Best Feng Shui Color Choices Are Based on the 5 Elements Feng Shui Theory
In feng shui, each color is considered to be an expression of one of the 5 feng shui elements: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood.

When your choice of color is focused on strengthening and nourishing the feng shui element of the area you are decorating, this results in good feng shui energy.
This feng shui color guide will help you choose best colors to create a harmonious feng shui home. Choose the feng shui colors according to the energy you need and bring them into your space with the wall color, art, photography, or various decor items.
Water Element – Ease and Abundance
A harmonious feng shui water element will bring a refreshing energy of calm, ease, purity and freshness. Water element is also the ancient symbol of abundance, thus a potent feng shui cure for wealth. This related to the use of fountains and mirrors as wealth feng shui cures.
Water is the feng shui element of North bagua area of your home or office. East and Southeast bagua areas also benefit from a strong water element. Feng shui water element colors are:
Blue is a magnificent feng shui color. It ranges from gentle sky blue and serene blue-green color of the ocean to the deep indigo blue of the crown chakra.
In feng shui, the blue color is considered to bring the energy of calm and peace, as well as an overall sense of relaxation and healing.
According to the feng shui theory of 5 elements, the blue color is an expression of the Water feng shui element. This means there are certain areas in your home that will much benefit from this feng shui element – so you can use blue color freely in your home decor in that area. This also means that there are some areas in your home where it is best to limit a strong blue color decor scheme.
Without making it too complicated, know that feng shui-wise, blue is an excellent choice in two Bagua areas of your home or office. This is the East (Health & Family) bag and the Southeast (Wealth & Abundance) bag because the Water energy of the blue color nourishes the Wood element of these two feng shui areas. You can bring the needed blue color energy as wall color, art depicting blue, or various decor items.
The gentle blue color is an excellent feng shui choice for a home office or a child’s study, especially as a ceiling color. Several studies have shown that children performed better under the blue-colored ceiling then under the typical white color one. This makes perfect sense, doesn’t it, as a light blue color ceiling resembles the open energy of the sky! Light blue is considered the feng shui color of harmonious expansion and gentle growth, while darker blue evokes the feng shui energy of deep calm, wisdom, and serenity.
Depending on your feng shui colors priorities, you might want to introduce some deep blue elements into your bedroom to promote better sleep or a gentle, playful aqua in the living room of a big and busy family. However, keep in mind that an all-blue color bedroom – contrary to what you might read in some online resources – is not good feng shui.
Now, are there areas where it is best to avoid a strong presence of blue color? Yes, of course. Deep blue color should be used sparingly in the feng shui areas of South, Northwest and West areas of your home or office, and freely in the North, East, and Southeast. One of the most calming feng shui combinations is the combination of the blue and white color. It brings the happy energy of clear skies and crisp, fresh energy of new beginnings.
