Feng Shui is a Chinese practice that has the goal to harmonize the energy flow in a certain space. With that harmony comes the promotion of prosperity, happiness, and health. Many people are focused on the art of Feng Shui in their homes. People follow practices from this discipline when it comes to the layout of the furniture, room orientation, and many other aspects of home aesthetics. However, did you know you can use wall art to achieve said harmony? If you didn’t, here is how you can use your wall art to achieve harmony and promote all those aspects of Feng Shui.
The Importance of Color
Color plays an important role in Feng Shui and it can have a powerful impact on the energy flow in your home. There are five elements in Feng Shui and each is represented by a certain color and has specific qualities and aspects of life. For example, the green color represents the element of wood and is associated with growth, vitality and abundance. The color red represents fire and is associated with energy, creativity, and passion, while blue represents water and calmness, purity, and quality.
So, if you want to create a calming atmosphere in your home, you should certainly focus on colors. Minimalist designs of wall art in carefully picked colors can help you achieve this harmony. For example, you can pick green or blue shades to promote health and purity in your home. Another way is to opt for custom-made posters where you can pick your own colors. One such example would be creating custom star map posters that feature shades of blue that will bring calmness and purity to your home. Such posters would work best in your bedroom.
Another important aspect of colors is balancing them out. Feng Shui also relies on the principles of Yin and Yang which means balancing opposing forces (light and dark for example). This means that you can create such balance by picking opposing colors in your wall art and proudly displaying them.
The Right Size and PlacementNow that you have colors all figured out, it’s time to pay attention to the size and placement of your wall art. These two aspects can majorly impact the energy flow in your home and help achieve overall harmony.
When it comes to the size of the wall art it should be appropriate for the room. A too-small or too-large piece can disrupt balance and energy. To help you figure out the size, you should consider it to be in proportion to the size of the wall and furniture you have in a room. So, if you have a large sofa in the living room, you don’t want to hang up a too-small piece of art, nor do you want it to be too big. You should find the size that is exactly right and proportional to the sofa.
As placement of art is concerned, it should enhance the energy flow instead of blocking it. You can consult the Feng Shui energy maps to help you figure out the placement of wall art. Basically, you should place the art in an area that represents the aspect of your life that you want to enhance. So, if you want to promote health, you should place wall art in wealthy areas according to Bagua Feng Shui rules.
As you can see, there are three main aspects of wall art to follow when achieving harmony in your home. The colors featured on your wall art will impact the energy flow of the house, as well as the size and placement of the art. There are many helpful maps in Feng Shui that can help you properly decorate your home and then enjoy its harmony and serenity.
