Red for Valentine

I kept thinking… why red?? Why red for Valentine? Why not Pink? Blue? Green? Why red?

I believe red is the colour that signifies strength, power & passion. It is he most powerful of colours. It stands for love, blood, revolution.., now isn’t that enough power? Red presumably grabs the most attention!! Its ironically speed combined with a dash of danger. Red is vibrant, volatile & explosive.

My little knowledge of Feng Shui states that red is the colour of the element fire. It brings energy into your environment. Fire is the symbol of divine energy. It can be both destructive & constructive / creative. You need to balance the colour Red in your house. Red holds the energy of the sun & life. Chinese believe this to be the colour of love, luck, happiness & wealth. It is the sign of richness & luxury.

So I though I’ll spice up my room with the colour red… and here is what came out of it.
