A vibrant purple red hue, fuchsia is named after the flower. Fuchsia is often confused with magenta. In fact, in the color model used on screens (RGB), the HEX codes for both fuchsia and magenta are exactly the same, rendering these differences irrelevant within digital mediums. True magenta, however, leans more toward red and true fuchsia toward purple.
Fuchsia’s bright character can make you feel youthful, cheerful, and uplifted.
Fuchsia combines wonderfully with lime, mint green, grays, and browns. For bold, attention grabbing color palettes, pair fuchsia with bright yellow, applying both in equal proportions.
