The requirements for lighting in the Living Room has a significant variation.
On the one hand, you need the room to be bright, and then, there is mood lighting – soft and mellow.
Most houses now are fitted with ceiling lights. The lights have LED bulbs, are recessed and able to be fully dimmed. These light up the whole room brightly.
This can be achieved either with the dimming of the ceiling lights but more favourably with the table lamps. These table lamps can be placed in various strategic locations to light up their various corners.
There are usually two types of lighting.
- A light over the table. This light can be dimmed to suit the occasion.
- Candles can provide intimate lighting. This use depends on the occasion.
Feng Shui and Lighting
The Life Aspirations Formula states that you can use lights in the South Sector to activate:
Fame or Recognition luck (South Sector)
Love and Romance Luck (Southwest)
Education and Scholastic Luck (Northeast)
Element – Yang Wood
Money and Windfall luck
Element – Fire
Fame and Recognition Luck
Element – Yang Earth
Love and Romance Luck
Element – Yin Wood
Health & Family Luck
Element – Yin Metal
Element – Yin Earth Education and Scholastic Luck
Element – Water
Element – Yang Metal
This red lamp is most effective for Fame and Recognition Luck
A suitable location to place a table lamp is in the South Sector where the aspiration is fame. Ideally, it should be a red lamp, but it has other connotations when it can be seen from the outside. The other way is to have a red lampshade.
This lamp has red panels. You can get bolder, you can get red lampshades and a red base. Possibly a red light?
The other two Aspirations:
• Love and Romance Luck (Southwest)
• Education and Scholastic Luck (Northeast)
Lights (Table, Floor or an uplighter) can be used to light up these sectors to enhance these aspirations. There are no colour requirements for these two aspirations.
Lighting changes the mood of the room instantly. Feng Shui provides some guidelines for benefit.
