Is your bedroom set up for love? Interior Decorator and Feng Shui Consultant Laura Morris used her design savvy to transform the space of a female client needing help in the love department! As Laura says, "If you build it, they will come!"

According to Laura, the main goal of Feng Shui is to bring positive energy or chi that exists in nature into our home that will nourish and support us. There are 2 quick ways to make sure your bedroom and home is nurturing and balanced.

1. Improve the flow of chi: clear the clutter, dust, clean and move out big bulky pieces - then you can bring in chi enhancers.

2. Balancing the 5 elements. This can be done by using colour, shape and texture in the right spots.

Another great way to enhance an area of your home you feel is a little low energy is to make a FIVE ELEMENTS ARRANGEMENT like this one Laura put in her client's bedroom.

Here's how to make a 5 ELEMENTS ARRANGEMENT for your home:

First, choose a vessel that appeals to you. This could be anything from a glass vase, tabletop mirror or a clay dish.

Then add something from each of the 5 Elements.

1. WOOD

Wood is represented in things like: bamboo, fresh flowers, silk flowers, fruit - lemons and limes work great!

2. WATER

Water items: crystals, mirrored surfaces, glass stones, glass vases and you guessed it, water!
 
3. METAL

4. EARTH

Earth items can be: stones, sand, a clay bowl or a porcelain plate as your vessel

5. FIRE

Laura says, "Make it your own. Use things you like and that you find pleasing - this is going to enhance your energy so have fun and be creative."
