Feng Shui and flower colours

If you are new to Feng Shui, it might all seem a bit confusing. It’s really all about allowing the energy to flow through your home or office and this, in turn, influences your life in the most positive ways. When it comes to Feng Shui, it’s not only about where and how you arrange your furniture. It’s also about the colours you use. So, if you want to order flowers that will benefit your Feng Shui style, here’s what you need to know.

Each colour has a meaning in Feng Shui and they are as follows:

Red and purple : Fire

Yellow and orange: Earth

Grey, silver and white: Metal

Blue and black: Water

Green and brown: Wood

These colours interact with one another in different ways. For example:

Fire (red) creates earth (yellow) which creates metal (grey). Metal creates water (blue) which then creates wood (green) and it all comes full circle because wood creates fire. Use the creation elements to emphasise a particular mood or element in a room.

Similarly, like creation, there is also a destructive relationship between certain elements. Fire destroys metal, earth destroys water, metal destroys wood, water destroys fire,and wood destroys earth. It is through these destructive relationships that you can counteract a particular mood or element.

Some great combinations for perfect Feng Shui flower arrangements include these colours:

  • Red and yellow blends earth and fire in a single, intense bouquet. This arrangement is perfect for your kitchen, den, or living room.
  • Blue and green creates a lively bouquet with a soothing and calming effect. Ideal for bedrooms, bathrooms, and baby rooms.
  • Purple and blue combines earth and water. Another soothing pair that will enrich your work space and encourage prosperity.
