As a feng shui consultant and architect, I get so many questions about what color is best for painting walls. Color is one of the most effective ways to transform your life and space, and it goes much deeper than just changing the paint on your walls, so this episode is dedicated to the topic!

  • The most important thing to consider when choosing a color

  • The symbolism and energetics of each color

  • How to include color in ways other than painting the walls

  • Which colors to use to invite passion, protection, stability, friendship, and prosperity

  • Which colors are most relaxing and therapeutic, and which are more stimulating

  • The colors associated with each area of the bagua

  • The connection between color and the five elements

  • How color can help us be more mindful
