Using feng shui to decorate a living room that falls in two different bagua areas is easier than it sounds. Having a living room - or any room in your home, for that matter! - in two feng shui bagua areas is a very common occurrence.
This can happen no matter which bagua map you choose when you are trying to decorate your living room - Classical or Western bagua.
So, let's find the easiest way to apply feng shui in your living room and achieve good results.
First, it is very helpful to understand not only which feng shui elements are needed in specific bagua areas of your living room, but also the subtle way these elements interact.
The Southwest bagua area needs the Earth feng shui element, and the West bagua area needs the Metal feng shui element. The Earth element is good for both bagua areas, as it governs the Southwest area, as well as nourishes the Metal of the West area.
In this situation, you can safely base your living room decor color scheme on earthy tones. You can always bring many more colors, because we need all 5 feng shui elements in any space, just in different proportions.
