How do you feng shui your home?

Living Room In feng shui, the ancient Chinese art and science of energy flow, Yin (passive energy) and Yang (active energy) are associated with the feminine and masculine characteristics of objects in your home. Having more of one over the other creates an imbalance. Yin is feminine, represented by that which is slower, softer, flexible, and feminine. Yang is masculine, which is faster, harder, and rigid. Part of balancing you home is being able to identify masculine and feminine design inclinations.
Masculine design or Yang
earthy color tones (grays, browns, and shades of black)
occasional pops of color
furniture is sleek with straight edges
textiles are found in solids, stripes, and plaid
concrete, steel, and leather are popular finishes
art is bold in size and concept
Feminine design or Yin
muted color tones such as pastels
softness is found in fabric patterns (floral, damask)
textiles are soft to touch (cotton, silk, velvet) • furniture is more ornate than functional
ambient lighting is important
accessories are key; they may have practical uses, but for the most part are there for décor

The goal is to create harmony in your interior spaces to promote a healthy and lovely living environment.
