According to Feng Shui, the appropriate directions for wood element are east and south-east. The most suitable Feng Shui wood colors are green and brown. The other colors that can be associated with wood are blue, black, and earthy. Red, purple, magenta, white, and gray should be avoided. One can decorate one's house with the Feng Shui wood element in many different ways.
Feng Shui animals are considered lucky and protective. One can decorate the house with various Feng Shui animal statues or models. It's not possible to decorate the bedroom with plants, thus statues can be used instead. An elephant, dragon, tortoise, blue rhino, etc., are some of the Feng Shui animals.
The wooden Buddha signifies happiness and wealth. Placing it in the house brings positive energy and creates a playful environment. The placement of the statue matters a lot. It should not be kept in the kitchen or the bathroom. The living room (facing the main door), study room, study table, yoga room, etc., are the best places to keep a laughing Buddha statue.
The sailboat, also called the wealth boat, is associated with the energies of wood and water. It is the most well-known wealth symbol after the dragon. As the sailboat is associated with wealth, it should be kept near the main door facing inwards. This signifies that the boat brings wealth into the house. Some people even place coins in the sailboat.
The Feng Shui bamboo is not only a beautiful plant, but it also is said to bring peace and wise energy in the house. One should nurture the plant with love and care.

Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese philosophy which believes in tuning everything with the surroundings. Decorating your house with its elements is said to bring happiness, peace, and prosperity.
