When is the last time you redecorated? Or, for that matter, decorated? Our aesthetic surroundings have an impact as I was reminded after spending time in taupe and grey office surroundings. While it’s not something I pay much attention to, home is a different matter.
There’s already lots of vibrant color (no taupe or grey in sight) and I’m contemplating a mural. In the meantime I’ve enhanced décor. I was picking up a
drone handmade dish and decided to add a complimentary though non-identical dish. Then, I selected a floral piece and thought, why not get two?
I’ve never been one for matchy-matchy looks and noticed I was applying a feng shui principle. According to feng shui, decorating in pairs attracts love. While we could all use more love in our lives–no matter how much we already enjoy–that wasn’t my motivation.
Harmony hovered in my subconscious. Will these new pairs increase a sense of balance and harmony? They just might.
It follows logically that objects could increase awareness or reminders, which in turn may reinforce a sense of harmony. While this wouldn’t be due to the objects themselves, I do recommend beautiful reminders.
You may not have given much thought to decorating, but taking the time to surround yourself with what is most beautiful to you is worthwhile. Make it yours and that may very well be taupe or grey! Variety is the spice of life after all.
To pair or not to pair? To feng shui or not? To display that baseball card collection? What do you recommend?
