Feng Shui: Finding the Balance in Design

Feng Shui is a Chinese philosophical system of harmonizing everyone and their surrounding environment. Our Hanover store put together an introductory workshop focusing on the highlights – the basics of the “art of placement” and small steps to improve chi.

Here are 3 tips to improve the balance, comfort and harmony in your own environment:

  1. Storing things under your bed limits the circulation of energy in your bedroom? Get clutter off the floor and store it away for a better night’s rest.
  1. Mirrors facing your door in an entryway can bounce the positive energy right out of your space. Add an area rug to anchor that energy and replace the mirror with flowers or serene artwork to set a calm and welcoming environment.
  1. Simply add Nature! As international author, Erica Sofrina states: “Nature realigns our energy field and makes us feel whole.”

The team then showed how to turn this out-of-balance room:

Removing sharp edges in furniture, adding cool toned artwork and a little bit of gold has helped turn this room into a calming escape for the times when you need it most.

Our attendees were encouraged to live with what they love. The key is to have your space resemble who you are now and not who you used to be. Your space is a reflection of your mind, so surround your environment with things that intrigue and inspire you!
