The Power of Feng Shui for Your Home – Enhance Your Well-Being Without Breaking the Bank

Stay inside! – In these challenging times, showing solidarity starts with following the one rule of staying inside. This crisis affects us all, as Angela Merkel stated in her speech to the German people, “Every single person counts.”

At TITLE, our focus is mainly on fashion and beauty, but with the current situation, forms of expression are losing importance. Thus, in this article, we want to shed light on what impacts us 24/7 – our homes.

Interior design and architecture are art forms that we may have overlooked before, but now more than ever, having a safe and comfortable home is crucial to start the day right. Instead of encouraging you to purchase new items, we want to introduce you to the harmony of Feng Shui, which can bring a sense of well-being without buying new furniture.

Feng Shui originated in China over 3,000 years ago and has been a part of Chinese cultural history. The term “Feng Shui” is composed of the Chinese words for wind (Feng) and water (Shui), symbolizing the cosmically penetrating energy, Chi. Unlike thermal energy, Chi is not a physical quantity, but it serves as a model for describing human spatial perception. As the saying goes, “Energy flows where attention goes”, meaning that where we direct our focus, energy follows. The concepts of wind and water are used to visualize the flow of perception processes. Feng Shui encompasses different methods to find the right colors, shapes, and materials that will stimulate the flow of Chi when placed in the right places. Feng Shui can be applied to all styles of home decor.

We have collected some tips for furnishing in the sense of Feng Shui, that can help you to improve room climate without much effort:


A central part of this room is the bed. It is not enough to simply put the bed against any wall. Since we travel to the land of dreams in our bed and sleep for a long time, we need security above all. Therefore, you should place your bed so that the headboard is against the wall and you can see doors and windows. According to Feng Shui, it is important that the bed is not placed between the door and window, nor between two opposite windows. In addition, there should be no water or heating pipes in the wall where your bed is placed, as these can affect your sleep.

Living room

According to Feng Shui it is important in the living room that the middle of the room remains free. This allows the chi to flow undisturbed, spread and strengthen the residents. To prevent the room from appearing too empty, round carpets are suitable for the centre, which integrate harmoniously into the overall picture. It is important to use colors that have already been used. Carpets create a cosy atmosphere – regardless of the furnishing style – and enhance the entire living area. A carpet is not only ideal in the middle of the room, but also under the coffee table.


A desk is placed ideal if you neither have the door in your back nor can you look directly out of the window.

small objects and decoration

Smaller tips that are easy to implement: Pictures on the walls must not suffocate a room. A mistake we often make: Hanging pictures at eye level. This way they usually hang too low and push the room down and take the air to breathe. Small pictures belong in a small room. Larger pictures should only fit into really spacious rooms.

Glasses, mirrors and shiny surfaces also stimulate the flow of Chi. Candlesticks, crystal bowls, coloured glasses or wind chimes are suitable for this purpose. Mirrors have a special meaning in Feng Shui. They can reflect beauty, bring vastness into a room and allow a view to the back, which has a calming effect.

You can also use the healing powers of nature by adapting your decoration to the respective season. Flowers, leaves, woods, stones, shells or a bowl of water are suitable in Feng Shui. Healthy plants on the windowsill prevent the Chi from being lost through the window area. Fluttering plants on the floor slow down the Chi and keep it longer in the room.

Of course we are aware that especially in times of crisis people who do not have a safe home suffer especially. Due to the quarantine, they lack important donations for the daily meals. Under the article you will find a link to the Salvation Army, which provides homeless people with warming clothes, food and essential medicines.
