If you adore neutral and minimalistic designs, you probably think that the color fuchsia is too bold. It’s true, fuchsia’s vibrant appearance commands attention, and you probably wouldn’t want to create a monochromatic space with just this hue (can you imagine?). However, there are plenty of ways to decorate with this eye-catching shade that won’t feel overwhelming.

Originating from the vivid plant, fuchsia can either have purple or pink undertones, but generally, it’s described as deep pink, per Decoist. This color is great for daring maximalists, as it will make a huge statement and pair well with other electrifying colors. However, even if you have a primarily neutral home, this accent shade could still be used to subtly enliven. While a risky choice, it will always work to brighten and invigorate.

Whether you’re going for playful or sophisticated vibes, this vibrant tone could be added to your home. Below are 40 of the easiest ways to add fuchsia decorations to any room.

1. Start with the inspiration itself
