Tips to Feng Shui Your Living Space

Updated on July 21, 2015

Feng Shui Colors

It can all be as simple as a placement or the lighting of your living space. It can also be an array of colors you use to bring about certain energy. When going about bringing elements of Feng Shui to your area different colors can set the tone for your day. When bringing enlightenment to your daily life Earthly (green,Yellow,beige) allow a sense of relaxation and peace. Furniture, wall paintings and even your plants harbor colors that can make your life just a little more positive. When looking for the right color element using Bagua (Chinese chart that shows the elements of Feng Shui) can give you some guide on the types of energy you may want to allow into your life.

Green is the color of health and money.

Yellow is the color of spiritual growth and happiness.

Beige is the color of calm and relaxation.

Energy Placement

When walking into your home there should be a sense of refreshed feelings and relaxation. According to the Bagua chart it can also determine the type of energy flow. North (career), South (Fame & Reputation), East (Family & Health), West (Children & Creativity) are all important when thinking of your home. When decorating place items or furniture in the spots to evoke the different type of energy elements. It could be that maybe you need to let a little more light or every now and then move your furniture over a little to change scenery. Feng Shui is supposed to bring a healthier lifestyle. A better living space can make that cup of coffee you have in the morning seem apart of a better routine.


The aroma of your living space can also bring you to a happier place and complete the allure. There are many types of candles with different meanings and colors. Also, different smells that can create different emotions. If there is anything that can lift you up it's the beautiful smell of Jasmine or Vanilla that can sweep a room. Candles have a way of affecting you visually and emotionally. It is important to place your candle in the center of your home so it can complete the balance. A beautiful candle aroma can add onto the decor of your Feng Shui and add a lighting touch to your home.
