We are surrounded by both positive as well as negative energies. However, Vastu Shastra is a tool which provides guidelines to help us understand, analyze and rectify the flow of energy around us so that a positive environment is created by preparing a smooth pathway for the flow of energy into any given space be it a home or an office structure. There are many factors and objects which help in decorating and doing up the interiors of the house. The most important ones have been listed below along with the Vatsu guidelines which back each one of them.
The entrance of the house creates the first impression about the inmates of the house. In other words, the entrance is responsible for setting up the tone of one’s life within the house. The entrance affects moods and perceptions drastically. It is always said that the first impression is the last impression if you happen to enter into a dark, crowded and oppressive place, what kind of impact would it leave on your mind about the house and the people living within it? Hence, Vastu advices to always choose meaningful and pleasant objects to welcome guests and visitors from the main entrance door before stepping inside.
Any home décor is incomplete without the presence of live plants and flowers. It is believed that plants carry live force energy or Prana into the living space and even assist in keeping the air purified. Good green energy and vitality is added to the interior spaces of the house by plants which filter the air we breathe. Hence, always plant healthy and strong plants and take good care of your plants.
Sunlight has the power to cheer and uplift any space with its brightness, warmth and energy. Hence, it is very important for the auspicious morning sun’s rays to enter the premises and brighten it up. Make sure that the house has enough windows on the east which can welcome maximum sunlight.
Murals and Paintings:-
Wall murals and paintings are the modern way of bridging the gap between nature and modern architecture, invented through environmental graphics. These natural patterns are brought to life with the help of these graphics which tend to resonate the house with their strong influence. However, Vastu rules should be followed completely while placing paintings and wall murals which not only support you but also your home.
