Easy Ways to Uplift the Look and Feel of Your Home with Feng Shui

Try these simple, inexpensive ideas to bring new life into your spaces!
flwnd23    Does your house ever leave you feeling blah, or uninspired? Often we get used to the things in our homes that we don’t even notice them any more, yet it is often the very things that we have gotten used to that need to be changed or spruced up in order to give our homes (and us) a lift. Here are some easy, inexpensive tips and inspiring photos that can help you freshen up the look and feel of your home.

Slipcovers are better than ever. Stretchy fabrics cover couches and chairs in ways that make them look brand new without looking like they are slip covered. It will look like you splurged on new furniture without the cost.
Artwork can become boring and uninspiring, and may not reflect the interests or tastes we have as they change over time. Go on sites like art.com for a huge selection of inexpensive art. You can shop from the comfort of your home and be sure you’ll find a piece that fits your taste, your wall, and your budget!
 
Area rugs are great ways to give a room a new color scheme and a fresh look. You can use the colors in the rug to add accents to the room with pillows, candles, and accessories to tie the room together. Don’t be afraid to put an area rug over a carpet. It is a much less expensive alternative to replacing an old carpet and will give a tired room new vibrance.
New Hardware and Fixtures can bring fresh life to a kitchen or bathroom. Door handles, drawer pulls, and even inexpensive light fixtures will update the look of these rooms in no time.

Start Your Year off Right with Feng Shui

    The New Year  is a time for letting go of the old and making way for the new. It is a time of cleansing, healing, and hope. In order to start the year off right, we must assess what is and is not working in our lives, let go of what no longer serves us, cleanse our own energy and the energy in our homes, and put forth our intention for the year to come. Here are four very important steps that will help you make 2016 your best year yet!

Step One: Assessment
When beginning a new year it’s important to step back and assess what is and is not working in your life and make adjustments accordingly. My Life Assessment Inventory was created to help you determine areas of your life that you’d like to improve, and lets you know the part of the home to enhance to help support those areas. Life is dynamic and changes all the time. The answers to provide today will most likely be different than ones you may have had in the past, and those you will have in the future. The Life Assessment Inventory gives you a snapshot of where you are in your life right now and helps you move forward in the right direction. Click Here to take the Inventory.
Step Two: Letting Go of What No Longer Serves You
There’s no time better for getting rid of what no longer serves you than the beginning of a new year. While most people don’t relish the idea of spending time cleaning out cupboards, closets, and the garage, everyone can pretty much agree that it feels incredible once the task is done. In order to make way for the new, we must remove the old. In feng shui, clutter represents stuck energy and postponed decisions.
