We are talking about feng shui paint colors and incorporating them in your painting home or business project. With that in mind, we at L.W. Winslow Painting, Inc would like to cover the basics of feng shui.

How to Use Feng Shui Bagua
The most optimal way to start to strengthen the color and balance the energy is to start with the basics with feng shui painting, because it is complex. For starters, the right placement of feng shui colors is being defined by the bagua, which is the feng shui energy map of your space. To begin this process, analyze the south feng shui bagua area. The south feng shui bagua, or better translated as the Light, or Fire Within, area is connected to your fame and reputation energy. Not only is fame and reputation connected to this, but so is the image you project towards others and how well you are able to maintain your own Light, or identity and personal values. To incorporate the south feng shui bagua area, the best colors used should be strong yellow, and orange, along with red, purple, pink. In addition to strong bagua, the fire energy strong is important as well and thus avoiding blues and blacks, or the water energy, in this area is essential as it will produce a destructive cycle in the south feng shui bagua area of your space.
