Feng Shui, the ancient Chinese art based on the concept of the five elements – earth, fire, metal, wood and water, attributes colors to be a very significant contributor to the emotional, physical and spiritual well being of an individual. The ideology behind the art is keeping the balance of nature intact, with the help of these five elements. While they do have other factors that help restore balance like shapes, objects, chakras and seasons; the color aspect stands to be the most powerful.
To understand the use of colors we need to understand the colors themselves and their strengths, in the context of this art.
Certain color combinations also project benefits, balancing and restoring space energies. The most common have been discussed hereunder.
While Feng Shui recommends colors based on balancing the environment with the Five Elements, there are various schools of thought within them, which may vary in thoughts and conceptions, with respect to the use of colors. However the variations are mild, with basic color concepts being the same.
For a Feng Shui home that exudes comfort, coziness, harmony and prosperity, the above colors and color combinations guide can be of great help. Note that shades that vary in terms of a few shades higher or lower than those stated here, can be considered. However exercise caution in variations!
