Fuchsia is the ultimate hot pink, and it’s hotter than ever this month.
Anne Roselt, Plascon Colour Manager, says with a youthful, uplifting and carefree energy, it promises to pack an invigorating punch when used wisely and in the right space.
She says fuchsia is often the colour of choice for the bedrooms of young teenage girls who resonate with its upbeat energy.
It is emotionally soothing, and it helps draw friendships and build confidence.
She says Emma Watson, English actress and model, known for playing Hermione Granger in Harry Potter, proves that a pop of colour is right on trend for 2013, as depicted in her latest campaign for Lancôme.
Roselt shares a few tips on how to use this trending colour in your home…
Tips and inspiration
A teenager’s room isn’t the only place that works well with a dash of pink. The energetic and uplifting qualities of this colour can be used as an accent to a dining room, lounge, entrance area, study or kitchen.
A painted chandelier or accessory is an elegant way to introduce rose into your home.
Update an old piece of furniture by painting it, or part of it, in pink.
This bright hue also gives a wonderful glow to the skin, making it a great choice for your bathroom.
What colours complement fuchsia?
Green works well with pink, which is why emerald, Pantone’s colour of the year, goes wonderfully with fuchsia.
White also shows off this shade beautifully and, red and orange are quite suitable and trendy too.
Navy blue lightens up when combined with pink and silver gives it a lustrous edge while it gives grey a lift.
Are you a fan of fuchsia?
Bright pink people are ambitious, energetic and passionate – although they tend to be slightly less extroverted than those who are more drawn to red.
Younger people who like this colour are ready to develop to their full potential. Are you?
