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. The key is to incorporate proper window dressing as well. Check out about a dozen more excellent examples of how to solve this design dilemma with good feng shui at ElementsofStyleBlog.

This lounge and mini sofa designed by Kati Meyer-Bruhl is called “Morning Dew” series. I call it a feng shui do. The elements of style, color, curve are all here. IF it’s also comfortable (and I don’t know if it is) then this would be a fab addition to your feng shui. The design resembles a lotus flower to me which symbolically would work in your Wisdom and Knowledge area of the bagua. Keep in mind that if your mate doesn’t love the design, don’t have it in your home. The idea is to surround yourself with things both of you love.
Keeping your space clutter free and organized is the best thing for your feng shui. This DIY shoe rack from iNewIdea is attractive enough to keep outside of your closet. Get complete directions here.
Every now and then I fixate on one color. Aqua is “it” for me today. I found some cool aqua kitchens online (Big Chill retro appliances in some of these pics are extra special).
This one has a nice mix of feng shui elements: wood floors, metal (white color), water (aqua tones and black table and glass cabinet windows). You could get this effect by simply painting the trim this aqua color or a small accent wall in your otherwise all-white kitchen. That’s not a big commitment but it would give you a big impact.
Inspiring your children from an early age means giving them not only a safe environment to play in but one that stimulates with happy colors and visual beauty. But that doesn’t mean you have to go all cutesy. Here is a slide show of some interesting choices made in children’s room decor. Remember: children are associated with the Creativity & Future Projects area of the bagua. Shouldn’t your child’s room reflect that?
There are some great tips for artists’ websites here at this link. (Thanks to my friend Maureen for passing that on to me). I have written articles for artists, too. Check out this one about feng shui and websites or this one about how to feng shui your business card. Or this one on an art studio organized by feng shui. If you’d like to meet a cool artist that I’ve interviewed, click here. Or to find out more about an author who makes works of art in her kitchen. Art is everywhere…but how does it improve your feng shui in home or office? Here’s how. Another hot tip? Do a search of the Feng Shui By Fishgirl archive for “art” and “artists” and see all the feng shui/ art related stories we have available to you here.
Phillipe Staark’s ghost chairs still look good to me. What do you think? I love the clean lines of this dining/conference room. The eclectic elements are right up my alley, too. They’ve included the feng shui elements: metal, wood, water, and if the dishes are red ceramic they’ve got earth and fire covered, too. Photo from the Miss Design blog. That wine bottle chandelier is fab, too. BTW the beams overhead painted white cut that negative beam energy perfectly—it’s a classic feng shui solution to overbearing beam energy, although in a dining room it’s not as problematical to have beams as it is in a bedroom.
