On Trend: 10 Ways to Dip Dye
This fresh take on color adds splashes of style all around the house, from kitchen stools to bedding
Do you love traditional lines and classic shapes, but still want a dash of something unexpected? The dip-dyed trend is for you. Taking last year's zest for multicolored ombre treatments to a subtler place, dip-dyed furnishings and accessories bring a little dash (or dip?) of the unexpected to the standard forms we love.
This may be the most updated piece of Shaker-style furniture you will ever find. A loveseat like this would bring a fresh breath of sea-salty air to a modern beach bungalow.
The simplicity of this side table makes it versatile — sidle it next to your bed or an armchair, and you've got fashionably convenient storage as well as a space for coffee.
Take your favorite desk, table, chairs or stools and create your own dip-dyed look with a favorite paint color, as shown on Design Sponge.
With an extra layer of dip-dyed protection, these wooden spoons deserve pride of place on your counters, or hung on a wall to display their beauty and their function.
Dip-dyed effects are most striking when combining a bright color and a natural material — such as these raw wood blocks. What a striking conversation piece at the end of your sofa.
Even your accessories can add a punch of simple color. Keep this tote in the entry for quick trips to the store. When it's not in use, it looks gorgeous sitting next to an entry table.
