Feng Shui Colours For The New Year! (Part 1)
By Stephanie & Joras
We all have our favourite colours and we tend to make choices based on colours. In feng shui, colours represent deeper meaning and using the right colour does wonders for your homes. If your home is filled with fiery colours that over-stimulate the mind, it is best to tone it down with soothing colours. Too much fiery colours pressure the mind and too much soothing colours may look distantly cold. Here are some tips to achieve the perfect colour balance for your homes. Which element are you lacking?
Red – Fire Element (Love, Passion, Courage)
Red is the colour of fortune, luck and happiness. It brings energy, joy and excitement to homes. However, too much red will cause agitation, annoyance and over-stimulate minds. It is better to use
red for decorative accessories rather than for walls, floors and furnitures. As red represents the fire element, it is best to use red in the south direction of your home.
Other “fire” colour(s) – Orange, purple, pink
红色- 火元素 （爱，热情，勇气）
Green – Wood Element (Fresh energy, New Hope, Growth, Health)
Green is the colour of healing and new hope. It balances the energy of your home and bring good feng shui from nature. It is best to use green plants to bring the wood element to your home. Plants act as an air purifier as well, killing two birds with one stone. As green represents the wood element, it is best to use green in the east and southeast directions of your home.
