Ceiling colors and features

Skylights

Skylights are fine in places where they can bring in the heavens chi to enhance the premise. However, if there is a skylight over your bed, energy is being drained away. Draining of energy can interfere in marital happiness. In such a case it is better to move the bed under a solid ceiling.
