VAASTU COLOURS FOR INTERIORS OF HOUSE

THE EFFECTS OF COLOURS ON HUMANS:
Sunlight consists of seven colours namely : Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet. Each of these colours, governs a particular area of your body and so affects you differently- emotionally, physically and mentally. Colours have the capacity of pacifying your mind and stimulating your energy. Your mood, health, happiness are all affected by the colours around you. 


Here are the effects of different colours on you:

  • RED: represents power, valor, vitality and zest. It is a warm colour and enlightens your mood the moment you look at it. It ignites passion and desire and creates excitement and enthusiasm for life.
  • ORANGE: Orange color inspires spirituality and has the ability to stimulate your appetite. It enhances communication, positive feelings, cheerfulness and interaction.
  • YELLOW: Yellow is associated with the Sun and so is a very bright and energizing color. It nurtures clarity of mind and natural alertness. Yellow also gives a sense of patience and wisdom.
  • WHITE: White symbolizes purity. It also reflects light and brightens the room.
  • GREEN: Green represents harmony and peace. It is a symbol of nature and so it generates calm and inner peace in the house.
  • BLUE: Blue inspires courage. It also represents nature (the colour of sky and water)and hence has a calming effect on you.
  • PINK: Pink color reflects joy, happiness and pure feelings, essential for a happy life.
VAASTU COLOURS PRESCRIBED FOR THE INTERIORS OF A HOUSE:
Colours play a very important role as people respond to the energy of colours around them, either positively or negatively. Preferrably, colours in your surroundings should be subtle and pleasant and not be very bright and stimulating. In Vaastu Shastra, different colours have been prescribed for each room. The specific colours to be used in each room of the house in order to enhance the atmosphere and functionality of the specific room has been listed here:
  • PRAYER ROOM/MEDITATION: Yellow or sandal-coloured walls are just perfect for the prayer room due to their ability to inspire intellectual clarity. Sober, subdued colours like blue, green, yellow or red encourage deep concentration.
  •  BEDROOM : Pink is the ideal colour for the master bedroom and the secondary colours can be light green and light blue. However, red should not be used in the Bedroom, as it is too energizing, overpowering and stressful. Yellow is fine for the elderly. But dark blue should be avoided as it brings gloominess.
  • STUDY ROOM/CHILDREN'S BEDROOM: which is used by young children for study, green colour should be used as it encourages concenteration. For aggressive children, a blue coloured bedroom can be calming.
  • LIVING ROOM: In the Living room, bright colours, shades, and patterns can be used as it is the place to entertain guests and so it should be lively and conducive for pleasant conversations. The best colours are yellow, beige/tan, green or blue.
  • DINING ROOM: In the Dining room, Orange is the best color as it has the ability to stimulate the appetite. Peach colour can also be used. Secondary colours can be pinks, greens, and blues. Avoid black or white or a mixture of black and white as these colours do not stimulate eating.


  • KITCHEN: For the kitchen, white is the best colour as it brightens the space. Besides it is also the colour of purity and cleanliness.
  • LIBRARY: The best colour, however, depends on the type of books that the residents like to read. If they prefer serious books, brown is an appropriate shade. For less serious readers, pale blue, light green or pink are good.
  • BATH ROOM: The ideal colour is white or a mixture of black and white or gray. Pink and other pastel colours are also good.
