Yin Colors, Shapes, Lighting, and more

Soft curves and flowing shapes but never a circle are Yin. Rounded ceilings are advantageous to Yin while sturdy wooden furniture needs to be exchanged for soft, plush, or wicker furniture.
Use table lamps, preferably on dimming switches. Overhead lighting with the ability to dim is also categorized as Yin. Lighting should be kept manageable throughout the day. Use full length window coverings for the daylight hours and perhaps a semi transparent covering for the evening.
Furnishings are soft, plush, and cozy. Floral fabric on pillows and sofas are all Yin. Bookshelves, sofas, and other furnishings should be kept low to the ground. Also lowering wall pictures/paintings can increase the flow of Yin.
