FengShui: Optimize Positive Energy In Your Home

Ready to choose your fengshui color?

This quick and easy fengshui color guide will surely help you creating the best possible choice concerning the color customization of your entire household.

It is always a tricky decision when it comes to choosing the conclusive color of a room in our house. Instantly we question ourselves: what do we want the room to express? Choosing from a plethora of colors such as vibrant pink for your living room, all the way to light shades of green for your bedroom -can cause a blatant disequilibrium corresponding to the energy of the entire living space.

Fengshui is an ancient Chinese philosophical practice that shed light on the importance related to the placement of decorative ornaments or practical objects, with the intent to sustain harmonious vibrations throughout the household. A social reformer by the name of Florence Nightingale vividly expressed this very essence later in the 19th century– “the objects and color in the materials around us actually have a physical effect on us, on how we feel”. By using the right color in an interior and exterior space can potentially reveal an extraordinary calming effect on the human mind that creates inner strength and self-confidence.

Utilizing colors according to the fengshui philosophy will blossom the interior design of your personal space, whilst simultaneously creating a balanced atmosphere that energizes your home with harmony and coziness.

In this article we will explore the influence of each color and will give you a couple of tips to assist you in defining your dominant color, to ultimately create a vibrant atmosphere that will make you feel right at home by harmonizing everyone with the surrounding environment.

Mosaic Patterns: Celebrating Climate in Pieces

The mosaics in Julie Sperling’s “Fiddling while Rome burns” series each tackle a different trend or concept, from rising temperatures to changing precipitation trends to the difference between weather and climate. Her artistic statement has the flair to persuade literal as well as global warnings to the heaps, improving an individual’s sense of commitment in the communal sense. The artist has been recently engaged in an ongoing series about climate change, titled Fiddling While Rome Burns. Her mosaics tackle specific climate-correlated concepts, impact or solution. Her concepts usually embark upon scientific, literary and political matters. There’s a different apparition for each of her mosaic patterns.Hence, she conveys her ideas and messages using a huge variety of mediums, each one carefully selected to create unique and theoretical patterns. While she does her best in her personal life, at work she often feels like her hands are tied. Such is the reality of being a small gear in the greater engine of federal bureaucracy.

As reported by Sperling, mosaic is a powerful medium to converse climate change, not only because of its germaneness, but also the manifested analogous between the art form and global climate change. Both require a lot of endurance through the gradual processes, but each one depends on the power of the cluster. Pieces of stones and glass come together to create images with an assemblage of pieces, accordingly our actions add up and make a difference in the fight against climate change.
