Feng Shui Your Home

When it comes to home design, Feng Shui continues to be a hot trend and and a deeply philosophical tradition with ancient roots.  In today’s fast-paced and sometimes chaotic world, where the challenges of COVID, political uncertainties, and the shift to remote work and learning have become overshelming, finding balance and peace in our lives is more important than ever. Feng Sui offers a practical and meaningful way to bring harmony and tranquilty into our homes.

Understanding the Essence of Feng Shui

The term “Feng Shui” is deeply rooted in nature, with “Feng” representing wind and “Shui” symbolizing water in Chinese culture. These elements are associated with good health, and the ancient belief was that harmonizing the flow of energy could positively influence health and fortune. Today, these are values that resonate with many, especially those seeking to embrace a more balanced and mindful lifestyle amidst the chaos of modern living.

Five Simple Ways to Incorporate Feng Shui Into Your Home

While you may or may not subscribe to the belief system itself, there is something to be said for the positive impact of well-organized and harmonious spaces. Here are five easy ways to incorporate Feng Shui principles into your home design:

1. Clear the Clutter

In the words of Marie Kondo: only keep items that “spark joy.” Decluttering your home can open the passages through which energy, light, and air can move through the home. Also, decluttering just feels good!

2. Embrace Good Air and Light

In Feng Shui, the concept of “Chi” is the life force energy that flow through everything. To encourage positive energy, it is essential to have good air circulation and abundant natural light in your home. Regularly opening windows allows fresh air to cleanse the space, while incorporating air-purifying plants like Bamboo Palm, English Ivy and Peace Lily can help create a healthier environment.

3. Harmonize the 5 Basic Feng Shui Elements

The five main elements of Feng Shui — Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water — can be represented through various colors, shapes, and symbolic objects. Consider incorporating these elements strategically in your home decor to promote balance and positive energy.

4. Discover Your Feng Shui Element

Determining your Feng Shui element based on your birth date can offer invaluable insights into designing your living space. Each element interacts differently with others, and understanding your element can guide you in selecting suitable colors, shapes, and arrangements for a harmonious home environment.

5. Mindfully Connect the Design Trinity

In Feng Shui, the design trinity is composed of your bedroom, your bathroom, and your kitchen — crucial spaces where energy flows continuously. Always be mindful of how the energy flows between these three spaces. In the world of energy, nothing is ever still – Chi is constantly moving. This means design aesthetics can change and adapt over time. Embrace balance, find your peaceful place, and enjoy the harmony of your home.
