What is Feng Shui?

Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art of design and placement.  It is a way of creating harmony between humans and our environment to enhance our well-being.  Feng Shui literally translates to “wind-water”, and aims to maximize the beneficial movement of the chi- the universal life force in all things through an environment.  People are affected either negatively or positively by their surroundings, with some being noticeably luckier, happier, healthier or more peaceful than others.

By changing your surroundings, feng shui allows you to change your life for the better.  In some cases, it can be as simple as moving furniture around, changing the colors of your décor, hanging wind chimes and mirrors, or placing items in particular areas of the home (or office).  Feng Shui is largely common sense and good design.

I have personally practiced Feng Shui in my home and office for over 11 years. Through the years I have extended my knowledge and love of the art to friends, family and clients upon request.  I have recently decided to officially offer feng shui consultations among my lengthy list of design services.  Throughout my blog you will find quick and easy feng shui tips and tricks, try a few and see your life prosper!  For a professional eye call Urbane Design for an in home Feng Shui Consultation!
