Feng Shui Color Swatches for Rooms in the Home by Life Area

by Moni Castaneda

In a previous article I wrote about how you shouldn't paint rooms by the colors of the Feng Shui bagua map, but rather by the element that rules the conscious function of the room itself. In a subsequent article, I addressed how the foyer is an exception to this rule.

The most common feedback I got from people who read the three articles was the question:
"Can you just tell me what color to paint the ____________ (name of room) in the ________________ life area?"

So for all those of you who just want to know what are the best base colors for each room in the home for each life area location, see the chart below.

I have included a small chart of the life area numbers for your reference. Notice that the colors recommended for Feng Shui interior design are different from the colors in the bagua map.

If you keep scrolling down I have also included another version of the chart with color swatches instead of color names, that you can share on Pinterest.

Life Area #4:
Wealth, Prosperity and Self Worth
Life Area #9:
Fame, Reputation and Social Life
Life Area #2:
Marriage, Relationships and Partnerships
Life Area #3:
Health, Family and Community
Life Area #5:
Center of Good Fortune and Gratitude
Life Area #7:
Children, Creativity and Fun
Life Area #8:
Wisdom, Self-Knowledge and Rest
Life Area #1:
Career, Life Mission and Individuality
Life Area #6:
Helpful People, Spiritual Life and Travel

The colors below have been determined with careful elemental analysis for both the room and the life area, as they combine in the floor plan. Please keep in mind the colors mentioned are only the dominant color recommended for the room in the particular sector of the bagua map, but this doesn't mean the whole room should be done in that color.

First find the room on the left and then find what life area of the bagua map that room occupies in your home.

See below the second version of the chart with the Feng Shui swatches for colors recommended per room and life area combination.

First find the room on the left and then find what life area of the bagua map that room occupies in your home to see the colors that are recommended.

Remember that these are only the base colors and this does not mean that the whole room should be done in that color or color family. Always choose colors that you personally love.

When choosing your decor keep in mind the general mood you want to create in each room, which you can find in the chart on my previous article.
