Color Story: Fuchsia

2014 was the year of Radiant Orchid, a cool toned medium-pink that captured the fashion, decor and beauty world by storm; but today we want to give a nod to one of Radiant Orchid’s close cousins: fuchsia. Fuchsia is a bright reddish-purple that takes its name from the equally beautiful fuchsia flower. This color would look beautiful in any season because it’s vibrant enough for summer, but rich enough for winter.
