What’s Wrong with This Picture?

Today, I read in a magazine an article on the do’s and don’ts of decoration with pictures on walls.  Walls frame the house and are the face of the entire living quarter. What you put on the walls will have bearings on the well-being of your family members.

Many people love the idea of hanging personal pictures or paintings on the walls in the living room especially above their sofa.  But from a Feng Shui point of view (Feng Shui is the balance of energies in spaces to bring about good health and fortune), the picture should never be larger than the sofa in the living room, larger than the table size in the dining room, larger than the working desk area in the study, or larger than the bed size in the bedroom.  If not, the young ones in the house will rule over the senior ones, and the staff will overpower the Master.

This decor seems to give better energy and happiness to the people living there.

Also, square and rectangular picture frames are preferred to round frames to create a better energy flow.

  1. The first photo is framed paintings all over the wall, and this makes the atmosphere in the room tiring. I really like the second picture.
    I hope you have a wonderful day and a great new week!
    With much love, Stefania! 🙂

  2. I guess the first one is really too “loaded”, too snobbish, too “melting pot” – for me… 🙂 I’m a simple person, not sophisticated… 🙂 Life is already complicated, I often avoid to make it more complicated… 🙂

    My very best, have a great day and a wonderful week, cheers! Mélanie
