Welcome to the 800th post of LPB ! Let’s talk about deco.
From Feng Shui point of view, the common areas of the house would much benefit from a more ” Yang ” energy. This benevolent ” Qi ” must be allowed to flow smoothly through the house. ” Yang Qi ” would enliven your space & revitalised your energy, making you more optimistic, vibrant & sociable.
Aesthetically, light neutral colours convey a more spacious feel & establish a ” bright hall ” effect; Providing an illusion of ” potential “.
Coupled light neutral wall with dark solid floor for a “ground ” feel. It’s important that you feel ” established ” in your own environment. Benevolent energies are welcomed & encouraged to flow smoothly into the living space, but you would also like to ground them & utilise them to nurture your environment.
In contrast, darker shades convey a more ” Yin ” energy field and it’s more suitable for private areas where rest & seclusion are the priorities. A room too ” yin ” is good for relaxation & retirement but would not serve a great purpose for gathering & entertaining.
So make sure your living room & dining area have a more ” Yang ” outlook. Lighting helps, so does those odd ornamental pieces that add some element of vibrancy & excitement.
