Feng shui decor
Every room of our house plays an important role in our lives. Feng shui interior decorating tips that can have a great impact on many aspects of your life:
Clutter and mess is anathema to the rules of feng shui interior decorating. A messy home or office can block and ward off positive chi.
Plants can be used to good advantage in home decoration.
It is best to avoid sharp cornered objects and excessive overhead lights when trying to incorporate feng shui in interior decorating.
Strong drafts are also not considered to have a positive influence.
When using feng shui decorating rules for the kitchen, ensure that the kitchen is well ventilated and safe. The kitchen plays an important role in your life, as ‘you are what you eat’. Overhead and exposed beams should be avoided in a feng shui home. They are considered to bring oppressive chi and breed distrust and dishonesty. Sharp and protruding corners in a feng shui house can be softened with cascading plants or wind chimes or even furnishings with rounded edges.
Feng shui house
The first principle in any feng shui home is to allow space at the main door to be free and clear so as to allow chi to flow in. Avoid shoes near the door. A feng shui home should ideally have a water fountain positioned favorably so as to attract and trap the chi. Do not have a stove and refrigerator or washing machine in the kitchen together as this might cause disagreements on account of the fire and water crash.
