It’s time to welcome the New Year, once again. Along with the plans to ring it in with enthusiasm and new energy, one usually prays or wishes for the year to bring in good fortune, health, and happiness into the home. While decorating the house to start the year anew, include these simple decorative items and décor ideas, which according to Vastu Shastra will bring in luck and fortune in your home. Whether you believe in Vastu or not, everyone wishes for success, fortune, and happiness in their life. The key is to increase the positive energy in the home. So, get inspired to introduce some of these elements to the home décor to bring the best for the year.
Place a serene-looking statue of Buddha at the entrance, facing the front door. It will guard the house against negative energy and make the environment pious and peaceful. Just ensure that the statue is placed on an elevated platform and is kept clean. Light a lamp or incense stick near the statue daily. It will increase the energy in the area and have a positive impact on the home interiors.
Paint an auspicious sign or install a symbol on the top of the front door. The best option is to fix an authentic horseshoe made of iron above the main entrance. However, finding a genuine horseshoe isn’t always easy, so it’s simpler to paint any auspicious sign above the main door. One thing to avoid is placing a statue or image of Ganesha above the main door. If the idea is to remove obstacles that prevent happiness, wealth and success, then install a Ganesha image or idol on the wall behind the door, so that it is inside the house.
Believe it or not, a piggy bank brings in good luck and fortune to a home. What is usually given as a gift to a child to inculcate the habit of saving is a good luck charm. It brings wealth and prosperity. This New Year, gift your child a piggy bank for inviting good luck and fortune.
The freshness of flowers is said to attract positive energy and prosperity. Fill a vase with fresh flowers and place it on the centre table or any other place where it is most visible. The number seven is believed to represent good fortune. So, you may consider incorporating the lucky number by placing seven stems in the vase.
Palms, Pachira Money Tree, Money Plant, Lucky Bamboo, snake plant, Jade plant, potted Orchids, Tulsi or Basil, Peace Lily, and rubber plant are some of the plants which when kept at home bring good luck and fortune. It’s a perfect season to refresh the home and garden with new plants, so choose these varieties to reap the maximum benefit.
Colours make the house look lively and attract positive energy. Look for reasons to introduce colours into the home décor through art, artefacts, furnishings and accessories. The colours of the rainbow can not only add sparkle to the home décor but also bring fortune and prosperity to the home. Ensure that the items match with the overall décor theme or style in the house.
