The design goal for the master bedroom: Create a dramatic, warm room where husband and wife can both relax. Gray is a sophisticated neutral choice for the space, accented by whites and unexpected pops of fuchsia.
Lush plantings along the perimeter frame water views, creating a lovely spot for dining alfresco on this rooftop patio. The tall, twisting stems are the aerial roots of liana trees, native to northern Thailand. Other plant varieties include agave attenuata, echeveria, aeonium and fuchsia, each carefully chosen to thrive in the unusual setting and enhance the space's striking design.
Partial walls create the feeling of a separate and somewhat private sleeping space in this open studio apartment. Jewel-toned bedding atop a fuchsia platform bed adds a refreshing splash of color to the all-white space.
Four cream-colored window panels are separately pulled open, letting in sunlight that illuminates a dazzling red and white bedroom. A white bench window seat is decorated with a pair of red and pink pillows, while fuchsia-flocked damask wall covering completes the elegant look.
A gorgeous wall tapestry featuring fuchsia and burgundy flowers sets a colorful backdrop for the mix of patterns and rich hues in this eclectic living room. A mustard yellow sofa is decorated with a collection of throw pillows. A pair of chairs with deep red cushions surround a clear coffee table over the faded rug.
Plum, fuchsia and black may not be at the top of every manly man's favorite color list, but when properly balanced the outcome is just as well suited to Jack as it is Jill. The key to mixing these colors correctly is to vary the intensities of the pinks and purples, then use black to break up the two similar hues.
In this New York bedroom, the designer's goal was to create a space well-suited for a young child but flexible enough to grow with her into her teens. Weitzner wallpaper is a fun yet subtle backdrop for lilac and fuchsia fabrics. Bold pillows atop the Rogers & Goffigon bedding tie in with a chevron-patterned pouf in the room's cozy sitting nook.
"The wall divider with a built-in curve serves wonderfully well as both sculpture and room divider," says HGTV Design Star judge Vern Yip. "The ingenious employment of fabric over stretchers showcases how to easily create a one-of-a-kind headboard of impressive magnitude, and the complete control of a fuchsia and gray color palette is a perfect solution for a small space that demands an injection of something bold."
In the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014 Powder Room and Lounge, designer Kristi Will interpreted the timeless glamor of San Francisco decor from the past with a rich and crisp modern touch. The lounge chair embedded in the wall boasts a bright fuchsia color and unique shape. Neutral walls and drapes allow the fuchsia accents to steal the show.
Fashion accessories from the homeowner's own wardrobe and framed playbills from her favorite shows create cool artwork in this fun and eclectic home office. Meanwhile, a fuchsia chaise creates a great spot for perching with a cup of coffee, glass of wine or a great book. Modern lighting is the jewelry of the space.
