Feng Shui is the art and science of aligning the design of a room to be in agreement with Spiritual forces to bring in positive energy called chi into the room which affect health, prosperity, harmony and well being of those living within. The living room holds a place of importance in everyone's life. It the first place that a guest encounters when he or she enter the house, it is where you converse with your partner and the other family members and where guests and acquaintances are entertained. All these are helpful in building harmony in the family and personal relationships.
Accents & Highlighting- Draw attention to a fireplace with overhead recessed lighting or track lighting fixtures. Alternatively, wall sconces on either side of the mantel will both emphasize the fireplace and offer more lighting for the entire room. An up light situated behind the object can highlight pedestals, figurines or floor plants. Add additional layers with multi-tiered hanging lamps or wall/ceiling wash lights. Accent lights placed in alcoves, corners or closed in spaces will accentuate a specific area or piece and give the room a larger appearance.
Always start thinking about colors when the rug is selected. Let us say your living room is 14 feet wide and 20 feet long, most likely you will have a rug at least 8 feet by 10 feet (It is recommended to use a larger size rug). However, your rug is still the largest chunk of color that will interact with everything else in the room, so your paint colors can easily be drawn from the rug pattern. It always works better this way.
