Color in the interior according to Feng Shui
Make the home a harmonious Chinese teachings of Feng Shui will help you to choose the right colors for your interior.
To correctly select the interior colors for Feng-Shui, you should consider not only their adopted symbols, but also your personal perception. Someone does not like shades of purple, someone’s afraid of yellow. In addition, in the Western and Eastern traditions some colors are perceived differently. A classic example is white – it symbolizes purity and joy, and in China it is the color of death, funerals. Psychologists and interior designers warn you about the red color, which can cause hyperactivity and even aggression, if it is too bright.
Red. One of the oldest symbols of life and resurrection, is also associated with fire and represents the active principle Yang. Especially good where there is a lack of light and heat, as well as in areas where it is necessary to stimulate mental and physical activity. The excess of red is undesirable because it disturbs the balance between Yin and Yang, that is, in everyday language, the interior is too bright and flashy. I do not advise to use red in rooms designed for relaxation.
Yellow. Symbolizes abundance and health. In addition, its shades create a feeling of comfort and tranquility. Note that we are accustomed to the yellowish evening light but intense yellow can cause negative associations.
Green. In virtually all cultures is a symbol of life and rebirth. European psychologists here it is in agreement with the masters of Feng Shui: the color and its shades contribute to the restoration of strength, calm, peace harmony, have beneficial effects on vision and in General create optimal conditions for life.
Blue. The color of ocean depths and the celestial heights. Means mystery and a state of meditation. The interior gives a solemnity, creates a feeling of coolness and cleanliness. However, the bluish lighting was not helpful for daily life, especially for the kitchen.
Black. In the Eastern concepts of color, is closely associated with the change of seasons symbolizes the winter. It is impossible to imagine the house with blind black walls or a black ceiling is something from the category of scary tales. In European tradition the black color is mostly used only in the decoration or as the color of the furniture.
White. The color of the absolute, the ultimate manifestation of a quality. Associated with light, including eternal. Its use in the interior implies a certain responsibility. Symbolizing purity, sincerity and clarity, white should retain its original perfection.
