What colour should you use in your home to bring luck? Which sexy hue will turn up the passion? Dip into the deeper meaning behind colours.
When homeowners seek help from Fengshui masters, they hope to maintain or increase positive energy, happiness and yes, definitely prosperity in their household. It can cost hundreds to thousands of dollars for a Fengshui master to customize a plan for them, depending on variables like the family members’ birthdates and using a Fengshui bagua compass.
It is said that every colour has its own unique frequency. From cheery yellow to cool blue and deep purple, colours have the instant power to transform a room. Disclaimer: Do consult a Fengshui master for a comprehensive personal review, our generic colour tips cannot be responsible for your luck nor love life!
The colour of life and nature, green represents growth, vitality and abundance. Giving good vibes like balance, healing and relaxation, this wood element is ideal for the knowledge, health and family areas of the Fengshui bagua. Also great for the bathroom since it looks fresh and peaceful.
A calming colour that radiates security, blue represents the water element and sparks inspiration, relaxation and renewal. Suitable for the knowledge, career and prosperity areas of the Fengshui bagua. Use in the bathroom for the same benefits that green offers.
The colour of the earth and wood, representing grounding and stability. Some even describe it as a “motherly colour” – perhaps in reference to Mother Earth? Use it in the knowledge segment of the fengshui bagua, and for the living room or bedroom.
The colour of lemons, daffodils and sunshine! This uplifting fire element, just like its friends orange and red, can be used in the reputation, prosperity and relationships areas of the Fengshui bagua. A happy colour suitable for spaces where people socialise, such as the living room, kitchen or dining room. Planning to paint your bedroom yellow? A paler or earthier shade like mustard works better.
Love, romance and everything sweet – no wonder pink is perfect for the love and relationships area of the Fengshui bagua. Definitely use it in your bedroom to add some sizzle between the sheets!
A favourite among royals, this noble colour represents abundance and promotes spirituality. Use it in the prosperity area of the Fengshui bagua. A pretty shade of lavender or violet in your bedroom lends a romantic and very Instagrammable touch!
This cool colour may be an industrial-chic must-have but when used incorrectly, it can ‘lack energy’ and even put a toll on one’s body. However, this metal element can be used in the knowledge, creativity and travel areas of the bagua. Use it sparingly as an accessory colour.
Sophisticated and modern, this water element is good for the helpful people, career and knowledge areas of the Fengshui bagua. Like grey, use it as an accessory colour.
The shade of innocence and openness, this metal element is great for the creativity and helpful people areas of the bagua. Use it in the bathroom as it represents cleanliness and purity!
Representing the fire element, orange is a stimulating shade useful for the reputation and relationships sections. This warm and ‘sociable’ colour is perfect for rooms where people gather, like the kitchen, dining room and living room. An earthy tone of orange in the bedroom will be ‘fiery’ enough for passion, but not too loud – unlike using red, which is another fire colour.
