5 Ways to Create a More Peaceful Home
Turn your hectic home into the ultimate soothing space with these simple feng shui tips from Janice Sugita, author of The Feng Shui Equation.
"Remove anything that causes you stressful thoughts," Sugita says. Do keep a few items that make you smile, like treasured photos.
Certain hues bring on calm: Blue attracts creativity and prosperity, and green creates a feeling of new life in a room, Sugita says.
An overstuffed room can actually make you feel tense, so be sure to leave about 21/2 feet of walking space around the furniture.
Invite nature indoors
Open blinds to let in natural light, and place plants around the room: "Plants bring new life, growth, and oxygen to a space," Sugita says.
Balance it out
Love your glass coffee table? Pair it with something cozy, like a plush sofa. Softer elements in the room bring comfort; harder elements provide stability.
