The significance of colors

The clothing we wear every day, the jewelry, shoes and other accessories, the flowers we keep in the house and also the decorative objects, curtains, bed linen should combine and use these colors.


Blue represents the Water element. It is associated with honesty, inspiration, blessing and communication.

Water encourages contemplation and meditation and stimulates creativity. It is the representation of harmony and calm and it is used to eliminate the states of mental tension.

Also, it is good for those who chose the Water element to wear jewelry with blue stones (or Eye of Horus) as a talisman.

In this way, they will be protected against any problems and negative energies that could ruin their plans.

According to Feng Shui principles, blue can be best used in the southeastern area of the house, the area which is associated with prosperity and wealth. It is best to avoid placing blue on the ceiling and on the roof because it is considered that water, once it reaches its maximum point, starts flowing down and destroys everything that stands in its path.

You can use this color in the bathroom or at the office. Because of this color, the children who are studying in a room where blue predominates have higher performances, as many studies show.

The color blue can be used to paint walls, furniture, paintings and accessories. If you want to use it in the master bedroom or in the child’s bedroom, you can go for a marine theme. Blue facilitates restful sleep and brings a calm vibe.

Wearing colors and lucky talismans, this year you will definitely avoid negative events, and, in addition, you will look excellent by elegantly accessorizing your outfit.


The color green attracts peace, joy and understanding, being associated with rejuvenation. Feng Shui experts recommend it in the children’s bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom. It can also be used in the office because it brings prosperity.

In the children’s bedroom, you can use shades of pale green that will create a perfect ambiance for relaxation or a brighter green that will bring the room to life.

Regardless of the hue chosen, you can use it for curtains that have a floral pattern, bed linen, you can go for green chairs and shelves, wardrobe with green doors or you can paint one, or all the walls in this color or decorate them with green leaves. Because green is the color of prosperity, the room that fits best, is the kitchen.


The best colors for your house are ivory and white, because they are best suited for the optic nerve and they symbolize light, the heart of people. At the same time, white furniture is a symbol of hope. Light or white wood is also suggested because it can easily stimulate inspiration, wisdom and focus on studies.  


You can wear all the accessories in these colors. If you choose a different color for your outfit, at least add a hue in jewelry or decorative elements using one of the lucky colors for year 2021.

Stones and minerals that bring good luck in 2021

For a stronger effect, jewelry with natural stones and green crystals, green tourmaline and malachite or those with Water energy – turquoise or aquamarine are recommended. Black stones are also energy carriers in the Year of the Metal Ox – black obsidian, black tourmaline, black onyx.

Colors that are not recommended

In the year of the Ox, 2021, you shouldn’t wear these colors: orange or red, because they block the energy flow and hinder well-being.

Colors for decorating the house

In terms of house decoration, the colors of the year 2021 will have a sea theme. Therefore, blue is the center of attention, but also shades of green.

Choosing the ocean to define the colors of this year refers to fluidity of colors, depth and complexity. After all, the ocean doesn’t only have one blue color, but shades of green and calm tones.

This peaceful color palette is associated with regaining calm in times of fast change which we mentioned earlier.

Other sea-inspired hues include sandy white, deep and oxygenated black, cool green. In general, this is a color palette inspired by nature and is so varied that no one will feel restricted to a single color choice.

In conclusion, the colors of the year can be used for different materials or products, from clothes for women and man, accessories, and casual or sport bags to interior design items.
