Interior Design with Feng Shui
There are only a few houses with perfect Feng Shui. Luckily, instead of hanging a wind chime or attaching flutes to a beam, you can make simple decorative changes that look and feel more natural. These decorative items can help resolve issues such as: B. Poison darts coming from a front and back door alignment or weird windows and sloping walls.
Here are nine essential Feng Shui decorating solutions to use in your home that will look good and support your home’s Feng Shui.
Once a staple of the Victorian era, “party curtains” are curtains that can be drawn to close a room or to create or separate one area of the home from another.
They have recently returned to decorating circles and are helpful for creating privacy in a home that feels too open.
In Feng Shui, these are particularly helpful when the front door and back door are in one line. Or maybe you have a window that you can see out of when you open your front door. By hanging a parterre curtain, you can block the view and stop the rush of energy going out of your home, which can keep money going out and leave you feeling drained and tired.
This is a better way to prevent energy from seeping through the house than hanging a crystal ball from the ceiling which can look odd while the party curtain looks stylish.
This is another way to prevent energy from leaking away from the front door that is aligned with a back door or window. Screens can be added to create a corner in an open concept home. They can also be used to block a view, e.g. B. the view from the front door to the dining room. This can lead to excess bills and poor wealth accumulation.
Screens are a wonderful solution to a number of situations.
Decorative screens can also be placed behind a bed that is near a window. This helps create a false wall and gives the bedroom dwellers some footing.
A beautiful mirror is always an asset to a home. But mirrors can solve two common Feng Shui problems.
The first is a wayward column.
If you have a pillar in an open area of your home or office, it can become an obstruction or a sore thumb. Adding mirrors on all four sides can make the column visually disappear.
Mirrors are also helpful for a missing corner.
If you have an L-shaped home, you can put a mirror on a wall where that corner would have been, creating the illusion of space extending from the mirror.
Mirrors also double beautiful views and are an excellent Feng Shui device to amplify the best energy or SHENG CHI that comes from beautiful views or scenes in your home.
While vines on houses are not considered good Feng Shui, if you have a round pole awkwardly placed in your home or business, wrapping a vine around the pole will make it disappear into nature. Vines can be used both indoors and outdoors, like on those weird poles that pop up in basements.
Four poster beds
Canopies, whether attached to the bed or to the wall or ceiling, offer wonderful Feng Shui. They protect the couple in bed and are excellent focal points for the bedroom.
However, they are also ideal for fastening beams to the ceiling, sloping ceilings or coffered or tub ceilings. These blankets can create poison darts aimed at your body while you sleep.
Sloping ceilings increase the pressure on those sleeping under them, so creating a flat ceiling with a canopy can help alleviate that pressure. The idea is to create a flat overhead surface to create a protective cover or to stop poison darts from ceiling elements.
Artwork with a view
Some houses have a wall that you see as soon as you enter. This can starve the house of energy by pushing energy back to the door.
Over time, this can create a home that is starved of energy (i.e., health, money, opportunity).
By adding art that offers a glimpse into the distance and appears to be looking inward, you can help draw chi into the home by adding a view that extends further than the wall. This helps bring energy into the home as energy goes where the eye looks.
Lighting is one of the best forms of Feng Shui. It helps to tone and brighten, and that’s always good for Feng Shui because that’s yang energy. Lighting can help brighten dark corners, lift energy, and draw your gaze upward, just like a chandelier makes you look up.
A beautiful crystal chandelier is a great remedy for a staircase that’s too close to the front door, preventing energy (and money) from rushing out the door too quickly.
Crystal lighting is also great for calming energy in a kitchen when the stove and sink face each other, which can cause strife and household disharmony.
Curtains are a wonderful way to fix many Feng Shui mistakes. A common Feng Shui problem is when the command position in a bedroom is obscured by a window where the bed should be.
Because beds should be placed in the command position but never by the window, this can mean placing the bed in a less than optimal position to feel in control and supported during sleep, an important Feng Shui tenet.
Adding a curtain wall behind the bed can hide the window and provide a solid looking backdrop for the bed.
In some homes, the bedroom may have two windows in a corner on one side of the bed only. This visually feels off balance and can make a couple or anyone sleeping in the bedroom feel comfortable in bed, getting a proper rest and just not feeling in tune with life.
Adding another curtain on the side of the windowless wall can create a “fake” window that will help balance the visual appearance of the bedroom.
One of the rarer shapes in a home is round. Many homes are full of furnishings that are square or rectangular.
Over time, this can create a stuck or stagnant feeling in your home. You may feel that the space feels too heavy. By adding round shapes like a round end table or barrel shaped chair, you can create more movement and add a lighter feel that breaks the sense of heaviness and helps drive change in your home and life.
