A Feng Shui Colour Guide to
Transform your Home

Try experimenting with a combination of colours to bring in a sense of harmony and positive energy.

Feng Shui, the ancient Chinese art based on the concept of the five elements – earth, fire, metal, wood and water, attributes colours 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 colour aspect stands to be the most powerful.

The Colourful Charm

To understand the use of colours we need to understand the colours themselves and their strengths, in the context of this art.

Blue - Playful

While Black imbibes water energy, aid concentration, meditation, contemplation, support inner strength and facilitate creativity; Blue embodies calmness, coolness and privacy.

Green - Serenity

The energy that aids growth, motivation, action and decision making can be found through the colour Green.

Red - Edgy

The colour of blood – Red, depicts fire, life, passion, love and activity, relieving depression and elevating adrenaline rushes.

Yellow - Cheerful

Gold or Yellow essentially emanates earthy energy, inducing stability, concentration, sense of nurturing and calmness. It nurtures hope and brings cheer.

Metallic - Dramatic

Metallic colours like White and its variants personify focus, purity, carefulness and help soothe minds.

Colour Match for a Statement Look

Certain colour combinations also project benefits, balancing and restoring space energies. The most common have been discussed hereunder.

Earthy Essence

Combination of Orange with Red or Yellow helps balance the fire and earth elements bringing about harmony within spaces. Referred to as Salmon, this combination encourages attention, abundance and conversation.

Aqua Wonders

A Blue and Green combination or Turquoise to be more specific, imbibes in it, the qualities of the elements water and wood. Bringing in the qualities of both the colours they enhance growth and progress.

Tranquility Zone

The duo of Purple and Blue (Lavender) represent spirituality, calmness, peace and contemplation. Minimizing high activity, soothing down a stressful situation or creating a spiritual ambiance can be best done with this colour combination.

While Feng Shui recommends colours 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 colours. However the variations are mild, with basic colour concepts being the same.
For a Feng Shui home that exudes comfort, coziness, harmony and prosperity, the above colours and colour 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!
