Balancing Act

I put together some random shots from design blogs that are all different styles of decor but have at least one thing in common: feng shui balance. My point is that you can create feng shui balance with any interior design look.

Feng shui balance is about shapes and sizes and pairings of furniture and accessories in a room. It’s also about having a good mix of the 5 elements: wood, fire, water, earth, metal.

I'd rather see a painting over this fireplace because the mirror= water and it puts out the fire. But otherwise it is a rather well balanced transitional room.

Having art really uplifts the ch’i energy of a room (see the top photo for a good example of this). Using the proper scale for the space is also important when you are choosing art and accessories and furniture.

A whole lot of pillows but it's still got good feng shui balance.


Think symmetry and balance when you put together a room. And be sure you don’t let one element overpower all others.
