Feng Shui – Help! Bathroom in the Family and Health Gua
🤦♀️ oh no, my bathroom is in the Family and Health gua! What do I do?
Well, FH is a wood gua so the 💦 of all the plumbing will help the wood 🍃 flourish. You can use the earth element to help nurture the wood giving it strong roots and control the water.
In our bathroom I painted the walls cream which is earth, hung cream drapes over the tub which stay closed all the time, we have cream towels and I painted the cabinets cream as well.
I added a wood shelf stained dark walnut (earth in colour) over the toilet to display pretty vintage bathroom decor. The pitcher of flowers is earthenware. The amber glass bottles are earth in colour. The Epsom Salts are earth. The toilet and sink are porcelain which is earth. The flooring is a soft linen colour also earth in colour. It’s also flat like the earth. Just kidding, no but really a flat surface is considered earth.🙃
The vertical board and batton represents the wood element in shape and material. The cabinets are wood, the towels and bath mat are cotton (wood), the faux flowers are wood, the damask stencil on the wall is floral (wood) the wicker basket and wood shelf and accessories are (wood). The framed artwork on the wall is a wooded landscape (wood), the little chair (wood).
Tada – other ways I’ve controlled the pull of the drains is by adding details that draw the eye and energy up in, the wood appliques on the cabinet doors and on the mirror, the Damask stencil, the shape of the mirror over the tub, the feathers in the amber bottles, the growth pattern of the faux flowers and the arch of the wall art.
Balance it can be achieved in any bathroom.
Here’s a breakdown of other elements present.
