The New Chinese Year starts on January 25 of 2020 and, astrologically, this is the year of the Metal Rat. This year is associated with ups and downs in every aspect of life.
Feng Shui experts claim that 2020 is going to be a balanced year if we refer to the relation between the five cosmic elements of the Chinese zodiac.
What is the lucky color of 2020?
In terms of clothing, the lucky colors of 2020 are purple, blue, gray, and white. To increase luck, wear metal accessories. The lucky numbers of 2020 are 7, 3, and 2.

Health and luck depend on the colors we use to decorate the living room, a room that is extremely used in the house. In Feng Shui, the colors that are present in the living room can influence our lives and can change our fortune.
The colors used to decorate the living room need to be chosen by their significance. To increase the chances of success, for the living room it is recommended to use colors that signify all five elements, which bring five types of luck: fire – fame, water – success in career, wood – money, metal – mentors, earth – love, relationships.
The Feng Shui experts recommend us to subtly add the five elements in the living room, without disturbing the modern or classical design. For example, the living room walls can be painted in white, the couches can be gray, and the other elements can be displayed through an abstract painting containing colors such as turquoise, purple, and cream. If we don’t like paintings, we can use vases, small pillows, and decorative items in many colors symbolizing the five elements.

Blue represents the water element. This is associated with honesty, inspiration, blessing, and communication. It encourages contemplation and meditation, and it stimulates creativity. It is the representation of harmony and calm, and it is used to eliminate the states of mental tension.
Also, those who chose to wear jewelry with blue stones (or the Eye of Horus) as a talisman will be protected against any troubles and negative energies that could ruin their plans.
According to the Feng Shui principles, blue can be used best in the south-eastern area, which is associated with prosperity and wealth. Blue should be avoided on the ceiling and roof because it is considered that water, once it reaches the maximal point, starts to flow downwards and to destroy everything in its path.

Home Decorating Colors
The colors of 2020 in terms of home decor will be inspired by the sea. Therefore, blue is the center of attention, but also the green shades.
