Feng Shui Your Bedroom Decor for Relaxing Nights

Feng shui — which literally translates to “wind and water” — is the ancient Chinese art of placement. The goal is to enhance the flow of chi (life force or spiritual energy), and to create harmonious environments that support health, beckon wealth and invite happiness. Feng shui is a decorating discipline based on the belief that our surroundings affect us.

In the bedroom, “Feng shui helps you arrange the space to support your best rest and connection with your partner and with yourself,” says Los Angeles feng shui consultant Jayme Barrett, author of Feng Shui Your Life.

Use Welcoming Colors

Feng shui practitioners recommend warm, rich earth and skin tones such as terra cotta, copper, coral, cream, peach, tan and cocoa for creating a cozy, welcoming atmosphere in the bedroom. Soft natural colors like light blues, greens and lavenders lend the bedroom a quiet, tranquil vibe and invite healing energy. Bright reds and oranges are typically associated with yang — the masculine half of the yin and yang energy equation — and are too stimulating.

Position Your Bed With Care

In feng shui, the “commanding position” for the bed is as far away from the bedroom door as possible, but in a spot which still allows you to keep an eye on the room’s entrance.

Create a Space for Couples

One is indeed the loneliest number — even when it comes to bedroom furnishings and decor. Instead, if you’re single and don’t want to be, decorate your bedroom as if a partner is already there. Symmetry is key, so position nightstands and lamps on both sides of the bed. Accessorize in pairs or multiples, too.

Clear the Clutter

From a feng shui perspective, clutter symbolizes unfinished business and impedes forward progress in life. So keep furnishings on the spare side and clutter as contained as possible to enable chi to flow freely around the room. Tip: Plants placed in corners are said to prevent energy from stagnating there. And don’t use the space under your bed to store boxes of out-of-season clothes.

“Less is more” also applies to the closet. According to experts, clutter behind closed doors can be just as depleting as clutter that’s in the open.

Open Your Eyes to Beauty

A common feng shui strategy is to choose art and other objects that depict things you’d like to see manifest in your life, whether success, love or inner peace. In the bedroom, practitioners suggest hanging your favorite piece of art on the wall opposite your bed.
