I'm sure most everyone has heard of Feng Shui. Basically it is an ancient Chinese art and science. It involves a rather complex body of knowledge that guides us in balancing the energy of any space to assure health and good fortune for the people that live there.
What I found interesting in reading about Feng Shui is that it also includes the use of colors. There are eight directions in Feng Shui. Each of these directions has a color associated with it. As I understand it, and I have just scratched the surface of Feng Shui, based on directional location of a room in your home you should incorporate the color that is associated with that direction. My bedroom is in an east location. For the east the color is green. The directions also have elements associated to them such as fire, wood or metal, etc.
But there is so much more involved in Feng Shui. I am fascinated with the use and the meaning of the colors for Feng Shui because, as you may have noticed, I have an interest in colors and how they are used in healing. Feng Shui is based on achieving good health. As I continue to read and learn I will share with you how you can incorporated some of these principles in your decor.
I would really like to know if any of you use Feng Shui when decorating your homes. If so, how do you think it has affected your life?
