The way you decorate your home says a lot about you. But unknowingly, we sometimes bring such images, idols or showpieces that disturbs our happiness and positivity and ultimately we ruin our lives by ourselves.

 Let’s talk about these 15 things that affect our lives. You may not be knowing the negative effects of these things:

home decor, vastuhome, vastu tips, vastu shastra

  1. Broken or unused clocks- as we all know time is symbolic of Growth. It is highly recommended to avoid keeping a wall clock that is not in use or broken.

  2. Old Calendars- similar to Clock a calendar also signifies growth, so avoid keeping an old calendar on the walls of the house. Also please make sure if you are hanging current year calendar then you have kept the current month and date open.

  3. Cactus, Bonsai or thorny plants- Except Rose and medicinal plants, avoid keeping cactus and thorny plants at your home as these are inauspicious. Do not place any bonsai plant as they represent short/ little growth.

  4. Negative Images- Never keep images that depicts negativity must be removed immediately like- sadness, loneliness, war scene, trees without fruits or flowers, nude, hunting scenes, fight scenes using swords, captured elephant, weeping or crying image.

  5. Taj Mahal Picture or idol- Taj Mahal is considered as an epitome of love but it is actually a grave that symbolizes death and inactiveness. So avoid keeping Taj Mahal picture or idol at home.

  6. Broken furniture- If you have broken furniture, pots or vessels that are not in use and unrepairable. Throw them off to remove negative energy.

  7. Mirrors- Mirrors should be kept wisely. Make sure not to place any mirror in front of your bed. Your image should never be reflected when you are sleeping. Put a curtain or cloth if you have a mirror in front of your bedroom. Legends say if you have broken mirrors at home, it brings bad luck for seven years and a broken marriage too.

  8. Avoid things under your bed- Never keep anything under your bed as it causes disruptions and disturbed sleep. Also, make sure you don’t keep any footwear under your bed before sleeping.

  9. Statue or Paintings of Animals- Don’t put any image or showpiece of any wild animals and birds like snakes, owl, vulture, bat, pigs, pigeons, crows, tiger, etc. Vastu recommends not to keep any picture or statue of a single bird or animal in a couple’s room. Keeping wild animals and bird’s image or showpiece brings Violent Attitude in your life.

  10. Pictures of Ramayana and Mahabharata War scenes- Never place such pictures that depicts fight story or scenes from Ramayana or Mahabharata as it strongly brings rivalry among family members.

  11. Black Door- Avoid black door as your Main entrance door. According to Chinese Feng Shui tradition, a black door invites bad luck to your house EXCEPT if the door faces the North.

  12. Avoid placing Empty Rocking Chairs- Avoid placing empty rocking chairs at home as it invites dark forces to come and sit in it.

  13. Brocken Crockery- if you have broken plates, cups or any crockery, remove immediately. Crockery symbolizes wealth and family so when you eat on broken or chipped plates, you are subconsciously inviting failures and troubles in your life.

  14. Sinking Boat or sinking Titanic Image- I also kept Titanic image at home, until I knew its bad effects. A sinking boat depicts a failing or deteriorating relationship so if you one in your home, throw it immediately.

  15. Nataraja- This is an image of cosmic dancer Shiva and it is found mostly in every dancer’s house. As we see it has two different meaning. One that symbolizes tremendous art form and other symbolizes destruction.

Conclusion- It is good to décor home as you love, but at the same time it is very important to know the adverse or bad effects of these decorative before it’s too late!

It is a proven fact that colours have a significant psychological effect on people. A home is a place where a person spends a major part of one’s life. As specific colours stimulate distinctive emotions in the people, it is important to have an appropriate balance of colours in one’s home, to feel fresh and live a healthy life.

Colours for your home, as per direction

Vikash Sethi, CEO and founder of A2ZVastu.com, says that colours have to be decided, based on the direction and the date of birth of the home owner.

“While each direction has a specific colour, at times, it may still not suit the owner. Therefore, home owners should adhere to the general guidelines for colours as per Vastu Shastra, which entails the following key points:

North-east – Light blue. East – White or light blue. South-east – As this direction is associated with fire, orange, pink and silver colours can be used to enhance the energy. North – Green, pista green. North-west – This area is related to air. So, white, light gray and cream are the best colours. West – It is the place of ‘Varun’ (i.e., water). So, the best colours are blue or white. South-west – Peach, mud colour, biscuit colour or light brown. South – Red and yellow.

Home owners must take extra precautions while choosing colours like black, red and pink, as these colours do not suit every person,” explains Sethi.

Colour guidelines, as per your home section

Experts point out that each section of your home, requires colours as per its energy requirement, size and direction. The colour requirement of your home section, should be as per its usage. Astro-numerologist, Gauravv Mittal, says, “People living in a home should keep the following points in mind, while colouring the rooms:

Master bedroom: Ideally, the master bedroom should be in a south-west direction and hence, should be painted with blue colour.

Guest room/ drawing room: North-west is the best place for the guest room/ drawing room and hence, a guest room in this direction should be painted with white colour.

Kids’ room: North-west is the best place for rooms for children who are grown up and go out for study purposes. As the north-west direction is governed by the moon, hence, children’s rooms in this direction should be painted with white colour.

Kitchen: The south-east zone is ideal for kitchens and hence, the walls of the kitchen should be painted with orange or red colour.

Bathroom: North-west is the best place for bathroom and hence, the bathroom should be painted with white colour.

Hall: Ideally, the hall should be in the north-east or north-west direction and hence, should be painted yellow or white.

Home exterior colour: The exterior colour of the house, should be based on its owners. Colours, such as yellowish-white or off-white or light mauve or orange, can suit to people of all Rashis.”

Colours that you should avoid in your home

Experts suggest that light shades are always good. Dark shades like red, brown, gray and black may not suit everyone, as they represent some of the fiery planets likes Rahu, Shani, Mars and Sun. “Red, deep yellow and black should be avoided. Generally, theses colours have high intensity and it may disturb the energy pattern inside your house,” cautions Sethi.
