Who doesn’t like to beautify their home? While most people have a fondness of assembling antique furniture, a few like to amass fine-looking paintings, photographs or wall hanging. According to Vaastu Shastra, people should be conscious of what they are pulling together around them, especially in case of paintings, photos or wall hangings. When we get all conscious about the right furniture, curtains, even placemats, then why we don’t bother about the stuff we put up on walls?
Vaastu has laid down some rules regarding the ideal positioning of pictures and paintings. Vaastu has laid down some directions and locations where these pictures and paintings can have maximum positive or negative effects.
Some of the tips about the direction and location of paintings and pictures to leverage maximum positive effects are:
Everyone loves to have family pictures and portraits displayed in one’s home. The best place to hang these pictures is the South-West wall, as this placement increases bond and harmony between the relationships. It is advised that you should never place your family pictures in Eastern or Northern corner of the house.
If water is the main element in your painting such as waterfall painting or flowing river painting or Koi fish painting, the best suitable place to hang such pictures is the Northern wall of your house. Water is an ancient symbol of wealth and prosperity. In fengshui waterfall or fountain paintings bring abundant flow of wealth and good fortune.
Similarly, the painting of Seven or Eight horses should be positioned only on the Southern wall as it is a zone of your fame and reputation. Horses’ painting on south wall bring fame, recognition and triumph, mobility and promotion, bring steady and speedy growth in fame and success in career and life.
