Color is amazing.
From its psychological effects to the ways it can be used to manipulate images, color has a way of passing through the eyes, triggering the brain and releasing feelings from across the spectrum.
According to ColorMatters.com, color harmony can be defined as, “A pleasing arrangement of parts, whether it be music, poetry, color or even an ice cream sundae.” As interior designers, we use the color wheel to push boundaries, harmonize and create contrast. I ventured to Las Vegas on the search for new accessories at the World Market. Little did I know that during my stay at the Wynn Encore would I be struck with color inspiration in the shade of fuchsia.
Immediately my thoughts wandered to neutral environments infused with bold colors such as fuchsia against browns and tans. I adore the combination of brown and fuchsia in the lighting and on the carousel.
The color wheel exists to provide some guidance on “what works.” My challenge is always to break the boundaries and see what happens. What other colors would you try pairing with fuchsia?
