I remember watching a good TV show on home design that left me feeling very upset. That particular segment was on re-designing a bedroom which had a big and quite emotional painting of a lonely woman drowning in a large pool of water. The painting had a strong energy of sorrow and a desperate need to be alone.
The beauty is always in the eyes of the beholder, so there is no point in expressing my opinion about the aesthetical value of that painting. What I can certainly say, though, is that the mentioned art, or any images with similar energy, do not belong in the bathroom .
It felt almost surreal watching the designer re-create the whole bedroom around this painting, instead of taking a moment and sensing that this is a very inappropriate image (energy-wise) for a couple's bedroom.
The other design element from the same TV segment that should never be in the bedroom is a mirror facing the bed. Even though the mirror was stunning - nice and tall, with an elegant gold leaf frame - a mirror facing a bed should not be placed in the bedroom. In this particular case, it was also overwhelmingly close to one side of the bed and sure "working hard" against couple's harmony and sexual healing.
I am not disclosing the designer's name, nor do I know the name of the client. This gives me permission to make a highly probable feng shui statement that the couple who sleeps in that bedroom either is, or soon will be going through considerable emotional difficulties in their relationship. Actually, the most accurate statement is that they were in a difficult place already when filming the show.
How do I know it? It's the energy communicating in ways that we can all learn to listen to and understand.
