Pay attention to the direction of the house when choosing paint colors

Choose colors according to the direction of the house and coordinate light according to the theory of the five elements. The intensity of light will change the color, depending on each part of the house, the area with more or less light, and choose the appropriate paint color. Bright colors are not the optimal choice in a room with a lot of direct light. According to the Five Elements theory, the color of each direction corresponds to each element. White belongs to the Metal element (West direction), green belongs to the Wood element (East direction), blue and gray belong to the Water element (North direction), red belongs to the Fire element (South direction), yellow belongs to the Earth element (Central direction).
