Choosing Feng Shui Colors

If you want to choose the proper Feng Shui Colors first you have to learn about the most common mistakes people make, then make the right choices.

Most Common Mistakes People Make when Choosing Feng Shui Colors

There is a lot of confusion regarding the use of Feng Shui colors. With so much contradicting information it’s hard to know what to do. Who should you trust?

More importantly, you want your home to look good. Much of the advice on Feng Shui colors you will find out there will end up producing bizarre color combinations. If you follow such advice, your home will plainly look weird, instead of harmonious and beautiful.

Let’s explore here some of the information you may have come across before which would not help you turn your home into a dream home.

Mistake No. 1 – Painting Walls According to the Magnetic Compass

Don’t paint your walls by which direction they face.

I have seen many people try to paint their walls like this:

  • south in red
  • east in green
  • west in white/gray
  • north in black or navy blue

This will produce very weird color combinations.

Mistake No. 2 – Painting Walls According to the Colors of the Bagua Map

Don’t paint your walls by the location of the room in the bagua map.

Many people think that by painting the whole room in the color that corresponds to the bagua map will help them enhance the life area. They’ll paint the room at the back left in purple, and the room at the back right in hot pink.

First of all, painting a whole room in the color of the life area won’t necessarily help that life area.

Second, you can easily end up with colors that look really bad for the purpose of the room.

Imagine a purple home office or a pink kitchen – not good.

Mistake No. 3 – Painting Walls According to Your Year of Birth or Gua Numbers

Don’t paint your walls according to your gua number.

In the schools of Feng Shui that rely on the magnetic compass they’ll often recommend for a person’s room the color that corresponds to the element of their year of birth or their “gua number.”

So for example, if a person’s element is earth, they would tell them to paint their bedroom in yellow. But what if that person hates yellow?

They might tell a person with water as the element of their year of birth to paint their bedroom in black or navy blue. Can you imagine what that can do to a person’s mood?

Mistake No. 4 – Choosing Your Feng Shui Colors by Using the Nurturing Cycle of the Elements from Floor to Ceiling

feng shui color mistake 4
Don’t paint your walls using the five elements from floor to ceiling.

Followers of the Black Hat or Black Sect school of Feng Shui will tell you to choose your colors by starting with the color of your floor and then choosing the next element in the nurturing cycle arrangement of the five elements and then applying to the ceiling color the color of the element that follows.

So if your floors are brown (earth) they’ll say to paint your walls in gray or white (metal) and your ceiling in black or navy blue (water).

Mistake No. 5 – Being Stubborn About Colors that Are Not Good for You

If a color isn’t good for you, don’t use it!

Some colors are good for certain rooms in the home and some colors are not. Navy blue is a bad choice for a master bedroom, no matter how much you like it. Red is a very bad color for a kitchen (unless you need to gain weight). Stubbornly becoming attached to a color you like or have previously thought was good can end up hurting your mood and your luck.

How to Choose the Right Feng Shui Colors

The right way to choose Feng Shui colors is to:

  • choose the elements that are best for the function of the room (what happens there),
  • while paying attention to the location of the room in the bagua map,
  • while staying in tune with the color preferences of the occupants of a home.

The colors of a home are NOT Feng-Shui-Correct unless the result is breathtakingly gorgeous and harmonious.
