Avoid these colours:
Prefer lighter shades over darker tones because these aren't suitable to everyone. Especially, red, yellow or orange, since, these colours represents the fiery planets likes Rahu, Shani, Mars and Sun.
Positive surroundings and good vibes have the maximum contribution to the success of individuals. Though most of the people curse their stars for his or her discontent and unhappiness; there are other forces working towards your unsuccessful life, mental stress and bad health. That is going against the Vastu principles. Colour therapy is one cure for the same.
As per Astrology/Numerology, using this suggested colour therapy, one should not use colours which belong to malefic planets in one's horoscope. Only those colours should be used which belongs to favourable planets or represent your luck/life path number.
So, observe use of favourable colours and consider the Vastu-suggested colours for various directions.
