In Feng Shui, each color brings a different quality of energy. Mastering feng shui color use will give you powerful feng shui tools in creating a better environment. Gray color is usually treated either as boring (dull gray!) or as a sophisticated, upscale feng shui color (noble gray.)

Feng Shui-wise, Gray color belongs to the element of Metal and it is best used in the following feng shui Ba-Gua areas: West (Creativity & Children), Northwest (Helpful People & Blessings) or North (Career & Path in Life)

Avoid a strong Gray color presence in the feng shui areas of East and Southeast of your space, as both of these areas have Wood as the main feng shui element, and Gray color, being Metal, destroys the Wood.

Warm, silvery Gray color can bring a beautiful, clear and centering feng shui energy into your living room, main entry or home office. Avoid the feng shui use of color gray in big proportions in any of your bedrooms - either your own, your children's, or the older parents' bedroom.

Overall, Gray is a color that is best used as an accent color in feng shui, as it brings a crisp, sharp energy that can enliven and "clear" any given space.

Sharp, clear, and reflective are the feng shui energy properties of the Metal element, and Gray color fully expresses these qualities.
