Two-Tip Tuesday



Year of the Horse 2014 (wood) Post Card imageWelcome to the Year of the Wood Horse

Last week marked the Chinese New Year, bringing us into the Year of the Wood Horse. Most people are familiar with the animals of the Chinese zodiac, but each year is associated with an element as well. Last year was the Water Snake. Water is often associated with deep introspection and emotions, whereas wood represents growth and progress. Paired with the fiery horse, this year should feel much faster paced, productive and explosive.

This week’s tips are ideas for how to bring the wood element into your home, as well as to create good feng shui for 2014. Click here for more information about the Year of the Wood Horse. As always, please contact me if you’d like more ideas on how to feng shui your space.

Clear entryway imageA Clear Entryway

Can you barely open your front door because of too much clutter? Has your snow gear taken over your entryway, making it a challenge just to squeeze into your house? In feng shui terms, the front door of the home (or office) is referred to as the mouth of the qi (or chi). Think of it as the main entry portal for all energy to flow into your space. So imagine how challenging it would be to have a healthy flow of energy throughout your house or office if this entryway were obstructed in any way. Your front door is kind-of like your home’s first impression. Would you really want to neglect that area or keep it as the main dumping ground?

Sprucing up this space can be easy and simple. First and foremost, you do have to take on the daunting task of removing the clutter (if that is an issue). Find new homes for your shoes, hats, gloves or whatever is piling up. Plants are always excellent for bringing in positive energy, as long as they are positioned well and not in the way. Make sure doorbells are in working order, hinges are well oiled and light bulbs aren’t covered in cobwebs. A nice looking doormat is another way to give your entryway a fresh look. Remember, it is just as important to keep the exterior space in order as it is to keep the interior.

One way to create good feng shui in 2014 is to bring more of the wood element into your space. You might think this means actual wood or something brown, but in feng shui terms, the wood element is represented by anything on the green color spectrum. Light blues may fall into this category as well. Color can be introduced in a variety of ways, whether it is through art, painting a wall or dish towels. Using small decorative accents can help accomplish this as well, just be careful not to create chachki clutter. (You know who you are, chachki lovers!)

Plants are another excellent way to bring wood into your space. If you have a brown thumb like me, bamboo is the perfect plant for you. Not only is bamboo an auspicious feng shui cure, it’s a very low maintenance plant, it doesn’t need light and it’s difficult to kill (although it can be done). Pictures of plants, vibrant green landscapes or lush forests also work. Just remember to always surround yourself with things you love. Don’t buy an item just because you desperately need something that meets these criteria. Your home should be decorated with items that not only make your space feel good, but make you feel good as well.
