PAINTED HEADBOARD ENHANCES FENG SHUI

Photo courtesy Marie Claire magazine.

Here where Feng Shui By Fishgirl is headquartered, it’s freezing rain and very overcast today. So I’m looking for inspiration and color. Creativity can take my breath away. When I see something beautiful that also happens to enhance feng shui, I get a really happy feeling inside. This photo does that for me today. I might change my mind tomorrow, but today this is it. I know, I know, I’m always advocating headboards for good feng shui, right? That still holds true. But this painted wall takes the place of a headboard because

* It’s designed to lift your gaze –and the ch’i energy–upward which balances the bed and gives a headboard effect.

* It’s got an incredibly lovely scene of auspicious apple blossoms and birds and the sun—all great ch’i enhancers.

*The colors are lovely and especially so if this bedroom is located in the Love & Relationship area.

*There are two matching lamps bedside (always good in feng shui terms).

*The overhead light is covered with a round (yin!) paper lantern…very soft and a good solution to the feng shui problem of hardware over the bed.

Now to give credit where credit is due: I found this pic at Hidden in France and Corine found it at Marie Claire Maison and they found it was an actual chic new hotel you can stay at in Belgium.
