Surprisingly, but the studio apartment is considered the most successful variant in terms of creating harmonious space by the rules of feng shui. Judge for yourself: here everything is compact, residential area, usually has the shape of a rectangle (without branches in unwanted side), and the plan of this apartment is good and "convenient" lies bagua grid - the main tool of Feng Shui. So Feng Shui studio is quite feasible on her small living space. Let's start from the beginning.
If you already know how to use this simple tool, you know how to identify all the zones of influence in your home. If not, proceed as follows.
Draw a plan of his one-room apartment and determine its location relative to the cardinal. Take a compass and find which overlooks the North. If the compass to get a problem, just look at which side of your windows the sun goes down - there is the West. And from then on will be dismantled. So, having found in his apartment north, mark it on the plan and apply the plan grid Bagua, aligning it with your northern zone North.
Next - simpler. Imposing a grid, you will immediately see which zones of influence in some parts of the house are located. And these areas as much as many as nine:
Center House - Area of Health.
North - Career Zone.
South - the zone of Fame.
West - Area of Creativity.
East - a zone of Families.
South-west - the zone of love.
South-east - a zone of wealth.
North-west - the zone of Helpers.
North-east - a zone of Knowledge.
Now you just put all the functional areas of your home according to the zones of influence of feng shui. You can, of course, begin immediately to move furniture, moving the "bed of love" in the romantic zone, and the desktop in the area of career. Good option. If possible, it is well worth it to do. But you can do fewer victims, preserving the functional concept of the interior.
Clean Energy Home
First you need to clean your house from all negativity. First of all get rid of the trash: unnecessary and superfluous things. Apartment and so are not particularly big, so why should it still clutter? Take a good look around: Here is a bookcase that you rearrange from corner to corner, you really need? A reproduction of an old wall, which you were given at school? But empty flower pots, lonely is perched on the windowsill? All - overboard. We do not need your "right" apartment unnecessary things.
And now look at the case. They looked? And what did you see there? Remember the golden rule fashionistas: if the thing stayed there in the closet never to wear more than a year, then you it will never wear. Throw away (or giving) all such wardrobe items! Well, after the cabinet walk-audit on all the shelves, bedside tables, drawers and tables. Many nagrebli trash? That's right. He does not belong here.
Then proceed to the destruction of the second enemy of positive energy - debris and dirt. Freshly washed floor, the absence of dust and soot-free web corners. You have all this way? Then the free flow of positive energy of your house is not obstructed. And that is exactly what is required by the rules of feng shui.
Activating the zone of influence
If you already have clean, trash expelled from the house and breathe it freely and easily, then try to activate the results on the grid Bagua zone of influence. For areas such creativity and assistant "activator" would be metal to metal furniture, figurines, souvenirs, located in these areas positively affect your creative energy and contribute to outside help. Water (aquarium, fountain) in the area of Career positive impact on career advancement and salary increases. Flower pots with soil in the area of knowledge and love of stepping up intelligence and love passion. Wood (all kinds) - The family element zones and wealth, and the fire (candles, for example) is appropriate in the zone of Fame.
In addition to the symbolic elements for each zone will be superfluous charms. For good luck - a horse, sunflower, fish-dragon, a cat with a raised paw. For love - any pair of objects, swans, hearts, dolphins. For wealth: coins, a horn and a bowl of abundance, money toad (fish). To protect - turtle, lion, rhino. Put the amulets in zones that in your opinion, "inactive", and you will be happy (on Feng Shui).
Curb conflict elements
The most contentious location (in terms of Feng Shui) in a studio apartment is the kitchen. This is where the neighborhood two warring elements: water and fire. So try to "dissolve" them from each other as far as possible: a sink and a stove, microwave and refrigerator should not be there. And if you did not get to do it, then at least create a barrier between the wood (planks, wooden panels, cork panel).
Another possibility is "natural" of the conflict - the neighborhood of metal and wood. Try and resolve such a conflict, and neutralizer for such enmity will land divorce indoor plants growing in the ground and use flower pots in that capacity. The Earth element of all conflict-free and can successfully neutralize not only metal and wood, but also water and fire.
Here are "sleeping" in the order (on Feng Shui)
Separate bedroom in a studio apartment, of course, do not you organize. Therefore it is necessary to use the "furniture" reserves. The furniture in this house at all - headache hosts. Many do not deliver, but few - may not be enough. Therefore, one-bedroom apartments often use the furniture-transformer. But feng shui, this approach is not welcomed. But if you have nowhere to go, then at least follow the rules:
Do not leave the couch (where sleep) Decomposition let in a form in your home it is only at night. However, turning the sofa into a bed, make sure that that the head was not near the potted flowers near the front door or by the window, and even more, a computer and a TV (even switched off). Do not hang a mirror in the room so that they reflect the sleeper (any part of the body).
To protect the bed, use screens and partitions, between a sofa and a window sofa and the door. If you have a small child and, accordingly, a cot, then do not put it in the window or the door and move away from the desktop. In an extreme case, erecting a canopy over the bed and hook on the side walls of the crib curtain.
We are looking for a compromise
A good compromise for the organization of the living space will be her studio design in accordance with the date of birth, or rather, with the element of birth. To find your element, you just need to look at the last digit of the year of birth:
metal - zero and one;
water - two and three;
tree - four and five;
fire - six and seven;
Plot - eight and nine.
Oddly, but in the design of the apartment on Feng Shui, in accordance with the elements of the rule of birth "to the contrary." That is, you need to use a neutralizing colors and charms.
The element of fire
The colors of wood and earth: all shades of green, brown, wheat, muted yellow. Accessories and furnishings made of wood and metal. Images of landscapes (photographs, reproductions, view from the window). Books (also wood, among others). But remember that only a moderate amount of all this can strengthen your "fire".
The elements of fire and metal are welcome. Water and wood are undesirable. To activate the element of Earth, you can use white candles or wall lamp with a milky white shades. The colors - bright, golden, silver, red, yellow and orange.
The element of metal
This element to balance the elements of water and earth, and the tree in moderation: the aquarium, books, wooden furniture. Colors - blue, light blue, azure, black, brown and ocher. Seascapes, "water" patterns, glass, amber, seashells: all this will balance and soften the metal.
Elements of water
Beneficial impact on this element of wood, earth and metal. Stone souvenirs and furnishings, rock crystal, gold (brass, copper), wooden sculptures, green plants, "the music of wind" and the sounds of nature - that is what activates your element. The color scheme must include shades of purple and turquoise, orange and red.
The element of wood
It activates the fire: candles, images of fire, sun (sunsets and sunrises), the bright lights. Water is also essential for energy supply were born under the element of wood: fountains and aquariums, seascapes, glass. And, of course, all the colors of water and fire: blue, blue, black, red, orange. Just remember that in order to enhance its elements have to choose only one (maximum two) element is not warring, either fire or water.
Mastering and implement feng shui studio, do not follow blindly the rules and guidelines. East East and harmonious living space could be organized and European rules. The main thing is that you feel comfortable. A compromise is always a time and place.
