Pick a color...feng shui guide to colors

Did you know that each room and area of your home has a particular color preference based on feng shui? I am going to keep it simple for this short blog (no need to get complicated).

First, remember that each direction of your home is influenced by the five elements: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood.

Next, remember that each element resides in a specific direction. Below is a guide to help you choose the right color for your space.

Fire: Located in the South area of your home (can also be in the southwest and northeast of your home). Fire colors would include: Red, orange, pink, purple, strong yellow

Earth: Located in the Southwest and Northeast of your home (also located in the center of your home) Earth colors include beige, light yellow (earthy/sand colors)

Metal: Located in the West and Northwest (also located in North of your home). Metal colors include Gray and white

Water: Located in North of your home (also in East and Southeast of your home). Water colors include blue and black

Wood: Located in East and Southeast of your home (also located in the South). Wood colors include Green and Brown

Now does this mean that you paint each wall the following colors listed above based on that area of your home? Nope. Remember that the objects you use in a space also affect the feng shui and it is about balance. For example, if you have a lot of natural woodwook, this will contribute to the wood element (therefore painting the space brown would be too much wood element). The key is to find the balance of all five elements within a space. Remember that shapes of furniture also affect the element. For more on this click here. This is a great site (that I borrowed from) to help you learn more about the balance of the five elements.
Happy Painting and decorating!!
