Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese practice of bringing good health and fortune by understanding or changing the energies within your home or personal space. Using Feng Shui can bring harmony into your home or personal space.
There are several different ways to incorporate Feng Shui into your life. One of the most simple ways to change the energy in any space is by the use of color. Each color represents one of the five different Feng Shui elements. These elements are Earth, Fire, Metal, Water and Wood. Specific elements are used throughout your home or space to produce the desired energy.
The red color in Feng Shui can cause dramatic affects depending on how and where it is used. Red belongs in the fire element. The energies created by the color red are not subtle. Using the color red will bring about energies of joy, excitement, arousal and passion. Using the red color in Feng Shui too much can cause a sense of uneasiness or even cause one to become more argumentative. For this reason it is suggested that you choose to accent a room with red rather than using red as the main color. Some ways to accent with red are with abstract art or throw pillows. This splash of red will prove to be the most affective approach to creating the Feng Shui harmony you desire.
The color red can be used in any room of your home when you choose to use it as an accent. You will achieve the greatest affect by using red in a master bedroom and in living rooms. Some of the best ways to incorporte red into a master bedroom is with a sheet set in red colors that compliment your bedding. When using red colors in the living room you can hang red curtains. In children's rooms, it is best to know how the child reacts to red. Some children may feel over-powered by the energy that red creates causing them to feel uneasy in their own room.
The red color in Feng Shui decor can be the perfect addition to any room that needs the energies balanced.
