What Not To Do in Your Bedroom: 5 Feng Shui Decorating Mistakes

Avoid these feng shui mistakes if you want to enjoy good energy in your bedroom

Human nature tends to be strange. We overlook things that are really important for our well-being, while investing time into transient and superficial things. We keep saying we want love and happiness, while our actions often show the opposite. In the spirit of this contradictory human nature, here are five feng shui decorating mistakes to understand (and avoid) if you want to enjoy good energy in your bedroom.

Why do you need to focus on the bedroom? Because it holds a powerful energetic key to your health, your vitality and your love life. Your bedroom is the most important room in the house, and the most important space responsible for your well-being on all levels.

Your essential life force energy, your sensual energy, is nourished in your bedroom, so you need to have really good energy there. Let’s start.

1. Decorate with tall mirrors facing the bed

Mirrors can be very beautiful and alluring. especially the tall mirrors in ornate frames. Mirrors are also a powerful feng shui cure used for a variety of energetic purposes. Placed properly, mirrors can create a sense of luxury, expansion, and beauty as no other decor element can.

However, when it comes to good energy in your bedroom, a big tall mirror is always best to avoid. The biggest feng shui mistake is to have a mirror facing the bed, as this can create challenging energy not only between the couple, but also in one’s health and well-being in general.

Be smart and find a different place in your house for that stunning tall mirror, your bedroom is not the place for it.

2. Place the TV in your bedroom

All the effort you put into creating a good feng shui bedroom will be easily negated if you decide to place a TV there. You cannot have good feng shui energy in your bedroom with a TV in it; whatever energy is emitted by it will take over the bedroom and negate most of your efforts.

It is important to make a choice — either you want a bedroom with nourishing and sensual energy to support your health and well-being (as well as the health of your love relationship), or you just want the comfort of watching the TV from your bed at any cost. Allowing the TV in your bedroom is like intending to live a healthy lifestyle, then stocking your kitchen with junk food.

Think about it and see if that’s a choice aligned with your goals.

3. Decorate with a variety of plants and flowers

It might sound strange to hear that decorating your bedroom with plants and flowers is considered a feng shui mistake. Feng shui is all about vibrant and healthy energy, so it goes without saying that plants and flowers are a great feng shui addition to any space. They raise the vibration of the space, bring beauty, purify the air, and create good energy needed in specific feng shui areas of the house called bagua areas.

However, when it comes to decorating a bedroom, it is best to avoid too many plants and flowers. This is not to say that a plant or two, or a sweet flower bouquet in your bedroom is bad feng shui, not at all!

Big groupings of tall plants, however, or big arrangements of flowers in the bedroom will deplete the quality of energy needed to maintain a nourishing, sensual and cocooning bedroom.

4. Have your office desk and work-related materials

No matter how pretty, well designed or good looking your office space is, know that it doesn’t belong in a good feng shui bedroom. This is not a matter of visual conflict because many office spaces can be designed quite well so as to really complement the bedroom decor. It is a matter of energetic discord because the energies of work and relaxation just do not mix.

Having an office space in your bedroom will eventually result in a subtle — or not so subtle — energy of restlessness in your bedroom, it will drain the sensual energy, as well as lower the specific energy needed for successful work. Not a good combination!

5. Focus your decorating scheme on green color

Feng shui-wise, green color is one of the worst colors to decorate an adult bedroom with. You might have splashes of green here and there, of course, but choosing green color for your walls, a big green rug, window treatments or bed linens in predominantly green color will disturb the energy needed in a nourishing and sensual feng shui bedroom.

Green is the color of the Wood feng shui element, the color of growth, healing, vision, and leadership. Wood is the element that drains the energy from the feng shui element needed the most in a good feng shui bedroom – the Earth element.

Best feng shui bedroom colors are skin colors, also called earthy colors, with a splash of fiery energy (Fire feng shui element that nourishes the Earth element). Be mindful of these details when your goal is to create a sensual, nourishing and healing energy bedroom.
