Ring luck in your home in

/ 05:43 AM February 17, 2018

The Lunar New Year or the Spring Festival will officially kick off on February 16—said to be one of the most colorful explosions of light and sound in China and across the world. It is also known to be the longest Chinese holiday that will see its end during the Lantern Festival or the first full moon of the lunar year.

The Dog is the 11th of all zodiac animals. Those born under the zodiac sign of the dog are said to be real friends and reliable partners. Since dogs are known to be gentle creatures and man’s best friend, the jovial nature of dogs is said to be heavy influencers for the year.


Experts say that the time of the dog presents an opportunity to create an environment that reflects who you truly are. And it all begins in your own home. Since 2018 is also known as an Earth year, you can invite luck by turning your place into a cozy and comfortable space.

Here are five ways to allow the positive energy flow into your condominium units:

Start with your front door because in feng shui, this is said to represent the way life comes to us—the opportunities and possibilities that may come our way. So better clean it up to welcome positivity in your home.  You may also want to touch up those scuff marks with a fresh coat of paint.

Make sure that your units are clean and inspiring. Embrace natural light and ventilation through your windows. Take extra care not to clutter your unit with too many furniture or decor. There should be ample space so as not to block the natural flow of energy within the room.

Think of softening the look of your dining room. Choose round- or oval-shaped dining tables to allow chi to flow throughout the room. The dining room is best dressed in earthen tones of gold or terra cotta. If you do not have a spacious dining room, then focus on your diet and nutrition. Always choose healthy and well-cooked food over empty calories. Always keep your kitchen clean and inviting in the Year of the Earth Dog.

Put natural elements instead of artificial decor in your bedroom. Consider placing plants and fresh flowers on your bedside. Splash the room with tones of blue and green as these are easy on the eyes. The bed should be in a position where you can see the door.

As the Year of the Earth Dog is a time to tidy things up, place cabinets and shelves in your bathroom to keep it organized. Paint your bathroom using soft, quiet and calm colors for the peaceful elimination of waste. And always keep the door close.

Above all, it is important to be optimistic and hopeful in the Year of the Earth Dog. This 2018, be mindful of your investments and keep an eye on your money.
