Never brocken these 3 Feng Shui Rules
1. Keep your bed away from the window
Feng shui is very strict about this rule! Your head should never be underneath a window while sleeping – the logic behind this is that both your mind and body need support, so beds should be placed against solid walls with no doors on either side.
Furniture placement is extremely important when it comes to feng shui, and the bedroom is perhaps the most important space of all (it’s where we rest and recharge). The energy in this space needs to be tranquil and harmonious, which leads us to our next rule….
2.Separate work and rest areas
Attracting (and maintaining) positive energy will require your client to be mindful of how they use that space. Setting up a desk in your client’s bedroom goes against a strict rule of feng shui, which is to keep work and rest areas separate. It’s tempting to keep a laptop next to the bed, as many people work demanding jobs (and some work from home), but this will destroy the tranquility in their life!
Your client’s bedroom cannot possibly be an oasis of calm if they associate it with work, so encourage them to find another area to set up their work station (like the kitchen or a spare room).
3.Know your colors
Every home decorator knows the importance of color in the home. Colors improve quality of life by boosting moods, eliminating stress, and increasing confidence
Think about the color red for a moment. We can bet that thoughts of passion and exuberance come to mind. When that color is on the walls of living space the energy in that environment becomes passionate, bold, and lively. Choosing the color green, in contrast, will create a sense of peace and calm. This can help clients unwind after a busy day!
It’s important to meet with your clients and understand exactly what kind of atmosphere they want their home to emanate, and which qualities they personally want to improve on. Using the right colors in your clients’ living space is a feng shui rule that should never be broken. Do your research and plan out your color scheme!
