Sometimes, we lovers of home decoration suffer from insomnia. During the long nights awake, a million ideas go through our heads, without knowing that we could hit only one: the decoration of our bedroom. The ancient oriental philosophy, from which the Martinica Collection furniture arises, tells us how to strategically organize our room so that our body possesses internal peace and balance. For this reason, today we have decided to tell you everything, because we want to help you improve your rest.

┬┐What is feng shui?

Feng shui is an Asian philosophy that consists of decorating and organizing rooms in harmony so that everyone who lives in them keeps their energies in balance. For more than a thousand years, it has based its principles on the way of organizing household objects, therefore, the bedroom is not exempt from this divine decoration to promote sleep.

In this case, the lighting that enters our room, the furniture that we choose for it and the organization of one of them, will decisively influence the art of feng shui. Once properly applied, all of this will revert to excellent rest, restful sleep, and clearer thinking when you wake up in the morning. As we like to tell: identity is everything; so make yours in balance.


The sun is a recognized and worshiped symbol in Asia. This is why you must enter our room during daylight hours. Feng shui recommends that the windows in the room be on one side of the bed. Why? Well, because this philosophy is related to the earth and nature, so everything that evokes it in your bedroom will be important for its homeostasis.

Although this is only the room to go to sleep, a warm lighting during the day will favor the warmth of the bedroom at night and therefore, a better rest. Also combine it with objects in light or dark woods and linen or cotton materials that provide a feeling of warmth to the room. This is, without a doubt, the basis of decoration from feng shui.

Bedroom furniture and organization

Cabinets and sideboards: It is recommended that these are not excessively high, but that they fulfill their function of organizing your home. On them you can place aromatic candles, dim lamps, vases or other objects of oriental crafts that are aligned with the decoration of your room.


Bedside tables: These pieces of furniture are usually made of solid and well-polished wood. Therefore, they are ideal to place in the bedroom. Place one on each side of the bed so that the energy balance in the room is not lost.

Mirrors: We love mirrors. However, having our reflection in front of us during the break can influence that we do not fully reach it. It is recommended not to put them in front of the bed or on the sides, but with their backs to it or inside the cabinet doors.


Doors: Doors are essential in our bedroom if we want to keep problems out of it, as a barrier against emotions. Now, these should not be in line with the bed or at least not with your feet or your head. If you have no other choice, block the energies by placing a wooden bench or chest at the back of the bed.
