Christmas is around the corner. No doubt most of you have already decorated your homes with trees, lights and wonderful, cheerful colours. We thought it would be fun to talk about some Christmas decorating tips. Ever considered decorating rooms and spaces in your home following Feng Shui philosophy? You’ll surprise your guests and create a special atmosphere. Let’s get started.
Decorate your home entrance
According to Feng Shui the entrance of our home is “the Chi’s mouth”, that’s to say, the biggest entrance to attract positive energy into our homes, and at Christmas, we should boost its appeal decorating the entrance door with a Christmas wreath made out of pine cones and pine branches as well as golden and red details. To lure prosperity and happiness, you can also light up the entrance of the house on these festive dates.
Feng Shui Christmas colours
Feng Shui centers decoration in incorporating natural elements such as fire, water, earth, wood and metal. It includes green and red Christmas decorations, as the symbols of wood and fire, and combines them in golden and silver tones to represent metal, brown for wood and some blue tones symbolizing water. Including all these colours in Feng Shui Christmas decorations will attract prosperity, abundancy and calm to our home.
We can’t forget the traditional Christmas tree, the best-known symbol of the wooden elements, and the representation of family growth and vitality. The ideal is to choose a green pine tree, but what is really important is its situation within your home. Place it in the east or south east area of your living room to boost harmony and health for all your family. Above all, decorate it with decorative elements that follow Feng Shui colours mentioned above for a Feng Shui Christmas.
The central table at home is a place of reunion for all the family for these Christmas celebrations, that’s why Feng Shui is also present in this kind of decoration as a symbol of peace and stimulating good energy. A centerpiece with apples, candles and red and white flowers mustn’t be missing on a Christmas table.
Candles & essential oils
Last but not least, fill your home with appealing scents and fragrances to decorate your home for Christmas, following Feng Shui rules. Use scented candles and use essential oils that you like to create a cozy atmosphere. Lavender, cinnamon, lemon, or geraniums are excellent to boost positive energy.
