Eco-friendly window treatments are in line with Feng Shui principles
Apr 1 2011
The principle behind the ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui is to enhance energy in one's home that is beneficial to health, prosperity and relationships.
The ancient Chinese design philosophy, Feng Shui, incorporates eco-friendly features to enhance energy in a home.
As a spiritual tradition of interior design, it relies on the correct arrangement of furnishings and uncluttered spaces that allow energy to flow into all areas. But the use of light and color also play a role in creating positive Feng Shui in a home.
"Have enough lighting in the rooms because light is an important source of energy," according to FengShuiHelp.org. "In dull spaces where natural light from the window is limited, paint the walls with yellow, which represents sunlight."
Certain colors are believed to create an emotional response from individuals, but they can have varying effects on different people. "Dark colors can either be relaxing or depressing, light colors can be uplifting or annoying, and extreme colors can be exhilarating or aggravating," states RentalDecorating.com. "Pay attention to how these colors make you feel."
Bringing more light into a room can be achieved by the right selection of window treatments. Using eco-friendly window treatments such as bamboo shades is in keeping with the natural aspect of Feng Shui. They also have unique variations in color and texture that can offset many styles of décor.
