What is feng shui anyway?

According to the Collins Dictionary, “Feng shui is a Chinese art which is based on the belief that the way you arrange things within a building, and within the rooms of that building, can affect aspects of your life such as how happy and successful you are.”

Along with the placement of objects within your home, feng shui also has ideas about what colors are most auspicious in specific circumstances such as the direction your room faces.  For instance, if your room faces East, the best colors to  paint it are wood colors, green and brown.  Also, blue and black are good.  Don’t take our word for it, check The Spruce link for all color solutions.   In addition, the Chinese calendar plays a role in determining what color is lucky this year and will bring good fortune. This year bright red is the most auspicious color!

No time to study feng shui?

If all of this seems like just too much to take on, you can always trust the other experts, the paint manufacturers.  According to Behr paints, this year’s colors are understated and muted.

So there you have it!  Either let ancient Chinese philosophy or paint manufacturers help you decide what color to paint your living room!
