Strive for a balance of elements in your home. Warm colors in shades of purple, orange, and red represent the fire element, and brown, cream, and yellow bring in the elements of metal and earth. Fire energy embodies emotions, and just the right amount can warm up a room. Earth energy grounds and stabilizes. This element may be especially important if you have rooms with high ceilings. Monochromatic rooms-all wood, all white, or all blue-stifle us and disconnect us from the richness and tapestry of life and ourselves. It’s like being at the beach with only sand or eating only iceberg lettuce as a salad. Embrace all the elements!
