Colour Palettes

Fuchsia is a versatile colour choice as it sits comfortably alongside both bold and neutral colour palettes.

A selection of plain or patterned fuchsia cushions will add a ‘colour pop’ to a plain white sofa for a chic minimal feel.

Upholstery

A colourful choice of upholstery can transform an entire interior space without the need for extensive redecoration. You can choose bold and modern patterns for a funky and contemporary feel or choose classic Rococo prints or traditional floral designs for a more subtle splash of colour on your chairs, curtains and bedding. Opt for a bold pair of curtains, a single sofa or pair of statement occasional chairs that will take centrestage in an interior space and will centralise and zone your chosen Fuchsia hue.
