Now that we all know what Ombre’ is, how many of you actually know when it started?!  This time last year we started to see the “new” trend creeping in our favorite celebs hair styles. However, I bet most of you didn’t know that this style originally started in Hollywood salons in the 1970’s and has been slowly growing in popularity over the years. It wasn’t until last year that the Ombre’ trend ignited and spread like wild fire through the hair world! online payday loans

 Here at A.Clore Interiors we tend to pay little attention to trends because you never know how long they will remain “trendy”. However, we really started to take notice when the Ombre’ style spread into the fashion world last summer.

Ladies, for the past few weeks we’ve given you a look at the color trends of 2013.  So now it’s time to give the gentlemen in the crowd some attention.  This week we have scrolled through our Sherwin-Williams paint deck and created a few different color palettes that are sure to help any man fix up what hopes to be his “bachelor pad!”

 Here at A.Clore Interiors we know that for most men picking out paint colors is no easy task.  That’s why we have gone ahead and done most of the work for you…free of charge 🙂 Now everyone has a favorite color, so we’ve taken the most common ones and put together some color schemes that you can make your own.  The classic favorites are Blue and Green but we have added a Neutral and Gray palette for those men who aren’t ready to “commit” to such a bold change.  Scroll down to see what we have come up with.
