I hope that you’re enjoying your weekend and that your week wasn’t too busy.
On my end, I received pictures from my photographer that I will be able to share with you soon!
As we approach the end of this series, I’ve been brainstorming new ideas for the next series and future posts and other ways to interact with you. I’ve decided that my mid-week post will be linked to one of my Pinterest’s boards so that you will be able to further explore the topic of the day.
Lighting is a very important factor when incorporating Feng Shui into a room or a home. Feng Shui’s core is energy and light is the greatest source of energy. Both natural and artificial lighting have a big influence on the quality of your home’s energy. It is important to value good lighting and air quality in your home, as mentioned many times above. There a many different uses and sources of lighting, and each has its own beneficial properties.
Stay away from fluorescent lighting when decorating your home or office since it’s known to have negative effects on human behaviour and health. We feed off of our surroundings: we are either energized or drained by the energy around us. One of the most important rooms to light properly is the kitchen, which should feel spacious, bright, clean, and welcoming. To accomplish this, you can use several different types of lighting.
When choosing lighting to decorate your Feng Shui home, allow yourself to be guided by your energy. By doing so you will bring colour and beauty into your home. Do not forget to open your windows and let the sun in.
- A big mirror that reflects the table doubles abundance and brings good fortune.
- Mirrors recirculate energy and enhance natural light. They put the focus on what they reflect, so if a mirror has an upsetting view, move it!
- Hang mirrors high enough so that your guests are not looking at themselves while seated.
- Balance is fundamental for achieving Feng Shui in your decor. Have a good mix of masculine and feminine; hard and soft; straight and curved.
- People feel safer with their backs to the wall as opposed to sitting with their back to a window, door or hallway.
