Feng Shui is a great tool to use for decorating ideas. Not only can you learn what colors work together, but you can also learn how their energies will help your life. With Feng Shui, you can easily color in your living room in a positive way. Whether you want to add luck to your life or you want to simply make the room feel better, Feng Shui has something for you.

The Power of Purple

One of the colors which is purported to be a sort of color for everything is purple. If you want to add drama to your living room as well as a little positive Feng Shui energy, purple is the color to choose. Available in a wide range of hues, this color is able to help you with luck, fortune, peace, spiritual matters, and even your children. No matter what might be happening in your life or what you want to happen, the power of purple and Feng Shui is hard to argue. You can add it on a wall as a bold statement or use it in your accessories as a splash of color.

Ways to Add Purple to Your Décor

But while you may learn what Feng Shui colors are good to use in a room, adding it is another story. You might not have a big budget for decorating (or any extra money at all), so does that mean you can’t use purple? Of course not. What you need to do is to look around your home for things you already have which have purple in them. These might be candles, pictures, or pillows. Or if you can’t find anything, you might want to print a picture from the Internet to hang in your living room in order to attract the purple energies. Be creative in the items you use for decoration and you will begin to feel a change as soon as you move them into your living room.

Balancing Your Design

What many people don’t understand about Feng Shui is that you don’t have to bathe an entire room in purple in order to make the living room effective. All you need to do is to add a piece or two to the room, then balance the other colors in a way that is appealing to you. That’s all. When you use too much purple, that will attract too much energy into the room, which is not going to be helpful either. Balance is the key.

When using purple in your accessories balance the placement around the room. Use it in three different areas of a room. Imagine placing the purple accessories at each point of a triangle (they don’t have to be exact placements). This will balance the use of color in the room.

When you want to dress up your living room, you need to look for subtle ways to add color as well as to add Feng Shui ideas. This way, you can enjoy a new look and a new energy without spending a lot of money.
