According to the principles of Feng Shui, bringing the outdoors into your home is a great way to improve your mood, increase your health, and to improve your life overall. Here are a few ideas that can help you incorporate Feng Shui into the décor of your home.
Maximize natural light when possible
Find ways to bring natural light into your home. One option is to install sheer curtains, which allow you to let in plenty of light but they also allow you to decide how much privacy you want. The natural light will flood into your home, and brighten up the space. If you don’t have windows, try mimicking natural light through your lighting choices.
Adding plants can add a lot of benefits
Not only do plants go a long way towards bringing the outdoors inside, they actually improve the air quality in the room they’re in, they can help you relax, they can provide inspiration, and they’ve been shown to help people focus.
Get rid of clutter and see big changes
Feng Shui principles say that the more cluttered a room is, the more distractions a person will have. If you want to boost your productivity and get rid of many of the distractions of your life, then decluttering is a smart spot to begin. Likewise, ensuring that there are paths throughout your home without obstacles is supposed to be a big help in increasing productivity.
Remind yourself of your goals through your décor
Try finding tributes to the goals and passions you have, and put them throughout your home. Ideally, you’d put tributes in the room in which the goal would be accomplished. For example, if you want to write a novel, then you might place a tribute to that novel in your office. Positive thoughts are more likely when positive ideas are surrounding you.
Mix textures and patterns
Many people think of Feng Shui as a way to simplify décor and thought that is true, it’s also true that it’s a lot more than that. It also encourages people to mix and match textures, patterns, and colors. For example, patterned silk curtains may be a good to a room in which there are many solid colored accessories.
