Come in and feel good! That’s the motto when it comes to designing the living room in your own home. Because in this room the whole family gathers and also guests are usually received here. Therefore, it is not wrong to create a harmonious and atmospheric ambience in the living room. Feng Shui helps you to make this room harmonious, inviting and comfortable. What that means in detail, we tell you gladly!
According to Feng Shui, it is best if the living room occupies a central place in the house and apartment. The first room after the entrance is well suited for a living room. Ideally, it is also the largest room in the house. Small living rooms can be optically enlarged with mirrors, white walls and well-proportioned furnishings. Unfavorable, however, are too large glass fronts and windows that are opposite a door because it loses too much energy. Fortunately, this energy can be defused with the help of plants, lamps, furniture and home accessories.
The middle of the living room should be as free as possible and visually emphasized. Wonderful would be a soft round carpet or a large, also round ornament in the floor covering. Seating should be with the back against the wall and not in the line between the door and the window. Their arrangement in the form of a square or rectangle and around a table or a fireplace is the best choice. High, massive cabinets and wall units seem heavy and disturb the harmony, especially if they are only on one side of the room.
The balance between light and dark has a positive effect on the human organism, so lighting in the living room is very important. With light effects you can achieve liveliness and at the same time harmony. Small light island and spots put furniture and home accessories wonderful in the scene. Candlelight creates a gentle and relaxing atmosphere in the evening.
A cozy atmosphere is achieved with colors and materials. Broken white as well as all earth and pastel shades radiate peace and coziness in the teachings of Feng Shui. With some color accents and unobtrusive patterns in the colors yellow, red, green, turquoise, beige and crème they will shine even more lively and cheerful. Plants, flowers and other natural elements lend liveliness and freshness and should not be missing in any living room.
