The Open Plan Living Room is the largest room and therefore, covers the majority of the floor area. It is not possible to use the Life Aspirations Formula. This formula divides the whole floor area into eight sectors. Each sector has different properties. It is difficult to apply this formula to a room that covers a number of different sectors as it would be full of contradictions.
Therefore, the best way Feng Shui can recommend the colour of the room is to use the Eight Mansions Formula. This formula gives a person a Kua number based on your date of birth. An automated system with this link. Just put in your month and year of birth.
A person with each Kua number has an element which has an element which is related to a particular colour.
|Your Kua number||Element||Preferred colour|
|2||Yang Earth||Dark Yellow or Ochre|
|3||Yin Wood||Light Green|
|4||Yang Wood||Dark Green|
|5 male||Yang Earth||Dark Yellow, Orche|
|5 female||Yin Earth||Light Yellow|
|6||Yang Metal||Dark Red, Black or Silver|
|8||Yin Earth||Yellow or Beige|
|9||Fire||Red or Purple|
