If spring is for cleaning, maybe fall is for redecorating. The upcoming change in seasons will require homeowners to peruse their attic and closet bins once more, putting away swimwear, beach chairs, and grilling equipment and exchanging them for the bulky coats needed in the upcoming months. This might be a great time to rearrange your space—read below to learn some of our tips on how to get your dream interior.
 
Feng Shui decorating means creating an environment that harnesses positive energy and tranquility. This doesn’t have to mean calming candles and healing crystals—it often starts with a clean space free of clutter. Having a dedicated spot for all of your belongings and being brutal about which items you actually need and what you can toss will make you feel much calmer when you walk through your door.
 
Another popular feng shui tip is to allow as much natural light as possible to shine through, keeping your windows clean and unobstructed, or even buying additional mirrors to optimize light. Layered lighting, or having a variety of tabless, floors, and overhead lamps, will look great as well. Make sure you always replace your lightbulbs when they go out to keep your rooms from looking dingy and uneven.
 
Beyond these simple tips, have fun with your decorating process! Shapes like stars, triangles, squares, and circles all have distinctive meanings in the feng shui world and can be deployed depending on whether you want to feel relaxed, refreshed, or reenergized when you walk into a room. In addition, you can use plants, artwork, and other pieces of décor to express your desired energies.
 
As you undergo your decoration process, it’s great to keep energy preservation in mind. Switching to ENERGY STAR-qualified LED lights can use up to 70 percent less energy and have the added benefit of a brighter light. Use light colors whenever you can, as this help reflect 80 percent of the light that strikes them, and consider thermal insulated curtains.
