Talking Colour & Feng Shui!
I love colour and here are some tips on how to use it in your home while incorporating Feng Shui to ensure you get the best out of each colour
Colour is an important aspect of interior spaces and it helps to invite health and wealth while also creating balance and harmony. The right colour choices not only enhance the design, decor and style of your home but they can also create meaning.
Colour Feng Shui is made up of five key elements; Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood. Each of these five elements rule a specific area of your home and every colour is linked to one of the elements.
Yellow: All shades of yellow symbolize harmony, positive changes and success. Yellow also has the ability to stimulate the brain, enhance creative growth and improve thinking and problem solving. (Great for an office or studio space!) Wall paint, wallpaper and styling items in yellow shades bring sunshine and energy, which warms spaces and creates happy moods. Just remember to think of nature, where yellows are muted and softened, muddied and dirty, not synthetic man made colour.
Green: Currently one of the most popular decorating colours, green symbolizes nature and is the Feng Shui colour of fresh energy, and regeneration. Green is nourishing to your health as it balances the whole body by bringing healing. When working with green it is important to use at least several different shades of green to maximize its energy effects.
Pink: Pink is the universal colour of love, which makes it a perfect Feng Shui colour to soften the energy in your home. The calming and delicate colours of pink are proven to have soothing effects on our behaviour and feelings. The deeper the pink, the more passion and energy it radiates. You can use this beautiful colour almost anywhere in your home.
