The Color Fuschia!

The color fuchsia is a stylish pink that shares its name with a popular perennial of the same hue. Bright but sophisticated, this color is considered both warm and cool, making it perfect in many color pallets.It sits opposite green on the color wheel, which answers the question why fuschia pink and viridian green have gained popularity for home décor and fashion.

Fuchsia came into vogue in the twentieth century thanks to fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli. She introduced the fashion world to the color in 1937 with a collection that included a glamorous, bright pink dress and the launch of her perfume that came in fuchsia packaging and was named "Shocking!" In 1953 Marilyn Monroe brought it to the silver screen in the movies Niagara, and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes with her performance of "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend." In 2001, Pantone chose a warmer shade of the hue, Fuchsia Rose, as its color of the year. Tell Us What You Think!
