Best Decor Colors: All sandy and earthy colors (Earth) and white and gray (Metal).
Decor Colors To Minimize: Red, orange, purple, strong yellow, magenta and pink (Fire), as well as blue and black (Water).
Decor Items To Emphasize: Metal features (e.g. metal staircase or sculptures), decor items made from metal (art or photo frames), as well earthenware decor, crystals, rocks and earth related images.
