Feng Shui at Home

When interior design is combined with the practice of feng shui, the process of transforming or updating a physical space becomes a force for powerful change, health support and renewed vitality in a person’s life.

The design of your home or office affects you deeply. You know that already, just by paying attention to how you feel in different places. By applying the principles of traditional feng shui, it's possible to create living and working environments that are more supportive of our own life force and aspirations.

Using feng shui to address the environment that surrounds us is a powerful way to affect the energy that flows around and through us. Feng shui principles are concerned with making places that support: better health, better energy, better thinking, better relationships, and better connection to everything with which we come into contact. 

You don’t have to believe in feng shui- it’s not a religion or any kind of belief-dependent practice. It’s not even a verb- it just IS. Feng shui is everywhere all the time, whether you acknowledge it or not. Feng shui is simply the relationships that exist in our physical environment, both natural and man-made. These relationships are either harmonious or not, either support us or don’t.


what is feng shui?



Although often portrayed a mainly esoteric system, classical Feng Shui is actually more of a practical science, developed over thousands of years. It was developed through the integrated study of geography, magnetic fields, physics and math, meteorology and astronomy. Feng Shui is grounded in a symbolic language that describes the relatively straightforward principles of natural law. One who practices feng shui focuses on the movement of immeasurable energy (qi) and measurable electromagnetic energy, and studies how those energies affect places and the people who inhabit them. 


Our western culture does not have a specific word for "invisible energy." The closest descriptions we use are words such as: atmosphere, life force, spirit, or mood. However, all ancient cultures, understanding unseen energy flow, have many names for this energy: qi or chi, ki, or prana.




Every living being has this qi, or life force, contained within and surrounding it. Similarly, every structure with walls and a roof has a characteristically unique qi contained within it. Much like the separate-but-interactive layers of atmosphere around the Earth, the qi within a living being interacts with the qi contained in a building.


People are in a relationship with their physical surroundings, at all times. It's the contact between these two unique life forces that results in us being affected by the energy of the spaces in which we spend a lot of time. Using feng shui is an excellent way to address these energetic relationships, making them supportive of our health and happiness.
