Is your bedroom a peaceful haven you retreat to for rest and romance, and emerge from feeling refreshed and renewed? If not, a little feng shui may be just the thing your room needs. Feng shui — which literally translates to “wind and water” — is the ancient Chinese art of placement. The goal is to enhance the flow of chi (life force or spiritual energy), and to create harmonious environments that support health, beckon wealth and invite happiness. In the bedroom, “Feng shui helps you arrange the space to support your best rest and connection with your partner and with yourself,” says Los Angeles feng shui consultant Jayme Barrett, author of “Feng Shui Your Life.” Follow these simple feng shui strategies that will turn your chaotic, uninspiring bedroom into the serene and sensual sanctuary of your dreams.

From a feng shui perspective, clutter symbolizes unfinished business and impedes forward progress in life. So keep furnishings on the spare side and clutter as contained as possible to enable chi to flow freely around the room. Plants placed in corners are said to prevent energy from stagnating there. And don’t use the space under your bed to store boxes of out-of-season clothes — doing so will block energy and lead to stagnation in life, feng shui experts warn. What’s more, “clutter under the bed has its own energy, which can disturb sleep — especially if it’s work-related clutter,” claims Jayme. The feng shui consultant was once hired by an insomniac dentist, whom she discovered stored her patients’ X-rays under her bed. As soon as the X-rays were moved out, sleep returned, Barrett says. Also consider what memories and associations the objects in your bedroom hold for you, and then get rid of anything (even the mattress) that you associate with a negative time in your life, a past health problem, or a former relationship. “That includes the bedside tables you bought with your ex, and even the heirloom furniture that generations of your family have hated,” says Terah Kathryn Collins, author of “The Western Guide to Feng Shui Room by Room” and founder of the Western School of Feng Shui in Solana Beach, Calif.

A common feng shui strategy is to choose art and other objects that depict things you’d like to see manifest in your life, whether success, love or inner peace. In the bedroom, practitioners suggest hanging your favorite piece of art on the wall opposite your bed. “The last thing you see before you go to sleep and the first thing you see when you open your eyes should be something that makes you feel joyful and inspired,” explains Jayme. One type of art you don’t want in the bedroom? Family photos. “You can have pictures of your parents and your kids all over the rest of the house, but the focus in the bedroom should be on yourself and your partner,” Jayme says. If your direct view from the bed is of an adjoining bathroom or a messy closet, screen those views with curtains, folding screens or simply by closing the door. Also, put down the toilet seat at night, lest the bedroom’s energy go right down the drain. Another thing not to place opposite, next to or over the bed (and definitely not on the ceiling, which is a crime against more than just feng shui) is a mirror. In addition to bouncing too much energy around the room to allow for good rest, these reflective surfaces are thought to magnify problems and worries — and some feng shui practitioners even say that mirrors in the bedroom can invite a third party to interfere in your relationship. If you have mirrored closet doors, “Treat them like windows and hang curtains in front of them,” suggests Terah. Move other mirrors out of the room, face them away from the bed or drape them with a pretty piece of fabric when you turn in for the night.

Its cultural and spiritual symbolism aside, “There’s no doubt that color impacts our psychology and our physiology,” says David Daniel Kennedy, a feng shui teacher and consultant in Berkeley, Calif., and author of “Feng Shui for Dummies.” Feng shui practitioners recommend warm, rich earth and skin tones such as terra cotta, copper, coral, cream, peach, tan and cocoa for creating a cozy, welcoming atmosphere in the bedroom. Soft natural colors like light blues, greens and lavenders lend the bedroom a quiet, tranquil vibe and invite healing energy. Bright reds and oranges are typically associated with yang — the masculine half of the yin and yang energy equation — and are too stimulating. That said, “Pink and red are the colors of romance, and using them in the bedroom can increase the romance in our relationships,” David explains. Just limit these passionate hues to accents around the room — in the form of sheets, pillows, throws and other linens. If pink and red aren’t your thing, try variations such as burgundy, pomegranate, eggplant and magenta.
