When you’re trying to figure out how to choose fabric prints for your home and with all the choices out there, it can get time consuming. Or at the very least it can be frustrating. I have a simple fix for that if you’re into feng shui.

Why not link your fabric pattern to the feng shui element of your room?

Here’s how to choose fabric prints with feng shui:

  1. Fire element – the shape associated with Fire is a triangle. A Fire element room is in the South. Try using diamond, zig-zag, chevron, or star-shaped patterns.

2. Water element – irregular, curved, or wavy lines represent Water. The Water element is in the North. Prints with wavy lines, water, or even nautical designs will work.

3. Earth element – Squares are for Earth. This is in the Southwest and the Northeast. Choose checks, plaids, or square shaped trellis patterns.

4. Metal element – This one is a dome or arch. The Metal element is in the Northwest and the West. Polka dots are a good choice here.

5. Wood element – Upright shapes like trees are Wood. Try using these prints in a n East or Southeast facing room. You can get literal and use prints with trees and leaves, or more figurative with vertical stripes.
