1. EAST Door (Compass Reading from 67.5 to 112.5)

The feng shui element of the East is Wood, so if your front door is facing East, you best choices are the Wood element colours which are colours green and brown.

3. SOUTH Door(Compass Reading from 157.5 to 202.5)

South is the only direction with the Fire feng shui element, so the classical, and most auspicious feng shui colour for a South facing front door is the red colour. Other feng shui Fire element colours that are good for your South facing door are strong yellow, purple, orange and strong pink/magenta. As some of these colours might not work with your house exterior, are there any other good feng shui colour choices? Yes, of course! Read more

4. SOUTHWEST Door (Compass Reading from 202.5 to 247.5)

The feng shui element of Southwest direction is Earth, and the energy associated with a Southwest door is maternal energy, as well as the energy of love & marriage. So, how does that determine the best feng shui colours for your Southwest facing front door? You would choose a colour of the Earth element - which are all earthy/sandy colours, or go for a colour of a feng shui element that nourished the Earth (the only element that nourishes Earth is Fire). You will also be careful not to choose a colour that weakens the Earth element of the Southwest. Read more
