The Front Door
Front Door: The front door, or main door is very important in feng shui. It is where the house gets its chi, or energy so the healthier, stronger and more balanced the front door is, the stronger the quality of that energy will be! You'll want to create an open, unobstructed energy flow to the front door, meaning no garbage/recycling bins, old pots of dead plants, rakes or garden hoses, etc. laying around. A smooth, meandering path rather than a sharp direct pathway is the ideal. If your door faces East, its element will be Wood and the best colors for your door will be green and brown. South facing doors should have a red, yellow, purple or pink door. It is associated with the element of Fire. Western facing doors prefer white and gray colors associated with the Earth element. A North facing doors represented by water should have a black or blue door.
The Living Room
Living Room: Having lots of natural light and good quality air is extremely important to the main living room. Just as there are specific colors that will help you create positive feng shui energy in your living room, there are also specific decorating shapes that can strengthen the desired prosperous and happy feng shui energy there too. Each shape is an expression of a specific feng shui element, so choose the best shape based on the feel of your living room. For example, if you want to harness tranquil water energy into your living room, then wavy shapes resembling the flow of water can create wonderful energy.

Good feng shui bedroom decor will be very well balanced to promote the best flow of energy for restorative sleep, as well as sexual healing. The best feng shui bedroom colors are considered the so-called "skin colors" or skin toned shades, so choosing neutral or earthy colors ranging from pale white to deep, rich brown will certainly work well.

The modern feng shui bathroom has become a cosy haven of treat, luxury and pleasure. Adding soft candle lighting and air purifying plants will help keep the energy fresh and alive! Placing crystals near the window of the bathroom will also help to keep the energy circulating.
