If you don’t know much about Feng Shui and would like to know more, learning about the colors in Feng Shui is a good starting point.

Color is used as the basis for many theories and in Feng Shui, colors affect the energy of rooms, your habitat and your clothes.

Colors are one of the most essential and significant features of Feng Shui.

Please take a read through this short introduction to colors in Feng Shui and afterwards you can let me know if you have been inspired to learn more about the practice and adopt it for yourself.

And in case you’re wondering exactly what Feng Shui is, a definition is "A system of laws considered to govern spatial arrangement and orientation in relation to the flow of energy (qi)."

1. Red

dining room, room, red, property, living room,

It’s no surprise that in the colors of Feng Shui, red is one of the most important what with Feng Shui being an eastern philosophy.2

Red is intense, represents the element of fire and is considered lucky.

It is hot and bold and daring.

It should be used in small amounts to direct energy to specific areas around the home where other elements of Feng Shui feature.

It is to be avoided by people who are anxious or overactive and is certainly not a good color in the bedroom for insomniacs.

2. Blue

blue, room, interior design, furniture, curtain,

In Feng Shui, blue is the counterbalance to red.

Blue is the calm to red’s flame.

It represents the sky and the ocean and the spirituality of openness.

Blue signifies peace, calm and truth, and is usually the favorite color of spiritually–attuned people.

The “wrong” shades of blue can also create a sense of vastness and are to be avoided if depressed.2

3. Black

black, white, black and white, room, living room,

When you open up your closet how much black do you see?

We really couldn’t exist without black in our wardrobe could we?

But in the meaning of colors in Feng Shui, black is not so great.

Black is considered to be introspective and representative of the void.

Black is mysterious, hidden, secret and protective – the opposite of the tenet of openness, one of the cornerstones of Feng Shui.

Black is not a color to choose when you want to feel uplifted or you have the need to express yourself.
