How to Use Feng Shui Shapes and Elements in Home Decor
Hello, how are you today? Welcome to our blog About Home. We hope you are very well and looking forward to a new post, project, or tutorial for your home.
Today we want to share with you something special:
In feng shui, each shape belongs to a specific element, Discover which elements are better for your home!
There are five elements of feng shui and several basic ways to carry or express these elements in your home. Start with the first feng shui element, the Fire element.
Triangles and Stars
The elements of decoration with stars and triangular shapes belong to the Fire feng shui element. When you choose a lamp (fire energy) in the form of a fire element (star), you are bringing a strong feng shui fire element into your home.
While all homes can benefit from more heat (fire), décor items with strong fire element shapes are best avoided in these three Bagua areas:
Are there areas in your home where you can have as many fire shapes, colors, and decor elements as you like? Yes. There are two feng shui areas in your home that benefit greatly from a strong Fire element: the south and the southwest.
Feel free to decorate these two areas with shapes of Fire elements (like triangles or stars); colors (such as red, purple, or glowing yellow), images of fire, or decor elements with the real fire element (fireplace or candles).
Star-shaped lanterns in red, orange, white, and blue
The square shape belongs to the feng shui element of the Earth. The easiest way to remember this association is to feel how the square shape expresses the energy of the earth: grounded, stable, protective, and balanced.
Therefore, in feng shui, the square shape brings a balanced, stable, and strong feng shui energetic element of Earth that is good in any Bagua area of your home except two feng shui areas.
You don't want a strong earthy element, be it earthy colors, earthy images, or strong square-shaped decor elements in the following areas of your home:
Feng Shui of circular and round shapes
The round shape in feng shui decoration is an expression of the Metal feng shui element. Circular décor elements bring into your home the energy of clarity, precision, freshness, and equality that is the essence of the Metal feng shui element.
You have probably noticed that when you are in a space with large circular windows, for example, or a large round rug, your energy is more invigorated and more active. The round shape activates your energy and keeps it going; it is very active energy, albeit subtly expressed.
This is one of the reasons why a round table is the best shape for a table in many homes and businesses - it is the shape that allows a free, fresh, and equitable flow of energy between all members of the family or business.
With regards to Feng Shui, there are several areas in your home where it is best to limit many decor items to metal items. Avoid decorating with large round shapes in the following areas of the bagua:
Similarly, there are several bagua areas in your home that benefit greatly from the Metal element, whether it is expressed in colors like white and gray, real metal decor, or round/circular shaped elements.
Feel free to bring strong ways of decorating metallic elements into these bagua areas:
Wavy, fluid, and curved shapes in your home decoration
Any decorative element with wavy, flowing, or curved patterns or shapes is an expression of the Water feng shui element. It's easy when you think of a shape as an expression of the actual energy of a feng shui element.
Water is fluid, flowing and infinitely elegant, which is why the best home decoration expressions of the feng shui element of water are the wavy and curved or sinuous shapes in the decoration elements and designs.
There are several areas in your home where decorating the water element of feng shui is very welcome. These are the following areas of Bagua:
There are also Bagua areas where it is best to limit a lot of wavy, flowing, or curved patterns in your home décor. Limit them to:
As in nature, water is most expressive when it is embraced by the earth. The same applies to the shapes that represent them.
It is best (and most powerful) when you use the flowing forms of the Water element in combination with the more defined forms of the Earth and Metal elements.
Feng Shui decoration with rectangles
In feng shui, the rectangle shape is an expression of the Wood feng shui element. This applies to both horizontal and vertical rectangles, with vertical rectangles being the most powerful expressions of active wood.
It is easy to understand why the rectangular shape expresses the feng shui element of wood: its energy grows upwards just like the tree.
There are several baguá spaces in your home that benefit from the Wood element, whether expressed in a rectangular-shaped decoration, in green and brown colors, or in real pieces of wood.
Feel free to bring a decoration with strong wooden elements in the following areas:
There are also several areas where it is best to limit the decoration with strong shapes or colors of wooden elements. Avoid too many rectangular shapes in these areas
