Make a Splash: How to Decorate with the Water Element

Just as water is essential for all life on earth, so is it essential in the design of our homes and work spaces. It is a mysterious and complex element that can exist in several different chemical states (solid – ice, liquid – water, gas – vapor) and is a powerful way to bring function, freedom and flow to your home.

The Way of Water by Diane Gallin
The Way of the Water

Have you ever floated on a river or lake with only the current to guide you? The water’s depth and awareness of what lies around the bend elude you, but for that moment in time you simply relinquish control and drift. Unaccustomed to weightlessness, you take a leap of faith, close your eyes and give in to the flow. The water decides where you’re going and somehow you trust that it knows the right way. And it does.

Feng Shui Tip of the Month: Feng Shui Water Element Paintings

Feng Shui water element paintings are an easy way to incorporate Feng Shui for wealth and prosperity into your home and office Feng Shui. Water, a beautiful example of the nature's art, represents purification and abundance, bringing forth the energies of calmness and renewal. If you work out of a home office, have many visitors, or experience high levels of stress, Feng Shui water paintings balance many different energies and draw good fortune to you.
"Pin"spiration - Water

Adding a photo to your space such as this can represent the water element so it doesn’t have to be actual water to be effective.  Be mindful the water in the picture and the area you put it.  For instance, you wouldn’t want a Grand Rapids photo over your sofa where you sit often as it could start to make you anxious or fearful.  Click to pin this image.
