Our design experts at DYH not only care for aesthetic, functional design, but also one that enhances the flow of good, positive energy, which improves your wellbeing and nurtures your individual peace and serenity. The colors, the shapes and the arrangement of objects in your home are the guiding factors according to the ancient philosophy of Feng Shui, which emphasizes on balancing of energies for personal prosperity.
Developed over 3,000 years ago in China, Feng Shui provides a complex knowledge of how to assure health and good fortune for your family and home. It is an ancient science and art of balancing energies through a specific use of colours, shapes and decoration decisions which can enhance your living or office space and attract fortune.
Feng means wind and shui means water, which are the two elements associated with good health and prosperity. Based on the Taoist vision and understanding of nature, good feng shui was essential for the ancient Chinese, who believed that the land is alive and filled with Chi, or energy.
Nowadays many people follow the established principles of Feng Shui and arrange their interior to balance the energies and enhance not only their living space, but also their life. Are you up for it as well?
Starting with Feng Shui’s science of the colours in your home here are a few important tips to use in order to influence and improve certain aspects of your life:
The western part of your home is associated with the overall wellbeing of the family and your children. You should decorate that side of your home with colours like dark blue, yellow and white as well as place round accessories and objects. Ideal Feng Shui items for that is a set of Tautou Chairs in yellow which would make a vibrant dining area for the whole family to enjoy
To enhance the health aspect of your life you should decorate the east part of your home in black, red or green. Ancient Chinese believed that since the sun rises from the east you need to take special care of that part of your home. Why not enhancing this side of your living space with the Zandra Sofa in green fabric. The clean lines and great comfort of this piece are an innate characteristic of our Scandinavian Interior collection.
If you have the ambition to rise high on the fame pedestal, according to Feng Shui you should focus on the south part of your home, which is the part that gets the maximum amount of sunshine. The colours you should accentuate for that side are yellow or red. It is also important to place wooden furniture. Trendy, yet ultimately functional, the Yan Chair and Stool in red upholstery will not only add a vibrant pop of colour, but will also be the perfect addition for the south side of your home to enhance the fame aspect of your life.
Are you after prosperity at work and business? Then focus on the north side of your house or the main entrance. You should use colours like white, dark blue, gray or black and place objects or furniture in irregular shapes. Metals like copper, bronze and gold are an integral part for the right flow of the energies. Aluminor, one of our favourite brands on DYH, offers the perfect pendant in copper to match the guidelines for the north size of your house. Place a few of the Bulle RS Ceiling Lights together and create a stylish focal point with the warm shine of their goldish surface.
