Many people ask… what is Feng shui?
Feng shui is an ancient art and science developed over 3,000 years ago in China. It is a complex body of knowledge that reveals how to balance the energies of any given space to assure health and good fortune for people inhabiting it.
Feng means wind and shui means water. In Chinese culture wind and water are associated with good health, thus good feng shui came to mean good fortune, while bad feng shui means bad luck, or misfortune.
Here is a feng shui tip to help you choose the best color for your homes’ exterior.
It is always excellent feng shui to live in a house that harmoniously blends with its surroundings, both natural and man-made. Define which exterior paint colors will work best with all the elements around your house; look at colors in nature, as well as neighboring houses. A good feng shui house has a balanced relationship with the outside elements.
Note: The front door is extremely important in feng shui as it is through the front door that the house absorbs nourishing Chi, or Universal energy and the door that you, your family and your guests enter through.
Of course, when choosing the best feng shui color for your homes’ exterior you will follow all the typical exterior color paint recommendations, such as taking into consideration your roof color, as well as the color of house elements that cannot be painted, such as the brick walls, for example, or the stone steps and the railings.
