5 WAYS TO IMPROVE JOHN MAYER’S FENG SHUI

There’s a great slide show of John Mayer’s pad at Elle Decor. I’ve taken the liberty of reviewing the musician’s lair with Feng Shui By Fishgirl eyes. Here are 5 things that could be done to improve the feng shui of the space that was decorated using Armani Casa furnishings.

1] ADD SOME YIN SHAPES to offset the male yang square shapes throughout the apartment. One easy place to do this would be the dining room. The table itself could be round, or, less expensive to change out would be to change the lampshade shape to a big globe instead of the square.

2] TOO MUCH WOOD. Reface the cabinets. There’s too much wood ch’i and it was a mistake to match the wood floors to the cabinets. A hipper look that would have enhanced the feng shui would have been to add a color cabinet (red, blue, green…depending on the location of the kitchen).

3] BIGGER ART. While it was a good thing the designers added color to the wall above the couch, the piece used is too small. Much better if there were two or three panels of this sized piece across the entire wall (or replace it with one large painting). They’ve done the same thing over the guest bed and have left way too much wall space undone.

4] REPLACE DEAD PLANTS. While we approve of the Jimi Hendrix portraits, dead leaves on plants like the one here represent dead ch’i energy. Replace all dead plants with thriving ones or cut flowers for good feng shui.

5] DIVERSIFY. Using just one source for your entire home (in this case, Armani Casa) leads to a pretty homogenous environment akin to a furniture showroom and not a home. It’s boring, John! Adding pieces carefully selected to represent your own personal taste, maybe from your world wide concert tour cities, would transform this space. You can still do it by reupholstering some of the pieces (the barstools and maybe one chair in the living room) with interesting fabric.

So what do YOU think? Will John Mayer take the advice of Feng Shui By Fishgirl?

    I totally agree with you on all counts…. I love Armani Casa and his textures and modern style but this apartment is BORING. I can’t picture him romancing Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston or Taylor Swift.. or looking at porn for that matter (his obsession) LOL….

    I know he got a huge print with a day in the life of Frank Sinatra over his couch, now. It looks cool from a distance. It looks like it starts with Frank getting up in the morning and goes through his day with him. It looks like their could be 100 small shots in the hole thing, but together, it’s huge.
