In Poe's work "The Masque of the Red Death what do the seven rooms symbolize?

Blue - Birth Purple - Royalty, Power Green - Growth & life Orange - Distruction or Fire White - Purity Violet - Knowledge & memory Black - Death

More likley they syblolize the 7 stages of life, like blue meaning birth, green meaning the growing stages, orange could symbolize "highnoon" as in the peek of one's life, violet meaning the aged have great knowledge, and black meaning death.

I need info on the blueprints of the 7 rooms, if anyone could help me out with that, please write me!
