"#1 wealth and abundance
our living room. low table and pillows on woven rugs. wealth corner has a tall Indian bookshelf. We've placed books in it that symbolize wealth to us (some about spirituality, some about travel, some about family, education, and music- things we want in abundance). On the bookcase is the first sculpture my (step) father-in-law ever made (very important to dh). There is also a small golden buddha in one of the openings. On either side of the bookcase are pots (one bulbous and clay, one tall and made from teak). Outside of the window, we have planted a water garden and hung prayer flags on the deck."
So, if following the form school, which you are doing, make sure there are some purple highlights, maybe pillows, pots, etc. And maybe a few more gold items.
I totally respect your understanding of wealth being more than just money. And I think that is beautiful. But I would probably still put a few more 'money' things there. Do you live in a community that has a chinatown? If so there are these little gold things that are shaped like hats. They are gold. They represent gold money from olden days in china. I can't imagine you guys putting up a big ass golden "$" symbol. but these little hats are sweet and still send the message to the universe that a little dough is always well received in your house. you can buy them online too. let me know if you need a link. i"ll find one.
the section of our house that houses the piano, a statue
wooden we got in India and a large book of buddhist paintings."
hmm, pardon my boldness...but what do you guys do for a living? If you are musicians than the piano is perfect. If you do something else you might want to put that in this area in addition to the piano and the buddha. I'm totally cool with a big ol' piano and a buddha in fame but you probably have more going on in your life and you need to get it out there a bit. Do you know what I mean? If you were, lets say, teachers, then I would put up somehting there that represents teaching to you. Or if you have won any awards they should be framed and put on that piano.
the dining room. along with the dining table it has a small bookshelf with children's books (symbolizing nurturing our relationship with our child), a loving painting of krishna and rada, and a lamp with three rice paper laterns (representing the three of us)"
I agree with Ivanhoe on this one. I would put the accent on you and your dh. It is relationship and romance. It does not mean your dc is not in the scene, dc has a whole section dedicated to him. And then there is family. But there needs to be a section that is just about the relationship. The two of you. I would concentrate on pairs of things. I personally would move the children's books, but that is me. Is there a piece of art you can put on the shelves that represents your relationship? and also some photos of the two of you you could frame and put up here. Your dc had to start somewhere and that somewhere was just the two of you, keep this little corner alive with the two of you.
"#4 Family bagua
our child's "library" (that's what he calls it). It is painted with trees, clouds, and the sunset. Where we usually have nighttime reads and games. "
This sounds declicious. In addition, I'd put up some family photos. Also, some healthy plants would be a good accent. Some green accents, too.
"#5 Center square Health
The only one I had a question about. It is the hallway, and has mostly red in it, by way of pakistani and turkish rugs we picked up while travelling. It is cluttter free with a few paintings (tangkas and bamboo paintings) on the wall. At the end of the hall (kind of facing the living room) is an altar."
Can you put some yellow highlights in here? Maybe a plant too.
"children and creativity.
the kitchen. Where ds and I sepnd much time cooking together, laughing and playing. We also house all of his art supplies in this room and have an "art wall" with his favorite works. "
this sounds great to me.
"This corner is the area of knowledge and self cultivation.
The master bedroom. It's all shades of white, with a canopy over the bed. On the walls are paintings of tara and buddha. The corner has a statue of saraswati, goddess of music and education, and some candles."
Some blue highlights, pillow, vases, something next to bed would be a nice addition. but the saraswati sounds fantastic.
our entry way. black door, statue of ganesha, and a bench that houses some shoes, but is covered by an animal ikat weaving from indonesia.
There is a nice black and terra cotta colored pot outside the door and a brass name plate with our name in English and Hindi."
this sounds good.
#9Helpful people and travels and angels.
The laundry room and what we call the "Organization room". There is a small painting of an angel in there and pictures of our families and people who helped us in our house while we lived in India. We need to declutter this area."
sounds good, declutter, more photos of traveling would be good too.
All in all it sounds like you have done a beautiful job, I'd just make those adjustments especially in the relationship/marriage/romance corner. But you really seem to be very centered.
Also, for fun, pick up The Western Guide to Feng Shui, room by room, she has even more accents ideas that I think might resonate in you.
but again, sounds great
