Feng shui, literally translated as "wind and water," is a 5,000-year-old Chinese system and theory based on a set of universal principles and laws of nature, applied to our living environment. These principles are believed by many to help us attain happiness, health, prosperity and freedom. While feng shui has no detailed scientifically proven studies to back up its principles, hundreds of feng shui masters stand by their results.
In feng shui speak, your front door is called the "mouth of chi." Help bring good energy into your home by keeping it clean and well lit. Remove all clutter from inside your front door so you don't block that good energy.
Painting your front door green is said to bring growth; red can bring wealth; blue, relaxation; and brown, stability. And as even those who don't practice feng shui know, the relatively simple project of painting your front door a new color can change your mood.
