You’ve probably heard feng shui mentioned in pop culture, but do you know what it actually means? Feng shui is an ancient Chinese philosophy that shares how colors and arrangement can make your home more positive.
The five elements of the philosophy are fire, water, earth, wood and metal. This may sound pretty intense, but it’s surprisingly simple to implement.
Interestingly enough, a red night light is said to raise the energy level inside the home. If you’re looking for a caffeine alternative, this may be worth a try.
When it comes to wood, this is pretty easy to bring into your home. Bring in potted pants and greenery.
Having a fountain inside your home to bring in the water element isn’t always attainable, especially for those of us stuck in apartments. You can use the colors blue and black to achieve this element.
You can bring earth into your home with ceramics and earth tones. This element is represented by yellow, which isn’t a popular design choice.
Lastly, you can incorporate metal by finding a funky sculpture or furniture piece. Painting your walls gray, white or gold can also achieve this effect.
Even if you’re not into feng shui, hopefully you learned something new from this writeup. And if you want something a bit less spiritual, you can check out our post on interior design.
