How to decorate a feng shui bedroom with the color salmon

Serenity and comfort can be experienced in a feng shui bedroom design. Decorating a feng shui bedroom with the colour salmon can be a calming and relaxing way to create a warm and welcoming bedroom style. Interior decorating trends in the feng shui motif require the incorporation of Asian elements and modern decor into the bedroom design. The colour salmon can be used to bring visual interest into this important room in your Asian-inspired home.

Paint the entire bedroom a soft salmon colour. Since salmon is not a boisterous or dominant colour, it can be used on the walls in a feng shui bedroom to create warmth in the room. For the best results, choose a shade of salmon that has a hint of rust or peach in its composition. Avoid using shades of salmon that have a noticeable pink hue. If the bedroom is small, you can paint one wall a salmon colour and leave the other walls white or off-white. Select a salmon-coloured wall paint that has a flat or satin paint texture; avoid high-gloss shines.

Select bedroom furniture that incorporates an Asian-inspired theme into the room. Choose natural brown wood tones that complement the peachy hue in salmon. Avoid furniture that has light oak, maple or pine stains that tend to wash out and decrease the visual impact of the colour salmon. For a strong feng shui theme, use black furniture with Asian etchings and hardware to create comfort and harmony in the room. Select pieces of furniture that have a modern, global appeal.

Incorporate the natural botanical world into the room. Add a peaceful water fountain with salmon-coloured stones, several colourful Asian plants with salmon-hued blooms and an assortment of bamboo artefacts into the design of the room. Feng shui has a spalike vibe that introduces the warm and seducing elements of the outdoors into the interior living space. Use bamboo, greenery and attractive flowering plants in the room design. Place these feng shui salmon-coloured botanical accents on a dresser, accent table or floor area.

Add salmon bedding and decorative accents to the room design. Choose window treatments with wrought iron or bamboo curtain rods and salmon-coloured silky fabrics. The luxury of the feng shui design blends traditional Asia style with modern romanticism. The colour salmon can be incorporated into the comforter and bedding, throw pillows, throw rugs, wall art, table decorations, lamps and decorative candles. These Asian-inspired decorative accents will bring the warmth of salmon into the overall room design.


Paint light fixtures and accent pieces of furniture with salmon paint colours. Use a variety of salmon-coloured accent pieces to add eye-appeal to the bedroom design.


Avoid using salmon-coloured wall-to-wall carpet in the bedroom. Choose neutral-coloured carpet or natural wood flooring for the room.
