Posted by The Living Naga on

In Home Feng Shui, the usage of black is usually advised to be moderate and paired well with other colours to provide a balance of yin-yang energy.

Black Décor’s impact on Romance

 Black is a popular colour choice for many youngsters as their main décor colour but if it becomes overpowering, it may negatively affect romantic relationships. Intensively black art portraits should not be placed in bedrooms as it causes a person to have more depressing thoughts and reduces a person’s energy levels. The occupant will constantly have pessimistic thoughts when in a relationship and hence will not be able to find a romantic partner so easily.

If black is the main décor colour used in a couple’s room, it may cause the male occupant to be more attracted and attractive to other females. On the other hand, the female occupant will absorb most of the negativity emitted from the excessive blackness in the room and experience a lot of misfortune in her life. This will cause adverse effects in a relationship and the couple will usually not last very long together.
