If you have ever noticed how art can make you feel, you may have been under the influence of Feng Shui. Ever enter a room or home and suddenly feel a sense of peacefulness, tranquility, or calm? What about feeling more inspired then when you walked in? How about feeling just the opposite, dread and heaviness, a weightiness on your shoulders kind of feeling? Sometimes you can’t put your finger on it, but a space makes you feel a certain way, good, bad or indifferent. Feng Shui is about the energies and harmonies of a space. Good Feng Shui is said to create a feeling of balance and harmony, it just feels comfortable and right. The Chinese call it “auspiciousness”. Often we think of Feng Shui being used in furniture placement and home design, but art is part of home design and should be considered when balancing Feng Shui energies. Art as Feng Shui can be used effectively to create restfulness such as in a bedroom, meditation area or yoga studio or be energizing as in a family room, kitchen or gym. It’s up to you on how you want to use the space and what type of energy you want to be created in that space. A new way to look at art is as an accent piece to enhance not only the decor of a space, but it’s balance and harmonizing properties for a room.
