Feng shui is an ancient Eastern practice of arranging items in such a way as to create the maximum healthy and positive flow of energy. Although it has been around for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years, fengshui has become a more desirable methodology for interior design in recent years, and all over the globe. The use of fengshui colors in your home and décor will definitely affect the energy throughout your space, so it is important to choose those colors, and their use, with care.
Crystals are the powerhouses of good feng shui energy; they bring the essence of abundance from deep within the earth. If you are new to crystals, start with clear quartz, preferably in a rough/natural shape. Along with the clear quartz, there are 3 more crystals that can help you attract the energy of wealth: pyrite, citrine and amethyst. Pyrite is excellent as a wealth feng shui magnet, and reasonably easy to find and well priced. Genuine citrine tends to be pricey and a bit hard to find;  amethyst is easy to find, works very well on many levels, including purifying the energy in your home. If there are no crystal shops close to where you live, check our online selection of feng shui crystals (our store is powered by amazon.com).
Feng shui yellow is happy, nourishing, and hopeful. Depending on which direction your yellow tint or tone is headed, yellow is part of the fire or earth element in fengshui. Earth energy yellows are more than just sunshiney globs of smiles, though. Yellow provides a sweet infusion of cheer, hope, clarity, and creativity. The fengshui color aids in mental acuity while providing stability and nurturing vibes.
Ok, let’s move on to specific feng shui wealth essentials. The main feng shui wealth color is gold, gold, gold (of course!)  In any decor items – mirrors,  frames, lamp bases, trays, coffee tables, etc – whatever your house decor can feel harmonious and happy with! Just be sure to actually love those golden beauties, do not bring something just for the sake of its look if you are not connected to it emotionally.
New seasons call for a refresh in décor, so why not make the most of it by planning out a color scheme that channels the energy you wish to bring into each room? Whether it's bringing forth a soothing sense of calm to allow for relaxation or igniting drive to inspire your career goals, feng shui colors will help you find harmony between your home and your lifestyle. Keep scrolling to learn about each feng shui color and channel the best energy in your home.
Many people live in homes where they drive up into the garage and use the back door to get in. While this is very convenient, from a Feng Shui perspective this may limit good energy and opportunities in your life because again, the entry door represents how chi enters your home and life. The easy Feng Shui fix? Start using the front door at least once week. The more often the better! Just open and close it when you go get the mail, or maybe to take walk. Write it into your regular routine.
As a rule of (green!) thumb, in feng shui we generally prefer plants with soft and rounded leaves. This shape offers a softer and gentler energy. Plants with sharp leaves, thorns, or spiky needles are best avoided for feng shui applications. That said, there are absolutely situations that they may be appropriate for. And if you already have such plants in your home this does not mean you need to remove them. For example, maybe you have a great attachment to a cactus that you received from your grandmother years ago. But in general if you want to add a plant into your home with a feng shui intention, go for something less prickly.

When we look to feng shui to create a healthy environment and to cultivate the right energy in our home, we often only consider layout and furniture placement. But there are much more ways feng shui can help shape the look and feel of your home. One of the easiest ways to transform your home's energy—without moving a single piece of furniture—is through color. In feng shui, there are five elements that are expressed through color. Working these feng shui color palettes into your home will help set the intention of the space and draw in those specific lines of energy.


So, there you have it, the basic feng shui color guide to help you create a happy and healthy home. Color is like music, nourishing and uplifting, and the more colors you harmoniously absorb throughout the day, the higher your sense of well-being. Do not be afraid to bring vibrant colors into your space, as color is light, and light is our number one nutrient.

Green is the fengshui representation of life, health, and growth. Green is part of the wood element family of colors. Found all throughout nature, green associates with growth, with its inherent motivation and action toward positive change. In fengshui, green is used to represent renewal, freshness, and rejuvenating energy. Balance is achieved – a key component of successful fengshui – with green’s deep-rooted place in the natural world.
Good feng shui decorating will never scream for attention or fight with the style of the home, but rather create an energy that is vibrant, happy and harmoniously complimenting the already present identity of the home (or office). You can have excellent feng shui decor in any style, because in a nutshell, feng shui decorating means you know exactly which colors, shapes, images and specific decor items to use in specific areas of a home. You can do that in any style and in any space without disturbing the visual energy of the space (or the aesthetic taste of homeowners!)
When you see the homes of wealthy people, the number one thing that you actually see is open space. An abundance of open space. Strange, no? Rarely do you see wealthy houses full to the brim with all sorts of stuff. It is the luxury of open space and plenty of breathing room that attracts more wealth energy. In feng shui terms this basically means there is open space to allow more and to enjoy more. To create more, explore more and be more.
As a feng shui consultant, I often hear stories from clients where sudden changes occur as soon as they move into a new space. Even if not familiar with feng shui, they can sense the direct relationship with something about the house affecting their luck, so to speak. The feng shui of the homes we choose to live in play an important role in our destiny while living there. The good news is that these imbalances can usually be remedied through feng shui. The five elements can be used as a remedy or a preventative medicine tool for you and your home. As you balance the five elements within a space, its occupants will receive the benefits. The healthier the feng shui of your home, the healthier you’ll be too.
Each week I go to the grocery store. I come home and place my grocery bags on the counter. Before unloading them, I clean out anything in the refrigerator that is no longer edible either because it has gone bad or I know I’m not going to eat it. I then move the existing items around so that there is some organization among what is left. And then I place my new, fresh grocery items in the refrigerator.
No matter you decorate your home with art made from an inspiring postcard or purchased from an expensive gallery, feng shui looks at your choice of art through the eyes of the bagua. Also called the energy map of your home, the bagua has specific needs that can be either nurtured or neglected with specific art. There are two factors to look at when choosing to decorate your home with good feng shui art:
Air Purifying Plants: They are Feng Shui elements that you can cage in your home or office to build wealth. These plants remove the negativity that is present within your home. You will see that they also remove the pollutants in the home thus purifying the air. If kept in your home, they also intend to bring in peace, harmony and prosperity. Try having these elements.
The water element is all about wealth, abundance, and fluidity. Lately I’ve found myself yearning for a decorative fountain to add in the corner of my bedroom – I realize now that I’ve probably been subconsciously feeling a lack of presence of the water element in my decor. Until I find that perfect fountain, I’m decorating with mirrors, as well as a bowl filled with water. I love the bowl idea because I can change the way it’s decorated every day – adding things like floating candles or beautiful petals that have fallen to the ground. Fluid shapes, as well as the colors blue and black, are another way to incorporate the water element into your décor. This element is most welcomed in the North, East, and Southeast bagua areas.
EAST AND SOUTH EAST-  Use water or wood colors in the south east it enhances your wealth and accumulation of assets so that your net worth grows. It also ensures that you dont get poorer over the years. In the East the wood element enhances your health and longevity. This makes you full of vigor, vitality and you have a healthy body, mind and spirit.
The Goldon Pothos is said to be particularly good for removing formaldehyde and carbon monoxide. I like to recommend this to plant to the houseplant novice. It’s great for dead corners and areas above cabinets or shelves. In feng shui, these types of locations in your home attract and easily collect stagnant and dead energy. Because the Golden Pothos is easy to care for and low light, it’s perfect in these places. The plant will stay green, can be slightly neglected but still bring life energy to that area.

Feng Shui is considered to provide luck and wealth in abundance. It is said that if you follow the Feng Shui method of decorating or constructing your home, you will never attract ill luck and any negative energy. Most of the Feng Shui elements are concerned with positivity and vibrant energy. Even colors of Feng Shui are known to represent wealth and money in some form. There are some Feng Shui elements known to possess energy and positivity and will bring luck with them. Here are few elements that you can choose to keep in your home/office.
Another example is blending the yang energy of a lit candle with the yin energy of a dimly lit room. There is a reason these stereotypical decorating touches work. They balance yin and yang energy and the five elements, bringing the feng shui of your house into balance. Now that you have an understanding of how the five elements show up in indoor and outdoor spaces, you can be your own decorator. When furniture shopping you will recognize the energetic differences between shapes, colors, and finishes in terms of the five elements. For example, if you have a predominance of Metal elements in your dining room, you may opt for a wood table to balance the room, or, vice versa, if there is a predominance of Wood elements.
One of the least expensive ways to give your home new life is a fresh coat of paint. Even those who live in apartments can often convince their landlord to let them paint, as long as they return the walls to plain white before they leave. The investment is minimal -- less than $80 buys three gallons of paint, rollers and brushes to do a few rooms.
Feng shui for wealth is one of the most popular applications of feng shui.  The focus on attracting material wealth is actually one of the reasons feng shui became so popular in the West, since we’ve heard about many business tycoons using feng shui for more profits and stronger financial security. Of course, there is much more to feng shui than its wealth building appeal! You can use feng shui to create a better quality of life, improve your health, attract more harmony to your relationships, help build a successful career, etc.

One thing you never want to place in a dining room is a clock. The presence of a clock in this room means you could run out of abundance as the clock ticks away or winds down. Some feng shui practitioners believe a clock in the dining room will lead to a rushed meal and be unhealthy. There are several other rooms where you can place a clock in your home.


Use money plants to purify the air in your home. Money plants – also known as philodendron scandens – are believed to attract energy that encourages abundance. They are a common indoor feng shui tree. They can grow in dark corners as long as you keep the tree’s soil moisturized. They also have the added benefit of purifying the air in your home.[10]
The most common tool in feng shui home design is the bagua map. The bagua map helps analyze energy in a given space, and suggests what elements to bring into the space to enhance the flow. Each of the nine quadrants on the bagua map has an element and color associated with it, which can help inform your decor. The nine quadrants are Wealth, Fame, Love, Family, Health, Children, Wisdom, Career, and Helpful People.
Most of us have televisions in our bedroom. It happens. If you have trouble sleeping it or even if you don’t, it is a good idea to cover the television when not in use. The active energy of the television as well as the electronic aspect of it may be disruptive to the type of calming quiet energy more conducive to sleep and bedrooms. My suggestion, find a beautiful scarf or fabric and just toss it over the television!

Although Cerrano advises embracing color, she also cautions against using too much of it. "You don't need to paint your entire room one of these colors," she explains. You'll still reap all the benefits of a hue if you incorporate it into your space sparingly. "You could have a neutral wall color (creme or beige) and accent your living room with noticeably warm colors through light sources, artwork, an area rug, or accent pillows," she suggests.

Using the Bagua, wind chimes made of bronze and metal are ideal for Northwest and west if that sector is lacking or missing. The same applies to bamboo or wooden chimes for the East and Southeast areas because those sectors are not suitable for wind chimes made of metal. The energy brought by wooden chimes are said to be less compared to its metal counterpart because the sound they make is less crisp.
Brings Luck, Education, Career, Children, Wealth etc. is for Family Harmony that every one carves for. This Dragon Tortoise on its back symbolizes a life worth living. Keep it in the "South East" for Financial Luck. Place it in your Home, Office or Desk. It will bring you a Wealth & Career Luck. You will also Blessed with many (obedient) sons. When displayed near the entrance of your Home, it will bring you a Long and a Happy Life.
A feng shui’d room (yes, it’s a verb now) will feel both safe and comfortable. A piece of artwork that’s hung fairly high, or an interesting piece of lighting that’s elevated above the rest of the space, draws the eye upward, which is believed to be a mood-elevating trick. If it doesn’t make sense in your space to hang artwork up high, try another eye-raising strategy, such as mounting window treatments near the ceiling or painting the ceiling a beautiful, soothing tone.
