What Color Should I Paint My Master Bedroom? Feng Shui Can Advise.

Master Bedroom – Your Romantic Boudoir

One of the most important rooms in Feng Shui is the master bedroom.  Therefore, what you do with this bedroom has far reaching implications to your wellbeing, harmony and relationships. The best master bedroom colors are found in the warm skin tones of all races of people; from light beiges, tans, cocoas, pinks, peaches, subtle yellows, earthy reds, copper, gold, bronze amongst others. The colors that are too cool and do not work in master bedrooms are pure white, grey, black, blues, and greens because they create a chilly room versus a sensual one.

In the master bedroom the art and pictures should represent the qualities of the Love and Marriage area of the Bagua: pairs of items such as figurines and candles, pictures and art reflecting couples and romantic representations, pictures of you and your significant other.  It is not recommended to put photographs of your children and family in your master bedrooms. Photographs of your family are better served in areas of your home where family is dominant, such as living rooms, family rooms, playrooms and hallways. The bedroom is a romantic oasis, not a place to display photos of mom, dad or the kids. 


                       


Singles Bedrooms 

Whether male or female singles looking for love need to create a romantic boudoir to prepare your room for another; two nightstands, two lamps, two throw pillows on the bed. Remove exercise equipment, family pictures, excess dolls and stuffed animals. Enhance the room as you would the Love and Marriage area of the Bagua, with pairs of items, and romantic art depicting pairs of subjects such as people, animals, flowers, trees or sculptures. All these further energize your desire and intention to be romantically involved. 

Furnishings and D├ęcor

Televisions in bedrooms tend to activate you and do not allow for restful sleep. I like many others like watching TV in bed, but I find I get better sleep when I turn off the TV, close it up, and read for a few minutes before “lights out”.  The key is to keep the TV in a cabinet or armoire so it can be closed upon retiring.  If this can’t be done, I have recommended placing a decorative drape over the TV so that the electromagnetic screen isn’t staring at you all night.

Bedrooms should be relatively free of clutter; especially avoid accumulating clutter under the bed, as it obstructs the flow of Ch’i. Also avoid keeping exercise equipment or home office items in bedrooms as they signify work. 

The rule of thumb for mirrors in the bedroom is “one or less, and not facing the bed.” Mirrors are too active for the tranquility of bedrooms. If you or your children have the misfortune of having large closet door mirrors, and find it hard to get restful sleep, you may consider curtaining them at night or adding decorative wooden or screen like panels instead. 

Enjoy the rejuvenation powers of your bedroom. Nighty night!

Virtual Feng Shui Consultations Are Easy, Fun, and Very Rewarding

Feng Shui is the study and practice of arranging your environment to help you achieve your life goals. What better way to enjoy a Feng Shui Consultation than in the comfort of your own home?

Throughout the pandemic all my consultations were virtual. The upside of this is that it allowed me to spread Feng Shui energy to all corners of the U.S., and internationally including Canada and South Africa. 

All it takes is a picture of the layout of your home and pictures of each room. Then we arrange for a two-hour phone consultation.
