Feng Shui & bedroom colors

KNOW-HOW

Feng Shui is a practical and theoretical system alleging the inevitable influence of space over human lives. Certain choices in relation to architecture and interior design can promote healthy living, good mood and luck or completely opposite. As for the bedroom, the important thing is to create a relaxing and calming space than will help you and your mate sleep easily and deeply. It is also important the overall atmosphere of the bedroom to favor couple’s sexual life.

Which colors are considered suitable for the bedroom according to Feng Shui.

Skin colors: In general, natural and earth colors are considered by feng shui positive and favorable. Light, skin colors, such as white, beige and light brown are ideal for bedroom decoration where a relaxing atmosphere with little or no disturbance is the main concern. On the other hand, darker tones such as chocolate and brown are related to earth and soil and so they symbolize safety and stability. So if you have problems of self esteem of other fears try to use earth tones in large surfaces such as walls and flooring. These tones can make a room look like a safe refuge. Dark earth tones can also be used to accent some details. For example you can create a neutral beige background and opt for dark brown curtains of for a chocolate bed cover or for a dark brown carpet. Remember also that dark curtains offer extra sun protection which is important if you are a rather late waker.

White color: White color and its similar tones symbolize purity and kindness and it is probably the most powerful Feng Shui color. Silver and gold tend to intensify the power and influence of white color. However, if you think white is boring and too minimal for your tastes, opt for more warm tones such as sugar white and light beige.

Black color: Black in western culture symbolizes maturity and prestige and in some cases mourning. However feng shui thinks that black color symbolizes money. So, if you are asking for the positive influence that will bring money to your life then do not hesitate: Bring black into your bedroom. The power of black becomes stronger if you combine it with metal objects. This makes things much easier. You can pick for example a black table light with silver base or a black drawer with bronze handles.

Purlpe and blue tones: These colors promote physical and emotional healing and increase your spirituality. Blue tones are relaxing and positive. Purple tones are both warm and calming while they associate with luxury and rareness.

Orange and Red tones: Orange inspires people and motivates them to be more creative and original. They also help them to be more organized and efficient. Red tones bring good luck and encourage trust and familiarity between husband and wife.

Green tones: Green is the color of rebirth and nature and in bedroom will bring harmony and balance. Ideally, you can opt for a green rug or a green bed cover.

Which colors to avoid in bedroom: The only color you should avoid bringing in bedroom is yellow. Yellow offers energy but is too intense and might cause stress and tension between the couple. Of course in feng shui there is no bad color. Yellow promotes communication and friendship and it is a good choice for the living room, dining room and kitchen and wherever you like to hang out with family and friends.
