How do we see the world? To the ancient Chinese, the art of positioning furniture, based on a belief in patterns of yin and yang determine the flow of chi that positively or negatively affects our lives.
Yang colors, according to Feng Shui, are the colors of fire and wood. They include red, orange, and yellow, but include beige, brown, mauve, and lavender and gold. Feng Shui believes that these colors motivate and provide you the enthusiasm required to do something.
Yin colors are the colors that heal and relax. They include blue, black, green, purple, and white. Each color has its own unique properties, for example, white represents poise, confidence, and wisdom.
Life, as we all know, is a series of moments, some good and some not so good. We attempt to achieve balance by exalting in the good moments and dealing with the bad. The use of multiple colors in room decorating reflects the many phases of life.
Then again life is also a matter of how we see things. A chair is but an object, a room is collection of objects that make for a unified whole. And, sometimes we need to step back, or above, to see things as they really are.
