Hopefully, this won’t make you nod off but I’m excited about the new windows at the cottage which were installed today.

    looks great amy!! and thank goodness you got rid of those curtains! :) what color will the front door finally be?

    Yes, good question, Molly! What direction does your front door face, Amy? Colors equate to the elements in feng shui and your front door is very important. You want to attract positive chi and make sure you’re in harmony with nature ;)

    North = Water/Black/Blues/Purples (Career Area)
    East = Wood/Green (Health and Family area)
    South = Fire/Red (Fame and Reputation)
    WEST = Metal/white/silver/metallic (children & Projects)

    **There are the secondary directions and their elements, but you get the idea.

    Anyway, I really have enjoyed seeing all the changes. And new windows are important! I love that you removed the tree too. It was stealing precious light from your front window. I think the window boxes will make your curbside appeal very quaint indeed ;)

      The door looks towards the north and west. I bought brushed chrome hardware for the door so that takes care of the “West” part and I’ve been thinking about painting the door a duck-egg blue so that takes care of the North. But I’m still not 100% positive on the color yet. I’m going to let it stew in my head :-)

    That sounds perfect for your front door. The NW is also ruled by metal. So the brushed chrome hardware is perfect! And the color is harmony with the NW because metal holds water. So it’s the productive cycle. Can’t wait to see more, Amy! ;)

      I find I now scrutinize door colors on my drive into work. Very boring for some but loads of fun for me!
