It’s the pop of color that always brings a smile, and it’s not as hard to incorporate into your home as you may think. Is fuchsia what you need to breathe new life into your space?

Decoist calls fuchsia “refreshing, energizing and varied. Just like the flower it originated from, its diverse tones of fuchsia range from purple overtones to pinkish hues depending on the intensity of the reds and blues involved,” they said.

For HGTV, fuchsia provides a more sophisticated way to use pink in the home. “Looking for a pink that’s more grown up than pastel pink and a little more subtle than “hot pink”? Fuchsia is the color that you’re looking for,” they said.

Fuchsia can set a color palette for a vibrant expression of individual style. Or provide a bold and stylish accent color in an otherwise sedate space.

This living room shows how fuchsia couches can be the star without overwhelming the space. The trick is sticking to soft neutrals to round out the room.

A similar effect is achieved in this dining room, with upholstered stools and dramatic drapery.
