Front Door Colors and Feng Shui


Floyd’s new front door is in!!!

(It still needs the doorbell, which is a very old turn ringer-see below-and part of the reason I love Floyd)


People often ask me about front door color; what color they should paint the door? My answer- whatever color you like! In reality, the front door’s location is far more important than the color. 

Red doors do not necessarily bring you wealth any more than purple or green doors. If the green door is in an area where the color green is relevant, for example, maybe slightly helpful. Unless you know your best directions according to your gua number (my husband, daughter and I happen all to be west gua 8) then the color isn’t going to save you or your wealth gua.

If you want to learn your directions, you can go back to my post Are You East or West?, or you can just paint the door any color you fancy.

Notice the first pic is without lights, the second with lights on- look how different the light makes the same door!

Does Artwork Create a Bad Feng Shui Situation?


One of the many Feng Shui classes I’ve taken warned us about artwork creating a bad Feng Shui situation. No headless people, no single self Portraits(especially if you want a relationship) and avoid abstract art.

I’ve since learned that having art you love does not create bad Feng Shui… unless it’s artwork of you on a killing spree!

The important thing about art is to have art you really love; not putting up pieces people gave you because you feel you have to. 

Full disclosure: The art you choose to display does reveal plenty to the Feng Shui master about your personality and, subsequently, potential challenges you may face during your life. 

The exception to hanging art is to avoid putting things directly over your head where you sleep. The more active the art, the less restful sleep you may experience. Crashing waves and oceans could make for a restless night. 

The street art above is in the town of Carlisle, PA. Get your wings!
