My lucky red Feng Shui closet

After I mentioned our red closet in last week’s post and explained how it has brought me so much luck after following Feng Shui recommendations, I received multiple requests asking to please show the closet.

In case you missed last weeks post, here is a quick recap. I hired a Feng Shui consultant to come and do a walk through of our house shortly after we purchased it (12 years ago). It turned out our “wealth area” on the Feng Shui bagua map was our master closet. At the time of purchase, the walls were never painted, just primed matte white and they were all scuffed up. The closet had cheap wire shelving along one wall and as soon as we moved in, it became an unorganized mess. I wish I had a before photo but I will tell you it was bad. 

Here is our closet today.

Now, just to remind you, the closet is staged for putting the house on the market. It’s usually clean with very little clutter but not this clean nor this uncluttered. My shoes are stored in those hat boxes because they looked too messy on the shelves.

The first change our Feng Shui consultant told us to make to increase the good vibes of our home’s wealth area was to paint the walls red. He then suggested cabinetry to keep it clean and organized. Finally, he advised us to keep symbols of wealth in plain view such as jewelry, a glass jar filled with coins, and vacation photos. We did every single thing he suggested and for the past twelve years I have won more contests and have had better luck than I ever had before. 

So there you have it. Our lucky red closet. 

Several of you also asked where the “wealth area” is located. I am not a Feng Shui expert by any means but from what I understand, the wealth area is the farthest left corner of the house (as you are facing the front door) and that is where our closet is located.

I’m going to miss several things about our current house but I think I will miss my closet the most.

    Even though I know this is staged, I am filled with closet shame. Mine is a mess!

      I don’t think you are alone Darla. I was guilty of the same thing until I found out it was blocking our wealth. I think a closet is one of the most challenging areas to keep clean and organized.

    Beautiful! It looks huge.

      Thanks Linda. It is fairly large which is why we ended up using it as a storage/junk area when we first moved in.

    Love your closet. I took a couple of Feng Shui classes quite a while back now but don’t really apply the teachings in my home. After reading your post however, I am inclined to study the art more intensely:) Unfortunately there is not much I can do about the farthest left corner of my house because it is the toilet…how bad is that! I guess that is not good at all because it most likely means all my money is being flushed away! Time to move?

      Angela, I think there are “cures” you can do for your bathroom. My friend had a similar situation and had a Geng Shui consultant out and I know they remedied the situation.

    Thanks for sharing, Linda. My former home in MA had a huge master closet (coincidentally, also in the wealth area on the Bagua map). Once we paid attention to that room — decluttered, put in some nice shelving from the Container Store, and made it a purposeful room — it became my happy place. That was long before I knew about Feng Shui but I am convinced that our Master Bedroom closet helped sell our house! Can’t wait to hear what Amanda Gates does with your kitchen cabinet screw!!!!

      Thanks Sheila, I hope our lucky closet helps sell our home as well. I don’t know what Amanda has up her sleeve for our cabinet screw but I did see she posted a photo on Facebook with the screw surrounded with an array of crystals! I’ll update with a post once I find out.
