Importance of Colours in Vastu Shastra for Healing, Intelligence and Better Relationship

Colours hold immense powers in Vastu Shastra. Sometimes, we all feel low for no reason. Our favourite food doesn’t taste as good as it used to and our favourite hobbies annoy us. We may chalk it up to a bad day or just circumstances or stress, but that is not always the case.

During his research on significance of colours in Vastu Shastra, Dr. Khushdeep Bansal discovered that the colours around us have the power to make or break our day. They can transform our state of mind; from fear to confidence and from delusion to wakefulness. Each of the colours we choose has its unique nature that has a direct effect on different aspects of our life.

Healing Colours

Healing colours have a refreshing and rejuvenating nature. This palette includes shades of green and warm earth colours. Apply these colours in the North-North-East (NNE) Direction at home to boost immunity and healing properties of medicines.

Intellectual Colours

Colours that help develop sharp wit and uniqueness with a warm and gentle outlook are considered intellectual colours. Some shades of blue, red and grey can all be utilized at home to receive the desired intellectual effect. They increase creativity and practice of knowledge when put in the West-South-West Zone at home (Education and Savings). These colours also inherently command respect. Libraries and art galleries can be coated with these colour palettes to improve their uniqueness and attract the right intellect.

Romantic Colours

Red is the colour of passion and lust and is considered to be the most romantic colour of all. It ignites a spark in a couple’s relationship when used in small proportions in their North-North-West (NNW) Bedroom, less intense and softer tone of red is more conducive to romance. When used in bedrooms located in the South-South-East (SSE) Zone of your house. Some less intense shades of orange, purple and pink are also romantic colours, signifying purity and innocence.

Nurturing Colours

Shades of green and yellow bring a sense of peace and well-being. When green colour is used in the East and yellow in the South-West (SW) MahaVastu Zones, they foster interesting and open conversation amongst family and friends. They also help to dispel loneliness and depression and nurture holistic well-being.

Colours full of Life Force

Green, blue and bluish-green colours have the ability to stimulate the brain and provide access to energy that inspires positivity and creative thinking. When used in the East-North-East (ENE) Vastu Zone, such colours refresh the mind and the soul. These colours are great for schools and businesses to promote positivity and creativity.


Colours play a significant role in our life. Using the right colours in their ideal MahaVastu Zones can create a positive, happy and blissful energy that brings cheer to life. It is not difficult to utilize colours for achieving the desired results or outcomes. However, it can become complicated when accounting for interrelationships, reactivity and energy levels of different colours. A trained MahaVastu Advisor can assist you in applying the right colours at your home with  the help of color tapes, certain idols and statues and at times, with changing the colors of the walls, to generate wealth, instill peace and maintain well-being at home.
