Along with air-filtering plants, opt for flowers in pink, red, yellow or orange at home, suggests Chow
Environmental Relationship Enhancers
1. Positive vibes only
‘Opt for homeware objects and decor that spread positive love messages, such as heart-shaped cushions, posters about love and colours that radiate warmth such as pink and yellow,’ shares Chow. ‘Objects that come in a duo are also great for relationships, so try to keep home decor and furniture, such as chairs or cushions, in pairs.’
2. Plants and flowers aplenty
‘Both flowers and plants are ideal for enhancing relationships. Plants create cleaner air, which improves our health and helps one become more positive,’ explains Chow. Some of the most effective air-filtering plants include the spider plant, Chinese evergreen, peace lily and variegated snake plant. When picking blooms, Chow suggests opting for hues of ‘pink, red, yellow and orange’ and staying away from white flowers, symbols of death in Chinese culture.
3. Warm, natural lighting
Light is one of the strongest manifestations of energy, and a fundamental element for creating good feng shui. ‘Natural sunlight enhances our health, and ushers positivity into our lives. If plenty of natural light isn’t a possibility in your space, opt for bulbs that mimic sunlight by radiating a warm yellow glow. Avoid cool, white-toned light bulbs,’ shares Chow.
