It is said that colours in the house have a significant influence on the inhabitants of the house. The home is the place where a person tends to spend most his life and the different colours of the house stimulate different emotions in a person. It is of utmost importance to have the perfect balance of colours in a house to remain positive and lead a healthy life.
Vastu an ancient Indian Science of Architecture and Buildings is used in building and designing homes. This is a science of directions which uses all the five elements of nature which balances them with man and material. This helps in enhanced health, wealth and happiness of the inhabitants of the house.
