The right feng shui color use can bring a strong shift of energy into your environment. Pink is the universal color of love, which makes it a perfect feng shui color to soothe the energy. Its gentle and delicate feng shui vibrations have a proven soothing effect on one's behavior. You could almost say that, as a feng shui color, pink literally soothes the heart and fills it with love.

The most popular use of pink color in feng shui is in the Southwest area of one's space, as it is connected to the energy of love & marriage. The feng shui element of Southwest is the Earth element, so a Fire element color such as pink is perfect because the Fire element nourishes the Earth element in the productive cycle of feng shui 5 elements. You can bring the desired Fire element energy with wall color or furniture and decor accessories.

The most common pink color used in feng shui decorating is a gentle pink, although the "hot version" of it, the magenta pink, is also very popular. Combined with orange, also a fire feng shui element color, it can bring a fiery and passionate energy to any space.

When used too much in any indoor environment, though, pink color can create a floating effect, and its inhabitants may tend to live in an illusory world. So, use it wisely!
