MADE IN SHADE It s worth considering your personality and state of health before pulling out the paint charts. Being midway between cool and warm, green promotes balance, making it excellent for rest and relaxation. It s thought to support the heart. If you want more passion in your life, add a splash of red or rich burgundy to your boudoir. On a cautionary note, if anger or high blood pressure is an issue you may need to tone it down. Alternatively, to regain equilibrium after an accident or emotional trauma, surround yourself with orange, known as nature s shock absorber. Bright, primary colours may appeal to kids, but they can overstimulate the mind, and in bedrooms that could spell trouble. FENG SHUI jennyblumefengshui.com OFTEN we don't leave our comfort zones when it comes to home decorating. So wall colours, furniture and accessories are simply pale tan or plain white. But colours are powerful and can really jazz up any home. Whether it means paint- ing a bright feature wall or adding a few colourful fur- nishings, colour goes a long way, aesthetically as well as bringing in good energy, Sydney feng shui consultant and interior designer Jenny Blume says. ''Colour can affect us in powerful ways, both con- sciously and on a deeper level as well,'' she said. ''Adding a warm hue like yellow or orange to a dark room can bring it to life, while cooler colours can be used to tone down bright, glary rooms. ''Along with balancing the natural light within a space, different hues can affect our moods and well- being. A room's colour should not only please the eye, it should work on a therapeutic level as well.'' Ms Blume organises feng shui workshops.
