your home lost that loving feeling? Do feel nurtured
when you are at home? Is it lacking vital energy
that makes you feel alive and nurtured? Maybe
it’s time to add some romance to your home.
Using Feng Shui principles can be a simple way
to make your home loving and inviting. Your home
is a place where you can create a tranquil haven
from the hectic outside world. Adding some romance
to your home does not mean that you have to decorate
it in a particular way, such as a Victorian-styled
home with lots of lace and floral patterns. Romancing
your home is rather a way to create a beautiful,
inviting and harmonious living environment, which
you can express through your own personal decorating
Shui is widely used to create harmony and happiness
in all types of relationships: romantic, family,
friends, and work associates. One of the most
important objectives in Feng Shui is that of family
happiness. One simple way to support harmonious
family relationships is to have a dining table
that is round or oval in shape to encourage a
smooth flow of conversation and energy. Feng Shui
also puts importance on diffusing obstacles that
can create negative energy, such as overhead beams,
a protruding display or bookcase, or knives exposed
in the kitchen. Overhead beams can represent heavy
energy bearing down on you, especially if the
beams are over your bed. Look around your home
to see if any of these obstacles could be creating
an uninviting home for you. It is also a challenge
to be romantic in the bedroom if your computer
and television are there vying for your attention.
It is best to locate these items in another part
of the house. If you must have a television in
the bedroom, place it in an armoire so that it
can be hidden away when not in use.
the obstacles of negativity are diffused, you
can bring in positive, enriching energy by displaying
symbols of love and romance. Try keeping things
in pairs, such as a pair of candles or have a
pair of rose quartz hearts on your bed side table.
Images of love birds or mandarin ducks are often
used to visually represent being in a loving relationship.
You can also strengthen relationship energy in
other rooms of your home with the pairing of Yin
and Yang opposites, such as artwork depicting
water and mountains or statuary of a man and woman.

room a soft approachable feel.
Red is a strong passionate color that can create
feelings of power and excitement. In your bedroom,
it is best to use this sparingly as an accent
instead of painting all walls in the color red.
Green is a calming color and gives a sense of
safety and stability to many people.
White is the most common color that people use
on the walls is their bedroom. Although it creates
a fresh and relaxed feeling, it has a tendency
to be a little on the cool side. Consider warming
things up a bit with flesh-toned sheets or a painted
accent wall behind the head of the bed.
