Feng Shui Decorating: Tips & Ideas for a Feng Shui Home

Looking for Feng Shui decorating tips? Curious to see how interesting some concepts of the ancient Chinese system of aesthetics are? The wind and water concepts that are supposed to bring improvements in the quality of life have strong and culturally significant roots. Relying on astronomy and the modern magnetic compass to find correlations between humans and the universe, the Feng Shui movement has become stronger and more appealing.

If you want a Feng Shui home, there are several ways of guiding and orienting furniture and charms inside your home and in the garden to allow the movable positive or negative life force called Qi to travel through the home.

You could start by analyzing the things you need to make your life a better one, then find the perfect Feng Shui solutions for your family and home. Each defining culture has a specific way of dealing with the problems in their life and the Chinese have found a way of constructing their homes in a way that helps air circulate or gain natural solar light.

Residential buildings, tombs and graves – most of China’s major cities were designed and placed according to rules of Feng Shui. The Chinese people have been using the elements and concepts of Feng Shui for orienting structures and have been paying attention to the building’s age, interaction with the surrounding environment, vegetation,  the slope of the land and soil quality.

The Yang feng shui for homes had as much importance as the Ying feng shui for graves, allowing the people to connect to the energy, the Qi. The modern strive for placing structures on grounds with good Qi is a contemporary method of keeping the ancient beliefs alive.

The controversial use of Feng Shui in Western cultures has become a trend in itself, creating ever more free publicity for the Feng Shui practices. Remember to always decide what is best for you, your family and home after careful considerations and assiduous documentation. Whichever path of life you take, make sure to have fun with your findings and enjoy each moment you discover something new, like the art of feng shui.
