There are many books on feng shui in the bedroom. But if you decide to inform yourself on the subject you will notice that there are a lot of major differences between them. What one book calls “perfect” and “a great way of channeling positive energies”, another describes as “an awful solution that blocks completely the energy flow”. It doesn’t mean that those books are shams – it just mean that feng shui bedroom decorating is a kind of art, not science. There are no strict rules and even the most systematic approach to feng shui is little more than a thousand exceptions taken together.
There are, however, a few quite universal bedroom decorating tips that comes from the feng shui. Look at them and use them if they seem to be good. If you don’t like any one of them, reject the ideas – your intuition is what you should heed.
The bed in Feng Shui decorating:
Most feng shui schools tell us that the bed is the most important part of the bedroom. It should be bigger than you need – you can’t restrain your energy by sleeping in a tiny bed. Whatever you might think about feng shui, this piece of advice is a good one – a big bed means a comfortable sleep.
Feng Shui lighting:
The lighting should be soft. Feng shui generally disapproves of chandeliers, so all light sources in your bedroom should be placed on the walls or the bedside tables.
Plants, fish, mirrors:
Having live plants, fish or large mirrors in your bedroom is strongly discouraged. Feng shui bedroom decorating avoids the mirrors and living things other than people in a bedroom.
Feng Shui colors:
Feng shui bedroom colors depend on what you really want – red or pink will increase your “romantic luck” while soft greens or blues will enhance your relaxation abilities.
Fascinating stuff, isn’t it? Is it ‘true’ or not? All we can say is that the Asians have been using feng shui principles for thousands of years and swear by them.
