The bathroom is a sanctuary for most moms. It is a place to retreat to even if just for a few minutes to recharge before resurfacing to face our never ending duties. But it can also be turned into a space that attracts good fortune, by following simple styling tips, for bathroom feng shui, using these easy to find elements.
LUCKY BAMBOO Stalks of bamboo are thought to attract wealth and abundance. Incorporating bamboo into the décor of a bathroom will both create a Zen environment and help you attract wealth. Anyone who enters the room will have a better shot at cultivating luck in anything they do.
GOLD CORNERS Gold is one of the earth’s most precious elements. The color itself attracts goodness into our lives. In each corner of the bathroom, place a gold hued item to attract luck, wealth and harmony. Gold hued towels work just fine.
RAW WOOD Incorporating a piece of raw wood in the form of a nicely stained plank or raw bark reminds us of our connection to the earth. This helps to ground us and establish the right priorities in our life. It can serve as a natural jewelry holder and is also a great conversation starter.
