Choosing your colour Schemes with Feng Shui

When it comes to decorating a new room, the first thing that a lot of us may consider is the colour scheme.  But where to start?  With so many shades available on the market today it can be difficult to make a decision that's right for you.

We could turn to the ancient art and Science of Feng Shui.  Developed over 3000 years ago, the Chinese concept of Feng Shui is suggested to bring good fortune, improve health and strengthen relationships.  In the current climate, we could all do with a little boost of well-being.  So let’s get started!

The direction of your room will determine the colours that would be best for you.  Using a compass, stand in the centre of your house and find the direction of your room (from the centre).  Now see below for the colour scheme that would best suit your room:

Reds are a great colour for these rooms.
