New year, new positive vibes! We’ve all heard of feng shui and the good things it can do, and one way to manifest its good energy is to work these feng shui-approved colours into your living space.

Azure Blue

With 2023 being the year of the Water Rabbit, feng shui experts have predicted that Azure Blue or shades of blue depicting the sky or water forms allow fortune to flow in abundance. Seen in this HDB executive maisonette (top image), refreshing layers of blue have been used by Third Avenue Studio as the main accent colour for the walls and cabinetry.

Connected to the water element in the feng shui five-element theory, pink is a nurturing colour associated with love and kindness. Go for a bold streak of Fuchsia Pink for a standout feature wall, and to promote emotional balance and well-being at home according to feng shui predictions.

In feng shui, green represents growth, renewal and vitality. That’s why this verdant hue is often used in spaces to attract these rejuvenating qualities. As Nippon Paint’s Colour of the Year, Dark Green offers a gently uplifting environment that pairs well with neutral or nature-inspired elements.

Symbolising luck and prosperity, red is a strong colour that attracts wealth and abundance. While vivid red is usually preferred for areas of high energy like the living area, rocking an autumn-inspired shade of red can totally change the mood.
