How to use "Silver" color for your Interior Design?

picture-51 A little bit of Silver adds some sparkle and life to almost any room in your home. Dressers, light fixtures, accessories and mirrors all fit the bill; and this is not a passing fancy. Silver furnishings have been featured prominently in well-designed interiors for many years. Original antiques can can be pricy but there are many companies producing pieces that are affordable and eye-catching with this extra little glitter which is the silver color.

Here are great easy ways to add a little silver in your interior:

Re-frame a favorite piece of artwork with a silver frame. Go with polished silver for a contemporary look or antique silver for something more traditional. Here a beautiful moroccan style mirror with a dressy silver frizz!

picture-151 Change the knobs on your dresser with something sparkly. It's an easy fix with a lot of impact. Or even refinish your whole dresser in silver for a little drama in the bedroom!

picture-6 Choose a  silver drapery pole and rings which draws more attention than stained wood.

picture-7 Accent tables are a great way to ad the sparkles! Why not select one that stands out?

Feng Shui Money Tips: The colors of prosperity!

colors-wealth.png

 

Accent your money areas with the colors green, red or purple. 

Green symbolizes vitality and growth

Red brings energy and power 

Purple is the best color for wealth. 

Gold signifies luxury. Donald Trump uses a lot of gold for his properties. 

You can place a big chunk of purple amethyst in your wealth area and have décor accents in those colors. 

You can use these colors on your window treatments, your soft furnishing, your accessories.  You don't have to use all those colors. You can just choose one. It is important to make the space pleasing to you and respect your design style.

You can also place a bowl of green and purple grapes (real or artificial) in the wealth area of your kitchen, to symbolize abundance filling your home. If you use real grapes, it's okay to eat them, just add more from time to time so the grapes remain fresh and the bowl is always more than half full.

Enhance your area with symbols of prosperity:

 

You can place a bowl of coins (add your loose change to it every day), a "lucky bamboo" plant, or anything that symbolizes success and prosperity to you. 

There are lots of Chinese luck symbols available, but you don't have to use them unless you want to. 

A picture of your dream house, or a model of that luxury car you long for, is an effective money symbol because it has personal meaning for you.

Feng Shui Money Tips: Check your Front door for wealth!

Your Front Door can Enhance Your Wealth

Is your front door hidden? Does your home or office face away from the street?

If your entrance cannot easily be seen from the street, opportunities and income have a harder time getting to you.

Invite chi to your front door by placing lights or moving objects or colors along the way. Your front door is the gateway to opportunities, so make sure the condition and appearance of the door are inviting and that doorknobs and hinges works smoothly.

Feng Shui Money Tips: De-clutter your wealth area!

 

declutter1.png

 

To enhance Your Wealth Area you need to:

Clear out any clutter from these important areas.

 Clutter is a sign of stagnant energy, and clutter in your wealth areas can clog up your cash flow. Getting rid of clutter is one of the most powerful ways to shift the energy up.

 

Fix things that are broken

Anything that doesn't work as it should is a sign of something wrong in the area of your life that corresponds to that part of your space. It's time to do something about that loose doorknob, non-working light switch, stuck file drawer, or clock that doesn't keep correct time, to name just a few possible examples. Remove items like these from your wealth area or fix them so they work properly.

Feng shui associates prosperity with the back left corner of any space. Stand at your front door facing into the house; your wealth area is at the back of the house on the left-hand side. There's also a wealth area within each room: facing in from the doorway, it's the corner area in the back of the room on the left-hand side. 

 

Now that you've identified your wealth areas, there are some quick and easy ways to apply Feng shui to these spaces so you can generate good luck and attract more money.

Feng Shui Money Tips: Make affirmations!

my-wealth.png

 

Make a list of things that you desire or want to achieve. Doing this helps you clarify your intentions. So be bold! Take a notepad or open a new document on your computer and make a list of 108  things you want to do or have in your life (It sounds like a lot but it is a multiple of 9: the Feng Shui Lucky number). Each time you achieve one you should cross it off and send your thanks to God or the Universe.    

Make affirmations of what you want or where you want to be like  though you are already there. Good examples are “My financial resources are increasing steadily every day”, “I always have what is necessary for my family”, “Money comes to me regularly and easily”, etc… 

It is important to clarify your intentions to reach your objectives. Feng Shui will help you to do so.

Feng Shui Money Tips: Know what you want!

 

  

Know what you want: The strength of your intention is what makes your success with Feng Shui. If you are enthusiastic and excited with an idea or a project, your energy level is so much higher than if you don’t really believe in it. When you focus on an unsatisfactory situation, your energy becomes stuck there. You need to approach things with optimism, confidence, enthusiasm and panache! This helps keeping the energy high to feed the project. 

 

A great way to help you define what you want and actually manifesting your desires in your life is by using visualization.

To help visualize your dreams and desires, you can use a vision board that can be a simple foam or cork board where you place a happy picture of you and words, images, photographs, quotes of the things you want to attract in your life.

Some people even have their vision board on their computer screen saver or even their iphone...

Important thing to remember, place  your vision board where you can see it on a daily basis at home or at the office and look at it everyday. It will help you realize what you really want.

Feng Shui Basics: The Bagua

 

picture-5.png

 

 

The term “bagua” is derived from the book of the I-Ching, a sacred text used to tell the future. But while the word may sound foreign or unfamiliar to you, ‘Feng Shui Bagua’ is one of the most basic and fundamental tools of Feng Shui.

An ancient Chinese term “bagua” means “eight areas” (“ba”=eight, “gua”=area) and Feng Shui bagua is a map or chart that relates the various areas of your life to the 8 sections of your living space. These eight main sections of a space are represented by what are known as “guas” of the bagua map. The bagua map can also have a ninth center section that corresponds to the 8 major corresponding life areas. So in this way the layout of bagua map shows the nine main energy centers that we value the most. 

The energy map is placed over a floor plan of the space. With the help of the map, Feng Shui Practitioners can emphasize and pinpoint the areas which need immediate attention so that they can be enhanced by Feng Shui practice.

The Metal element is a very positive yang element. It is usually represented by hard, flat, shiny surfaces that encourage Chi energy flow to circulate faster and easier. The Metal element is also a very supportive element that carries the water element. Imagine a river supported by the crystals and natural metals to run its course.

The Metal element is represented by the white color. This is a pure, protective color that helps make rooms seem more open and spacious. Also metals such as iron, silver, chrome, copper, gold are linked to the Metal energies.

According to the Bagua energy map, the Metal element supports the areas of children and creativity as well as the mentors, friends and advisors of your life. Metal is a very reliable force that helps with the cleansing of your mind.
