We are mostly all aware of the ideas behind Feng-shui, even if we do not actively use or apply them in our life-style choices and day to day routines. Originally widely used to identify the most appropriate and energising orientation of buildings, Feng-shui principles can be usefully applied in the home, even without knocking down walls or re-orienting staircases. If you feel that your home is draining you and are not sure why, think about the impact of plopping down a colorful Dayln area Rug Appraisals onto a drab carpet, tired laminate or weary walkway – instant lift, but why?
In Feng-shui, the role of color is generally thought to bring balance and energy into spaces. Even if we are not ‘into’ Feng-shui, we all understand the effect of colors around us on our mood. Why else, if making over a room because the decor has become shabby or because the atmosphere does not appeal to us in some way, is color likely to be one of our first considerations? Thus, the introduction of a focus color to a room that you spend a number of hours a day in can have a key impact on your mood and well-being.
Where we have no control over the color of walls and floors, such as in a corporate building or designated office, we have to work with the next best thing, which would be accessorizing our furnishings to achieve a chosen atmosphere for the room, and a rug can be a quick means by which we can do this.
Consider these key colors and how they could best suit to the atmosphere you want to create and convey:
Red: for vitality and ambition, a good color if you need a strong, can-do business vibe around you!
Orange: can act as an anti-depressant by adding a joyful vibe.
Yellow: acts as a mental stimulant and is uplifting, which can be particularly useful in a room where there is little or no natural light.
Blues and greens: these calming colors set an atmosphere of peace and tranquility, which encourages therapeutic surroundings.
Purple: thought to be spiritually stimulating, particularly useful where you need a creative vibe in a room.
Use a Dalyn area rug on a prominent floor space to hook into such colors and create the atmosphere you desire. Add block pictures at eye level and scatter cushions if your seating arrangement allows, so even if you are restricted to corporate walls and flooring, you can begin to Feng-shui your office space to best suit your atmosphere or mood.
The fact that some Dalyn area rugs carry a mix of vibrant and interesting colors means that there will always be an element of the mood you are aiming to create, even if you are something of a karma-chameleon!
