Feng Shui Painting – Selecting Colors to Enhance Your Space

In the past week, I’ve helped two clients select paint colors for their homes. Using colors that correspond to the best Feng Shui for a room will create a harmonious feeling in the space, and help strengthen the energy.

 To do this, I first determine the Feng Shui of the house, and depending on what is needed in each room (based on the 5 feng shui elements of water, wood, fire, earth and metal) I select paint colors that correspond to each element. This floor plan shows my paint color selections for each wall:


I recommend Benjamin Moore Natura paints, which are a great Green product: odorless and zero VOCs.

Above: For rooms that need the Water element, the best color is any shade of blue.

Above: Rooms that call for Wood element should have a green tone. This can range from celery to hunter green.

Above: For rooms that can benefit from Fire, go Red. Often one red accent wall is all you need.

Above: If the room could use the Earth element, best colors are tan, brown, yellow or orange tones.

Above: When the room wants Metal, colors can be pale gold, silver, grey, or white.

Paint is the easiest way to change the feeling of a room, and a powerful way to enhance the good Feng Shui of your home.
