Traditionally, fireplaces were considered to be the optimal central element into a living room, but in modern homes, this is unlikely to be possible because of space limitations! But it's important to remember that the purpose of your living room is to be inviting to people, to have them to feel comfortable and relaxed, and stimulate good conversation. So, even without a central fireplace, making the fireplace some sort of centerpiece will also work well. Mirrors are a wonderful tool to enhance Feng Shui in a living room. They bring light into darker areas and can reflect aspects of the area that visitors may well not otherwise enjoy. Mirrors make rooms look larger (and lighter) and very usefully, they are able to reflect the door, so any seating that cannot face the entrance can still have the door visible through the use of mirrors. The best placement to get a mirror is where it might reflect a beautiful view, but once again, we will need to adapt this principle to modern cities and homes.
