Interior Arrangemet in Fengshui - 风水的室内布置

Interior Arrangemet in Fengshui

Anyone can use the fundamental rules of Feng Shui to position your fixture and furniture with interior décor in such proper manner that it make the most of the affirmative influences and minimises the bad ones. It is vital to balance Yin and Yang. It is important to maintain harmony and proper balance in the home and can be accomplished through planned positioning of objects and the use of colour and light.

The left side of a room is the commanding Dragon, and on the right is the sleeping Tiger. Place things in continuous use, such as clocks, press or other electrical equipment to the left, which is the symbol of power. The opposite half, belonging to the sleeping Tiger, must be kept quiet, calm and static.

The importance of arrangements in Feng Shui

Beforehand we take to the actual scriptures, let's start with some quick tips from these hands-on case studies. You shall see how the science of Feng Shui takes stock of the minutest things in furniture placement.

A psychologist once relocated into her new office, a large room with two big windows and three doors (may be more). Key pieces of furniture - sofa for the clients, chair for the psychiatrist, and a desk chair - had their backs to the room's entrance. Now, this is a no-no in Feng Shui because you should have an unrestricted view of the door so you can see who enter into the room.

The furniture needed to be re-positioned for clear view of the entrance of the room. Two long thin curtains in natural colours were hung from large brass rods over doors that were not in use (on that note, the ratio of one door to three windows in a room is measured auspicious in Feng Shui). A big leafy fern was placed on a pedestal table in a corner behind the diagonally placed sofa. The room was transformed.

On entering the room now, a healing serenity welcomed therapist and client. Sashaying curtains were hung to diffuse the strong window light. (Excess Chi from harsh light rushes out the windows, carrying money and openings.) As per the auspicious number code - nine green small plants were placed under the windows to strengthen the healing atmosphere. The therapist smiled and admitted feeling energized.

You shall see in Feng Shui that along with correct placement of key furniture to control Chi, the use of natural color palette, sensual textures, tempered sound and even fragrance is also necessary. Such as, Chinese Feng Shui masters believe every room would have a touch of true Chinese red, because red is considered the color of luck, power, and energy. But remember just a touch! For in Feng Shui, less is generally more.

Emperor yellow, the second most auspicious color in Feng Shui, is excellent for a thin wall with a Soft glaze of raw amber and a flick of Vermillion red. A low spirited dining corner can be transformed with a sunny yellow print tablecloth, tempered with a border of red, blue, and green and family spirits at dinner are lifted instantly. If you like blue, indigo is preferred in classical Feng Shui, as it comes from the seven colours of the rainbow and the refractions from cut crystal.

Symbolism is very across-the-board in its effect on emotions and states of mind, so be focused to what is on your walls. An art of collecting family had two dismal images facing people entering their homes. One was a painting of a dead fish, the other - a tired woman hanging cloth. Both were by famous artists, but this hardly altered the negative energies expected. Happily, the paintings were replaced with better ones - with positive Chi.

Interior doorways are dramatized in Asian and European homes to control the flow of Chi. In a London apartment, moving from one space to another is marked by floor-length door curtains of heavy bronze velvet tied back with tasselled ropes (tassels are considered lucky and suggest Chi energy). Japanese indigo-dye cotton curtains veil the upper third of doorways to control over-strong Chi movement; their designs of flowing water and fish are reflections of nature. Carved wood panels mounted on lintels subtly suggest the character of the room beyond.

In many cultures, there is the belief that empty corners harbour spirit mischief. Thus, flower arrangements, sculpture, screens, corner cabinets, and ferns are placed to create effect in corners, adding a gentle softness to a room. Curiously, appropriate treatment of corners, especially the placement of ferns and flowers, subtly raises the energy of a room.

The moral of the story being - Unlike Vaastu more than directions, Feng Shui stresses on good arrangement.

The Living Room

Since it is the one room where all the residents of a house gather, the atmosphere is thick with Yang. Clocks, tv, fans and air conditioners are in constant use and have an all- Include impact.

Paintings for the Living Room:

Follow these few points to maximise the positive influences in your house. Images of swimming fish signify longevity.

  • Lambs are symbolic of luck.
  • Landscapes depicting sunrise, mountains or water signify hope.
  • Cascading water symbolises good luck.
  • Portraits of people with serene and smiling faces encourage positive feelings.
  • Paintings that are have dark or vivid colouring induce poor health.
  • Paintings based on geometric shapes increase destructive feelings.
  • Paintings that use the colour red excessively create a feeling of irritability.
  • Paintings depicting wild and vicious animals induce poor health.

Plants for the Living Room:

Most plants have a positive influence as long as they are not wilting. Cactus and plants with sharp spiky leaves are best kept out the home. Plastic or artificial plants are neutral and do not affect Feng Shui.

Carpets in the Living Room:

  • Choose carpets and rugs in colours that correspond to the direction you place them in. Carpets that cover the whole room should suit the direction of the room itself.
  • If it is in the southeast part of the house, its colour should be green.

Pets:

  • Cats belong to the element wood, so the colours for their bedding should be blue, black or green. Red is a bad choice for cat's bedding. Front doors opening to the northeast, south and the northwest make cats strong and healthy. The north and southwest are bad openings for cats.
  • Dogs belong to the element earth. White baskets make them ill. Choose brown or yellow baskets for them. Main doors facing southwest, northeast or south makes a dog strong, while those facing southeast or east make them ill.

The Dining Room:

Dining tables should not be placed in front of the main door. A dining table that faces the toilet receives too much Yin and can negatively affect health. A dining table should not be used as partition between two rooms.

If a dining table faces the kitchen or is in the kitchen area, it receives too much Yang and the diners might develop a bad temperament. Air conditioning, central heating and fans are best kept on the left side of the dining room.

The Bedroom:

The bedroom, a very important room, is primarily associated with relaxation and comfort. A person needs to be sufficiently rested to perform well during the day. If the main door of a flat is directly opposite the bedroom door, the occupant of that room will face legal problems. Position a small decoration or a piece of furniture to interrupt the line of passage.

The Bedroom

Bunk Beds:

One's head should not touch the ceiling or this could result in ill health. The top of the mattress should also be at least 16 inches off the ground.

Clocks:

It is not propitious to keep a clock immediately behind or directly in front of a sleeper. Clocks should be placed on either side of the bed.

Light Bulbs:

A light bulb directly above the head of the bed will turn the sleeper in to a nervous wreck. If hung above the centre of the bed, it will cause stomach disorders. The light should be placed to the side of the bed.

Dressing Table:

The dressing table should not be placed at the foot of a bed as it adversely affects health. Move the dressing table to any other position.

The Bedroom

Bed Headboards:

You can draw on the strengths of the elements by choosing a headboard that corresponds to your element.

Round Shaped Headboards:

A round-shaped headboard belongs to the metal element. It is a good shape to choose, if you work in an office or are involved in paperwork.

Square & Rectangular Shaped Headboard:

Square or rectangular shaped headboards are for people who represent wood and earth elements. It is also good for professionals, as it encourages stability and offers support.

Oval or Wave- Shaped Headboards:

Oval or wavy-shaped headboards are ideal for people who belong to the element water and also for artists, musicians and designers.

Angular Headboards:

These are not recommended for anyone. It relates to the element fire. It prevents people from getting a good night's sleep.

The Study

Desks are associated with career, and need to be well set up to take advantage of the position.

Desk Positions:

  • One should sit with the desk to a wall and the desk in a corner.
    Desk Positions
  • One should avoid facing the door white seated as this adversely affects breathing and concentration.
    Desk Positions
  • Sitting too close to a door with one’s back to the door affects performance adversely.
    Desk Positions

Other Pointers about Desks:

  • Supporting beams above desks create pressure and tiredness.
  • A light directly above one's head affects concentration.
  • A desk should not obstruct a doorway.
  • One should not sit too close to a window.
  • Clocks should not be placed in front of writing desks.

The kitchen:

The kitchen is associated with health and affects the general well-being of the family. The strategic positioning of the kitchen and the cooking appliances induce the free flow of energies.

The Best Position for the kitchen

The best position for the kitchen is in the north, east and southeast corners of the house.

The Best Position for the kitchen

The Cooking Range

The Cooking Range            The Cooking Range
  • Shelves must be at least 3 feet above the cooking range to avoid a detrimental effect on the family's health. If necessary, remove any shelves that are too close to the cooking range. Shelves on either side of the cooking range are not affected.
  • A sink tap pointing at the cooking range creates digestive problem. A mirror placed above the cooking range reflects the negative energy away.
  • Water pipes can run under the cooking range but not under the floor below the cooking range.

The Fridge

The Fridge            The Fridge
  • The fridge door should point away from the kitchen door. The fridge is Yin and clashes with the Yang that is brought in by the people walking in.
  • The fridge door should not be opposite the cooking range door, as the cold from the fridge and fire from the cooking range do not mix.

The Sink

  • The best position for the sink is in the east, since that is also the direction of water. The next best is southwest.
  • Always fix leaky taps promptly and avoid leaving dishes soaking in the sink.
  • If you leave glasses around the sink to wash them later, first drain them of the water in them.
