Feng shui decorating is basically a way to decorate your home so as to create a vibrant feeling of joy and harmony.
Feng shui decorating does not necessarily mean creating a Zen-type home; what feng shui decorating means is that you create an environment that has the best energy to support the specific activity, or activities intended for that space.
A home office needs an active, vibrant energy of success, while a bedroom will need a soft, sensual energy. You can achieve the desired energies by following basic feng shui principles in your decorating efforts.
Feng shui can be used in decorating your house with the goal of creating a loving, supportive, fun and happy home. Decorating tips used in feng shui are slightly different than the traditional decorating, but once you start using feng shui, a harmoniously decorated home is yours to enjoy!
Your first step in decorating your home with feng shui starts before the actual decorating process.
The first feng shui requirement is to clear the old energy residues and create a strong and clear energy foundation. What does that mean on a practical level?
It means you have to clear your clutter. Decorating a cluttered home makes no sense, from the feng shui point of view. Kind of like applying expensive make-up to an unwashed face. Why would you do that?
Only after you have cleared the old energy you can move on to a successful feng shui decorating process. But wait, there is one more step before you immerse yourself into playing with colors, textures and an endless variety of feng shui cures!
Be sure you have good quality air and good quality light. These two elements are essential for good Chi, or good feng shui energy in your home.
OK, so if you have done all the preliminary work - your house is clutter-free (or almost clutter-free!), you have good quality air and good quality light, you are now ready to start decorating with feng shui!
When decorating your home with feng shui, it is important to focus on the big picture (your whole house or apartment), as well as "zoom in" into each specific area of your home in order to create best feng shui energy in all your rooms.
