Colours like the elements they are associated with, are also identified to specific sectors
and directions. A simple combination of colours can also be equate to a combination of the
elements these colours are asociated with. Thus , a simple combination of say, red and yellow
is equivalent to fire and earth , which is a productive sequence. On the other hand a combination of
yellow and black which is equivalent to earth and water
is inauspicious as earth is deemed to destroy the water , a destructive sequence.
A specific colour when applied to the sector housing the element which is associated with that colour,
is also considered auspicious as this is known as the ‘agreeing’ sequence . Similarly, when a specific
colour is applied to a sector housing the element
which will result in the sector’s element to grow - example when white is applied to
north (water), this sector is now deemed to have been enhanced , as metal when melted down
becomes liquid and emits vapors (water), such as in metal produces water a productive sequence.
On the same score, when a certain colour is applied to a sector housing an opposing element a
destructive sequence is created - for example , when metallic or white colour is applied to the east ,
thus bringing metal into wood , where the
metal cuts down or destroys the wood .
Thus the colours that you choose should always be in an agreeing or growing sequence
While a proper colour or a combination of colours will enhance the Feng Shui, on the contrary
a wrong choice or blend of colours can bring about misfortunes or setbacks.
Therefore it is imperative to ensure a proper colour or combination of colours are chosen before
being applied to the premises.

According to Feng Shui perspectives, white is the mother of all colours and is
also one of the main colour for toning and reducing the shades of all other colours. Thus white is sometimes known as the beginning of all colours while black on the other hand, is the terminal colour of all colours.
In the study of energy , colour is the reflection of light and energy, and where
there is no light, there being no visible colour. And without light, everything
will be Dark, which is represented by black. Black is therefore another basic
component for mixing, blending and toning of all other colours. As such these 2
colours are the origin of all colours where white is considered Yang and black
