I adore the presence of color white in my home decor, in flowers, art, clothing, etc. I love all colors (the brighter, the better!), but there is sure something about the purity and freshness of white that touches my heart in a way no other color can.
It brings calm and fresh peace to my space, and I love its energy for it!
In the language of 5 feng shui elements white color brings the presence of the Metal element. This is the energy of purity, preciseness, freshness, discipline and clarity.
Out of the 5 feng shui elements, I find the Metal element the one that is most misused, meaning either overused (which often creates a space that is cold and unwelcoming, even though it may look very chic) or underused (often the case with spaces that have tons of warmth and creativity but no structure or freshness).
So, how do you bring the Metal element in just the right amount?
As with the other articles on feng shui elements decorating, I am dividing the Metal element decorating basics in 3 clear and easy sections: “When”, “Where” and “How” to use it; and then the infographic below should help you assimilate and apply the feng shui info.
When you have feng shui questions, feel free to ask them here. Enjoy!
Work with the Metal feng shui element when you need crisp, clear, fresh and dynamic quality of energy in your home or office. You might need a stronger presence of the Metal feng shui element energy if you feel frustrated, overwhelmed, when you lack clarity with your direction in life or just experience low, lazy energy.
It is also good to bring the presence of Metal feng shui element when you start new business projects or want to move on to a whole new level with your life experiences.
The Metal feng shui element is needed in the West, Northwest and North bagua areas of your home or office (if you are working with the Classical feng shui bagua). If you are working with the Western/BTB bagua, then bring a strong Metal feng shui element decor in your Children & Creativity, Helpful People & Blessings and Career & Path in Life bagua areas.
The freshness, clarity and strong cooling energy of the Metal element can be expressed in colors white and gray, a variety of metallic finishes, in round shapes, as well as numerous decor items made from metal, of course!
Now let’s head on to explore the Water feng shui element decor, as this is the element that is most nourished by Metal.
