Feng Shui

What are Feng Shui colors?

Colors represent the elements, and correspond to different aspects of life. Linda Binns is the founder and executive director of the Feng Shui Success Institute and owner of Harmony Inside. She explains working with color in feng shui, “We work with five elements in Feng Shui. They are: fire, metal, earth, water, and wood.” Red = Fire Prosperity & Abundance, Fame & Reputation, Love & Relationships White = Metal Love & Relationships, Creativity & Children, Helpful people & Travel Yellow = Earth Health Black = Water Career & Life Path, Skills & Knowledge, Green = Wood Prosperity & Abundance, Skills & Knowledge Purple and gold also correspond with Prosperity & Abundance. Using color in feng shui is not just a matter of adding certain colors to your home or an area of your home. Balance is the key to everything in feng shui. Often colors are used to counteract or tone down elements as well as to enhance them. Linda says, “A good example would be the bathroom. In a bathroom, we have a lot of wet areas. We have the bath. We have the toilet. We have the sink. We also have a lot of drains in the bathroom.

The water represents energy; it also represents money, so the drains represent money draining away. In the five elements, black is the color that goes with water. Black is water. So we would not really want to add more black. We will not try to add a lot of black to the bathroom, because it would be bringing in more water with imbalance. That is really how we would look at color.” There are many misconceptions about color in feng shui. Linda tells us, “You will often hear about reds being used a lot in Feng Shui. People have the mistaken idea that they have to have red everywhere if they want to apply Feng Shui. You really do not. It is a very high energy color, which is why we use it a lot. For example, it is good to have a red front door. The front door is actually the most important part of the house. It is the point where energy enters into the home.

It is the symbolic point for opportunities to come into your life. So by having a red front door you are bringing high energy into that area. However, that does not mean that you have to go and paint the front door red. You can simply put some red by the door, which would achieve the same object. Some red flowers by the door, for example, or some red in a wreath on the door, or a welcome mat would work. This would bring the same energy as a red door.” Decorating trends have created some of the common color problems that Linda sees recurring in many homes, such as the all-white kitchen, “I see a lot of this in many of the new homes now. White represents metal. We need to bring in some other colors that would balance that out. If you have only white, it is too harsh.” Color is important in feng shui, but this does not mean that you have no control over color. You can use your favorite colors in your home with feng shui. Linda says, “Personal preference is the most important thing with color. From there we need to make sure everything is balanced.”
