Step 2.: Water Increase: To introduce the water element, use hues of blue and black and use patterns that depict motion – wave-like patterns. Add a water fountain and photographs of water such as river, lakes, rain falls, rain forests and oceans.
Step 3: The Element Metal is it’s parent element. This is represented by reflection. So using mirrors, shiny reflective objects, chrome, and the color white is helpful.
Step 4: Round shapes also indicate a pool or body of water. You may want to add a round coffee table to the living room or a round stained glass window.
