Hey feng shui – there’s a new interior design system in town! Known as ‘the science of architecture’, vastu shastra is based on an ancient Hindu tradition, focusing on the ow of energy around a living space. Said to bring positivity to your mind and home, modern day variations consist of simple rules on direction and placement of objects. Broken down into each room of the house, it’s easy to apply these rules to whatever type of abode you might live in – you don’t need to have bags of space to make these changes.
As winter nights draw in and snuggling on the sofa becomes our pastime of choice, there’s no better time to take a look at the space around you and make it more harmonious. Vastu Shastra Guru suggests these tips for your living room area:
* Use white, light yellow, blue or green colours for painted walls.
Place your TV in the south-east corner of the room.
Keep plants in the north-east corner, as well as a bowl of sea salt, changed regularly.
