Color Time - Benjamin Moore Royal Fuchsia

With Pantone selecting Honeysuckle as their color for 2011 it seems as if pink is popping up everywhere! With a ridiculous amount of shades out there this is one of my favorites. It could be the strong take charge tone of it or the way the designer has paired it with sharp white as a way to tone it down, regardless this is a pink I could live with!

What do you say, would you use this pink in your home?

**Note: The above room is the actual paint color not just a resemblance of the color. As you can see above, the paint chip sample online looks different than what is in the actual room photo. When choosing paint for your own home never go by what you see online, the color will always be a tad different. I suggest picking up a small paint sample at the store and paint a color swatch in the actual room, than you will never be disappointed!

LOVE it for accents, but its a *bit* overwhelming as an entire room.

I have a pink and aqua guest room. I wouldn't want to look at that bright of a color all day, every day, but I love it when I walk by my guest room and it's so bright and happy!

I love fuschia and pink! perfect for a punch of fun-- definitely a color for the sparky spirited.

No matter how hard I try, I do not think I could do pink in New England. Florida, Bermuda, southern California sure, but I just can't see it in New England. Someone please prove me wrong!

Wowza, that's one bright room. I think I would add accents of honeysuckle instead of painting an entire room that color. But I'm a neutrals girl :)

Not in my family home.. If I was swinging single in a cool bachelorette flat - no probs - but I can't see it in a family space..

Rocio I can't remember where it is from maybe it is a Thomas Paul rug? I would search Rugs USA or Payless Rugs!
