Yin and Yang are the complimentary, yet
opposing principles of Chinese philosophy. They are like
two sides of a coin. Yin is dark, feminine and negative.
Yang is bright, masculine and positive. These two forces
continually interact with one another and this interaction
is thought to maintain the harmony of the universe. When
they blend and achieve balance, there is harmony.
Yin elements include houses, trees, all
inanimate objects and darkness. Yang elements include people,
animals, light and animate things.
Yin and Yang affect your home and the way
you decorate it. Read about some common negative problems
with houses, and the solutions for them.
The use of Yin and Yang here is to illustrate
that your house does not become too dark. On the other hand,
in a big garden, shrubs, rose arches and rockeries can have
a pleasing effect on a flat landscape.
