South is the fire element. Activate this element with candles and plants to fuel the fire. A fireplace located on the south wall also activates the fire element. Steer clear of metal since it draws water which will douse the fire.
Use one or a combination of two or three colors.
Other colors can certainly be used in combination with any of these.
- Gold (yellow)
Metal is the element of the west. Metal candle sticks, metal picture frames and metal tables and chairs work to activate this element.
Black is not typically a color advised for an entire room color. White walls with a black and white tile floor is a great way to introduce these colors into a room design.
Use the two colors in combination with black as an accent color. A wall mural prominent in both colors is a creative way to use the color.
Water is the element for the North. Use photos or paintings of water scenes (unless this is a bedroom). An aquarium in a den located in the north is a good choice or a small table fountain. Be sure to invest in a flying stars report to make sure activating this or any room element is advisable. Add various metal objects since it draws water.
There are quite a few colors to consider for this direction.
- Aqua or teal
Center of Home
This area in all likelihood has several rooms that fall into this area.
The earth element is activated with pottery. Clay and bronze statues also bring the earth energy inside your room. Since fire creates earth (ash) you can add candles to further activate the earth element. Minimize the use of wood furniture and for upholstered chairs and sofas.
Colors by Room
Compass directions with their assigned colors are the best way to go when selecting a color. There are exceptions, such as colors you should never use in rooms with specific purpose, such as a kitchen where the fire element is generated. Some colors are natural choices since they have an emotional or psychological effect, such as a restive green or tranquil blue. When in doubt about the best color to use, consider compass direction and room function.
The feng shui bedroom should attract yin energy since it is a retreat and dedicated to rest. The best yin colors are blue and green. Yellow will revitalize while red will probably generate too much yang energy that excites and stimulates. Try to create a nice balance if you introduce the more energized properties of yang colors into your bedroom decor. You will want the yin energy colors to remain dominate for the most restive effect.

The bathroom is inauspicious since waste water is negative chi and this represents the loss of wealth. You can counter this effect with some yang colors, but yin colors work best. When using dark colors (yang) be sure to add lighter colors (yin) to maintain a good feng shui balance of yin and yang colors.
