That’s why I wanted to write this post. I often get concerned emails from people who think it’s possible that their love corner is in the wrong place. But guess what: there’s no such thing! Wherever you are is exactly perfect for you right now, and no matter what, there is always something that you can do to improve the flow and get into an even more positive momentum.
[Quick note to those who are wondering what the love corner even is and where it may be in your space: you might want to watch this video. You can also find more detailed info in the DIY Feng Shui Series.]
So, without further ado, here are all the places your love corner may be, and what you can do about them:
Bedroom: Consider warm, deep red for the bedding, and/or pink, peach, white, and cream. Sensual textures, ambient lighting, and romantic images of couples or pairs of things (such as two trees or two animals who appear to be in a loving relationship) are ideal.
Bathroom: Consider painting pink or pale peach, if possible. Then add a romantic image or two, and perhaps two plants, two candles, and/or two rose quartz hearts.
Office: If it doesn’t feel good to switch the office and the bedroom, just make sure to keep only romantic imagery on the walls, and frame a picture of you and your partner (if applicable) for your desk. Warm and romantic colors like red and pink are ideal, as are pairs of things like two plants or two rose quartz hearts.
Kid’s Room: If it doesn’t feel good to you to switch your kid’s room for your own room, make sure to accentuate the other relationship corners throughout the house – i.e. the far right corner of each room when standing at the main door to the room, facing in. You might, for example, place some kind of romantic accent, such as two plants, a romantic statue, or two rose quartz hearts in each corner. (Select according to what feels right in each room.)
Guest Room: If it doesn’t feel right to move your own bedroom into the guest room, or at least to change your guest room into an office or meditation space (many people have guest rooms but rarely have guests), make sure the guest room feels very romantic, with Valentine’s day colors, sensual textures, and romantic imagery. If you have a partner, you might also frame a picture of the two of you and place it in this room in order to symbolically occupy it with your energy.
Living Room: Excellent! Again, romantic imagery. Maybe pictures of you and your partner (if applicable) rather than family pictures. Also, be sure to cover the TV when it’s not in use to discourage excess TV watching and to make sure that your primary relationship is not with the television.
Kitchen: Cozy it up! You might be noticing a theme here: warm and passionate colors and romantic imagery is best. Also, pairs of things: two candles, two towels, a romantic/whimsical salt and pepper shaker duo (you know, like in the shape of a pair of cats).
Dining Area: Create the visual affirmation of romance by having it ready for a romantic dinner for two. Two chairs in this area are far better than three, four, or any other number. (If you use more chairs regularly, however, keep them: I don’t want you to inconvenience yourself for the sake of feng shui – again, that would be defeating the purpose!) Keep flowers on the table, and/or maybe a couple of red candles.
Backyard: How about two trees, red and pink flowers, and/or a love seat or porch swing for two? Two chairs angled toward each other can also be a lovely affirmation of romance, or a romantic statue of some sort.
Deck/Patio: Create a romantic nook for two, and make sure there is the option for ambient lighting. Red and/or pink flowers are great, and how about a fire pit?
Garage: Can you paint it pink or red? If you just wrinkled your nose in horror or shuddered at the thought of all that work, maybe just a romantic poster of some sort for a symbolic affirmation of romance. Also, make sure to keep that clutter cleared!
Laundry Room: Again, I would love for you to paint the laundry room pink or red: hey, why not? It’s pretty casual as far as decor goes, so why not have a little fun? OK, if that doesn’t sound good, how about just some romantic decorations, or even just one super romantic image on a postcard, taped to a cupboard to open your heart to love.
Closet: Feel like painting your closet red or pink? Doesn’t that sound adorable? Not really? OK then, you might place a romantic postcard image in your closet, and be sure to keep it super clutter-free.
Outside of Floor Plan: If the relationship area is completely outside of your home, and you don’t even have any outdoor space that you can designate, accentuate the love and marriage corners of each individual room and area (the far right corner of each room when facing the room from the main door to the room) with something romantic: a statue of a couple, a romantic picture, two plants, or two rose quartz hearts for example.
It’s all about intention, and feeling! As long as you feel good in your space, and you have sufficient visual and/or energetic affirmations of a healthy and nourishing love life, you’ve got your romance energies flowing. Think quality (of the image/feeling/intention) rather than quantity.
