We could all use a bit more energy-balancing Feng Shui decor at home these days. With work and play, home and school (not to mention everything in between), our homes have transformed into multi-functioning, extremely hard-working spaces. Make your home work for you, and not the other way around, by infusing Feng Shui decor into your space.
“Proper Feng Shui is purposefully arranging the stuff around you to affect you positively,” says Karen Rauch Carter, author of Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life. It involves using the five elements, wood, earth, metal, fire and water to create balance in your home. “The way to use these elements is to place them in the appropriate area of the home and give intention that they work for your particular cause.”
Explore these five elements, and some of our favorite ways to infuse Feng Shui decor into your home, below.
