Ways that your home décor could change your life by bringing good luck
We’re all looking for a little luck in our lives, whether we have rituals or routines we follow in order to bring some good fortune into our days, or if we just leave the wishes to birthdays and special moments – most people follow one superstition or another.
If you’re looking for some more luck in your life, then beginning with the place that you spend the most time is the best start.
Every country has their own good luck charms or beliefs, but Terry’s Fabrics have found the countries which have traditions of symbols and practises in home décor, as a way to bring luck into your life through interior design.
Adding Items Into The bedroom
Although beautiful piece, dreamcatchers are also believed to gather good dreams and remove bad dreams. Originating from Native America, the string web resembles a spider, as these are an original symbol of protection.
When a dreamcatcher is hung above a bed, good dreams pass through and slide down the feathers onto the sleeper below. By adding one of these into your home, you could bring some good energy into your life – all whilst you sleep.
You can also bring good fortune into your bedroom or place of study through a Japanese tradition. ‘Maneki-Neko’ are the cute cats named which you may recognise from the entrance of shops and restaurants – can actually bring good fortune if you place this in your home.
Mirrors often make a strong addition to any living space, creating a chic and minimalist design to any room, but did you know they are a bringer of good energy and luck?
Mirrors are believed to bring light and energy into any space, according to feng shui. By placing a mirror opposite a great view, according to Chinese tradition, this will fill your home with positivity and good energy.
If you’re not content with just making your rooms seem larger, and you feel that your doors and windows need some sprucing up, you might consider adding some elephant décor.
In Southeast Asia, elephants are regarded as sacred animals. When placed near doors or windows, elephant decors are said to protect the home from bad luck and if the trunk of the elephant is facing upwards, it will shower those who walk near it with good luck. Who could resist some cute elephant decoration, and being showered with luck every time you enter or exit a room.
Further, how about the good luck of the green? No, we’re not talking about leprechauns.
Houseplants are a huge trend, but did you know that alongside being a great decorative item, these could also bring you an abundance of good energy and luck.
According to feng shui, it’s believed that you should place bamboo in the east or south-east parts of your house, to bring good fortune and health. With feng shui being a staple of Chinese interior design for decades, who are we to argue?
Lastly, the front door
Just by adding a small horseshoe outside your front door, you could protect your home, and yourself. This tradition dates back to 10th century Europe and stems from the fact that they are made of iron, which is believed to be a lucky material – but if you want to maximise the luck you should receive from this décor outside your door, you should hang this up with seven nails, with 7 being a lucky number, this should maximise the affects.
Give these a try, and you can thank us when you luck suddenly changes.
