Beds placed in front of windows tend to be design and feng shui no-no’s. Except when they are as cleverly done and as thoughtfully balanced as this one is.

There’s a really comprehensive post about fancy dog houses over at dogster.com. Click the link and you’ll see more photos of supermodel Rachel Hunter’s dog houses (shown here) as well as Paris Hilton’s supposedly $325K doggie digs. Having pets is wonderful for your feng shui. Making them live apart from you in an outside house–no matter how nice–is not so great for either of you.

This art piece by Beth Derbyshire may or may not float your boat. She calls it the rootless forest and essentially it’s a reclaimed barge filled with trees that travels up and down a canal.

Is it fun? Is it fun shui?
