Feng Shui and the Color Blue

According to Feng Shui blue is associated with the cleanliness and healing power of water, along with a divine sense of peace in the clear blue open skies.
Using the color blue according to Feng Shui would be helpful in the bagua areas contributing to the health and wellbeing of family. It can also provide a positive influence for creating wealth and abundance so blue would be a perfect addition to your home office or place of business.
Blue can be introduced by way of art pieces depicting blue installed on a wall or using it in decorative accessories of items placed in the room.
A gentle shade of blue would be a positive Feng Shui choice as well for a child’s study area, especially as the color on the ceiling. There have been studies that have shown that the performance of children improves when working under a ceiling painted in blue rather than under a white ceiling, which is typical.
A light shade of blue, according to Feng Shui, is a color that promotes a harmonious expansion of gentle growth and progress. On the other hand, a darker shade of blue brings about a Feng Shui energy creating a deep sense of calm and serenity.
Much depends on what you are trying to achieve with Feng Shui. A deep shade of blue might be a needed element in your bedroom for promoting sounder sleep. A gentle shade of aqua might add an energetic element of play in your big busy family or living room.
