Helpful Guidelines for Decorating
Sometimes the stress brought on by personal and professional responsibilities can take a real toll on our home. There’s less and less time to clean and organize, things start piling up and you might not have the time or energy to invest in the appearance of your house. However, there are many that believe that our home decor and home design choices matter greatly, that they are, in fact, linked to our human experiences. This idea that your immediate physical surroundings are connected to your life experiences is at the center of Feng Shui. Feng Shui is a philosophical system that offers guidelines for organizing, decorating and designing a home that is meant to invite the flow of positive energy in your dwelling, with the idea that that positive energy will then flow into your life in general.
Feng Shui has been in use for over 3,500 years, originating in China with roots in astronomy. The words “Feng Shui” literally translate to “wind-water” in English. There are a few different schools of Feng Shui with the most well known based in compass directions. However, the image below offers a Western version of the discipline that does not rely on directions, but instead is based on a nine square grid with corresponding areas of your home. All you would do to apply this to your own home is to align the bottom of the chart with the front door of your house.
