We are already in the second half of 2015, but it’s not yet too late to do some changes in your home’s decorations to welcome wealth, happiness and harmony into your home this year of the Wooden Sheep. And what better way to do this than through Feng Shui, right?
What exactly is Feng Shui?
This is the art and science of organizing space to maximize good ‘chi’ or the positive energy. Feng Shui is based on the idea that the home is a reflection of what is happening inside us, so its purpose is to create a harmonious environment that not only boosts positive energy but also leads to a better life in general.
Although the process is a bit complex, especially for the higher Feng Shui levels, you can always start off with the basics. So, provided here are some tips for your next home interior design.
Get Rid of All the Clutter
This is one of the fundamentals of a harmonious home, whether or not you are into Feng Shui. Come to think of it, how could a home be conducive for living if it is not clutter-free? The clutter does not only block the flow of positive energy, but it also gives you a constrictive feeling. Thus, keep only the bare essentials so that your home can easily “breathe.” Also, repair or replace anything that is damaged or broken. Items that bring bad memories should be also disposed.
Welcome Positive Energy…Literally!
Although the front door may not technically be an indoor structure, it is the main entryway into your home. Nothing should be blocking the way. Dead plants should be cut and any damages should be repaired. According to Feng Shui, the path leading to the entry should be curved and not straight, so that the good chi flows in and the bad energy stays out.
Additionally, you may also want to have an accent door. A blue door promotes relaxation, red is for prosperity, brown for stability, and green is for growth. Thinking of a rainbow-colored door? Well, as long as it fits your personality and home style, then you may go for it. The important thing is, it should be painted well and evenly, and should always stay clean and welcoming and most of all keeps you safe.
