DUBAI: Converting a brick-and-mortar house into a welcoming home is everyone’s dream. Yet, all it requires is some warmth, love, and understanding of Vastu and interiors. Learn more about this science of architecture and its application in home decor during the free to attend seminars at the upcoming CREDAI’s Indian Property Show to be held from Dec.7-9 in Dubai.

Seminars will be hosted by celebrity Vastu consultant Rasesh Shah on Dec.7and Dec.9, while Vastu and Feng Shui expert Dr. Padmaja Yadav will speak to visitors on Dec.8.

The focus will be on a holistic approach from choosing the right kind of home to décor, placements of furniture to electronic equipment to artefacts, to the use of natural light and water, and even garden décor. This will help to retain positive and harmonious surroundings and discourage negative vibes.

“When building a home or an office it is not only the look and the aesthetics that have to be kept in mind but also the energy aspect which is equally important for achieving success, peace and prosperity in life,” said Rasesh Shah.

They suggested to keep the entrance in the north or east direction and as clutter-free as possible. One must be careful when choosing paint; lead-based paints are environmentally hazardous, and can potentially lead to poisoning, if exposed in large amounts.

Place computers and laptops where there is sufficient light. Avoid placing computers in front of the bed. Keep de-cluttering at regular intervals, especially old wires, batteries and chargers. While selecting paintings, opt for visuals that depict natural sceneries, such as landscapes and waterfalls.
