Hi Jessica,
Our kitchen is in the north area and we have chosen dark brown cabinets is that ok or we should change please help.....

Hi S,

It is definitely okay to have dark brown cabinets. Just make sure to add the appropriate colors and accents based on the feng shui bagua for optimal results. For instance, if your kitchen is in the Fame/Reputation area of the feng shui bagua, add appropriate enhancements like lighting, candles and the color red.

If the cabinets are dark brown wood, they actually work in your favor since "wood feeds fire" according to the five elements of feng shui. Just make sure to compensate for the dark with lots of light (sunlight preferably).

Be well,

What is right is always in our deepest heart of hearts. It is from the deepest part of our hearts that we are capable of reaching out and touching another human being. It is, after all, one heart touching another heart."
