How to Decorate a Couple's Room

Video Transcript:

I'm Anjie Cho, and this is how to decorate a couple's room. In Feng Shui, it's important to set up your bedroom in such a way that it supports both partners in a relationship. This keeps a couple's love accommodating and long lasting.

First let's address the bed. Make sure to set up the bed so that there is clear and balanced open space on both sides of the bed. If one person is more crammed in, it may represent an unbalanced dynamic in the relationship. One partner may feel more locked in or controlled. Ideally you want to have equal space on both sides of the bed.

The second thing is to have a nightstand on each side of the bed, one for each partner. The nightstands don't necessarily need to match like here but they need to be similar in size. It's also a good idea to have a lamp for each partner. Again similar in size but not necessarily the same. You can have fun with it like they did and pick different colors.

Finally when you select artwork and other decorative items for the couple's room, be sure to select items in pairs. Pairs symbolize the couple in the relationship. Images of couples and things in pairs will support the union of the two partners. If possible, avoid images of single people.

Decorating a couple's room can be done thoughtfully and with meaning using the principles of Feng Shui. Just remember keep things in balanced pairs to support each partner together.
