Close [x] Southern Accents Beautiful Homes, Gracious Living, A Sense of Place

This vibrant shade might conjure up images of lipstick and nail polish, but when used wisely, it's surprisingly sophisticated. We've seen fuchsia for years in Oriental carpets, and it's been prized for centuries in roses, orchids, peonies, and dahlias.

The color is bold, so it's best used in small doses. For impact, try fuchsia in a tablecloth, tableware, or accent pillows. Pair it with neutrals, such as camel or gray, to energize a space. It's probably not the best idea to cover an entire room in fuchsia, but painting one wall will provide a punch. Try it behind a bed or in a niche.
