2023 Feng Shui Home Decor for the Year of the Rabbit
Stuck with home décor ideas for the new year? Get inspired by Feng Shui in the spirit of the Chinese New Year. Incorporate balance and natural elements in your home as we hop into the Year of the Rabbit.
Embrace the Elements
We have the Earth element where you can have earthy shades in your room or sharper edges. The water element may entice you to add mirrors and curved-shaped items. The wood element involves nature-inspired colors and wooden furniture. You can add fire elements to your home by adding candles and bold colors such as red and orange. Lastly, the metal element is said to bring focus and productivity by adding a dash of gold, iron and silver to your home.
Run With the Rabbit
Channel the elegance, peace and mild manner of the water rabbit into your own living space. You can do this by simply decluttering or working on home fixtures. If you are up for it, start early with your annual spring cleaning. Nothing says home like a sparkly clean countertop or an organized bookshelf. Since the Year of the Rabbit is also expected to be the year of healing, why not start at home?
One of the foundations of Feng Shui is the commanding position. This pertains to the control you have over your energy and space. At home, this is an area in a room where you have the clearest view of everything. This means you have a full view of whoever enters that room. Apply this in your home by placing furniture such as your bed or sofa in a commanding position where you can see the door without facing you directly and without the décor blocking your view.
Can’t decide on a new exterior or interior color for your house? Maybe it’s your time to make a statement this year. Try opting for the lucky colors for the Year of the Rabbit. Paint your house or get home decorations with the colors azure, light green, red and pearl white. You can select one or do a combination of these lucky colors.
Bring In the Balance
One of the aims of Feng Shui is to achieve balance through the concept of “yin” and “yang.” Bring balance into your home by adding just the right amount of dark and light colors. You can also add decors that look soft and furniture that look sharp. Thanos may not be a Taoist or into Chinese philosophy. He did word it perfectly when he said, “perfectly balanced, as all things should be.”
