Color Magic: Magenta

Elle Decor

MAGENTA better known as hot pink is a joyous, sexy and energetic color. People who like magenta are innately optimistic and tend to have a balanced outlook on life. When used in interior spaces magenta can be jarring at first, but once the eye has adjusted magenta can add a beauty and cheerfulness unlike any other color.

Women who wear magenta exude a confidence and magnetism that men find alluring.

Pantone Process Magenta C

I prefer a rich hot pink similar to Pantone Process Magenta C. Magenta is gorgeous paired with black, navy, green, brown, orange and metallic gold or silver.

For inspiration here are beautiful examples courtesy of interior designers Kelly Wearstler, Amanda Nisbet and others where bold shades of magenta created lively showstopping rooms. So, the next time you need to energize a stale space or spark a bit of excitement, why not try a spot of magenta?
