Fuchsia and Taupe

by | Bride, Wedding Inspiration


The new Martha Stewart Weddings is out and has a beautiful feature on the colour combination of fuchsia and taupe.



The taupe really makes the fuchsia pop, but it’s a little softer on the eye than fuchsia paired with white. The warm undertones give a cosy feel, but can be made cooler if paired with the right colour.



Taupe is such a lovely neutral colour that it can really work with any colour scheme:

Bolds and Brights

  • Tangerine green
  • Lime green
  • Cherry red
  • Aqua
  • Purple

Modern Moody

  • Gunmetal gray
  • Black
  • Chocolate Brown
  • Silver
  • Teal

Soft and sweet

  • White
  • Pale green
  • Pale yellow
  • Pale Pink
  • Pale Blue
