Feng Shui Your Living Rooms from North Carolina Lifestyle Blogger Adventures of Frugal Mom

The living room got its name simply because it’s the room we live in the most. It’s the room that we kick back and watch television, where we sit down with family members to talk about what’s going on in our lives, and where we host parties.

It’s also the room where we can lean back on the furniture, close our eyes relax after a busy day of work.  Because the living room is so multifunctional and impacts so many areas of our lives, it’s important that we get the Feng Shui in this room done right.

Other rooms that flow into the living room, such as if you have an open floor plan, should not be allowed to encroach upon the living room. If the noise and clutter of other rooms intrude upon this living space, the energy will become negative.

Because a lot happens within the space of the living room and there are always people coming and going – family members and guests – the energy is fast-paced. To slow that energy, the decorations like photos from Minted in the room need to be calming.

Use furniture that’s soft and welcoming and promotes relaxation. To create this atmosphere use earth tone colors like beige or browns. Bring nature in with earthy plants, or pictures of earthy plants and don’t use curtains that are thick and dark because they have a tendency to shut out the light from the windows.

The furniture in this room should be in proportion to the size of the room. A large sofa that dominates the room disturbs the calm and the energy. Don’t situate the furniture in the middle of this room.

Instead, make sure that the focus is on the space given by having the furniture away from the center of the room. Also, make sure that your furniture matches the way the room was built. If you have a room that’s in a square shape, place square furniture in the room, but make sure this furniture doesn’t contain any sharp edges.

If you have an overly large living room, break the furniture and décor down into smaller focal groups. You can do that by picking out one or two pictures. You can also use colors that are inviting and relaxing. Bring in earth-related décor by using plants and art that symbolizes nature.

You also may want to remember not to place a bookshelf by the door – and if you have a bookshelf, use one with doors that can enclose the books, which keeps them from creating disharmony by appearing cluttered.  And never place overly large artwork directly above where someone will, because not only will it change the focus of the room, you never know when that large piece of artwork will fall and hit someone on the head. 

So these are just a few simple things that you can do make your living room a calming Feng Shui living environment.
