COLORS: Reds, Orange, Purples,Bright Yellow.
RED is hot, passionate, rich and celebratory! Red signifies luck and happiness in China and is the marriage color in India. Bright reds used too much can bring restlessness, bursts of anger and over stimulation. Brownish reds offer a feeling of luxury and enveloping peace.
ORANGE is often called the "social" color, as it creates energy to promote lively conversations and good times. It's best to use this fire element to accessorize so freely bring this color into your living room and even try a group of pumpkins on your dining table!
