Feng Shui Design
Create flow and abundance.
Feng Shui, pronounced “fung shway,” is the ancient Chinese practice of managing, balancing and harmonizing your environment. “Feng” translates from Standard Chinese as “wind.” “Shui” translates as “water.” The phrase “wind water” represents balance and the flow of energy.
Harnessing Feng Shui principles throughout your life and within your home sets the stage to create an intentional life and attract your desires. By implementing Feng Shui principles in your home through decluttering, cleaning and styling you can align your physical surroundings with your life goals and desires.
Feng Shui is simply creating intentional positive flow within your life. It’s about creating a space that reflects success, abundance and joy by harnessing the power of this ancient practice. During our consult we will discuss your specific intentions and goals in life, along the principles of Feng Shui and how to apply them in your home to support your desires. After the meeting we will provide a written Recommendation Report capturing these suggestions with an estimate for Implementation should you like to move forward in having us help transform your home!
Curious to learn more about how this all works? During a Feng Shui Assessment we would analyze your floorplans to overlay the bagua map which showcases where the nine different energy centers are in your space. From there we ensure we balance the spaces through proper floorplans that allow good chi (energy) flow, the five elements (earth, water, fire, metal and earth) as well as optimal positioning of items.
Practical Feng Shui is incorporated into much of what we already do subconsciously in our lives. Here are a few examples:
Decluttering. Decluttering and physically removing items that hold you back, create weight on your shoulders, and clutter your home physically creates a tangible change that sparks a life change. It allows us to let go of the past and move forward.
Bringing nature indoors to lift spirits. Incorporating plants into your design creates harmony and healing as we are human beings, and are connected to nature. Seeing green plants (whether real or artificial) helps ease our mind, feel joy and calms our nerves.
Let the sunshine in! How often do we comment on the size and number of windows in homes? Many times. As humans we enjoy having our indoor spaces lit up with sunlight. Selecting ideal window coverings and furniture layouts that enhance the view of windows is part of design, but also aligns with principles of Feng Shui. Bright light is synonymous with birth, creativity and productivity.
Adding in Feng Shui to design plans is often a subtle touch, but adds an extra layer by creating spaces that work FOR you by supporting your goals, as well as by creating a beautiful space that looks and feels good.
