Here’s How to Feng Shui Your Bedroom for Romance

Quarreling with your spouse? On an unfortunate sexual hiatus? According to the ancient Chinese discipline of feng shui, your bedroom layout could actually be at the root of these romantic ailments. Which is why we made this handy-dandy video (filmed at the gorgeous new creative offices of our friends at The Inside). Follow these basic feng shui principles to optimize your boudoir for great rest, great lovin’ and general coupled bliss.

Step 1: Make space. Having a bed squashed against the wall creates tension.
Step 2: Add a headboard. They’re believed to nurture energy at night.
Step 3: Add two nightstands. This establishes the space as equal and intended for two.
Step 4: Hang art directly across from the bed. This is a feng shui “power area.”
Step 5: Clear the clutter from under your bed. It blocks all the good stuff.

Then turn on some Marvin Gaye, and you're good to go.
