Feng Shui Colours
It is important to choose different colours for every environment of the house or office, especially if the colour contributes to diffusing positive energy. This is the case of Feng Shui colours which, used in the right places, have an incredible ability to influence the mood of anyone who lives or works there. Colours must guide the flow correctly in precise areas and rooms of the houses. The energy brings harmony and equilibrium and this is only possible with the correct use of the Feng Shui colours.
When choosing Feng Shui colours, it is crucial to refer to the five elements: Fire, Metal, Earth, Wood and Water. According to Feng Shui art, cold colours transmit the Yin whereas warm colours are linked to the Yang. In this section, you will be able to find a detailed description of every Feng Shui colour, its beneficial properties and the best area to use it.

The symbol of passion and courage, Red is linked to the element Fire. It can give an environment a great amount of energy, joy, exaltation and even sexual desire. In China, it is the colour of luck and happiness, whereas in the West it symbolises love. With its vibrations, it favours luck and a good omen. We do not recommend overusing the colour Red as it is extremely agitating and, long term, could become a source of stress.
A sunny colour which emanates happiness and is linked to Fire and the Earth. It is the colour of sunlight and lights up any environment with energy. It symbolises stability and equilibrium and is particularly suitable in the kitchen, living room or in children’s rooms. It can emanate enthusiasm and optimism, improving the ability to get on well with others.
LIGHT BLUE/DARK BLUE
Blue and its lighter shades emanate calm, peace, tranquillity and are linked to the element Water. This colour has a great ability to transmit positive chi, so it is one of the best colours to create good Feng Shui energy in the atmosphere. Its lighter shades are perfect for bedrooms and also the bathroom. In the living room, on the other hand, you should not overdo the use of the colour blue as this could make the room over passive.
Green symbolises growth and well-being and is linked to the element Wood. Green is good for the health as it emanates positive vibrations and is considered the colour of rebirth and renewal. It is linked to spring and manages to give comfort, especially if it is associated to the colour Yellow. Green emanates a very strong sense of calmness so it is the perfect colour for children’s bedrooms.
Orange is the colour of optimism and is linked both to Fire and the Earth. It is called a “social colour” thanks to its ability to create positive energy to promote reciprocal knowledge and conversation. It is a warm colour which reminds us of the summer sun: it gives vitality and stimulates social relationships. As far as the Feng Shui use of this colour is concerned, it is particularly appropriate for the dining room and living room.
Violet is a noble and mysterious colour and is linked to Metal. Those who wish to use Feng Shui in a precise manner should use Violet in moderation as it is a colour which transmits very strong vibrations. We do not recommend using it on the walls but it is perfect for accessories or decorative elements. Violet is suitable for environments where one studies, reads or meditates.
Pink is the colour of kindness and romantic love. It is linked to Metal and creates the perfect Feng Shui atmosphere as it emanates delicate vibrations with beneficial effects on one’s behaviour. The colour Pink adapts perfectly to every environment and can be used anywhere, from the bedroom, to the living room, to the bathroom
Grey is a neutral colour, linked to Metal. Grey is considered as a boring and insignificant colour but it is actually sophisticated and causes very positive Feng Shui vibrations and energy. It is perfect for work environments where one must concentrate.
Indefinite and enigmatic, Black is the colour of the night. It is a very profound colour and people who are very sensitive could feel the negative vibrations from this colour, especially if used on the walls. The use of Black on the walls is not recommended for children’s bedrooms or the bathroom.
White is the colour of innocence and freshness and is linked to Metal. The Feng Shui effects of White are notable: it emanates peace and a sense of renewal. In China it is the symbol of mourning but instead of representing pain, it symbolises the road of purification of those who leave this earth. White walls are perfect for small places with little light.
Brown is a symbol of strength and stability and is linked to the element Earth. Contrary to what one might think, Brown transmits optimal Feng Shui vibrations so it has become very popular lately. Chocolate and mahogany are the most popular shades.
