Colors of water, like different shades of blue also work well for rooms located on the eastern side. Using appropriate colors for the eastern side of the room helps attract wealth.
Metal to white: Just like the east, rooms located on the western side deal with the creative energy force and colors that are best suited to nurture creativity range in the shades of white or light whitish metallic. These colors correspond with the Feng Shui element of metal and help boost the force of creation.
Blue and black: The northern side of the house deals with career and the best colors for career are the bold colors of blue and black. These colors are strong and aggressive and add a deterministic energy to the room thus giving birth to a strong will which is very sought after quality when it comes to career building.
Shades of red: The south wing of the house deals with reputation and social fame. The best colors that create the energy to maintain social integrity and likeability are that of red. Play around with different shades of red to see which one suits your life the best.
