Feng Shui Colors - Meaning
The Chinese word for wind is 'Feng' and the word 'Shui' is for water so the direct translation of Feng-shui is wind-water. Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art relating to how we can live in harmony with our surroundings. A compass is used to determine the best location for homes, graveyards and places of worship. Each point on the compass relates to an element: Wind, Earth, Metal, Fire and Water. Each element has specific colors associated with it.

Feng Shui Colors - Quote
The following quote is taken from the book Chinese Sketches by Herbert Allen Giles (1845 1935). Herbert Giles was a famous Sinologist (Sinology - The study of China and items related to China)

"The Feng-shui of a house influences not only the pecuniary fortunes of its inmates, but determines their general happiness and longevity. There was a room in the British Legation at Peking in which two persons died with no great interval of time between each event; and subsequently one of the students lay there in articulo mortis for many days. The Chinese then pointed out that a tall chimney had been built opposite the door leading into this room, thereby vitiating the Feng-shui, and making the place uninhabitable by mortal man."
