Lucky numbers in Pig Year are 2, 5, 8. Decorate your interior having these numbers in mind. Place an exact number of photos on the wall, or flowers in the vase. Take care when you put pillows on the sofa or placing some decorative centerpiece.  Avoid numbers 1, 7, 9. Also, pay attention to northeast and north direction in your home, since these are directions of wealth and love. Southeast and east are directions of auspiciousness. Avoid colors like green and blue since they are bad luck this year.

Appreciate nature and life

According to Chinese tradition, Pig is generous and gentle, so make this year more about being kind and attentive to others. It is also an archetype of life lover and all things natural, so dedicate this year to shifting your actions toward more noble and greener goals.

Feng Shui don'ts

All your efforts to please the Pig may be in vain if you happen to allow some basic Feng Shui mistakes. For instance, having a cluttered home will do you no good, regardless of how many yellow and brown colors there are. Also, bed and stove under the window, aggressive corners, leaks, broken appliances, and exposed nails on walls will block the energy flow.
