balance your life

September 23, 2009

Everyone can probably agree that their life could use a little more balance. Schedules, deadlines, and school activities seem to make life a little hectic sometimes. By paying attention to the elements of Feng Shui, you can achieve a sense of balance in your home and in your life.

What are the elements?

Metal:  is represented by using metallics, circular shapes, and the color white

Water:  is represented by wavy and curvy lines, and the colors blue and black

Fire: is represented in bright orange, red, and yellow colors, and sharp angled points

Wood: is represented by using actual wood, plants, and the colors brown and green

Earth: is represented by square shapes, and earthy tones such as beige and light yellow

Here is an example of a kitchen remodel project we completed.  The elements of Feng Shui are called out in white.

 A home or room that is well balanced, according to Feng Shui has at least one of each of the five elements within it.
