Wouldn’t it be wonderful to come home to a place that encourages peace, calm and relaxation? If that’s what you long for, a Feng Shui friendly interior décor could be just what you need! 
 
Your space is a mirror of your mind. In today’s busy world, a soothing and relaxing home is mandatory to replenish the natural energy flow inside and outside of us. A relaxing home also attracts productivity and prosperity, and Feng Shui elements in your home can invite harmony and good fortune into your home while releasing pressure and stress out of your home. With that in mind, here are some Feng Shui friendly DIY home décor projects to try this season. 
 
1. Move things around
Feng Shui says that if you’re feeling stuck, your attention is introverted. The act of moving things around will help to extrovert your attention and make you feel more connected to your physical surroundings. Move around décor pieces --- decorative items, cushions, painting, table and floor lamps, or swap out clocks and bring about a change that ‘feels’ better. The most auspicious number is Feng Shui is 9, so aim to move around nine objects.

2. Paint the door
Feng Shui suggests painting the door in a bold, bright colour. The colour is dependent on the direction the door faces. Green for a house facing the East, Blue for a house facing South-east, Red for a door facing South and Black or Purple for a door facing North. Paint your old door a Feng-Shui rich colour to bring in positive energy and good luck!

3. Rearrange the furniture
Is your furniture lined along the walls and filling up corners? Change that! Feng Shui suggests that all major furniture in the room should face the entrance. This rule applies to couches, chairs and beds. The large furniture that becomes the focal point of the décor should face the door. Free up corners and let air circulate freely throughout the room.

4. Add upward facing lamps
Love DIY lamp shades made from scrap and painted by you? If so, your next project should be an upward facing light fixture that enhances the energy flow and mood of the room. These lights will also encourage a good posture and make you feel perkier!

5. Bring in some colour
If your living room is done in neutral hues, add a few splashes of bold colour. In Feng Shui, a rainbow of colour is thought to bring harmony into a space; it's best applied to areas of your home where you frequently get tired, bored or feel the energy sink. Add colour to walls by sticking decals and also adding to the visual interest of the space. Wall decals are a great DIY project to give old, drab walls a quick makeover. You can also hand paint old white cushion covers, or paint old furniture pieces in a bold, bright colour.

6. Add gold detailing
Gold is a nearly universal, culturally embedded symbol of abundance and value. In traditional Feng Shui, it is considered to amplify energy and confidence. Spray painting is the easiest and most cost-effective way to transform old stuff and there is just so much you can do with it. Spray paint an old tray with gold or do the same for a picture frame. You can also spray paint door knobs from steel to gold, or add gold leaf accents to old furniture pieces and even small accessories like napkin rings and vases.

7. Green in the Bathroom
Adding plants to the bathroom also promote the free flow of positive energy. Add jade or succulents to bathrooms with little light, or add Lucky Bamboo to bathrooms with no natural light. Use old glass pots and mason jars and convert them into planters. Position plants close to drains on counter tops and bath-side, as their elemental wood energy counterbalances the draining action of pipes in sinks and toilets.
