Decorating with basic rules of Feng Shui
Renew your home with the principles of Feng Shui
You don't have to be a fan of Chinese philosophy to understand and apply some Feng Shui principles in your home for better energy flow or just to feel better these days we all spend at home.
Our front door is the gateway through which energy enters our home. Always keep the surrounding area clean, don't leave things that don't necessarily need to be there. Brightness is also important, no burnt out bulbs and dark spots.
Place hand-made mats-passports , thin, non-slip, preferably in bright colors and easy to clean.
Choose jute rugs that have style and durability.
We are visual beings and therefore colors can affect our mood and awaken our senses immediately. So they can be used strategically in the space to inspire and support the healing of the mind and spirit.
Below you will find some suggestions of colors and their properties but remember the intention counts and always try to feel what suits you and what makes you feel good, no matter if this sometimes goes against the "rules".
Shades of blue and green
They relate to the energy of wood and promote healing, growth and new beginnings. These colors tune us to the elements of nature, imagine lying on the lawn and looking at the leaves of the trees and the blue sky, you want to transfer this energy to your space. Dare to combine these colors in throws, cushions and decorations. Don't forget the plants that help clean the air we breathe and naturally beautify the space.
Earth colors, brown, yellow, and beige
Think about the earth and how the soil nourishes and nourishes the plants and trees. So when we need support, grounding and care, we choose fabrics from natural materials whose origin we know and we are sure that they have been manufactured in ethical ways. A beige throw with a soft texture made of 100% cotton that will fall softly on your sofa can become the perfect canvas to create a sense of peace and well-being. Add decorative pillows in Aztec motifs or floral designs, in the shades we mentioned above and... your oasis is ready.
Rest and renewal is the goal when it is the turn of the room. Some of the recommended colors to achieve our goal are the following: Blue or aqua and light shades of green for refreshing sleep.
