The Lucky Colors for Home In Feng Shui
Background of Feng Shui
Based on the Chinese culture that has been around for centuries, this method has you using yourself and your feelings as the basis for decorating your house. If you want to be a successful businesswoman, then your home has to be the house of a successful businesswoman. Each room in your house has its own life or form of energy. The Feng Shui design method says you need to find that energy and decorate your home. The Feng Shui colors for a home you choose are based on the color and elemental guide for Feng Shui.
Feng Shui is based on your house’s Bagua. It would be best to map out your home and how you want it to look when it is completed. Do you have an office? Where is the office located? What do you want in your home office? What equipment do you want in your home office? Is it a central location in your house or a side office? All of these are important. But an essential element in your home is color.
Positive Energy Feng Shui Colors For The Home
#1. Choosing The Color
What colors do you want in your home office? What colors do you want in your bedroom, living room, kitchen, etc.? You can determine all of these in a variety of methods.
Some say to look at your birth sign in Feng Shui. This will then lead you to your element. There are five elements in Feng Shui. Those five elements are Wood, Metal, Earth, fire, and Water.
You use those five elements to figure out what types of colors or designs you may like. Then go further to the colors that are like in each respective room. And then you decorate your house. This includes the exterior paint of the home.
#2. How to Choose Your Feng Shui House Color
Here is my question – who is in your head? Do you consider yourself a good judge of what you like, or do you defer to other people around you? Decorating in Feng Shui is all about you. What you want – what you desire and where you want to be in the future.
Feng Shui is controlled by five elements and by eight directions. Wood, Metal, Earth, fire, and Water are five elements. The eight directions are North, North East, East, West, North West, South, South East, South West, and the Earth Center.
Each of those elements and directions corresponds to a color. That means that the North, signified by the element water, is also indicated by the colors blue, black, white, and gray. The direction the element Fire represents, South, is also signified by the colors red, green, brown, purple, and magenta.
Wood signifies East, and the colors are green, brown, blue, black, and earthy. Metal represents the west, and the colors are white, gold (earthy), and silver. The four primary directions are North, South, East, and West.
Since sometimes your homes may face westerly or easterly directions, Feng Shui breaks it down even further. If you are in the Northwest, your element is Metal, and the corresponding colors are white, gold (earthy), and silver.
If you are in the Northeast, your element is Earthy, and your colors are brown, yellow, and pink. Your direction is southwest, your element is Earth, and your colors are brown, pink, and yellow.
If you are in the Southeast, your element is Wood, and your colors are green, brown, blue, black, and earthy (gold).
But the concept of Feng Shui in your house goes further than that. Not only do the directions and colors combine to make your home livable based on your personality and concept, but each of those directions also corresponds to a state of being.
For instance, if you live in the North section of your house, your office, or your bedroom, it also signifies career luck. If you live in the Northeast section of your home, it represents education and luck. But this you don’t need to know about right now.
#4. Color Guide
We are currently concerned with the best color for your home in Feng Shui.
As you can see, each color is represented in the model below and mentioned above. Below is the color guide furthering the importance of colors used in a house designed in Feng Shui method. Now let us create your home. To help you decide to decorate your house, I picture the color guide for Feng Shui.
#5. Significance Of Each Colour
Each color means something different.
Red: power, stimulator
Orange: promotes happiness
Yellow/gold: stimulates health, patience, and wisdom; symbolizes power.
Green: represents growth and new beginnings as well as healing and freshness.
Blue greens: represent youth and beginning, and inspire confidence.
Deeper Blues: wisdom and introspection; also represents mourning.
Purple: inspires spirituality, adventure, and prosperity
Black: contemplative color that encourages reflection and mystery.
White: cultivates clarity; precision, and communication
Grey invites helpfulness and represents a harmonious union of black and white.
Brown: offers stability and security
Pink: love, romance, and partnership.
As you can see, color plays an integral part in how you decorate your house, both on the exterior and interior of your home. So what is the best color for your house? The reason behind this elaborate yet fundamental way of seeing the house is determined by direction and element. The colors are what modify the concept of direction and element. This is Feng Shui in a nutshell.
Your house sits on the North section of a piece of land, and your bedroom is in the North section of the house. Is it directly North, or is it Northwest or Northeast? This will all help you in determining your color. Based on the model described above, your element is Water, which means that your bedroom is in the North section of the house.
#6. Choosing The Colour For Each Room
The best colors for your bedroom could be blue, black, gray, or white. But since you have the whole house to decorate, it is good not to have too many colors in your home. But they should all complement each other. For example, you choose to have a blue bedroom.
Based on that, do you want the rest of your house to be blue walls, or do you want the other rooms to be offset by the color? Your rooms don’t have to be the same color, but they should be complementary to the whole color scheme of your house.
Remember that just because your house is in the North section doesn’t mean you have to choose one color. But you can have a white ceiling with blue walls or a gray roof with white walls.
That is the interior of the house. If you wanted to decorate your living room and your living room is in the Northeast part of the house, then you would use the colors brown, yellow, and pink or a version thereof. Hence you color your home along those lines.
And each of the colors would correspond to the direction of the house the room is in and the corresponding elemental colors.
#7. Exterior Of the House
The house’s exterior on the North lot can also be any of those colors. Do you want just one color outside your home or two colors? I suggest one color personally, but that is my own opinion. You could say differently. Blue is a lovely outside color, or gray. And that is a good color for a house in the North section of your property.
In summary, the concept of Feng Shui is a mesh of ideas that state that the direction that your house lies in, along with the elements that respond to that, directly determines the color of your home and modifies the energy of the room, which signifies you the person who owns the house.
