Question: I enjoy exploring all the feng shui color tips you have on your site and have already applied many of your feng shui color suggestions in my home. I love all the new colors! However, now we are looking into applying feng shui in the baby's room and I cannot find any info on best feng shui colors for the baby. Is it good feng shui to stay with the traditional pink color for a baby girl and blue color for a baby boy? What is the best feng shui color for baby's room?
Answer: The main feng shui way to determine the best feng shui color for your baby's room is according to your baby's feng shui birth element. Check this feng shui chart to find out your baby's feng shui element.
Next, in order to choose the best feng shui color for your baby's room, you will have to look into the basics of the five feng shui elements and understand how the five feng shui elements are represented in specific colors.
This will help you find the feng shui colors that will nurture your baby's energy. You will also know which colors are best to avoid in your baby's room.
Even though this might sound complicated, it is actually really easy. Let's look at an example of choosing the best feng shui colors for a baby with the birth feng shui element of Wood.
1. Best Feng Shui Colors for this Baby. By looking at the info about the five feng shui elements, you will see that the Wood feng shui element is represented by colors brown and green.
So, you can choose a soft green or a warm light brown for your baby's room; or a combination of both.
However, there are more feng shui color choices for you. If you study the productive cycle of the five feng shui elements, you will discover several other color options for your baby.
As the Wood feng shui element is nurtured /supported by the Water element, as well as the Earth element, you can also choose your baby's room feng shui color from the colors that correspond to these two feng shui elements.
So, the best feng shui colors for a baby with the Wood feng shui birth element are:
- Brown color (Wood)
- Green color (Wood)
- Blue color (Water)
- Earthy colors (Earth)
- Black color (Water) (in small accents)
2. Feng Shui Colors To Avoid for this Baby. The same interaction of the five feng shui elements - but in the destructive cycle - will show you which colors can be overpowering for your baby's energy. By overpowering I mean when color is used as the main wall color, for example.
A strong presence of the Fire and Metal feng shui elements colors is best avoided in the room of a baby with the feng shui birth element of Wood.
So, here are the feng shui colors that is best to avoid (in large quantities) in this baby's room:
It is important to apply this info in an intelligent way because it is just a guideline to help make best color choices for your baby's room. It does not mean you should avoid white color in the room because this will be silly. What it means, though, is that a mostly white color baby's room with, let's say strong yellow, purple and orange elements, is not the best choice for this specific baby.
On a practical level, for example, instead of buying the crib, the rocking chair, and the changing table all in white, you will know that it is best to go for furniture in warm wood (for a baby with the Wood birth element).
It is also important to make the best choices not only when choosing the paint color, but also the paint quality. Go for the highest quality eco paint you can afford, as the level of indoor toxins in one's indoor environment can be overwhelming.
