is perfect for some cozy Fall lounging.
