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.
Measure the pieces you intend to keep in the room. If you can locate a roll of painter's tape you will be able to measure the pieces of furniture and place them with the tape to see exactly how the floor space and traffic pattern responds to your ideas. This saves back breaking labor for plans that simply won't work! Invest in a set of 'moving coasters.' These are available at Dollar Stores, discount department stores and all home improvement stores. The most difficult part of arranging a room will become a breeze with these coasters.
