The easiest way to change the look of the house is by adding colours.

Canvas Paintings are the best way to add colours to your house and enhance your home décor.

Painting is a colourful artform medium to express ideas and emotions.

Shapes, lines, colours, tones, and textures are the basic elements of the painting.

These elements are used in various ways to produce a “frame of mind” of space, movement, volume and light on a flat surface.

Paintings for East wall

Inspirational or motivational paintings like “the horses running” are considered best for the East direction wall.

Paintings that depict nature – happy children or green forests are favourable for the west wall.

Paintings for North wall

Paintings related to water, such as a waterfall or a river can boost your career by bounds and leaps.

Also, paintings showing a journey with a deep path or road is a good choice for the north wall.

Paintings for South Wall

The paintings that show the “Rising Sun” is an excellent option for the South wall.

As per Vastu, the painting showing the “Setting Sun” is not considered good.

Vastu paintings based on the rooms.

Living Room

A running horse is a symbol of loyalty, achievement, victory, power and freedom.

You can hang a large painting depicting the horses running in one direction in your study room and living room.

This painting should have an odd number of horses. And, there shouldn’t be any symbol of light like the sun in the painting as the Vastu energy of the painting may get diminished.

3. Meditation Tool

by Pratishtha Sharma

Meditation is being in a state of relaxation of mind and body.

On a typical day, your mind chatter is constant. It feeds you with worries, thoughts and programmed information.

Looking at “Meditation Paintings” helps you to pause and calm down your thoughts and the mind.

Focussing on a meditative painting will help you change your thinking. You will see all the chaos around you from another viewpoint.

4. Beautifully Painted Jewellery boxes

by Pratishtha Sharma

I like wearing rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces.

But at the end of the long day, I take off all my jewellery and keep them on the dressing table.

The small pieces of jewellery sometimes fall behind my dresser or roll-off somewhere in the dresser.

Because of this, I have lost and even forgotten about most of my jewellery.

by Pratishtha Sharma

To overcome this problem, I have recently started using jewellery boxes.

I found this beautiful and colourful jewellery box with many compartments to segregate my ornaments.

This beautifully painted jewellery box even acts as cute decor for my dressing table.

You can use this beautifully painted box as a jewellery box, or a box for keys or you can use it as a showpiece.

5. Paintings as Gift Items

by Pratishtha Sharma

India is the “land of festivals”.

During festival seasons or celebration functions like birthday parties, marriages, house warming ceremonies, the question arises –

What gift should I buy?

It is very tiresome to find a perfect gift for a friend and/or a relative.

“Paintings” are the best gifts.

“Paintings” are attractive, colourful and easy to maintain and at the same time expresses our wishes in the best possible way.

A beautiful wall painting or a colourfully painted box can be gifted for any occasion.
