Wondering what colour is best for your living room? Read on tips on Vastu colours for the living room.
According to Vastu principals, colour therapy plays a huge role in balancing our body, mind and soul. Colours bring energy into different spaces and positively influence the home and its residents. In Vastu Shastra, different colours are ideal for certain directions and rooms in your home and using the right colours can attract healing energy into your living space.
In a typical Indian household, the living room serves so many purposes, be it the entertainment room, reading room, dining room or even home office. This is one room that sees so much energy and activity throughout the day and hence it is essential to create balance. If you are designing or renovating your home, consider adding these Vastu-approved living room wall paint colours to harness positive energy:
Brown for a grounded feeling (Wood element)
Brown has become a popular choice in Vastu in recent years. It has nourishing energy that is associated with all the good things in life– the earth, delicious dark chocolate and gourmet coffee. It radiates comfort and stability. It is quite easy to incorporate brown into your existing colour palette by adding an accent wall or switching out the upholstery, carpets and drapes.
Green for healing (Wood element)
A colour that is associated with nature and Mother Earth, green is considered calming. It invokes feelings of healing and growth that is worth exploring. Using all-green in living room wall painting might be a bit overwhelming so consider adding an accent wall and incorporating some more green with plants like bamboo, lotus and aloe vera.
White for relaxation (Metal element)
When it comes to wall painting for hall, you can never go wrong with white. Simple, understated and straightforward, it has absolutely no negative effects. According to Vastu Shastra, white brings clarity, wisdom and purity.
Blue for tranquility (Water element)
Blue is often associated with tranquility and serenity and it has come to light since it is a great Vastu colour! Channel good vibes for your living room as you gather friends and family with a range of blue hues. Light or pastel shades of blue in the living room can create a cosy and serene atmosphere. However, if your living room is small, the colour can make the space feel tiny and claustrophobic. In such cases, opt for a Mediterranean inspired colour palette with a blue accent wall and all-white painted doors, windows and furniture.
Muted pink for warmth (Fire element)
This shade represents warmth and love– creating a perfect atmosphere for a tête-à-tête with a loved one. If you and your partner spend a lot of time in the living room, shades of pastel pink colour as per Vastu can not only help deepen the bond with your partner but also keep conflicts at bay.
Orange for optimism (Fire element)
When the use of the colour red is considered too intense, opt for orange instead. Orange is often referred to as a “social” colour, since it creates inspiring Vastu energy to promote lively conversations and good times in the living room. Use this colour in moderation– think accent walls, false ceilings and the likes.
