Many people have a different approach to selecting the colors of paint for the different areas of homes or even businesses. Most will often look to interior design themes to pick a color. Wherever you find your inspiration, all that matters in the end is if you are happy with the overall look. A method that is quickly catching on is using Feng Shui to find the right color for the target areas and we at Bill Engler Painting would like expound on how people are finding use for it for their interior painting projects.
Feng Shui Elements; Fire, Water, Earth, Metal & Wood
To remedy the alarming number of homes and business that are starved for light, the feng shui color system is preferred. With feng shui colors, there are five elements that include Fire, Water, Earth, Metal, and Wood, that correlate with each other, and with each area of the building that translates the elements and the energy that is impacted. With the right energy and the colors that are connected to them, the harmony can either inspire productive or destructive cycles and the pairing colors. Additionally, ensuring the home is in harmony will also help compliment the overall look.
Feng Shui Lucky Paint Colors
To achieve harmony in your home, apply the elements of Feng Shui and each of these elements represents specific colors. The colors and corresponding elements are as follows:
Water: Black and Blue
Fire: Purple, Pink, Red, Orange, and Bold Yellow,
Earth: Sandy-Earthy Tones, Light Yellow, and Light Brown
Wood: Brown and Green
Metal: Gray and White
The most optimal way to start is to get an understating of the color and balance the energy due to the complex nature of painting with Feng Shui colors. The rightful placement of feng shui colors is conducive with the feng shui energy map as defined by the bagua.
How to Use Feng Shui Bagua
Connected to your fame and reputation energy, the South Feng Shui Bagua area is also linked to how you project your image towards others as well as how you maintain your own identity and personal values. Look for your favorite shade of strong yellow, red, purple, pink, or orange; as they are the optimal colors for the element and corresponding energy. An example of the destructive cycle is taking the South Feng Shui bagua area, the fire element and implementing the water energy colors; blue and black. All in all, you want to avoid the destructive cycle.
