5 Feng Shui Décor Mistakes You Don't Want To Make!

According to Feng Shui experts, the chi or energy of a space and the objects in it, have the ability to influence our life patterns and outcomes. By getting the Feng Shui in our homes right, we are able to create a happy and healthy environment that bring positivity in our lives and homes and help us succeed in our work and personal lives. Feng Shui is easy to incorporate and costs next to nothing to follow. A simple rearrangement of furniture or getting rid of objects that can trap or introduce bad energy are also easy fixes.

We've put together 5 décor faux pas to avoid to get rid of bad Feng Shui to create a positive and happy home.

Cactus
Cactus or any thorny plants displayed in your home according to Feng Shui attracts negative energy and brings bad luck. Which is such a shame since this décor trend is so popular right now. However, instead of cactus, look at decorating with succulents and ferns indoors to attract positive energy and good vibes.

Calendars
Old calendars and calendars hung in the wrong place such near the front door of your home can usher in negative vibes and affect health and longevity of the residents according to Feng Shui experts. Move the calendar away from near the front door and get rid of old calendars. If the old calendars have pretty prints that you like, cut them out and frame them and discard the dates.

Art
Any painting or artwork depicting distress can negatively affect personal luck and happiness such as paintings of shipwrecks and boats in tumultuous seas or animals being hunted. Best to avoid buying them or just get rid of them.


Dead Flowers
Useless objects that create clutter are bad Feng Shui and dead or dried flowers is one of them. The concept behind this theory is that once these plants were alive and now they are dead which reflects negativity into your home. However many of us have hung on to a few tokens, such as dried flowers from wedding bouquets or from Mother's Day. If you do wish to keep dried flowers in your home, ensure that you have a special place for them. Dried flowers are al right to decorate with so long they are dust free, cared for and there is a special meaning and positive energy of love and affection attached to it. The minute they start gathering dust and get lost in clutter they lose their special place and it is better to let them go before they become a source of negative energy.

Broken, Damaged or Chipped Objects
Broken, damaged or chipped objects create bad energy in your home so just get rid of them. Many like collecting vintage plates, bottles, crockery and decorating with them, however if there are a couple of chipped ones, it is recommended that they be discarded to avoid negative Chi. 

Following these simple Feng Shui tips, you can avoid creating negative energy in your home and make your home a happy and healthy sanctuary. 

Till next time... create positive chi in your home!

  1. I love this post... walking into any room, no matter what you have tried to create there will be an energy that comes with is.

    I don't subscribe personally to Feng Shui as I believe your home should be personal, and I think the concept of Feng Shui is a little rigid... BUT I love the idea of thinking about energy when creating your perfect space...
