Children and Chi: The 7 Feng Shui Fundamentals for Children’s Rooms

Besides its uses for pursuing goals, feng shui is a very popular and intriguing concept in home design today. In addition to the life benefits it provides, it also offers a roadmap, so to speak, of not just how to decorate… but why. In short, it offers you, the homeowner, design with purpose, in addition to the aesthetic aspect. This is what is quickly becoming the real appeal of feng shui. For a child’s room, this meaningful design is especially important. Feng shui gives parents a guide for decorating childrens bedrooms, and perhaps more importantly, a reason for adding particular elements — something standard decorating practices don’t always offer.

The Feng Shui of Numbers

The Feng Shui of Numbers

Numbers are an integral part of feng shui, with each direction having its own corresponding digit. Certain numbers, such as 1, 6, and 8 are considered especially auspicious and confer excellent luck to anyone with these numbers in their address or telephone number. The number eight is considered particularly auspicious because it is also the shape of the infinity symbol (and a woman’s figure, too!;). In numerology, numbers are added together and reduced down to one number. However, this isn’t the practice in feng shui. Rather, it is the sounds of the numbers that create the best luck.
