Tips for creating Feng Shui decoration
The Feng Shui hall
The house entrance is the space that unites the exterior with the interior and expresses how you relate to the rest of the world. The more welcoming it is, the better the energy, resources, and opportunities will flow into your home.
The receiver is the access of chi energy (the life force), and therefore must be free of objects that obstruct it. Order is fundamental and allows the energy that unites the body, mind, and spirit to flow better.
Feng shui advises having a piece of furniture in the hall to leave your shoes and keep energy from the outside world away.
It is clear that it is important to enter the house on the right foot.
Your living room with Feng Shui decoration
The recommended tones, in general, are light, provided they are not cold colors. The feng shui advocates warm tones.
In no case will bright tones be used, because it will prevent you from relaxing properly. It also runs away from dark tones, related to sadness.
If your floor is dark, it would be advisable to cover it with a carpet of natural materials in very light tones.
The living room or dining room table, preferably round, to facilitate dialogue and human relations. It is advisable not to be glass since it is an unkind material according to the Feng Shui philosophy.
The sofa must be leaning against a wall. If this were not possible, we would put a piece of furniture behind, for example, a console or low shelf.
The wooden structure and upholstery in light or neutral tones, with some accessories such as wool or cotton plaids, will make you feel good when you sit down to rest.
Living rooms and dining rooms should not have angles; if so, it could be avoided by moving some furniture and creating rounded spaces.
Bedroom Feng Shui decoration
Since the strongest energy point is in your head, protection is important for Feng Shui.
The headboard, therefore, is one of the most important elements in the bedroom. It is recommended that it be on the wall. Like curtains and bedding, it is preferable that it is made with ecological materials.
In decorating with Feng Shui, be careful with the mirrors in the bedroom. You should never put it in front of the bed because they attract awake energy and do not allow you to rest.
The bed should ideally be placed as far away from the door as possible. If this is not possible, it is advisable to sleep with the door closed to remove the chi energy.
And most importantly, avoid electrical contamination, mainly in the bedroom. Televisions, telephones, or other devices steal energy and rest.
The Feng Shui bathroom
It is the lowest energy place in your home. And also the place where more energy escapes.

Wood is an element that you should use in furniture. Clay or ceramic floors can also alleviate the negative effect that this area of the house has.

I count there is little light, and artificial light is required, use indirect lights, which are not annoying (avoid flashes and reflections) and with a warm hue (between 2200 and 3000K). Create cozy spaces that transmit tranquility and well-being.
Every moment a type of light. Use dimmers for the intensity of the lighting in your Feng Shui light.
It never fails! The use of candles enhances the sensations of peace and tranquility. After a long day of stress work and always running from one place to another, nothing better than recharging yourself with positive energies. Put candles in different rooms. The swaying of the light is relaxing and with a hypnotizing effect that generates a release of negative energies, for the entry of a positive and open mind.
