West Feng Shui Color
If you want to create a good feng shui home, it is always a good idea to start at your front door. Why? Because it is through the front door - also called the mouth of Chi - that the house absorbs most of the energy it needs in order to nourish your personal energy.
The easiest way to create a strong feng shui front door is with the appropriate feng shui design for it, which includes colours, specific shapes and materials. The best feng shui design is the one that nourishes the feng shui element of the direction of your front door.
In feng shui, the energy of a front door is determined by its facing direction, so there are 8 different guidelines for front doors that face each of the 8 directions.
The feng shui element of West direction is Metal, and the corresponding feng shui bagua energy is the energy of Children & Creativity.
Metal feng shui element colours are: White and Gray
In the case of a West facing front door, there is one more feng shui element you can use; this gives you a wider range of good colours. The element of Earth is nourishing for the Metal element, thus all Earth element colours are also good for a West facing front door.
Earth feng shui element colours are: All Earthy/ Sandy Colours and Light Yellow Colour
So, the best feng shui colours for a West facing front door are (in order of their auspiciousness): white, gray, light yellow and all earthy/sandy colours.
Avoid the following colours for your West facing front door: blue, black, red, purple, orange, and deep pink. These colours represent the elements of Water and Fire that are weakening/destructive for the Metal element of West direction (according to the five elements destructive cycle.)
