Are you willing to change the colors in your house using feng shui as your guide? According to the feng shui principles, these colors will help increase your energy and have a healthier life. Feng shui is the eastern practice of the analysis of where things should be in order to create the healthiest and most beneficial energy flow, and the usage of colors is also an important component of the practice.
For example if strong, hot colors like red are dominant in a room, it might make you feel tired or angry. In order to bring the heat down, you can add some accessories in cool colors, like blue candles and pillows. Sometimes when you aim for a relaxing room, you might find yourself using too much ice blue, that will make the room uninviting and cold. So you might want to find a little bit of equilibrium. So here’s some basic information on the 5 elements of feng shui and the associated colours that elicit certain types of energies in your house:
