Feng Shui And Chandeliers

March 30, 2014 at 9:23 pm

Chandeliers are a great way to enhance any room of your house. Unfortunately if done incorrectly you can create an unbalanced space that can negatively effect your life.

Feng shui s an ancient study of elements and energy flow and how it effects our our life. According to Feng shui the flow of energy and careful placement of objects in your surrounding can improve all aspects of your life. Interestingly, we might be blocking our selves from reaching maximum potential by simply not having the right flow in our house.

So what does the Feng Shui says when it comes to chandeliers? There are few rules that you must fallow to gain the most from this beautiful light source.

1. Crystal are strong symbols in Feng Shi. They are very commonly used as cured for missing areas in your home.  Their refractive properties are great for protection agains negative energy. They can be used anywhere in the house and will always radiate blessing and add powerful magnification to any of your intentions.

Common places to use crystal chandelier are : center of a long narrow hallway. This will help disperse the energy and will compensate the missing spaces on both sides of the hallway.

2. Crystal chandeliers should not be hanged directly above the places where people are. This will include directly above headboard of your bed; above your living room couch. Having heavy objects hanging above your had are considered to be bad feng shui.

So if you want to hag it in the bedroom make sure it is hanging away from your bed. Similarly try to avoid hanging your crystal chandelier right above your couch in your living room.

Interior Design Ideas For 2013

July 4, 2013 at 2:23 pm

Interior design ideas for 2013

Interior design is an ever changing phenomenon that is constantly creating new and unique ideas on how you can design your home. Every single person wants their interior to reflect who they are and what characteristics they have, and are always seeking new ways to exhibit their personality. There are a vast number of influences on your interior, some of which you would not even believe can play a role that in fact are vital in dictating the atmosphere and feel of a room.

While everyone must have a significant input that is truly their own, it is also worth exploring other people’s ideas to help spark your imagination and to give you a greater understanding of all the dimensions of interior design. Below are some vibrant and contemporary interior design ideas to help you style your home.

Openness or density: how to control the space in your home

Depending on your personality and preferences, you will all have differing ideas on how much you should fill up a room and how this will impact on the atmosphere. Many people enjoy the spacious and free atmosphere that is created when large amounts of space are left open, and want their overall interior design plan to reflect this openness. Others however want to pack as much as possible into their home to reflect their personality, and would rather be surrounded by abundant belongings than have an open space. Choose carefully how densely you furnish your home, as this will be a huge part of dictating how open or spacious it feels.

Your windows can make or break your interior

Certain personalities will enjoy a bright and open home, and this can be achieved by having large windows allowing the outdoor sunlight to enter, giving the impression that there are not really any walls enclosing you from the outside world. Others however will enjoy the cosy atmosphere that comes from having a secluded and private space, and will place little emphasis on outdoor lighting. Getting the balance right is key, and you need to consider whether you enjoy natural light or are happy with artificial lighting.

Do you want consistency or variety?

This is perhaps where different homeowners will disagree most with each other: whether to keep a consistent theme and style running through your home, or to allow each individual room to express unique qualities of its own. Your answer to this conundrum is purely down to your personality, and the only thing you should consider is how to properly execute putting your beliefs into practice. If you want a consistent theme, it helps to explore all the various options in interior design as this will help to spark your imagination and give you a clearer conception of what you want. While you can have consistency, it is important to avoid monotony as you still want each room to have its own individual flavour. The most important thing for you is to be inspired by popular designs, but still make sure you imprint your own individual uniqueness on your home.
