5 Feng Shui Tips for Interior Design
It’s all about spatial relations. The arrangement of seating is actually quite logical. For example, placing a sofa against a wall and positioning furniture where no-one’s going to bump into it.
1. Sofa against a solid wall
A sofa should not sit in the middle of a room, but against a wall – as far as possible from the entry and preferably with a clear view of the door.
2. Mix of shapes
Using a mix of shapes will help cover the obligatory five elements. Circles = metal. Triangles = fire. Squares = earth. Rectangles = wood. Too easy really!
3. Meaningful travel
For stronger spiritual connection, it’s important to surround yourself with items of meaning. Perhaps a beautiful travel print will fit the bill.
4. Lucky bamboo
A popular feng shui cure, lucky bamboo brings a peaceful and wise energy into your home. If you’re not great at keeping plants alive, a wall print may be a better cure.
5. Gender balance
If yin is the feminine and yang is the masculine, yin/yang is about combining the two to achieve a balance of energies. The way you achieve this in your own home is completely up to you.
