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.
