5 Lucky Home Tips for the Year of the Pig

5 Lucky Home Tips for the Year of the Pig

Half of the year is up, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t improve your home anymore and attract some of that luck this year of the pig. Essentially, we ask the question: how can we welcome good luck in our life? After all, here at Pueblo de Oro, we’re all about the happy home life. This is particularly relevant if you are not Chinese born. If you are, chances are you’re already part of many celebrations and would have some of these tips in the bag.

Nevertheless, Feng Shui may just be the answer to that not so fortunate streak you’re having lately. Literally meaning “wind water,” Feng Shui refers to earth’s two flowing elements. As you infuse more energy into your home, you are bound to feel just as energized to perform better and achieve your goals this year.

So without further ado, here are 5 lucky home tips for the year of the pig:

  1. Make Sure Your Colors Are on Fleek

Essentially, selecting the appropriate colors for your home can do wonders in attracting luck, prosperity, and good health. Your color scheme should include warm, earthy shades of red, yellow, orange, and pink. These shades can be highlighted with a hint of white, gray, blue, and brown.

  1. Use the KonMari Method

Have you climbed aboard the Marie Kondo bandwagon yet? If so, you have probably spent your weekends emptying closets and throwing away piles of belongings. Decluttering creates peace and allows positive energy to flow smoothly in your home. Try to get rid of the things that you don’t need anymore.  For clothes especially: hold them for a couple of minutes and see which feeling you have. Do they spark joy, or are they a burden?

  1. Get Natural

Nature plays a huge role in elevating your space and bringing vibrant chi into your home. Additionally, money plants and peace lilies are always recommended. Wooden furniture or décor, pottery, natural fabrics, and stone also complement this year.

You may use natural materials like baskets with plants, and greenery combined with gray tones. Avoiding thorny plants such as cactus, despite how trendy they may be, can also be highly beneficial.

  1. Let the Light In

Light is one of the most important elements in creating balance. Have as much natural light and air in your place of business in order to let the flow of energy move freely. Take advantage of windows by pulling up the blinds, and remove any furniture that blocks the light from outside. Dark spaces and dingy corners are never recommended. If your space is lacking windows, consider investing in recessed light fixtures, floor or table lamps, and candles to create a brighter, happier home.

  1. Be Wary of Your Lucky Numbers

The Year of the Earth Pig is said to bring great success to every business and to hardworking individuals. The number 4 is well known to be unlucky in Chinese culture, but this year might be different. Feng Shui experts advise numbers 4, 6, and 8 can bring prosperity this year. These numbers can be integrated nicely into your décor, whether it’s throw pillows, grouping candles, artworks, and other valuables in fours, sixes, or eights.
