U | Unobtrusive
Feng Shui is all about the flow of the atmosphere. The belief is everything gives off energy, whether good or bad. You do not want anything blocking or intruding the flow of energy. Having an unobtrusive design theme allows light and energy to move freely throughout the space, which in essence provides a more open, inviting room.
V | Vignette
A vignette is a fun way to make a focal point in your home. A wall mural or “vignette” is a picture without finite borders. An example would be adding to a design by allowing paint stripes to run from the walls to the ceiling, or incorporating a large picture that stretches across two walls. Using this tactic can help alleviate the illusion of boundaries in a room and make a stunning statement piece.
W | Warm Tones
Applying warm tones to a room can help make it feel cozier but also give off more energy. Reds, oranges, and yellows are examples of warm tones that can be used to transform how a room feels. By incorporating these colors, you can completely change the look and feel of your space.
