Living Room Decorating Tips & Feng Shui

I’m figuring out the layout of our living room & have been struggling.  The design I had initially mapped out ended up causing horrible energy in the room, so naturally I looked up some Feng Shui tips…

Living Room Do Not’s

  • The television should not be your main focal point or have a central position in the room.  Essentially- don’t organize your room AROUND your TV!  If you can, put it in a stand or case that has doors that can be closed when it is not in use.
  • Do not place the seating with the backs towards the door-the seating should be place to welcome those who enter (but not necessarily facing the door).
  • Avoid placing the sofa against a window.
Living Room Do’s
  • A fireplace IS a good element to have as the room’s focal point.
  • Important that the room is inviting.  If you don’t have a fireplace, have the ability to have a conversation easily be the focal point.
  • Strategically place mirrors to give off more light into the room & make it look larger.
  • Light dark corners.
  • The living room’s main table should be tidy – the main table (i.e. a coffee table) symbolizes health.
Did you know…There are 8 points of a room when you walk into it:
Power-ahead
Reputation-centered on right wall
Family-centered on left wall
Knowledge-left front corner
Friends-right front corner
Marriage-right back corner
Wealth-left back corner
Career-immediate right of doorway
