Colour has a profound effect on our mood. In clothing, interiors or landscape, colour can influence our emotions, making us from sad to happy, fearful to confident. Some colours have a pertinent effect on individuals. Response to colour may be influenced by a number of factors, such as the body’s affinity towards a specific shade, or a sad or happy memory associated with a hue.
The best shape for the mirrors is square or rectangular. Avoid oval and round shaped mirrors as they scatter the energy of a home. Mirrors should be installed only on the east and north walls of the house. So, due care should be taken while designing the dressing room and bathroom. Make sure there are no mirrors opposite the bed – you release stress during your sleep and a mirror tends to hold the stress and reflect it back, bringing illnesses to the person.
Here’s how you can make a serious style statement with mirrors
Lighting, when aligned according to vastu, can make a design come alive – it can create a warm, inviting and energetic interior, or result in a cold and monotonous space.
Chairs, sofas and other heavy furniture should be placed in the west or south. The south-western area should be reserved for the most heavy articles.
