please suggest good entry way pieces for a feng shui feel

shannelJanuary 11, 2013
my door is a burgundy red color. i like the tile but was wondering should i cover it with a throw rug. I also thought about adding a slim table against the left wall. do i hang mirrors on the left wall or pics? my home goal is to have a feng shui feel

I may be wrong, but I don't think there is a Feng Shui 'feel'. My understanding is that certain items are added to cure the Feng Shui of a particular area depending on which portion of the house the area is in and which direction it faces.

I'd be interested to hear from someone really familiar with the principals.

Hey Shannel -- i love your taste. I went and looked at your photos here, and it looks like you are attracted to the pared down Japanese Zen feel. Which is terrific.

why not hang some rice paper screens on the wall, some that look like these:

A mirror would lighten up the entryway -- do you like this one ?

or

they have the japanese/asian thene you like. :-)

a pair of these on either side would be terrific

on the opposite was, something simple and striking such as this might finish it off

hope this gives you some useful ideas!

trust yourself, and learn to find what you like. your ideabooks are terrific.

I'd add an oriental-style runner.

The entry is not very wide. I would not add table that could stop energy flow.

You don't want to stop the energy flow, but you do want to slow it. Feng Shui calls for curving paths for that reason. The hallway is pretty narrow for a table, but how about a carpet runner with wavy lines?

Here's the URL for the 2nd one, I think it would work better than the first one:

Feng Shui Tips
Well, i'm a feng shui consultant and this photo shows a place where you really need Feng Shui touch.
First of all it is important to know which part of your house is . The entrance? Where is it? North? East? It is easy to check with a compass. The colors are relationed with the orientation.
I really suggest some lights in the wall or in the ceiling, and some pictures on the wall....that reduce the way of the chi...because right now all the energy run away fron this place.

If you check with a compass the door orientation I could send more Feng ShuinTips.

Sorry for the delay, If your entrance is north please keep on mind the carpets or floor with curves in colors blue, black or metal colors. Use little metal bells in each doors and install more light in order to generate more yang energy in this entrance. I can't see how is the stair impact over the main door. This is a very important point!! Please check it out :)
