Whether you're superstitious or not, everyone wants a little luck in their life—and their house. Instead of carrying around a fake rabbit's foot at all times, these solutions promise to fill your home with happiness, good health, and fortune.

A Red Door


If your front door faces the south, that is. According to feng shui, painting south-facing doors red or orange, north-facing doors blue or black, west-facing doors gray or white, and east-facing doors brown or green, is good luck.

Soft Linens

Okay, so it might not exactly be good luck in the traditional sense, but according to some studies, having soft materials in your home will promote a sense of calm and comfort.

Elephants


These large, gentle animals are viewed as wise, loyal, and steadfast, which is part of the reason they're also symbols for luck. Place a mini figurine in your home to protect your family.

Fresh Flowers

Not only will fresh flowers bring happiness into your home, but people who practice feng shui believe they will bring good fortune as well—as long as you don't pick a variety with thorny stems.

Incense


Sure, the aroma incense gives off is a delight, but some also believe the smoke clears negativing in the home. The next time you have a bad day, burn a warm scent to surround yourself with harmony and luck.

Fruit

You've heard that an apple a day will keep the doctor away—and apparently, a bowl of citrus fruits will attract wealth as well. Keep this produce on your counters to bring a positive energy to your home.

Ladybugs


Everyone gets a bit excited when they see these pretty insects and for a good reason! Some people believe that ladybugs are good luck, so you may want to keep a little statue or painting of one in your house. Or, make your garden welcoming for them.

Circular Layouts

Another feng shui arrangement tip is to put your living room furniture in a circular formation to help the flow of energy in the room.

Horseshoes


Many cultures believe a horseshoe above the door will bring good luck, but some think it should point upwards (so luck doesn't run out), while others think it should point downwards (to make fortune "fall" on those who walk under it).

A Clean Entryway

If you don't want to spend money on your good luck charms, this feng shui practice is for you. Removing clutter from your home's entryway will help you start your day off on the right foot.

Chamomile Tea


Not only is drinking chamomile tea delicious and relaxing, but some people also believe it will bring you prosperity and good luck.

Mirror Placement

In feng shui, mirrors are used to draw in positive energy. When you place one in a location where it reflects a beautiful view from your garden or outside, this is supposed to fill your home with positivity.

Barn Stars


Barn stars serve no real purpose, but some farmer believe, similar to the horseshoe, if one is hanging on your barn, it will bring you good luck.

A Koi Pond

Since this is the greatest sign of wealth, happiness, and good fortune (at least according to feng shui principles), it's a must-have for people looking for luck.

White String Lights


Move over, Christmas. Hanging white string lights in your entryway or on your porch will attract opportunity to your home—and will help your recognize your good fortune when it arrives.
