Themes of paintings in the apartment

Buy paintings with positive energy and themes and avoid paintings depicting scenes of war, violence, disasters, destruction, diseases, terrible monsters, etc.

Do not forget that the apartment is a multifunctional environment and each room needs its own paintings. The living room can be decorated with bright, juicy impressionist paintings or beautiful urban landscapes. And if we are talking about the bedroom, where people usually relax, it is clearly not worth buying there paintings depicting a sailing ship racing on the crest of a wave, a storm, wind, waterfall, hunting scenes, it is better to choose more restrained and calming colors and plot.

For the bedroom, a picture of a couple in love is a good fit. Delicious still life or beautiful flowers will give a picturesque character to the kitchen and create a harmony of abundance and warm relations. Colorful decorative plates and ceramic vases will also be very useful here.

The ideal choice of paintings for the office is landscapes that create a harmonious Feng Shui. For the office in the classic style – paintings with hunting. The image of mountains behind the back of the work chair symbolizes support, stability and reliability. The image of a waterfall, river, stream, or lake in front of the desktop stimulates the element of water, which brings a lot of luck and wealth, but never hang such pictures behind your back. Paintings with an open field bring ease to business and career and are therefore favorable in front of the desktop.

In the children’s room, you can hang a bright picture of a children’s theme or a decorated naive drawing of a child, enlarged and printed on a plotter. Also, in the nursery, Feng Shui experts advise hanging a picture: with a globe – for success in training, with horses (the patron of children) – for rapid mental development, perseverance and endurance. For boys, the picture is good with a sailboat going on all sails (for fast training and constant upward movement). And in the room of a young girl a picture with peonies-a symbol of a successful marriage.

Abstractions with bright, contrasting colors and paintings that depict the action can activate energy in corridors, living rooms, hallways, reception rooms, children’s clubs, and sports clubs. If you bought a landscape with a pronounced time of year, it is placed in the appropriate part of the apartment or house.

Spring is best placed in the East and South-East, summer in the South, Golden autumn in the West and South-West, late autumn in the West and North-West, and winter in the North. Family portraits are priceless items that can attract the energy of unity and well-being. It is not recommended to place them in the following places: opposite the entrance door and the toilet door, opposite the stairs, in the basement. Above the stairs, you can place small paintings of urban landscapes.
