While we’re busy supplying the perfect jewelry gift to you and your loved ones this holiday, take some time to make sure your home is balanced and calm.
Feng shui is the Chinese art of creating harmonious surroundings that enhance the balance of yin and yang (masculine and feminine forces), such as rearranging furniture or designing a home…or decorating for Christmas.
According to Feng shui expert Rodika Tchi:
Even though using Fire element colors, such as red, purple and strong magenta are highly advisable in order to warm up the energy of your home in the cold season, do not forget about the main feng shui principle of balance.
If you have an unbalanced/too strong of a Fire feng shui element during Christmas season – which happens in many homes with an overwhelming amount of red colour – you risk creating an energy that promotes burn-out and even emotional outbursts.
To think, family conflicts so common during the holidays season could be adjusted with a little feng shui…or at least we hope!
The takeaway: balance out the strong feng shui created by the bolder red shades this season by using light blue, cool silver or a calm white colors.
