Feng Shui: What Is It?

Feng shui is a term that is frequently used in interior design nowadays, but what does it truly mean? 

Feng shui is a traditional Chinese practice that has existed for centuries. It is a method that harnesses energy forces to harmonise individuals and the environment.

When you bring positive energy into your space, it is believed to help attract wealth, good fortune, and protective energy, ensuring a prosperous life!

Feng shui can be incorporated into any living space, whether a house, office or kitchen.

Did you know that your environment can significantly affect your mood, how well you perform at work or home, and even how you connect with others?

Feng shui strives to create a balance in energy in your space to help you live a better life through a harmonious environment.

Plants—associated with the wood element—are believed to adjust that balance.


Can Faux Plants Bring Positive Feng Shui Energy?

The answer is yes.

Live plants may undoubtedly help to generate positive energy, or positive chi. Still, the pollen and possible allergies they might bring indoors can also have undesirable effects.

You probably won’t be able to enjoy your room if you’re always sniffling and looking for tissues.

So how can you enhance feng shui and boost positive energy?

Although real plants are usually preferred for feng shui, replica or artificial plants can be an excellent alternative!

While live indoor plants provide beneficial effects, they also require much maintenance. In addition, they are sometimes too time-consuming to handle in our fast-paced society.

Even ‘easy-to-take-care’ plants like the snake plant or a jade plant can be challenging to take care of when you live in the hustle and bustle of Singapore.

And you don’t want to risk that because dying plants can emit negative energy. If your plants have completely browned and you still haven’t removed them, it can also emit dead energy.

This means that fake plants can be considered as the best feng shui plants, since they are easier to take care of.

In any case, the purpose of feng shui and good energy creation is to enjoy your environment, rather than having to spend all of your time attempting to save dead plants.

What Are The Elements of Feng Shui?


Feng shui places much emphasis on colours since they enliven any room.

For example, yellow is a terrific colour that will improve the atmosphere since it can positively impact physical and mental well-being.

It’s also said to bring vital energy to a space that may invite more positive energy to the room.

As feng shui focuses on harmonising natural light in the design, artificial indoor plants should always be placed carefully in areas of natural light.

Furthermore, since artificial indoor plants only require minimum upkeep, you may incorporate feng shui plants into your present décor by placing them on the floor without worrying about unsightly shedded leaves.

The best feng shui plants are plants that have smooth, green leaves that may best replicate the aesthetic appearance of actual plants.

These plants are also visually appealing due to the flowing, uninterrupted aesthetic it brings into a room.

Avoid succulents like cactus since they are thought to deter positive energy with their ‘spiky’ appearance.

Ultimately, all plants used in feng shui should have rounded leaves and vibrant colours that increase happy emotions.
