When decorating your bedroom the key is to dedicate this space to sleep and intimacy, reflecting a relaxing and rejuvenating environment. Essentially, the words to associate with the bedroom of your home are: rest, romance and relaxation.

I used Feng Shui to call in my husband into my life. I made space in my wardrobe, I bought spare hangers for him, had an empty bedside table and also a high shelf in my bedroom empty (wanted a tall husband)

Here are my tips to create a bedroom magnetic to love:

Focus on creating a ‘sanctuary’, frame your thinking about your bedroom in terms of relaxation. Does your bedroom represent rest, romance, and relaxation? If it doesn't, it's time to honour the space where you get your rest, where you sleep, where you have intimate relations with your partner.

Powerful positioning

The better rested you are, the stronger you will be and the more able you are to look after your body and support your family. To make sure you get the best rest, let’s look at the way your bed is set up.

To create harmony and call in love in a bedroom – think about pairs and balance on both sides of the bed having a great bed with comfortable mattress, two nightstands with two lamps of equal size. Ensure everything is matched and harmonious. However, on your nightstand, make sure you only place items that are relevant to you and your relationship status right now.

Keep your nightstand of clutter, including most books. Bear in mind that the bedroom is a place of rest, romance, relaxation, so the bedroom is not the place for a whole library of books. Books carry a great deal of energy, information and charge, which affect your sleep if stored in the bedroom. If you have nowhere else to keep your books, put them inside a cupboard or wardrobe, or ensure the books aren’t on display towards you while you’re in bed.

Switching off

Ensure all work-related items, computers, TV, electronics and exercise equipment are in another room. If you can't live without a TV or your partner doesn't want to get rid of the TV from the bedroom, also cover that while you sleep.

Like work, exercise equipment represents a feeling of doing work, so you don’t want to see this as you’re falling asleep either.

Are you in bed with your phone? Get it out of the bedroom buy a traditional alarm clock and honour your relationship.

Calming colour

When creating a sanctuary colour makes a real difference. Best colours for bed linen are creams, browns and earth tones. Combine these tones with colours you love in the décor of your bedroom with a splash of colour that makes you feel happy, keeping the overall ambience calm.

Bear in mind also that pillows, duvets and sheets should feel luxurious.

Powerful artwork

Imagery is so important in the bedroom and crucial for attracting a loving relationship, be mindful of the pairings you introduce to this space. While you are asleep your subconscious mind is taking in all the images that you have in your bedroom. Think about making your bedroom a physical vision board for the relationship of your dreams making sure the pictures you are hanging up reflect what you want to welcome into your life. What do you want to welcome in?

If you are in a relationship, add in a stunning photo of yourself together with your partner. Choose one that sparks joy, such as a memory of an amazing day together, your wedding day or your first date. The image should make you feel incredible, so that each time you see it, you think, "I love that picture of us."

Hang images facing you in bed and not over your head – this can make you feel unsafe and the image can disturb your dreams.

If you are single and want to attract love, add a picture of a couple doing something that you would love to be doing with a partner. The image should spark joy and inspire you.

Keeping your room, clear, clean and organised with a feeling of a sanctuary will bring you so much more sleep and joy in your life and relationships.

Lohan speaks what she knows. She has countless happy Feng Shui stories of her own. She used the power of this ancient modality to manifest her amazing husband, Ken, to grow and expand her business and move across the globe from Ireland to the tropical island paradise of Bali.

Lohan originally from Galway, says, “what really lights me up is seeing people transform their entire lives when they start using the principles of Feng Shui in their everyday environments. From unexpected cheques arriving in the mail to TV appearances across the US, business doubling in revenues from careers taking off to vision boards coming true, from marriages getting closer to hearts healing, I’ve seen it all!”

Lohan points out how it all begins with your home. It’s where you kick off your shoes and settle in after a long day.

It’s where you give and receive goodnight kisses from the most important people in your life.

It’s the foundation for literally everything, which is why when your home’s energy is out of whack, the rest of your life is too.

You don’t need to be a yoga practicing, green tea drinking, flowery skirt wearing goddess to practice Feng Shui in your home. Here are some of the basic things you can do to create that safe and inviting atmosphere that Feng Shui promises.

Make the entrance to your home entrancing
If your doorway is covered in cobwebs and the paint is peeling off, this is not Feng Shui friendly. You need to make the entrance to your home as inviting as possible with some plants, wind chimes or a welcoming mat. The entrance is considered the mouth of chi where all of your opportunities come in – so make it pretty.

Arrange your furniture in the empowered position
The empowered position is a place where you can see the entrance to the room, but aren’t directly in line with it. Your bed and desk should always be in this position, as well as any sofas where you might spend time reading or watching TV. Apparently this comes from the idea that you will never feel truly comfortable if you can’t see what’s going on in the room.

Get rid of hazardous furniture
If you keep catching your clothes on the corner of your desk, or bumping into the armchair every time you walk around the corner. Your home needs to feel like a safe place to be, and anything that threatens this security does not abide by Feng Shui.

De-clutter
According to Feng Shui, we are energetically connected to everything we own, so if we have too much stuff, it sucks our energy. Get rid of it!

Fix things that need fixing
You need to look after your home, and mould is a big no no.

Let nature in
It’s important to have nature in your home, as we come from a long line of ancestors who lived out in the wild so according to Feng Shui, we will feel more at home if there’s nature around us.

Create the right amount of activity in each room
Your bedroom is for sleeping, so make it relaxing. Your kitchen, however, is more active, so you can jazz it up a bit. Consider what you use the room for most and decorate accordingly.

Consider your colours
If there are certain colours that make you feel empowered, surround yourself with them. Colours are more important than you think!
