Rearranging the room during the Spring is a must. Clearing out the old energy, and making way for new things, growth, and new found inspiration is a good way to reconnect yourself to your spaces. The basic principle of Feng Shui is arranging the pieces in living spaces to create balance with the natural world. The goal is to harness energy forces and establish harmony between an individual and their environment. Hanging art in a space is an art in itself. Paintings in particular are energetically charged and dramatically effect the feel of a room. Do you curate your collection according to groupings? By color palette? Do you place masks and relics alongside contemporary artwork or let the work stand alone?

Since bringing art into a space changes it entirely, be sure it is something that speaks to you. Your art collection is a reflection of your taste, your culture, and your inner world. Re-arrange the pieces you have hung, find a new work to add to the rotation. You'll be happy you did.
