According to Feng Shui the main door is the most important part of the whole house. Positive energy and prosperity comes from the main door and it is very important to keep it clutter free and allow the flow of energy to the house. Paintings play a very important role in Feng Shui as they require less space and can express the statement of style of the owner.
Everyone likes to be greeted by fresh flowers plants and good art pieces as they enter. But it is not always possible to have physical vases and statues at the entrance due to space constraints. Many people display mandated artworks and personalized name plates to make a style statement. Painting s using different media and collage work are gaining much importance as they can be personalized according to individual tastes and the environment. Greeting 'chi' or positive energy to our home is very important with bright and good pictures of flowers or plants.
Symbolic paintings of religious symbols and good luck are very effective as also symbols for protection from negative energies. As the trends are changing people who have a modern outlook do not like to display religious symbols as they are, and here symbolic paintings play a very important role to suit the purpose of protection without being obvious. The color black used helps to ward off evil eye and color red gives protection from negative energies and charge up with positive energy.
Abstract works having religious symbols can be made as commissioned pieces from spiritual artists. The nameplate of an individual is very important and paintings can be made using different media to give a welcoming look as well as a style statement. The main door can be decorated using welcoming paintings of bright flowers, fresh landscapes, bright still life and colorful abstracts. Consideration should be given to the environment near the door and the color scheme of the living room before selection of paintings.
