One of the many ways to work with colour in a Vaastu home is by choosing colours that honour the direction and the element associated with each it.
Colours of Earth
The earth element is predominant in the south-west. In earlier times most coloured pigments were derived from the earth itself – from rock, soil, plants, barks of trees and flowers. Earth’s colour is defined by the earthy tones associated with the soil – shades of brown, cinnamon, ochre, sienna, and sepia among other.
Colours of Water
The colour dominating the north-east side is blue. Blues and bluish-greens are associated with the cool element of water. Honour the northeast by using light shades of blue, have actual water features or even pictures of water.
Colours of Fire
Flame colours of golden yellow, red, and golden orange, pale rather than intense, acknowledges the fire energies present in the south-east. Imagine the colour of an apricot on the walls of your kitchen. It can be quite uplifting, turning kitchen chores into a delight. How about trying some fiery accents in other south-east rooms of your home?
Colours of Air
Air colours are subtle and very elusive. They are portrayed as light and delicate silver and white. These colours will resonate with the air element, which is predominantly in the north-west.
Colours of Space
The expansiveness of space does not have a particular colour assigned to it since it is such a subtle an element. However, the centre where the space element is most lively is luminous and golden. A subtle shade of golden hue will make this space precious, radiant and beautiful.
Think about it, always remember, attention to details is a key when decorating your abode into a Vaastu compliant abode. Choose colours that infer something spiritual, uplifting and eternal for those 4 walls of your precious universe.
