The Importance Of Your Colour Choice (The Feng Shui Way)

Colour. It has a significant impact on most of us. Numerous studies have been conducted over the years telling us what our clothing-colour choices say about us, while other studies have revealed how different colours impact us on a physiological level. For instance, did you know the colour red stimulates a faster heartbeat & breathing rate? Babies who sleep in yellow rooms cry more?

What about the rest of our homes? Followers of Feng Shui believe that colour is an instrumental factor in our daily lives affecting everything from our health to finances and so forth. Below are some Feng Shui colour basics to consider when decorating or redecorating your home:


Red: Passion, power, stimulation, and high energy. Ideal for a dining room, bedroom, or upholstery

Yellow: Cheerfulness, light-heartedness, and mental stimulation. Ideal for kitchens but not bedrooms

Green: Growth, harmony, nature, safety, peace, and healing. Ideal for a bedroom, bathroom, or office

Blue: Trust, loyalty, confidence, faith. Perfect for accents around the house and in bedrooms

Purple: Romance, luxury, nobility, wealth, spirituality, and motivation. Ideal for bedrooms

Brown: Stability, humility. Try it in the living room

White: Cleanliness, vibrancy. To be used sparingly; too much white can feel cold

Black: Power, independence. Ideal for picture frames


Now we have given you something else to contemplate while you are staring at paint swatches and debating what colour to paint that room. :)
