Vastu and Colors


Colors pacify our mind and stimulate energy. The colors have significant effect on our mood, health and happiness. The impact of colors on us is emotional, intellectual, materialistic, physical and intuitive.

The right choice of color helps us in enhancing the flow of energy in the house. Here are some Vastu guidelines, which will help you to pick the right Vastu colors for every room of your house.

Directions and Colors

Colors are based on directions represented by various planets. For example, north rooms of a house, represented by the planet ‘Mercury’ can be painted in light shades of green as the green is representative color of Mercury. The colors of the planets govern directions as follows

 Direction  Planet  Color
 East  Sun  White
 West  Saturn  Blue
 North  Mercury  Green
 South  Mars  Pink, Coral Red
 North-East  Jupiter  Tone of yellows, Cream
 South-West  Rahu   All Greens
 South-East  Venus  Silver White
 North-West  Moon  White


Vastu colours

Impact of Colors

Colors inspire our emotions and behavior. These have great impact on our life. The following colors are considered auspicious for the enhancement of ‘Vastu’ of a building. 

Red: It symbolizes bravery and power.  It’s dramatic, emotional and active. It should not be used in bedrooms because of its energizing quality. It can also be stressful for those who are nervous.

Orange: This color inspires spirituality and power. It encourages positive feeling, happiness, joy and good social relationship. Peach color can also be used as it is a cool color. 

Green: It represents nature, hope, freshness. It brings harmony, quick healing, good and healthy environment to the room. Most of the hospitals are using this color because of its quick healing quality. Green color is good for study room as it rejuvenate the ideas. 

Yellow: It gives a sense of patience and wisdom.  It represents sunlight which symbolizes power. If a room gets direct sunlight, do not paint the walls with yellow color. For ’Pooja’ room, yellow color is perfect.

Blue: It symbolizes spring, new growth and relaxation. This is cool color can be used for bedrooms or meditation room.
Purple: This color inspires faith, respect and trust. Never paint entire room in purple color as it may be overpowering. However a light purple color can be used for a calming environment.

White: it’s an elegant color and looks good when combined with other colors. White ceilings are suggested by most of the people as it reflects the light and brightens the room. This color can be used in north-west bedroom.

Pink:This color represents joy, happiness and pure feeling. It can be used in master bedroom and bedrooms in the South and Southwest.

Black: it indicates lack of hope and confidence. It gives us depressed and tensed feel. Avoid black and gray color in house as these may cause frustration and hopelessness.


Choosing the Paint Color according to Vastu

Bedroom :  Pink is an auspicious color for bedroom. Light blue and light green are also good for bedroom. Choose green color for children’s bedroom because it can helps in study of children.

Living Room:  Yellow, blue, green, tan and beige are best colors for living room as these colors are pleasant for guests.

Kitchen:  The white is the best color for kitchen. Yellow, orange, rose pink, chocolate and red colors are also good colors for kitchen.

Bathroom: It can be of white or a mix of black and white or gray colors. Pink and other pastel colors are also good.

Dining Room: The Pink, green and blue colors are good for dining room as this place needs to be painted in refreshing colors for the family eats and entertains there. Avoid black and white or mixture of black and white in the room.

Sorry to say but there is lots of changes in astrology and Vaastu colour. Planets colour should be as it is in Vaastu. I think you have to take care of it.

The color combination is totally different from Feng Shui colors. In Feng Shui, North is for Blue or Black, South is for Red Centre is for Yellow etc,. In my field experience I found Feng Shui color combination better for happy living.

I am very happy to select my living room color from your website. I think compare to other website where they confuse the people , your wesite charts are giving correct directions to everyone.
i am staying in rent a flat where I do not want to spend some money for vastu but trying to use as much as possible.
I am sure when I will build my own home I will consult you.

All the best & keep it up !
