Feng Shui Living Room Colours

It has been said that Love is the most purest and most powerful magic there is. When you embody self-love you have the capacity to unconditionally love others

The mood of your home has the power to help you embody how you most desire to feel in every given moment. In fact it is doing so right now! Yes it is! Your state of mind and state of being is a direct reflection of the state of your home and work space.

Don’t believe me take a moment, walk through your home and look around your living space and ask yourself this question?

Does my home look and feel how I desire to feel right now?

Let me share a little secret with you….theLiving Essence of Feng Shui is the rocket fuel to help you manifest your deepest desires. When you create a sacred space that embodies the look and feel how you desire to feel you’ve created magic. Everything is energy and has a frequency that either is neutral, beneficial, non-beneficial or influential to that which is in direct relationship to another.

What energy do you want to surround yourself with?

  • Colours that create a mood that support your desired feelings?
  • Architectural details that represent your preferred taste and style?
  • Furniture that is comfortable to your body and nervous system while reflect your personal design style?
  • Textiles that are pleasing to your touch?
  • Scents that raise your spirits?
  • Treasured accessories that you love, hold a fond memory, inspire a heartfelt story and hold a vision for your future?

Your home is your ultimate 3D vision board. It is the living breathing embodiment of your current state of body, soul and spirit.

When designing a home, work space or any room it is best Feng Shui practice to start by asking yourself a few important questions. It is though self-evaluation that you will create a mood for your space that will support and enhance how you desire to feel. In today’s hectic lifestyle we have forgotten to tune in to our feelings. Many of us are too exhausted and emotionally drained to even consider how we desire to feel for we have become numb to what it is we desire and find ourselves on cruise control with little thinking about our body, soul, spirit, and needs. So many of us are focused on our to-do list and our wants that we forget to pay attention to how it is we desire to feel. Even the word desire can often make us feel guilty for “wanting” something we believe is are not deserving of.

Many people take their environment for grated not truly “seeing” it and therefore, seldom tune into whether or not their space “feels fabulous” and even if they “still love it”. Few consider the influence the colour, shape and size of their rooms and furnishings have on their moods and desired feelings. New home owners are following designer trends that are decided for them with little and or no effort to discover their own taste and style based on the mood and feelings they desire to create. I find this all  such a shame as your home is the number #1 largest investment you will ever make and yet, little thought is spent on creating the mood in which will best support and enhance the feelings you desire to create in your life and those of your family. Which in turn influence the relationships and experiences we manifest on a minute to minute, day to day, year to year basis.

Here are a few simple questions to help you clarify the mood in which will support and enhance your desired feelings for each room in your home. It is through these questions you will gain some valuable insights into the direction to take The Living Essence of your Feng Shui into a living breathing expression of your deepest desires;

  4. Choose a Colour for Your Living Room that Supports How You Desire to Feel Colour is a frequency which creates a mood that influences your Body, Soul, Spirit and Home.  The living room for the most part is generally a very yang space, meaning masculine for it is a room that is one of the most active rooms in the home besides the kitchen. Often situated in the front of the house close to the front door the living room sets the tone for the entire home.

From a Feng Shui perspective it is important to consider which Gua/Guas the living room falls in when choosing the colour palette that suites your mood and how you desire to feel. I personally design inspirations from nature. I believe that when we include elements from our natural surroundings best support our state of being in profound and meaningful ways.
