Enhancing Your Home: Incorporating Color Feng Shui
Did you know that incorporating the right colors can do wonders for your home? If you want to create or revamp your home’s color scheme, then you might want to consider taking it to the next level with feng shui, where each color not only enhances your desired energies but brings balance and harmony to your home as well. From vivid red to calming aqua blue, find out which color is best for your home.
The color red is the strongest representation of the fire element. It brings energy, excitement, joy. Red is also said to be a lucky color across cultures. It is best to use in the dining room where it can aid digestion and bring a sense of awakening.
Always associated with happiness, the color yellow will surely bring happiness to any space. The color also creates a feeling of coziness and health so it can also be a good choice in children’s rooms. But since the color also elevates mental awareness, it can also be a good color choice for your home office space (as it is said to alleviate headaches).
Blue is my favorite color because for me, it represents tranquility, peace, and calmness. It represents the water element in feng shui. Since blue comes in a number of shades, you can choose any shade as it is known to give off free flowing energy, contemplation, tranquility, and a sense of concentration. You can use blue in your bathroom to give that feeling of calm.
Often associated with wealth, it also signifies balance and growth. Just like yellow, it’s a good color to use in the kitchen since it’s also nourishing to one’s health. Not only does it bring a sense of fresh energy, it also brings nature vibration to our bodies. When using the color green in your home, try to incorporate various shades of green as it maximizes the feng shui energy effects.
The color has long been seen as noble and mysterious. It’s often associated with royalty as it symbolizes prosperity. Purple also represents the fire element, since the color brings very high vibration. It’s best to use the color in moderation. Consider using decors or a pillow in the color purple instead of going for a full blast wall color. Since the color is healing, it is best used in meditation or healing spaces.
Ever wondered why you feel deeply satisfied in a white space? It’s because it contains all the colors. White is associated with purity, innocence, and freshness. It is also a color representing the metal element. If you have spaces dedicated for creativity in your home, you can use this color to spark clarity.
If you feel that the color red is too strong for your home but you still want to reap the benefits of the fire element, you can go for the color orange instead. It creates the necessary feng shui energy to bring good times and stimulate lively conversations in your home.
If you can’t decide if you’re going for black or white, you can go the color in between, which is gray. Not only the color itself is sophisticated, giving off a precise character, it also helps eliminate distractions. Gray represents the metal element. It’s best used as an accent color, providing beautiful centering energy to your home.
There are many colors to choose from depending on your needs. Not only do these colors provide sophistication to your home, it will also help balance and restore the energy in your living space.
