Feng Shui By Fishgirl stopped recently to have lunch in a strange town and found the interior of the restaurant to be even stranger. The walls, columns, overhead of the bar were all covered with dead animals and exotic taxidermied hunting trophies. There were fish, birds, deer, elk, moose, bear, wild boars, and even an alligator and a lion.
What do you think the impact of all this death chi (energy) has on a space? It was obvious: the restaurant had about 20 tables and a bar and there were only 3 tables occupied for the lunch setting. And another entire banquet room that looked like it hadn’t served any real diners in decades.
Although the food was good, and the weirdness of the decor certainly a conversation piece, it isn’t helping business. Maybe it’s because people don’t like to be watched while they eat…or maybe it’s not so fun eating a burger while looking at Bambi’s head on a wall. I think it is more about overkill. This restaurant had waaaaay too many stuffed animals on display.
And if you insist on having trophies like this in your home space, you better be awfully careful about which feng shui sector you place them in. An open-jawed alligator might scare your opportunities for wealth away, for example. And you might not have heard that a dead moose head in your Love & Relationship area is not the latest trend in romance. Trust me on this!
