How To Use Plants and Flowers in Feng Shui Design


The concepts of the ancient Asian art of Feng Shui may appear complicated but the idea is really simple and filled with common sense practices. Feng Shui is about feeling a sense of balance inside your personal living and working spaces. There is a true science to it; but the average person can concentrate on connecting with how they feel when they are in a certain room in the house; whether or not they feel focused, harried, distracted, or at peace.


Flowers and plants play a very significant role in feng shui design. The art of feng shui places nature at the center of creating peace and balance in one’s life. It is not within everyone’s budget to hire a professional feng shui consultant, but there are ways that the average homeowner can utilize the beauty, fragrance, and presence of plant life to increase their feelings of comfort and well-being.


There are specific plants and flowers that are most beneficial and effective when using feng shui methods to balance the energy in your home. However, if you cannot find these particular plants and flowers in your area or at your nearest florist, any plants or flowers you love and enjoy being around can only generate positive energy inside your home or office space.


Chinese Flowers


Chinese blossom flowers are used most often in Feng Shui designs in the spring. They represent newness, new life, and fresh beginnings. You place Chinese blossoms in your living room, or wherever you spend most of your time in the home; or in the bedroom areas, to represent new love, or the desire for a new baby.


Silver Crown


The Silver Crown is a beautiful plant and considered to be a lucky plant in feng shui. It is placed in areas of the home for overall good fortune, and perfect for home offices to increase one’s sense of abundance and wealth. The Silver Crown is known for having a very distinct silver sheen, which is representative of coins and an increase in cash flow.


Jade Plant


The Jade plant is a succulent cactus, believed in feng shui, to attract prosperity and financial success. Jade plants are used by feng shui experts in work spaces and home offices to increase their clients’ awareness of feelings of success and fulfillment. The Jade plant is normally placed near doorways or entrances, for the best and most effective results.


Bringing elements of nature inside the home or office has proven to be physically and emotionally healthy ; besides intensifying feelings of well-being. Make a special day trip of visiting a floral shop to enjoy the beauty and aromas of various flowers and plants to see which ones most appeal to your senses. If you purchase plants you love, they are sure to bring a wonderful peace to your living and working spaces.
