“A painting is not a picture of experience but is the experience”- Mark Rothko.
The minute you enter a house, you will know the number of places they have been to. No, I am not talking about the mementoes corner I am talking about art. The painting and artefacts on the wall and drawing room form around the country can tell a lot.
Paintings play a very important role in enhancing the beauty of your houses, but do you know every single object around has its own energy, aura and vibes.
As our places and directions keep on shifting from place to place following Vastu can be a bit tiring. I have a wonderful idea. Today lets discuss the art you own and how can you enhance the positivity around you.
DO’s and DON’Ts of Paintings you hang on you walls. Yeah can do the triumph dance as I am going to save a lot on future purchases.
Tini Tiny basic rules to keep in mind while you choose a painting.
The happiness Quotient:
“The rising Sun” is a symbol of new beginnings, light after dark, and brightness in life. Such paintings bring happiness and create a happy environment in the house and amongst people living there. The east wall is the best in case you can manage.
You can also put scenery that depicts a long road for good planning and a clear vision.
Flower vases paintings can create good memories and connection in the family.
Avoid painful human pictures or portrays with tears invites sadness.
Mahabharata scenes are a complete no-no. Have you ever wondered Mahabharata was a war between family members it’s a tragic story which never seems to end well?
It not only bring sorrow but also family clashes.
