A Feng Shui and Art Guide

Drawing from the principles of Feng Shui, an ancient Chinese practice focused on balancing energies through spatial arrangement, here’s a comprehensive guide to selecting paintings and colors.

These selections will bring good fortune and positive vibes to your living or workspace.

1. Artworks for Positive Energy

  • Hang paintings featuring lotus flowers, lakes, and cherry blossoms, as these elements bring good luck and infuse a sense of peace.
  • Explore the charm of landscape and koi fish paintings to attract fortune into your space. These artistic representations usher in positive energies and enhance overall well-being.

 2. Associating Art and Elements

3. Proper Art Placement

Understanding the role of the five elements (fire, earth, metal, water, and wood) in the eight directions is crucial for creating a harmonious environment.

Consider the Feng Shui principles in choosing and placing art to evoke desired feelings in each room, ensuring a balanced living space and a positive energy flow.

4. Specific Art Selection for Rooms

  • Front door: Opt for bright and cheerful colors to create a lively and welcoming atmosphere.
  • Living room: Select paintings of mountains and lakes to promote the excellent flow of wealth.
  • Kitchen and dining room: Paintings of fruits and flowers are best to symbolize wealth and abundance.
  • Bedroom: Place calm and peaceful paintings to enhance sleep quality.
  • Study or office room: Consider paintings of trees or pencils to improve focus and productivity.
  • Bathroom: Opt for paintings of small plants to purify negative energy.
