If you’re (still) “spring” cleaning, you may be looking for ways to tidy up your space and make it feel more open and functional. Feng shui is the perfect solution for optimizing your home and clearing out unwanted items. Not only does it unclutter -instantly making your living space appear larger, but it also adds sleek style.
By now, you’ve probably heard of feng shui, but just in case you haven’t, it’s essentially an ancient eastern technique (and philosophy) of organizing the home in a way that keeps it uncluttered, allowing positive energy to flow through each room. Sure, it may sound new-agey, but techniques of feng shui, namely decluttering, have been proven to help focus and clear the mind.
Primary principles of feng shui involve mixing elemental textures such as wood and metals along with colors which each represent different aspects of your life such as love, family, work, money etc. By using strategic placement of colors and elements, the idea is that it helps you attract these energies in each room. Placebo effect or not, feng shui has been used for centuries to bring good fortune to homes all over the world.
