A reader asked the question: ” So I’m in the midst of redecorating my bedroom, and I was wondering if you had a list of dos and don’ts! Everything is mostly black and white, so I was wondering if you had any ideas on how to add some color into the equation without it looking completely out of place.”
Black and white is a very graphic and “energy-filled” combination, which is hard on your eyes and your restfulness. That said, black is water element & white is metal element in feng shui. Water & metal elements compliment on another energetically. You are right that this is not enough to make a room feel complete.
In my mind, adding neutrals (yes, neutrals, cream, beige, all sorts of deeper yellows) will be more grounding. Make sure to add a splash of fire (red, orange, purple, pink, neon) and a bit of wood (maybe wooden furniture, images of flowers, etc, etc) to maintain a balanced room.
