Color is considered one of the easiest ways to create good feng shui or a good energy flow in your home. Certain types of colors are suggested to work best in some parts of the house. Skin tones like white, beige, tan, and brown are considered the bedroom’s best colors. Meanwhile, the fire element colors of red, pink, and purple should not be used in large amounts in the bedroom. But, just because feng shui may suggest a certain color, if you feel strongly about another color in your bedroom, then go with your instinct.
Follow Your Instinct
Red and pink may not be the color a feng shui practitioner or home decorator would suggest for your bedroom, but when you feel love—be it for color, a place, or a person—know that this “something” already has good feng shui for you. And by “good feng shui,” that translates to good energy for you. Deep down, you have the ability to know what good or bad feng shui is for yourself. Your body has enormous wisdom that might not be easy to translate into words, specific rules, or guidelines.
If you absolutely love certain colors, it is excellent feng shui to surround yourself with these colors. Your attraction to specific colors means your body is getting energy nourishment from these colors, so it is good to follow your feelings.

Generally, choosing the right colors with feng shui takes a bit of time and calculation. You start with the colors you most like and colors that work well with your planned feng shui decor scheme.
In feng shui, each color represents a specific feng shui earth element. For instance, red represents the fire element. Color can either bring strong energy or deplete and weaken the energy in specific areas of your home. You would need to familiarize yourself with your home’s feng shui energy map (the Bagua) to understand how this works.
Also, color can represent your own personal feng shui birth element too. Energy-wise, some colors are a better feng shui choice for you than others.
In feng shui, there are specific guidelines for choosing colors in your bedroom. This is because bedrooms consider a very important place in feng shui. It is a place of rejuvenation, pleasure, and peace.
