The main love drawing sectors of your home described in Feng shui are:
The Southwest Sector Love
The Eastern Sector Family and Children
The Southern Sector Fame and Recognition (including popularity)
The South West Sector of Love
Use your compass to locate the southwestern corner of your home. This is the area that is directly responsible for attracting new friends, kindred spirits and true love. In what part of your house does your southwest sector fall? What kind of activities are conducted there?
If your KITCHEN is in your southwest corner then you might be facing some problems. The Southwest sector is ruled by the element of earth and the stove is a pretty fiery element. Fire and earth are not compatible so you might want to consider diminishing the fire element by enhancing your kitchen in other ways.
Arrange objects in pairs! This is a good area to display a collection of salt and pepper shakers especially if they are ceramic. Ceramic objects belong to the earth element. If the curios are shaped like male and female animals such as a rooster and a chicken so much the better.
A red or pink colored teapot in this area will also help draw love into your sphere.
Stone accents such as a quartz mortar and pestle or marble cutting bard enhance the energy of this area.
Potted plants in ceramic or clay pots augment this area. Plants with pink blooms are the best.
Decorate with walls with ceramic as opposed to metal objects. Pink or rose colored ceramic tiles as well as walls painted in rosy tones are suitable for this area.
If you are choosing a pattern for linen or wall paper for this area, then images that are feature birds, butterflies and floral themes are the best.
You also can't go wrong with heart shapes in the kitchen. Hearts, especially twin hearts are a good theme for linen, wallpaper and statuary in the kitchen. Heart shaped molds or cake pans may be hung on the wall to enhance the love attracting properties of this area.
A collection of you finest crystal ware is also appropriate to display in this area as crystals serve to clear bad energy from a space.
If your BEDROOM falls in the southeast sector then you are in a fairly lucky position as this is the main domain for romance and sex. Here on some tips for augmenting a love sector that lands in the bedroom.
Make sure that the headboard of your bed is placed adjacent to either the South or East walls (family) to increase your personal potential to draw love into your life.
This is an ideal place to display a collection of crystals and in particular rose quartz crystals. Rose quartz vibrates at a very high astral frequency and is thought to raise your own vibrations so that you can attract the soul mate that is for your highest good. Rose quartz made of spheres or heart shapes or carved to look like animal pairs are best for this sector.
Try for a pink color scheme with your linens, rugs and wallpaper. Soft, sensuous and shiny fabrics
such as satin, silks and chenille best suit a bedroom that is fortuitously situated in the love area.

If you are single, make sure that your bedroom contains a double bed as opposed to a bed that suits one. This allows you to make room in your life for a new partner.
Make sure you bed is flanked by two bed tables with two lamps on them. Rose colored light bulbs or lampshades are appropriate in this area.
Try to make sure that everything in your bedroom has a pair. For instance, make sure you have two wicker and chairs and not just one. If you bedroom
contains statuary, make sure it is not a single stand alone solo object.
Throw out all gloves or socks that are missing their match. This is bad feng shui for love. Always make sure the shoes in your closet are lined up neatly with their match as clutter with shoes can cause disruptions in your relationships.
Photos, statues or images of ducks, hummingbirds, dancing butterflies or flower blooms also send a message to the universe that you are willing to receive new love into your life.
A photograph or picture of two cranes, two dolphins or two elephants ensures fidelity in a marriage.
Two red or pink lava lamps can help enhance your prospects in this area.
If your closet is located in the very, very southwestern corner of your bedroom, it is very bad news. Either relocate the closet or try to minimize the negative chi it generates by hanging hollow tubular windchimes on the door.
The Chinese double happiness symbol can be purchased at Chinese retail outlets. Often these are sold as flat red cardboard cut outs that can be inserted between the mattress and the boxspring to attract love to you. The image can also be hung on a wall and it often adorns many chimes, mobiles and other Chinese knick-knacks.
Hang a painting or photograph of peonies as this luscious flower represents rich and loving relationships in Chinese folklore.
Pink and red candles are also very suited to put in this area as they symbolize the melting of one's heart for another.
Sentimental objects such as round snow shakers and glass globes filled with water and sparkles can also enhance love in the bedroom.
Avoid having your bedroom bureau mirror facing a marital bed. The same goes for tiled ceilings. Mirrored closet doors are also a bad idea. The theory is that mirrors reflecting anywhere there is sexual activity increase the chance of infidelity in a relationship.
If your BATHROOM falls in your southwest sector then you might have a problem on your hands, especially if your toilet is located in that sector. Here are a few suggestions to help remedy that situation.
The color scheme of your bathroom should be as pink and white as possible with gold accents
The more faucets, sprayers, water jets and other things that emit water in the bathroom the better as these objects represent healthy chi. Strategically place mirrors so that these faucets are reflected but make sure you do not have a mirror in your bathroom that is reflecting the toilet.
Augment this area with a heart shaped bath mat. Floral or heart shaped motifs are best in this area.
Avoid leaving the toilet lid open as it is a place where luck in love considered to be flushed away. The same principle applies to drains, which should remain plugged at all times to prevent a similar loss of wealth.
Tie red ribbons on the pipes under the sink or toilet to discourage negative chi in the bathroom.
Place a pair of rubber ducks on the edge of your bathtub to insure fidelity in a marriage or to draw a partner to yourself.
If your LIVING ROOM falls in your southeast sector than you could also have a problem. Many living rooms contain objects that represent hearths such as televisions, gas stoves and real fireplaces. In order to counteract problems that could be caused by having a living room in your southeast sector try the following:
Use a red, rose and gold color scheme. This applies to lighting as well. Try using lampshades in those colors or lightbulbs.
Keep fresh cut flowers as a centerpiece on a coffee table in this area.
Avoid abstract art and instead try to hang paintings that feature images of strolling couples and romance.
The love sector represents earth, so you want to avoid heavy, tall, column shaped or tree trunk shapes in this area. The best furniture is made of materials such as wicker and flat stones. Avoid glass tops and glass objects. Stone furnishing should be as short and squat as possible. Columns or pillars are considered to be blocks to good chi in this area so don't use them as plant stands.
Soft pink lights, lace, ribbons and other feminine elements also enhance this area.
A bubbling fountain constructed from stone and filled with river pebbles keeps the love chi alive in this area. A fountain made of solid rose quartz stone would be ideal
It is not that auspicious for your HOME OFFICE to be located in the southwest corner of your home. This is because business and love do not often make good bed mates. Here are some ways to counteract this.
It is extremely auspicious for your HOME OFFICE to be located in the southeast corner of your home. Ways to augment this fortunate placement of an office even more are:
Your desk should be made of a light colored wood. Woods made from fruit trees such as cherry suit this area as well. Avoid desks made of metal or glass or heavy black furniture. Heavy or dark objects create a labored or ponderous energy that is not conducive to love energy.
Try to choose furniture with rounded corners and avoid sharp angles in all aspects of your design in this area. Angles and sharp points can cause disruption in all of your relationships when it comes to business, social life and love.
A small stone fountain, perhaps featuring Quan Yin, the Chinese Goddess of Compassion can also enhance the energy in this area.
Fill your office with small potted and hanging plants. This will help create chi that is friendliest to an office placed in the love corner.
Crystals such as pink topaz and rose quartz can help cure disrupted chi in this room.
Choose a pink or red phone over a black or blue model.
