Decorating Faux Pas That Zap Our Energy

January 21, 2010 by  
Filed under Blogs, Decorating

Beware of energy zappers that suck the life out of your rooms . . . and lives.   Commit to addressing those pesky problem areas that cause undue stress and fatigue.  

  • Clutter and disorganization heighten anxiety.  
    • Although our reactions to the chaos that surrounds us are often internalized and go unnoticed, the long term effects, anxiety and stress, are very real.  All of our senses react negatively to presence of clutter. Understand that there is order in the universe. Why not bring it into your home?
  • Oversized furniture or too much furniture that is haphazardly shoved into small places infringe on your personal space.
    • We often ‘make do’ with pieces of furniture that we don’t like, don’t fit or no longer resonate with our creative senses. Get rid of it.  Sell unloved items at your next garage sale, on Craigslist or give them away to charity.  Bring items that you love into your space and make sure they fit the size of your room. (Check out your local Thrift Stores and Consignment Shops for great buys.)
  • Poor furniture placement is as unsightly as it is annoying.
    • Too many people live around their furnishings rather than with them.  Furniture placement should be pleasing to the eye and offer uncomplicated traffic patterns. For example, people shouldn’t have to walk around a couch to get to a door wall or move the bar stools to access the kitchen.
  • Too little room between furnishings or accessories assaults our visual senses and reduces our feeling of space.  
    • The energizing power of Chi, or life-force, needs the opportunity to flow in and around objects. 
  • Fake plants are, well . . . fake.
    • Bring energy, harmony and soothing life forces back into your rooms with vibrant, healthy plants.
  • Damaged furniture is a real downer.
    • Battered, scarred or worn and torn furnishings are bothersome reminders that we need to repair, refinish or restore those ancient relics.   Commit to your renovation projects or . . . you got it . . . get rid of them. 
  • Hard or sharp furnishings can be cold and unforgiving.
    • Soften harsh lines or hard surfaces with comforting fabrics and rounded objects or edges.
