From Mud to Ohm

April 4, 2014

 

We don't have a mudroom.  Most of the winter we scramble in from the cold and pile everything in the dining room.  Hats, coats, homework, newspapers, and everything else gets heaped here.  It is too tempting to see a large, empty, flat surface and not use it for storage all winter long.  I knew it was a problem when I had to slide it all down to the other end at dinner time to make space for plates.  

 

After a while, you stop noticing the piles.  But, by April its hard to miss this mess. And yes, that is Valentines and even Christmas stuff crammed in the centerpiece . 

 

It only took me 20 minutes to go from chaos to calm in this room and when its not used as a storage unit it is actually the sunniest and happiest room in the house. ( I forgot how pretty this bowl is because I haven't seen the bottom of it since October)

 

Springtime screams out for fresh flowers.  I splurge on a vase full of flowers and a new plant during this time of year. Not only do they brighten the mood but, plants filter the air, improve humidity, and elevate energy.

 

Feng Shui Tip: Never keep dead or dried flowers inside your house. Then they lack vital energy, collect dust, and nest bugs.

 

Dead flowers or plants create stagnant energy in your home and weigh you down. Toss them and fill the space with something green.

 

It is recommended to put a plant near computers and television to compensate for the electricity.


Certain plants are especially good at filtering specific chemicals;


Aloe vera , elephant ear and ficus clear the air of formaldehyde


English Ivy- Benzene


Peace Lily- Benzene and trichloroethylene


Spider plant reduces carbon monoxide


And Golden pothos clears away carbon monoxide, benzene and formaldehyde

 

What have you tossed?
