a fireplace the focus of the living room rather than having a large TV
and/or a collection of hi-fi equipment dominating the room. Feng Shui agrees
totally with this. If you can keep your TV to one side and minimize the
effect of hi-fi and other stuff, the room will feel far more welcoming.
Such equipment along with computer equipment is a mixture of the elements of
metal and water and while a little of these is wonderful, too much of them
dominating the room is not good.
A nice square or rectangular living room is best, as there is nowhere for
Chi to collect and stagnate. Unless your room is very small, avoid pushing
the furniture against the walls so that it ends up looking like a dentists
waiting room but arrange your seating in a horse shoe formation so that
everybody can feel comfortable.
If your living room is not rectangular but an odd shape, put a plant in the
odd shaped end in order to liven it up and to prevent stale Chi from
gathering. Try to avoid sitting with your back to the door, as this will
make you feel insecure.
Use a mirror over a fireplace that has been blocked off to make a small room
seem more spacious. Avoid placing seats under a beam, as this will make the
occupant insecure. Furniture shape and size must be in keeping with the
room. Cushions and soft furnishings soften a room and introduce a touch of
feminine Yin into a heavily masculine room.
Use the less importantly numbered areas of your room for sideboards,
shelving, plants and other 'fillers'. Try to keep the centre of this room
and the dining table tidy, if you have one, because this is considered to be
a minor health area which will encourage well-being if it is kept clear of
clutter and mess. Flowers and plants will encourage good Chi and they will
soften any secret arrows that are in the room. It is considered inauspicious
to use dried flowers and any cut flowers should be thrown out before they
start to die.
Mirrors are useful when you need to extend an area of the house but avoid
placing it in such a way that the reflection cuts your head in half when you
are seated. A mirror over a fireplace as this is said to encourage good Chi
to vanish up the chimney, but if the fireplace is ornamental and not
actually used as an open fire, this is fair enough.
A mirror over a fireplace can make a small room feel larger and brighter. A
tank of fish is considered a wonderful thing for promoting luck, money,
harmony and peace. If your living room is situated at the front of the house
this is definitely a great place to have one.
