Vastu is about creating uplifting spaces that energize and create peace within. Originating in India 14,000 years ago it is the first intentionally 'green' design science. Vastu honours all creation, the goal being to create environments that appeal to us visually and spiritually in harmony with the environment.People say that necessity is the mother of invention. But in most cases, a necessity is brought about by change, and Mother Nature is one of the best examples of something that is always changing.
From building plans to interior design, Indians use Vastu for divining sacred spaces in temples, businesses, and home to engender peace and prosperity. The true objective behind Vastu design is to create structures or building spaces that help us to optimise health, prosperity, happiness, and to create a home for the soul.
#1 Furniture Placement
- Sofa sets can be against the south and west walls (and if need against east walls), not touching them. The area between the sets relating to the southwest (strength corner) can have waist level landscaping done with heavy indoor plants and small rocks and stones.
#2 Maximise Space - If you're tired of the same old approach to decorating your eat-in space, try replacing a few chairs with a bench. This option is especially ideal for a dining area that's high on style but low on space. A bench can be fully concealed under a dining table to maximise floor space in high traffic areas.
- Since the bedroom is one of the most private places of the house, furnishings and decorations are very important as per the Vastu. As you enter the bedroom, have something positive like a painting, your favourite photograph or any piece of wall hanging to give a positive and welcoming feeling. Also the furniture of the bedroom should be in the same style and pattern. If that is not completely possible then at least maintain a uniformity of colour.#3 Bedroom Furnishings and Decorations
# 4 Use of Natural Materials - tile, stone, true adobe, brick, natural linoleum, bamboo, wood all enhance the health and energy of your space and the people who dwell there.
# 5 A well designed garden using the principles of Vastu , will benefit you and all the members of your family for years to come. By reconnecting with the natural balance inherent in the environment, you will encourage better personal health, improve the quality of relationships and enhance well-being. Northeast is the direction where the energy waves of the water element collect and makes the best placement for indoor and outdoor water features.
#6 Living Colour - The colour of the wall in living rooms should be white, yellow, blue or green. Prefer light colours over dark colors. Avoid black and red colour in the living room.
Royal Enfield Bullet 500 is a classic bike having vintage styling and striking. It is an environmentally friendly bike with lower emissions and increased fuel economy. The bike has hand-painted pin stripes, a 5-speed transmission, 7” double leading shoe front brake and dual seat further distinguish this model. The fact that Royal Enfield produces just few hundred bikes every year adds to its status as a niche two-wheeler. As the makers themselves say, it is a machine to aspire for.
