How to use Feng Shui to choose where to hang wallpaper
Would you like to use Feng Shui to decide where to install wallpaper & what colour wallpaper to choose? Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese method for creating a balance of Qi energies in your surroundings. Good feng shui in your home or office produces a positive energy flow, which translates into good health and fortune. Using Feng shui to choose your wallpaper and where to install it can create a feeling of joy and harmony in your home.
According to the Feng shui energy you need to use patterns and colours according to the room type, for example; soothing and sensual in the bedroom or active and vibrant in the office.
The north wall of a room is associated with career and success and would need water elements (except in a bedroom) to harness positive energy for your career. So hanging a wallpaper mural of a river, waterfall, ocean or fountain would be appropriate here. A goldfish is considered a lucky symbol too.
Beneficial colours to use on a north wall are blue and black. Find a black & blue wallpaper pattern that uses blue as background colour and the black as an accent colour.
The east corresponds with the health and family in feng shui so find a mural of forests, nature or even create a custom made wallpaper using your own family portraits or a holiday photo.
Colour is an important aspect for the east bedroom wall in order to create a soothing, calm feeling. Feng shui principles recommend colours here that remind you of skin tones, such as beige, cream, peach and cocoa. Also suitable are light blues, greens and lavenders. This gives you many wallpaper colour options.
A dragon is the most powerful symbol of feng shui. It can bring happiness and success in all spheres of your life and best hung on the east wall.
Green is the colour associated with the East direction so combining the two concepts is even better.
