I’ve missed you! I know, I’ve been away for awhile, let me update you…
Amazing Feng Shui projects have happened while we were apart (can’t WAIT to share--coming SOON!)
We (Bob, lovely husband, and I) have had quite the summer (Oh, you too?) helping our kids (yes, more than 1…) move and get set up in new homes, played with our 6 (!!!!!!!) grandbabiezzzzzzz, visited with friends, and just returned from a beautiful vacation in Maine:
We had a wonderful event at the Dreambank this summer and met So Many Fantastic new people! You probably already know that I love to spread the word about how POWERFUL Feng Shui Design is and how it can Rock Your World by harnessing the energy of your space to create a home (and life) you LOVE...
At the Dreambank event, one of the participants asked, “ What paint color is best for my bedroom?” I didn’t have the time to elaborate, so I wanted to give you ALL my thoughts on this…because if she was wondering, you might be wondering, too!
Your Bedroom’s TOP FUNCTIONS are to support you for rest, rejuvenation and making love. (And in case you’re wondering--NOT for TV-watching, work, or playing games on your phone, also not a storage locker.)
The most important thing to consider when choosing a paint color for your bedroom is how it affects your personal energy and what color(s) you need to lift your energy higher. (This is very hard to do for yourself, BTW!) You might need a watery color to relax and go with the flow, you might need a coral color to add fire and passion to your room/life or maybe lavender which is a combination of water and fire--a balanced feeling. Maybe you need green--a vibrant heart chakra color--or brown for grounding earth energy.
If you have read anything about Feng Shui, you know there are RULES about areas of your home that correlate to areas of your life and there are colors, numbers, animals and elements associated with areas, too. It can get Complicated.
I believe that the rules of Feng Shui are a solid foundation and guide. When I practice Feng Shui they always inform my choices but the only thing that really matters is YOU and YOUR personal energy.
In designing your bedroom we want to support your rest and intimacy and create a space that is compelling AND beautiful. Beauty fills and expands your soul in ways that nothing else can. So taking the energy/beauty up as high as possible will give you the most return on any investment you make in the upgrades to this important space in your home.
So, (yes, I’m getting around to answering the question…) All The Colors are on the table--there is no ONE best color for your bedroom--it depends on you. A beautiful Feng Shui bedroom will fill you to the brim and cause you to feel as if you’re coming home to your gorgeous, perfect self.
Some examples of bedrooms with a BIG CHI HIT:
(Remember, these are designed to be UNIQUE to the people who inhabit them--yours will be perfect for YOU!)
Give your bedroom a look with fresh Feng Shui eyes…
- How does it feel?
- How would you like it to feel?
- What’s one thing you can change today (removing clutter counts!) to make the room feel better?
Email me your answers, I would love to hear how this goes for you!
Also, you know I would love to jump on the phone and talk over your design projects with you...reply to this email and we will set something up!
Lots of Love,
