Did you know that in feng shui, turquoise is used for attracting wealth and money? It’s also used as a cure to improve one’s health and well-being, and has a calming energy, making it a perfect choice for children’s rooms, home offices, and the family rooms.
So stick a turquoise-colored something in the south-east corner of your home, and boom, you’re all wealthy and healthy and stuff. And if not, you at least have some cute furniture. Like this dresser from Shanna at Restoration Redoux. Oooh, ombré!
And how fun are these chairs from Better After reader Amy? Zesty orange fabric paired with our soothing color, it makes me want to sit down and dance!
Party continues on the back!
Obviously this buffet wasn’t attracting any positive powers into the world, other than the power to positively give you splinters, but Better After reader Hanna changed that with a loving coat of aqua. She sold it to a family planning to use it as a media center, and they’re probably just rolling around in health and wealth as we speak.
If you don’t have room in the proper feng shui quadrant of your home for a large item, an accessory should do the trick too.
Here’s an easy vase makeover from Lesley at Grateful Plummers. Pairing it with a cow painting harmonizes the energy even more; a surefire path for attracting more moo-lah. Ha! Get it?! Oh, nevermind.
Beth at B & B Build a Life was crazy about this Pottery Barn box she found at a thrift store, but so much the shiny red.
She turned it into a health and wealth generating machine with some super-cute (and calming) contact paper. Nice job lining up those edges perfectly, Beth!
And I adore these twin tables from Jen at Girl in the Garage. They can come to my house and feng my shui anytime. That sounded weird. Anyway, they are just lovely, and the gilded gold edges are the perfect touch. I feel healthier just looking at them!
