We continue with our breaking down of the 5 elements of Feng Shui with Fire. Imagine there is energy in everything we do and create. We as designers are responsible to deliver balance to help maximize the use of the energy in the best possible way. Fire is all about leadership and positive direction in a space. With Fire it is easy to over do it.
When anger, load shouting or temper tantrums are present you know that the fire element needs to be toned down a bit. When done correctly and balance is achieved you will see strong direction and standout leadership. So if there is a battle royal of tempers and power tantrums blow out a few candles or adjust the natural light entering a room. Always experiment and always try to work with the energy flow.
When people think of fire they imagine fireplaces and candles but there are tons of other options. This idea can be achieved by using sunlight, electronic equipment and even animal prints. Also the fire element is also present in various shades of colors such as red, pink and purple.
Last note and something to always keep in mind is that the key for Feng Shui is balance and harmony in a space. Have fun playing around with a room but once you master the balance then you really have mastered Feng Shui for interior design.
