Yin and Yang have different qualities and influence our lives differently. Learn how the representations of Yin or Yang in the house can change your life.

The Yin and Yang qualities are present in every house and everywhere around us. It is important is for the two beginnings to be balanced and to supplement each other harmoniously. The right balance of Yin and Yang in the house can help you to either cast away despondency or calm down tumultuous emotions. However, it is important to know how each particular effect can be reached. This is where the knowledge of the Yin and Yang qualities of the surrounding things can help.

Yin and Yang Representations in the House

Some representations of Yin in the house and interior design include dark colors and tones, mild and wavy lines (soft furniture), dimmed light, dampness, low furniture (sofas), soft pillows, silence (bedroom), coolness (windows, fans), and immobility (heavy furniture).

Among the representations of Yang are light colors and bright tones, straight lines and corners, bright light, dryness, high furniture (wardrobes), wooden benches, loud sounds (kitchen, living room), warmth, mobility.

How to Strengthen Yin of a Room

Therefore, you can take the following measures for adding Yin into the room:

  • Reduce the lighting (use switches with gradual reduction of light intensity or change the bulbs to less powerful).
  • Decorate the room’s interior with dark or subdued colors and shades.
  • Eliminate sounds (do not turn on the radio or TV, close the windows and shut the curtains).
  • Use furniture with smoothly curved edges.
  • Use chairs and armchairs with low backs that do not reach the middle of the wall’s height.
  • Choose soft, silk or velvety fabrics in interior design.
  • Get a water fountain for the room that needs more Yin.

Enhancing Yang of the House

For adding Yang:

  • Make the lighting brighter.
  • Add bright colors into interior design.
  • Add motion and sound – get clocks with moving hands, turn on some cheerful music.
  • Use high furniture and seats with high backs.
  • Expose your collections of books, artwork and souvenirs.
  • Use dense striped or checkered fabrics.
  • Reduce humidity with the help of an air conditioner or a heater.
  • Turn off the fan and open the windows to let some fresh air in.
  • Avoid staying home alone.

So, considering that Yin’s nature is calming down, use Yin representations when decorating the house if you wish to slow down the pace of your life, and make it more quite and peaceful. If, on the contrary, you need more activity, attention and changes, use the representations of Yang for decorating and furnishing the home. At the same time, do not forget that, though enhancing a particular aspect may be helpful, an excess of either Yin or Yang may lead to negative consequences. This may happen because one of the two prevails and suppresses the other, thus taking certain qualities out of your life.
