Topic of the Day…..How to Feng Shui!

   The idea and theory of Feng Shui, the ancient Chinese art of placement, has been around for over 3,000 years. In the Chinese culture, Feng means wind and Shui means water and are associated with good health. Therefore it is believed that a balance in the energies in a given space can create a positive Feng Shui and overall good heath & fortune.

Creating a beautiful space is not only about choosing the perfect furniture or accessories, but making sure that there is an overall flow of furniture and inspiring colors. These colors need to create a positive chi or energy. David Daniel Kennedy, a Feng Shui teacher and consultant at Berkely, California and author of Feng Shui for Dummies says, “There is no doubt that color impacts our psychology and physiology.”

Now that we know the importance, let’s look at a color chart that explains color schemes and Feng Shui meanings…
