This is what some of my blogger friends call a “drool worthy room”. Elle Decor has the entire makeover of the barn this bedroom is situated in if you click here. I love the bed and the whitewashed bare barn but I always look with feng shui eyes. So let’s improve the feng shui here with some Feng Shui By Fishgirl touches:
1) Beam me up, Scottie! There are not only beams from the ceiling, but also cross beams from the twig bed. An easy fix is to tie a white linen or cotton “crumb-catcher” canopy to the bed. You can find a sheer fabric so you still have a light airy feel to it. White equals metal in feng shui terms and metal cuts the impact of the wooden beams. That disperses the energy so you don’t feel oppressive weight bearing down on you while you’re trying to get a good night’s rest in that gorgeous twig bed!
2) Balanced Side Tables…unless this is a guest room where one won’t be staying long, the feng shui would be better served by two matching nightstands and/ or two matching lamps. If it’s the master bedroom, the idea is to have equal balance so that no partner has dominance over the other. Unless you’re into that kind of thing of course, but that’s a different blog altogether!
3) Poison Arrows…the uncovered windows are in alignment (directly across from each other) and this causes a “poison arrow” of too-fast-moving ch’i. Again, a filmy cloth barrier would do the trick and still let the light and openness into the room. It doesn’t need to be a curtain. It could be a shade or shoji screen or even a bead curtain. Use your creativity!
