Feng shui is the ancient Chinese practice of arranging your environment to attract peace and harmony. The feng shui principles of your home are based on the balance of the five elements, (wood, fire, water, earth, and metal), as well as the direction your home faces (south, east, north, and west.) The front door is considered to be the most importance aspect of your home’s feng shui, as it determines the quality of energy entering your home. The most auspicious color of your door is based on the direction your home is facing. Whether you are selling your home or are just ready for a new paint job, whip out your compass and check out these colors for good fortune:

 

East Facing Door 

The feng shui element of the east is wood. If you have an east facing door you should gravitate towards earthy tones like green or brown.

 

South Facing Door

The feng shui element of the south is fire. The best colors for your door are red, bright orange, or a strong magenta.

 

West Facing Door

The feng shui element of the west is metal. Your door will bring you the most fortune and balance if it is painted in metallic colors such as gray or white.

 

North Facing Door

The feng shui element of the north is water. Choose cool blues and greens for a north facing front door.
