The Chinese art form of Feng Shui, commonly used in practice by the ones who believe in vatsu, is known for dispersing and igniting Prosperity in its surroundings, of happiness and wealth to the practitioner and cultivating an environment of general well-being. The colours and its variant combinations are used as a means to achieving Feng Shui, of combing the beauty of ying with that of yang and in its belief, arriving and hoping to benefit in their symbolic fulfillment of the mind.
The colours, according to Feng Shui that seek to amplify not only the beauty, but also the aura of your home:
• Royalty of Purple and the Soothing Pink:
According to a survey in the furnishing store in Alabama, the colours most likely used by an average human around their home ranges from the subtlety of pink and the royalty of purple, combining both the feeling of being down-to-earth and that of the sophistication exclusively associated with a highness.
Purple, therefore, is best used in bedrooms, in places of work or study where Prosperity is supposed to infuse itself into; and Pink, is best used as a neutral lovely tone to that of the myriad shades of purple- a collaborative vibe for a peaceful and soothing light.

• Brightly Red:
The colour, they say, that brings fortune and luck, Feng Shui necessitates the activeness of this bold colour, stating still that it could -despite being the colour of love, induce anger and frustration. Therefore, Red should be used in dining areas instead of living rooms and bedrooms. Red, being the Fire Colour according to Feng Shui, influences and instigates excitement and lively joy, prospering wealth and good fortune while at the same time, supporting its negates with that of happiness and love.
