Creating the right harmony and happiness in a home is not an easy task unless the immediate environment and the surroundings is harmonious and vibrant. To ensure that a space is filled with good energy and is vibrant the living space has to be balanced and it must have the right décor.
Adapting Feng Shui, this can be achieved in a lot simpler way. The primary aim in adapting Feng Shui is to help achieve a more balanced, prosperous and healthy way of living for the occupants. By applying Feng Shui techniques and guidelines you will clear your home of unwanted (or negative) energy while allowing the good energy to increase it’s presence and bring in a higher quality of life which is more balanced.
Using Feng Shui, the interiors of a space can be aligned to make it more meaningful and supportive to ensure overall emotional and physical well being. Feng Shui interior design is achieved by applying the Feng Shui philosophy when structuring and decorating the living spaces. When incorporating the use of Feng Shui interior design, the goal is to balance the energy – both positive and negative – within yourself, as well as your living space. In turn, you’ll reap the benefits of tranquility, peace, harmony and an overall sense of well-being. A Feng Shui interior design goes much deeper than just choosing the right style of furnishings and colour schemes; it’s meant to bring balance, clarity, and good fortune to those who enter and reside in the space.
In other words; Feng Shui takes the focus off of what the furnishings look like, and place it on where and how the furnishings are arranged. It is the belief that the position of your furnishings, art work and other accessories, are relevant to the harmony of that space and will increase (or decrease) the positive energy in that area. Placement and positioning of furnishings is extremely important as this will allow the free flow of energy to be present at all times. Remove all objects that seem to add clutter, especially around your entrance ways.
Having multiple uncluttered pathways within your living space will increase the flow of energy and allow balance and harmony to take hold. Feng Shui relies on the belief that positive energy is increased when living things are present. This can be achieved by incorporating plants, potted flowers and bonsai trees. Don’t forget about your pets and fish, as well. Lighting and music are also major factors in Fung Shui as they add to the overall ambiance which leads to a source of calmness, relaxation and clarity. Try experimenting with coloured bulbs to find your preferred level of comfort and serenity.
If there was one word to describe Feng Shui it would be “natural”. This holds true when selecting your furnishings. Choose items that are created from wood, stone or metal. Incorporating water elements into the overall design will also increase the natural concept in your home. Fish aquariums would accomplish that nicely.
