The Water Element’s colors are blue and black. Blue is famous for being calming, a view of the water calms us, relaxes us. The blues of this living room (above) make it a very welcoming room, comfortable.
Feng Shui philosophophy encourages us to place things, to have things that will allow energy to flow through the room. The energy is turned up with the bright white ceiling, and globe chandelier. The greens, the potted plant and the vase of fresh flowers are a nice addition as well. Green is the earth’s color the archetype, peacemaker. So the room is Feng Shui Balanced with those three energies, water – metal – earth. A bit of wood with the coffee table. I’m a bit worried about the doors that are blocked by the sofa. That blocks the flow of energy. Not seeing all four walls prevents us from making a hundred percent accurate review of the room. The fireplace seems to have the hearth closed, that too makes me wonder. A fireplace is a good way to add energy but with it closed, it might be purely decorative or a non-working flu. I have to say there needs to be a few adjustments to this room to create a better energy flow. There is a lot of great design in this living room, The blues are beautiful, the seating is perfect for entertaining. The blue and white combination is classic. The globe lighting, the sculpture and intricate fireplace are fantastic focal points. Click for more Feng Shui Tips
Designers Dream Room:
The amount of white in this bedroom (below) make it a Metal Room, the Alchemist. The black bedframe is the water element. The green bouquet is earth, the peacemaker. The wood floor and other furnishings are the pioneer. This room is nicely balanced Feng Shui. Can you see the difference between these two rooms? Doesn’t the first room just make you feel stuck, restricted? There is not a good flow. You do feel restricted. These are constraints that make designing a room such a difficult job. With a view like the one in the bedroom below, there are few problems. Hats off to all designers!
