The bedroom is the place of relaxation, romance and rest. Well designed, the bedroom can inspire couples to feel more romantic and spark their passions. Otherwise, relationships can be reduced to a friendly, not-so-romantic handshake. If bedrooms are a place of activity, such as exercise, work, hobbies, or other interests, then they won’t be the sleeping space they were meant to be. There is a fine line between creating the bedroom that inspires you and the bedroom that exhausts you.
One of the first areas this shows up is artwork. Feng shui has strict rules regarding rooms and consequently the art that includes them. Over and over again, I see bedrooms during feng shui consultations whose artwork appears to be leftover from the rest of the house. However, the symbolism of the art in relation to the room in which it is displayed is not taken into account, such as winter scenes in a double bedroom. This can fill the bedroom with all the wrong messages. Bbbbrrrrr …….
Bedrooms should display the messages that inspire the person (or people) occupying the room. Artwork should reflect your tastes, interests, and desires while still following feng shui guidelines. This will help ensure that negative or inappropriate messages are not distracting from the bedroom’s main goals: rest, romance, and relaxation.
Look at all the bedrooms in the house. Determine if they are inspiring and if they are making the right statements for the room. For example, a scary poster of Spiderman that looks like Spiderman is going to jump off the wall can create a scary bedroom for a child.
Or, images of children in a married couple’s bedroom create too much “child energy” and can be uncomfortable for romance, causing marital passion to fade. Next, keep in mind the feng shui guidelines, such as removing mirrors, images of dragons, deities. or ferocious animals.
Sleeping is a time when we must be more protected and cared for. That’s why it makes sense to make sure your rooms support you, your family, and your relationships.
Art in children’s bedrooms
* Avoid vicious animals and scary figures.
* Place happy and bright pictures in children’s rooms.
* Show skills and learning pictures, such as pictures of balloons and books or any kind of learning experience.
* DO NOT hang pictures of water, lakes or oceans
* Avoid images of religious themes, such as crosses or religious figures
* Select animal pictures that are positive, like horses (good for kids) that look happy and strong, not scared. Turtles are also beneficial. Avoid frogs and toads that may appear to “eat” anything in the room.
* Have photos of parents in the children’s bedroom to inspire better behavior and greater respect.
* Clouds are very popular for children’s rooms. If you have clouds on the roof, make sure that the child’s head is not covered by a cloud, as this will create “a cloud over his head” and this can lead to a number of difficulties. (The same goes for adult rooms).
Art in adult bedrooms
* For couples, post photos of couples (geese, ducks, chairs, vases, etc.) to encourage bonding.
* Avoid images of heavenly images, deities, religious figures, etc.
* Avoid images of singular elements that suggest being alone
* Avoid photographs of flowers and plants, unless someone is sick. Plants and pictures of plants or flowers will get the pairs arguing.
* HAVE photos of love, such as couples in a hug, tasteful nudes or affection.
* DO NOT have photos of children in the bedroom. You’ve got enough “kid time” now. Have a place in the house that is dedicated exclusively to you and your partner.
* If you are single, make sure you have paintings in the bedroom that represent the energy you are trying to attract, that is, a single woman looking for a man should hang paintings that show men or have men strongly in the scene.
* To create opportunities for yourself, put a picture of an open field on the wall opposite the bed. This suggests that the path of your life is open and obstacles are removed.
