Bold and Striking!
Too many bright colors make for congestion. An overload of white, grey and brown can lead to monotony and blandness. Adding a color like fuchsia can instantly light up and entire room and remove any sense of boredom. Yet, poise and panache is always the key. Using fuchsia can be similar to an extravagant stroke on canvas. It might be risky, but when you get it right, it can transform the entire aura of your surroundings. The multitude of shades that fuchsia comes in also helps you mix several different hues and values to get the ideal result.

Contemporary designers and home owners are gravitating towards clean and well defined lines coupled with muted tones. This trend makes an accent color like fuchsia or even a color scheme that incorporates this vibrant tint all the more relevant. While a home needs to present a balance between the tranquil and the playful, it should most importantly reflect your unique personality.

Blending with Natural Greens and Fresh Yellows
Fuchsia on its own can sometimes seem a touch odd and if you are going for a more colorful and rich look, then adding a tinge of green is the best way forward. Since green and fuchsia are such a natural combination that our eyes are accustomed to, the combination looks great indoors as well. In case you are opting for more inviting interiors that have a warm glow, then a splash of golden yellow (much like the rays of sun kissing the fuchsia flowers!) is the ideal complementary color. Remember though that various shades of fuchsia work well only with either muted backdrops or natural colors.

When it comes to colors, interiors are best served when following nature’s lead. The easiest approach to using any strong color is to repeat it more than once so as to attain visual balance. A simple background in white or light shade also helps immensely.

Accentuate with Flexibility
Many among us are not too excited when it comes to experimenting with bold colors like fuchsia. The reasons are often valid and understandable. It takes immense effort to change the color scheme of a room, let alone the entire house. Add to it the cost factor and ‘trying’ out new hues is a risk not worth taking for many home owners. But there are always simpler ways to try out audacious shades. Accent fabrics, décor and accessories are the most cost-effective solution one can look towards. A couch cushion in hot fuchsia in the living room couple with wall art, beautiful matching pillows and rug in Hollywood cerise in bedroom or daftly folded fashion fuchsia towels in the bathroom can add the color with little makeover.
