The key to a good Feng Shui house is to let the most radiant energies into your building and use them.
Feng Shui design encompasses many levels: the landscape, the garden, the building as well as interior placement, colours and décor.
The challenge is to get as many layers as possible to work together, in order to create the best possible surroundings for ourselves and our activities.
The result of Feng Shui design is harmonious work and living environments. There is a balance between the large and small building blocks - its landscapes, buildings, spaces and energies.
The Macro Level: Landscape design
A landscape affects us. This is true for rural landscapes as well as cityscapes. These have two main influences on us:
Firstly, there is the relative beauty of the physical forms. Soft harmonious shapes are considered supportive, while ragged cliffs or raging waters are considered dangerous.
Really, just common sense! You would not want your home right next to raging wild water that might break its banks, just as you would not be comfortable in a home right next to a busy highway.
Secondly, each building’s energies interrelate with their surroundings. The energy chart of a home tells us where there should be openness and where there should be mountains or enclosed spaces. Accordingly, we select our building so that the landscape is in harmony with its energies.
On a smaller level, a garden also affects the Feng Shui of a building. The location of a pool, for example, can make or break the energy of a home. With Feng Shui garden design, you will discover:
- Ideal pool or pond positions;
- Ideal pathways that bring positive energy into the house; and other
- Landscaping features that enhance your building.
The Building Level
Feng Shui design ensures that the openness of a landscape or street is activating areas of the building conducive to activity and openness; and that the mountains, other buildings or walls of your building are supporting your building’s positive ‘quiet’ energies.
That way a building will be harmonious. If this principle is violated, a building can be odd, ‘back to front’ and, although beautiful, never feel quite right.
Feng Shui architecture determines the optimum orientation of the building in the landscape (if that is a variable), as well its optimum layout, eg. the position of pathways, doorways, rooms, key people, and the various function of a space.
When employing Feng Shui in design you can be certain that your plans will result in the great place you envision, that:
- Vibrant energy will be circulating through the building; and that
- The location and décor of each room will enhance the activities there;
It will help you avoid homes or offices that feel heavy and where life would be difficult. If left to chance, you could be creating a building that is dominated by negative energies, which could disturb your health, relationships or success.
Interior Design - Feng Shui Colours
With Interior Feng Shui design we ensure that only the best energies of your building are activated and that any negative potential is neutralised. You will discover the:
- Ideal location for beds, desks, lounges, and various activities;
- Ideal pathways and partitions; and
- Colour schemes that enhance the great energies of your place.
Have a look at our case study of how important the right Feng Shui interior design can be.
To determine an ideal Feng Shui design, we apply traditional Feng Shui formulas that help us establish the unique map of energetic influences of your proposed building. Based on your requirements and the restrictions of the site, we will work out the best possible solution for you.
Feng Shui design solutions create optimum energy flows, enhance the best influences of your home or office and reduce the effect of potentially negative ones.
