No. Idea.” The only question that remains unanswered for us is how, but for Feng Shui experts, this has long been answered. I know you’re going to love this because today, we are going to absorb positive energy from this interesting article. *winks* I’ll give you two of the six Feng Shui tips on how to enhance the overall ambiance of your home, and we will start in the living room. *winks* Let’s roll, shall we?

Let me begin first by defining Feng Shui. Feng Shui is a Chinese philosophical system of harmonizing everyone with the surrounding environment. It is developed for over 3000 years ago in China. As stated by Wikipedia, feng shui is generally used to orient buildings, dwellings, significant structures such as tombs, and other structures. As written by Rodika Tchi, a Feng Shui, expert in About, “Feng means wind and Shui means water. In Chinese culture, wind and water are associated with good health. Thus good feng shui came to mean good fortune while bad feng shui means bad luck or misfortune.”

Now, let’s hear the Feng Shui tips! You might want to start with your door. The color of your door’s paint has something to do to achieve beauty and balance at home. According to Classic Feng Shui, the color of the front door depends on the direction it is facing. If your door is facing east, go for the color green. Color blue is for southeast-facing houses. “But I want red.” Red, my friend, works best if your door is facing south. If you are in love with purple and black, and your home is facing north, you’re lucky because purple and black are perfect for north-facing doors.

For the style, Feng Shui says, “the living room is a place of Yin, and hence it is best to create a calming and relaxed atmosphere.” You know about the five elements of nature, right? “Yes! Water, fire, earth, metal, and wood.” Great! And how are you going to apply this at home? *silence* “By placing fire, water, metal, and wood in each corner of the living room? And oh wait! What about the earth? How am I going to put earth in the living room?” *silence* Alright, don’t do that ‘corner’ thing. Here’s a suggestion from Decoist’s website. For the water element, you can place a glass or a stylish mirror near a fireplace. Perfect for balancing water and fire, right? And for the earth element, you can use bricks and ceramics. For metal, you can have natural stones for decoration and metallic accents.
