Want to have the perfect space? Read on to find the guide to how to decorate for Libra energy.
Keep Things Open
Being an air sign, Libras like their spaces to have an ‘airy’ affect. This is achieved with open floor plans, tall ceilings, and white or lighter tones walls to give a space a larger feel. Items or décor on display should be kept to a minimum to help maintain this open and spacious feel.
Add Curves and Arches
In Feng Shui, the energy of Libras relates to the metal element. This qi is contained, poised, and aspirational. To bring this into a space, use curves or arches. Instead of a square mirror, opt for a circular one. Looking for a new bookcase. Try one with an arched top to add some sophistication and charm that a Libra loves.
Focus on the Living Room
Libras are the ultimate hosts. They love socializing and bringing people together. This is why social areas like the living room are big focuses for Libra design. Putting a lot of energy into this space will help a Libra live in their element of community, charming, and conversing. Make sure there are plenty of seating options for all the friends a Libra has. Subtle seating options include floor pillows, ottomans, and benches.
With their symbol being the scales, Libras are all about balance. Opt for furniture in pairs. Go for matching nightstands, two of the same arm chair, and matching décor. Instead of one large art piece, get a grouping of two. A design tip is to find the center or focal point of a room and create balance around that feature. For example, if your focal point in your living room is your fireplace, work around that by balancing arm chairs with side tables on either side.
With the metal element of Libra, add metallic finishes! This is easily achievable through fixtures such as a lighting, plumbing, and hardware. If you are looking to add this to your furniture, try getting metal pieces such as metal bookcase or a chair with metal legs. Any metal finish connect to the Libra energy, however, silver tones such as polished nickel speak to the suave aesthetic of this zodiac.
