Furnish the first home philosophically
Designing environments following Eastern practicesFuture spouses or life partners, if you are up against your first household furnishings, you will definitely face the dilemma of furniture arrangements and choice of colours.
Here's some inspiration to make the Kingdom of your love perfect and harmonious.
The sun's rays must "embrace" the house,
therefore the part facing north-east will be the most energetic component of the apartment, while the south-west exposed part, where the sun sets, would be dedicated to rest.
Why are arrangements and colours important?There are some practices and philosophies such as Feng Shui, that can be applied to the furnishing of the house to ensure well-being and harmony for those who live there.
Placing the furniture in certain points of the room or in a certain way helps to transfer positive energy within the environments.
Similarly, the colours are vitally important because they can influence in several ways the soul of people.
Choosing a yellow, red or multi-colour kitchen for example can help create a stimulating and positive environment.
Preferring furniture or walls in blue or green instead, assists with relaxation and balance.
The sun’s energy and the position of the roomsAnother Indian principle, Vastu Vidya, is instead a design based on the sun's energy.
The sun's rays must "embrace" the house, therefore the part facing north-east will be the most energetic component of the apartment, while the south-west exposed part, where the sun sets, would be dedicated to rest.
The ideal position for the kitchen is the south-east corner of the house.
Sink and stove, then, should not be in contact, but at a distance of at least 10 cm.
The dining or living room should be positioned on the Western part with chairs and armchairs facing East and West.
The colour shades recommended for this space are light blue, blue or light green because they facilitate digestion.
Yellow is ideal if you often receive guests.
Bedroom, mirrors and bathroomThe best location for the bedroom is to the south-west, while the position of the bed is influential.
However the Vastu Vidya does not recommend the use of mirrors reflecting the bed because they can disturb sleep.
All colours are appropriate, but red and orange are the best to create a warm and sensual atmosphere.
The only point not recommended for bathrooms is the north-east, the rest all go well.
In this area mirrors and plants are recommended because they are of positive elements that increase the flow of energy.
Lighting should instead be soft yet diffused.
These are inspirations to positively stimulate energy in the house; the rest is up to your love!
