Feng Shui Colors For A Bedroom


Feng Shui Bedroom ColorsEach week, I have numerous conversations with single men/ women and married couples on what the best color is to paint their bedroom.

Of course each person or couple has their own unique style and many times I will tailor my suggestions based on the specific person, couple or space.

In general, pink is considered to be one of the best colors for the bedroom because it is the color associated with relationships. Pink is also thought of as an auspicious color combining the fire/ passion of red and the metal element of white. Pink represents love and pure feelings of joy, happiness, and romance.

Light blues and light greens are positive colors for a bedroom as well as small accent colors of red. Green represents tranquility, hope and freshness as seen in spring growth or that of a new plant or leaf.

If an individual is seeking to get married, then they may want to consider painting the bedroom pink or peach.

The color peach aligns with "Peach Blossom Luck," which represents attraction and love. A person that is single with peach blossom luck will be outgoing, social, make new friends and have numerous admirers. However, once married, consider painting the bedroom a different color as it can lead to adultery.

I typically don't recommend chocolate brown in the bedroom as it can give a heavy feeling. Some believe that it can be used to create a stable, established impression, I equate it to autumn, when leaves turn brown and fall to the ground.

Click play to watch the video below that describes the best Feng Shui Bedroom Colors For Couples.

Many Chinese stay away from having white blankets on their beds because it is similar to the shroud that covers the dead and fear sleep will seem like death.

Although, plain white sheets or white sheets with flowers or colorful designs are fine. The use of pink or red sheets and blankets are used by those seeking to get married or by newlyweds to ensure wedding bliss.

When thinking about the bedroom, one of the most important principles is determining the placement of the bed in the command position, a power position that provides a view of the door, prevents surprise, and gives control of an environment.

peach color for bedroom it should the same colour for every 4 faces
Posted @ Sunday, February 08, 2009 11:35 AM by Blink
You can incorporate peach into the bedroom any way you see fit. It can be on all 4 walls, or could be on certain walls. Each person and space are different. Some people incorporate peach into the color scheme and not with paint.

Franklin, I would stick to the light blues or greens for the bedroom.

This picture took my attention.  
We painted our bedroom pink last year. Our blanket has red and green leaves on it. We actually got married few months later we changed the decoration, and we love our bedroom! Our bed position and decoration is very similar with this picture, the only difference is that we have two picture frames on the top of the bed instead of one. Is that bad?

I am a single mom of two young girls. My bedroom is all white with white closet doors and white wood trim all around. I prefer green as opposed to peach but am wondering if the intensity of the color or tone makes a difference. Is a rich, dark peach preferably to a light peach color (if one is interested in getting married or finding a lifelong partner)? Is a light olive or moss green a good color? And, what about the ceiling color and wood trim? Can those remain white or is adding color to those preferable, too. Thank you!
Posted @ Tuesday, January 26, 2010 4:14 PM by Kris
Kris, A light color green is soothing and favorable color for the bedroom. I personally prefer lighter colors instead of darker colors regardless if it is peach, green, etc. The ceiling color and trim is fine to leave white.

I would like to put a Painting in my Master Bedroom,is it ok? What painting should i hang?
Posted @ Tuesday, January 26, 2010 11:11 PM by Franklin
Franklin, Yes, it is ok to put a painting in your master bedroom. Just make sure it is not of a single man or woman. Should be of a couple or scenery or art is fine. Just make sure that it relaxes and inspires you and not depresses you with the colors or reminds you or difficult times.
Posted @ Wednesday, January 27, 2010 10:22 PM by Ken Lauher
Ken ~ Another blog with fantastic information. Color in a bedroom is so important and if selecting a pink or peach color scheme can also positively influence your relationship, it is something definitely worth looking into. kate

Erica, I might not paint the bedroom peach but may consider a pink, light blue or light green color.

Hi Ken,  
I'm single. I have implemented various feng shui elements in my bedroom, but wanted to check regarding my painting. I have a large painting of a sleeping buddha's face which is gold/bronze in color and although it's of a single image, it is extremely peaceful and gives me a sense of calm and not loneliness when I look at it. Is it ok to keep it?
Posted @ Friday, February 05, 2010 1:08 AM by Leena
Hi. I have been married for almost 10 years. My husband and I both have issues with sleep and fatigue,which interfer with our intimacy.  
our bedroom is a med blue color. it is mellow but very cool...almost actic in feel. I thought it would be calming. 
lately I have been thinking about changing the colour of the room to a kind of flesh tone. not peach...but a nice warm neutral. I think the colour will be calming as well as better for romance than the very cool colour we have now.  
What are your thoughts about this? 
Thanks !!! 
Posted @ Sunday, February 21, 2010 2:51 AM by sandra frankel
Sandra, Some colors can actually deplete a person's energy. I would try the color change and it may be enough to invigorate new energy into the relationship.
Posted @ Sunday, February 21, 2010 7:01 AM by Ken Lauher
Love this article! I just became single and am looking to bring greater love into my life. I bought a silver comforter with light pink sheets...however, the silver actually looks more lavender. That's not a color you mention in this article, and I want to make sure I haven't just added a color that will hurt the love energy in my bedroom. I also have two throw pillows with pink included in them.

Is mocha and white a good color for a bedroom as well?
Posted @ Tuesday, March 23, 2010 12:47 AM by erica
Erica, I typically recommend staying away from the darker browns as they can lead to depression.
Posted @ Tuesday, March 23, 2010 10:42 PM by Ken Lauher
I would lean towards the light greens for you. Something soothing, peaceful and truly relaxing.

Hi Ken, 
My kids and I recently moved into a new home (not literally new but new to us) I'm engaged but because of our situation my fiancé and I won’t be together in our home for quite sometime. I want your advice on what colors I should use in our bedroom. For my kids as well. I have a daughter (7yrs) and a son (12yrs). Thank you... 
Posted @ Wednesday, April 07, 2010 11:01 AM by Christina
Christina, I would consider a light green for your bedroom. For your daughter, I would consider light rose color but maybe not all the walls and for your son a light blue and white theme.

Hello Ken, 
Thank you very much for ths site.This is very helpful!

Hi Ken, I have a desk and computer in my bedroom, is this bad? Also a tv.

Posted @ Monday, April 19, 2010 4:22 PM by Tania
Tania, It is not ideal to have electronics, tv, etc. in the bed. Keep in mind that the bedroom is for two things and they both start with the letter "S"
Posted @ Monday, April 19, 2010 8:47 PM by Ken Lauher
Hi Ken, I love your site, I always get such great tips! 
I am married and currently my bedroom is painted a light pale pink. I am also a new mom and needless to say have many sleepless nights while I'm a full-time working Mom. 
I feel that changing the paint color will bring better energy and happiness in my marriage - which is very strained. 
What color will be best for the walls? 
Thank you!
Posted @ Monday, April 26, 2010 8:36 AM by Lilly
Lilly, first off, congratulations on your new arrival. This is a very exciting time. Enjoy it! Above, I suggested colors for the bedroom. I usually suggest colors for each person but for you I think you have your heart set on a specific color and instead of me sharing it with you, I want you to tap into your intuition and be strong enough to share it and paint it. To improve your relationship, think about sharing love not only with your new arrival but with your significant other. And make sure you have time for yourself as this can be the most important love of all.

Hi Ken,  
i'm a single and always seems to have no luck. i'm planning to revamp and room and repaint it from pale blue to pink. 
i'm thinking pink and light pink on 2 walls each or pink and peach... what do you think? 
Posted @ Saturday, May 29, 2010 12:24 AM by J
Hi Ken 
I just bought a canvas painting with left half as abstract art and the right half as front half face of sleeping buddha for my bedroom. However someone told me it is bad luck to put a painting of buddha in the room. Please let me know if its okay to put up the painting.
Posted @ Sunday, June 06, 2010 12:49 PM by Sharad
Sometimes art is just art. You have to decide what it means to you and symbolizes. However, I would not personally have a buddha with half a face in my bedroom. When dealing with individuals, you want to see their full face and for bedroom art or pictures, best to have pairs of people represented. Here you have a half a person.

Hi I am a singleparent/mother, and I my bedroom is in the North, NorthEast section of apartment. My walkin closet and bathroom is NorthWest which can be entered from my room. My bed head touches north wall. What colour paint should I paint room and or what should I do in the north wall since I cannot put a water feature or picture in the room? I am about to paint wall olive green
Posted @ Sunday, July 18, 2010 5:53 PM by Chevonne
Chevonne, Keep in mind that when speaking of cardinal direction of North, etc., that you are referring to a different school of Feng Shui that I do not practice. I practice the BTB method where we view a space by how the chi enters a home or room. The bedroom is a yin feature, water is a yang feature so I don't recommend running water in the bedroom. Also, the noise of the water can disturb your sleep. I recommend light, soothing colors. I'm not sure how deep and dark the olive green is. I always compare green for the bedroom as a color of a new leaf.

I need some help with my room. I have a very bad set up with a west facing room. My door is on the East wall towards the South side of the bedroom and my window on the West wall towards the South. The entire North wall of my room is a closet. There is nowhere to put my bed that is not in the draught between the door and window. I need a good color scheme. I'm 27, single, and haven't had good luck with relationships. I also have anxiety and insomnia. Can you you have me any tips?
Posted @ Wednesday, July 21, 2010 4:57 AM by Megan
Just a little correction... my window is on the west wall towards the north..so my bed is caught in a diagonal between the door and window.

We just had our house painted about two months back. Prior to painting, I was doing extremely well as a translator. The master bedroom is where I work from. Ever since we got it painted in light and dark (indigo) blue color, my work seems to have been affected negatively (less work), and I find that I am not able to concentrate well and am getting distracted by different things. Have we chosen the wrong colors for our room?
Posted @ Saturday, August 14, 2010 7:00 AM by Honey
Honey, What was the color of the master bedroom before you painted it? Dark colors including dark blue can lower a person's energy. I recommend colors on the lighter side as listed in the above article.
Posted @ Sunday, August 15, 2010 7:05 PM by Ken Lauher
Hi Ken, thank you so much for your article! I've been feeling so drained lately (I can barely stay awake and no motivation) and have never painted the walls of my room. I'm looking for a color that will both help bring me positive energy towards finding a relationship and career. Can you suggest something? 
Thank you,

Hi Ken, 
Me and my husband(married for 17 yrs)wanted to paint the master bedroom located in the northeast part of the house. Wanted to have the north wall painted/ or wallpaper in a pinkish purlish colour with the rest of the walls white. 
But the colour of the north is black and blue. hence the concern. 
Please advice.Thanks

Eve, I'm not sure of the name or manufacturer of the bed.

Hi Ken, great article! I'm single,not really dating seriously yet wanting to be married in the future, and I'm very new to feng shui. 
I just had my bedroom repainted 3 months ago. Three walls are a pale sage green and my accent wall is the dreaded chocolate brown.  
I've decided to repaint my bedroom pink, however I do love the idea of an accent wall.  
Which color should I use as an accent wall, that won't clash with pink? I was thinking red, but that visual isn't quite clicking for me. Or should I not consider an accent wall at all? Thanks!
Posted @ Saturday, August 21, 2010 12:28 AM by MaryP
Mary, You may want to consider your accent wall to be pink and the rest of the walls white or ivory. A red wall is a little to energizing for the bedroom.

Is it pink you recommend for the bedroom walls any way the bedroom lies?In our case it is SW , and it is not going well recently between us. 
Thank you, Brana
Posted @ Sunday, September 26, 2010 6:10 PM by BI-B
Bi-B, Pink is good color for the bedroom but light blue or light green can also be good. Take a moment also to look at the relationship corner. When standing in the bedroom door looking into your bedroom, what do you have in the back right corner?
Posted @ Sunday, September 26, 2010 6:34 PM by Ken Lauher
As per your earlier recommendations, I painted the master bedroom in light blue, including the ciling to seal the popcorn treatment that I we were not able to remove. Starting that day, my husband and I stopped sleeping together. What do you think happened? Thank you for your reply. Rita

Hello there! 
I have just discover your site and I found it full of infos and I'd like to ask something also.  
I live in a flat, my flat is at the end of a looong corridor and also when you enter the house there is also a corridor which connects with the kitchen and living room(there are in the same room). 
When I moved here I read about houses that are at the end of a corridor that is better to put a Pa Qua mirror outside to send away the negative energy that "runs" to the door..and I did. 
Lately I started thinking that maybe is also better to put a kind of curtain that will divide the inside corridor with the kitchen... 
I feel that it will keep the negative energy away from the inside room. 
What is your opinion or advise? 
and what colour should I use for the curtain? 
Thank you for your time! 
My regards,

Hi, Ken, 
I am learning so much from you! Thank you for taking the time to provide this service free of charge as so many of us cannot afford an actual consultation (yet!). 
Here is a question I have been unable to find an answer for, anywhere. Our bedroom is in the Knowledge Gua (half Knowledge and half Family, to be precise). The Relationship/Marriage corner of the room itself is in the Family Gua of the house. The adjacent bathroom is half in the Family area and half in the Wealth area (!!!). Same with my closet. I'm at a loss as to how to manage all this, as far as colors, elements, decor. I have many other questions as well, but this is the one that is bugging me the most at this time. 
Thank you again!

Dear Ken, 
I you am a single mom living in the netherlands and I have had alot of bad luck if you can call it that. I haven't done too much yet with Feng Shui but it keeps coming up in my head and I am hoping that it will bring some positive energy into my life in the form of friends, money, joy and fun. Everything at the moment seems to be a struggle. there are many disagreements, fighting, strained relationsgips, and loss. Are there simple things I can do to change this. Colors, crystals, mirrors? I know you are a very popular and busy man but hope that you can give me some simple tips to turn the chi around in my life. Many thanks KB

It's time to paint our bedroom. We've had light pink walls, but they just look washed out and they annoy me every time I"m in the room. Our bedroom is northwest in the house, our bed is placed as it should be. Furniture is a deep cherry wood. According to the birth charts, my husband and I are both water elements. I have a strong urge to paint the bedroom a rich red and use bright white for the ceiling and trim. What do you think?
Posted @ Thursday, January 13, 2011 7:53 AM by Jamie A.
First off, congratulations during this exciting time in your life. Regarding the color of your bedroom, peach is good for single people looking for a relationship but not advisable for a married couple. Pink is a positive color for singles and married couples. Also, light blue and light green colors are good for married couples. No dark browns or darker colors recommended for paint colors.

Hi Ken, 
Thank you for taking questions, it's very conforting to know that you are there to help! 
I have two pictures of the ocean in my bedroom. One of them is a panoramic ocean with a single white sailboat, which symbolized to me tranquility and the immensity of God. The other is on my side of the bed and has mostly the ocean in pastel pinks, burgundy and teals. I usually see that picture and think of my wishes as being a small drop of water in the scheme of things. It reminds me of the abundace of the Universe. The room is painted a soothing mixture of all different whites and creams, and I faux finished the wood pieces with a white wash on golden pine, were I placed ivy leafs in some of the pieces. I's a very soothing room, I'm not sure about the romance part...I am in a long standing happy relationship. Could you help me to spice up the bedroom with color? thanks, Lily

I am single should the pink or peach color be used as an accent wall color and if so which wall.I really like red as a accent wall color behind my head board.
Posted @ Sunday, May 29, 2011 10:29 PM by colette
Colette, The bedroom is yin energy. Red is yang energy. I don't recommend such a bright red color for a wall from a Feng Shui stand point. I would consider making that wall the peach or pink wall.

hey, ive been with the same man for almost ^ yrs. we broke up for awhile(still living together) and now were tryin to work things out. i want to paint our room and make it stress free so we can try to move on from him cheating on me. what are your thoughts?
Posted @ Monday, June 20, 2011 5:18 PM by Dee
Dee, Light green may be a good color for your bedroom. Keep in mind that you don't have to paint all the walls with color. You could have one accent wall be light green and the rest white. Stay way from Peach color.

Hi Ken! 
Thank you for this marvelous blog. I have a small problem in choosing between pink and peach. 
I am in my early twenties, and in a relationship which can be classified in the 'ok-but-not-actually-the-greatest' zone, but its something I'd like to work on more as I find my boyfriend to be intelligent and caring though somewhat perfectionist and demanding.  
Living in an Asian country, I live with my parents and intend to do so till marriage.  
I'd like to have 'peach blossom luck' as you call it: 'will be outgoing, social, make new friends and have numerous admirers'. 
So, regarding my situation, what would you recommend? A warm pink or peach?
Posted @ Thursday, June 30, 2011 1:38 AM by Erie
Eire, Based on what you described, I recommend a peach color to add to your room. However, once you become engaged or married, you may want to consider changing it to a light green color.
Posted @ Thursday, June 30, 2011 10:31 PM by Ken Lauher
Thank you, Ken:).
Posted @ Friday, July 01, 2011 11:11 AM by Erie
HI Ken! After reading through your advice I did some more research. I have a small problem: in some articles I read that peach blossom luck, though giving many admirers, also tends to give short term romances. This is said to be because, though peach blossoms appear in abundance, there lifetime is short lived.  
What is you opinion on this matter?
Posted @ Thursday, July 07, 2011 12:20 AM by Erie
Erie, I personally have not found that to be true. Of course, once you are married, I do recommend changing the color.

Hi Ken, I moved into my new home as a newly single woman 5 yrs ago but I have neglected the bedroom and left it the pale lilac of the previous owners.  
I'm in my late 50s and would love to attract new romance into my life. What color/s should I use?
Posted @ Friday, July 22, 2011 1:51 PM by Sue
Hi Ken, 
I went through a rough break up half a year ago and I want to repaint my room to have a new energy and feel. I am in my early twenties am recovering from mild depression and am ready for change. 
Right now my room is yellow, peach, orange and pink (a sunrise) is painted on one of my walls.  
are there any other colors you would recommend to bring happiness, energy, confidence? 
I was thinking a light purple or lavender 
do you think this will be too sad of a color? 
Posted @ Monday, July 25, 2011 7:51 PM by AMBER
Amber, I would consider a light green color and not the light purple or lavender.
Posted @ Monday, July 25, 2011 9:22 PM by Ken Lauher
Hello Ken!  
I am changing bedrooms e.g. repainting, redecorating, etc. My now-soon-to-be-former room is a lovely pale pink (not tacky) and I want to accent it w/ browns & convert it to a make-up / meditation room. I was initially going to paint the new bedroom a subtle beige-brown w/ accents of the chocolate brown and offwhite (materials e.g. bedding) to off-set the other room. This room is well-lit in the morning, which I luv, and I want it to be like Zen when going to bed. I am 40 and single - and kind of restarting my life! Your insight would be appreciated! Thank you, M

Our bedroom faces east and the ocean, has Ten foot ceilings and large windows for the ocean view. We have oriental furniture. Any words of wisdom?
Posted @ Saturday, August 20, 2011 8:35 PM by Holley
Michelle, I would still stick with some of the color recommendations as I listed above such as light green, light blue or a pink or peach color. Adding the darker browns may have a way of lowering your chi or energy and not empower you to go after what you truly want in life or in a relationship.
Posted @ Sunday, August 21, 2011 8:08 PM by Ken Lauher
HI ken, Can you tell me If painting the ceiling dark purple and side walls light cream will have any negative effect, cause from the time I have things are really hampering my career ?

Hi Ken, 
Thanks very much for this blog. Question: My relationship corner, based on my personal feng shui number, is in the southwest direction, which is directly in the corner where my door is to the room. I'm confused if this is the right place or if I should move everything to the back right corner? Many thanks

Hi Ken, I am not married but i live with my boyfriend. I painted my room with a brown looking skin color (it is not dark) because i read in another page that skin colors are good feng shui for bedrooms. Is it correct? or do you recommend to change to a different color?
Posted @ Tuesday, September 13, 2011 11:01 PM by Evelyn
Hello Ken. I am in my mid 50's and recently divorced. I am quite content being on my own and would prefer to stay that way. I've had quite a bit of sadness after the loss of a child. I need to energize myself and thought to start with my bedroom. It's in the southeast corner of my home. As I enter my room there is a wall, so I have to go right to the bedroom, or left to the masterbath. Being content as a single person, what color(s) would you recommend for the bedroom and the bathroom. Also, what can I place on the wall in front of the doorway? Thank you.
Posted @ Saturday, October 01, 2011 5:51 PM by Pam
Hi Ken, 
My husband and I are thinking of painting the wall behind our bed an accent color. We love the soft brown color of our bedroom walls, but that wall needs some touch ups or an overhaul (we don't know the paint color). I was thinking a magenta would look nice (I liked Benjamin Moore's Gyspy Pink), but I don't want it to bring too much energy into the room and interrupt with our sleep. I do like the idea of adding fire colors though... 
What are your thoughts? Do you have a different idea that would work better? The brown is a soft coffee or oyster color. 
Thank you!

Dear Ken , absolutely loved your website. Im a single woman looking to attract my soulmate, what would be the ideal colour for my room . Ive always chosen an offwhite /cream tone but i'd love to go with a colour for one wall while keeping the rest of the room a neutral colour. Is green a option ?
Posted @ Saturday, October 15, 2011 8:59 AM by Neha
Thank you for the kind words. Truly appreciate it. A light green is a good option for an accent wall. Let me know what you think of it once you paint it. 
Posted @ Tuesday, October 18, 2011 8:56 PM by Ken Lauher
Hello Ken !  
So here goes , I'm actually going for a palm peach for the whole room , and a pink carnation for the accent wall :) Thanks so much for your reply.
Posted @ Thursday, October 20, 2011 4:45 AM by Neha
please help. I am just about to change my entire bedroom this week, new wardrobes (white), new bed, new dressing table.I have been with my partner for two years we have had a rocky time due to outside forces and internal hang up but we have sorted a lot of stuff out and starting again (i also have 2 kids from my previous marriage), this is the first time in the 2 years his stuff is in the bedroom as he had a closet outside the bedroom. I want to make a fresh start for us, happiness and passion. but im not keen on pastel pinks!!! what colour can i do the room? I was think ing of adding red or purple would this be a good or bad move? 
Posted @ Sunday, October 23, 2011 3:54 AM by sue walker
Light blues and light greens are positive colors for a bedroom as well as small accent colors of red. Green represents tranquility, hope and freshness as seen in spring growth or that of a new plant or leaf. Keep in mind that the entire bedroom does not need to be painted this color, it could be just one wall and the rest remain neutral. I advise against the red or purple colors for the bedroom.

Hi Ken, 
I am a single woman, in a relationship. But our relationship is not as good as before. Try to let go but can't at last. Hope to get better relationship in future. 
I would like to have peach blosson luck also. What colour will you recommend for my room? Peach?
Posted @ Thursday, October 27, 2011 2:00 AM by vi
Vi, for peach blossom luck, it is recommended that you paint one or all the walls a lighter peach color. Keep in mind that if you marry, you will want to paint your bedroom a different color.

Hi Ken,  
I recently read your blog and find it really informative. I have a dilemma that i hope you can help with. I've recently moved into a house a few months ago with new housemates. I'm still feeling unsettled and don't sleep well (it's 3am right now). I need to buy new bed sheets and was wondering what colours would be good for a restful and calm sleep. Black is my first choice, but i could also do olive greenn, cream or a light eggplant colour. The rest of the room is white and grey and my bed is black. I noticed no one has mentioned black for bedroom so i want to make sure I'm not setting myself for more anxiety and restless sleep. Thanks in advance!
Posted @ Wednesday, November 30, 2011 9:12 PM by Sapna
I personally would recommend an olive green or cream based on the options you provided for bed sheets. Keep things light and calming.
Posted @ Monday, December 12, 2011 9:43 PM by Ken Lauher
I am unable to conceive & was deciding to change the setup of my room wondering if it would help. What paint colours would you suggest for my bedroom. Thanks

I'm looking for the best color for my bedroom.I want to have a good place for makin love and my husband and I have a problem too.Insomnia. 
I read many things about it but every site has different idea for it. could you please help me? 
thank you so much
Posted @ Thursday, March 01, 2012 2:54 AM by mahsa
Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I might consider a light green for your bedroom. Regarding Insomnia, it could be how your bed is positioned and how other items are organized in your space. The best way would be to schedule a 20 minute consultation so that you can send me photos and we can discuss it. Visit http://www.kenlauher.com/consulting-services/ to learn more. This can be done regardless of where you live.

I have a purple and white theme in my bedroom, can u let me know if this is good for a relationship. I am seperated for a very long time and would love to be in a relationship.
Posted @ Monday, March 19, 2012 4:56 AM by Sheila
Thank you for your question. A deep or dark purple is not advisable for the bedroom. A light lavender would be more favorable. A true purple is said that it is so red it is purple. Thus being an active color. As a result, I typically don't recommend a purple bedroom color. I would consider a light lavender or light green. And keep in mind that you could have one accent wall in color rather than feeling you have to paint the entire room the same color.
Posted @ Monday, March 19, 2012 4:44 PM by Ken Lauher
Hi Ken, I am amazed at your responses to all the concerns. You are very good.It definitely very helpful. I have a question too. Right now My relationship with my husband is not so smooth. We have light blue color in our bedroom. What else would you suggest to add for a romance back in my life. Thanks in advance. I am going to regularly read your blog now on its so informative. :)

Dear Mr. Lauher, 
My husband and I are excitingly finishing the final steps for a vacation home in Southern Italy(very very hot in the summer..The Southern Italians fiesta between 13:00-15:00)). Our floors(being done tomorrow) are a beautiful terracotta stone, the kitchen walls consist of an offwhite stone, and the entire construction of the home is of the natural stone of Southern Italy. The driveway to the home is between olive trees. We are quite blessed and thankful! Since my husband's element is Water, mine Fire, and our daughter's Earth(she will be visiting eventually), I am undecided about the color for the living/dining room walls. My husband emailed the five color choices: Eggshell white, brown egg, an ochre brown, a rust, and a light cinammon. Which color would be appropriate for our fire, water and earth energies? I am leaning towards cinnamon for the bedroom. Thank you in advance for responding. *Also, a pool dug out has already occurred in the Southeast section of the garden. Since that is the Wood section, what Fengshui element should I apply to balance?
Posted @ Wednesday, May 30, 2012 4:21 PM by Anna
Anna, very exciting to hear about your vacation home in the final phases of completion. Sounds like a fabulous place. 
Out of the color choices, light cinnamon feels best for you and your family in that living room area. I would consider a lighter color for the bedroom. 
Water produces the wood element. So I'm not sure why you would want to apply any additional items for balance. I might add some plants around the pool area but should be great. 
Posted @ Wednesday, May 30, 2012 4:54 PM by Ken Lauher
You are more than welcome. First off, let me say that I'm sorry to hear that you've hit a rough patch in your relationship. The good news is that you're not the first and there are simple things you can do for improvement. Take a look at the articles I've written about relationships here. http://www.kenlauher.com/feng-shui-tips/?Tag=Relationships. I would also take a look at your relationship corner in your bedroom. When standing in the door way looking in to the bedroom, what is in the back right corner? 
To get help with this and have a custom action plan to help you get back on track, you may consider a Feng Shui consultation, even a 20 minute phone consult would help with the evaluation of your bedroom.

the outside of my workplace is peach and the outside of my flat is also peach, will it bring infidelity as i can see many bad changes in my guy
Posted @ Thursday, June 28, 2012 7:37 AM by mel
The outside of your workplace should not be impacting your significant other. The outside of your flat could have an impact. Although, I'm thinking that there may be something else going on that could be adding fuel to the fire. My recommendation would be to either consider a full consult such as the Ultimate Feng Shui Makeover Package or a 20 minute call to review your bedroom and another room so that we can discuss your specific space and provide you with recommendations.

The best thing to do is consider a one-on-one consultation to help you get your apartment set up the correct way to meet your goals. This will enable you to send pictures of your new apartment so that we can tailor a plan specifically for you, your apartment and your goals.

I have been in a relationship with my boyfriend for 5 years and would like to get married soon. What would be some things I can do to my room to enhance this and speed up the process. Currently I have dark purple and lavender sheets and have some pink candles on the SW corner of my room. I am not able to paint my walls because I live in a apartment complex that does not allow it.  
Please help.  
thank you 
Posted @ Wednesday, November 28, 2012 11:09 AM by Karen
Thanks for the note and comment. There are some simple things that can be done to speed up the marriage process. However, many of them are tailored to the specific person and are shared in 1-on-1 consultations. Visit http://www.kenlauher.com/ultimate-feng-shui-makeover-package/ to learn more because it is not always about the bedroom.

Posted @ Thursday, June 06, 2013 10:08 AM by Maribel
Maribel, As you may have seen, I offer a special report that outlines the colors for each area. Review the above article and towards the bottom, you can see where you can learn more about my special color report. 
For the kitchen, the color should typically be neutral or white as the color should be represented in the food and not in the colors of the kitchen.

Ken, please help me if you can, and sorry for long, long description… 
Me and my husbands bedroom is in the Travel and helpful area of bagua -suitable colors grey and silver - which I don't like in any area . This is ravel area, we love o travel, but grey and silver are just not our colors.  
Our bed is chocolate brown and the wall behind it, is in the same color (head bead and wall are on 160 degrees South – so when we wake up, we face North, and East is on our left side.). 
On the North wall, we face, we have lovely photo paper all over that wall representing peaceful wooden patio and the big blue ocean and blue sky.  
Our celling, East and West walls are pale yellow color, very relaxing.  
Terrace door are on the east side, and entrance door to this room are on west side.  
We have decorations as figures of couples, wooden or clay, some of our photos, no mirrors. One bamboo chair in the North-West corner, and our dog’s bed on West wall.  
This is our new apartment, an since moving in 2 years ago we, are having lots od marriage problems - before it was all ok. Any tips how to better feng shui this room? I would be grateful for some help… 
Posted @ Sunday, May 11, 2014 9:08 AM by Jana
Just because the bedroom is in a certain section, does not mean you have to paint it silver, etc. 
I would focus on soothing, relaxing colors such as light blue, light green, etc. 
A chocolate color back wall is not recommended.  
The bedroom is a very important part but it there is usually a theme that is very telling about your situation. Meaning that there is probably 7 to 8 different things all leading to challenges with the relationship. The best thing to do is to consider a 1-on-1 consultation. That way you can send me pictures of your apartment and we can discuss the entire space and how to optimize it for a loving, supportive and sexy marriage.
