To activate postive feng shui energy, don’t be afraid to mix color, bold patterns, and art in one room the way designer Carol Freedman of Bethesda, Maryland has done in this delightful bedroom. Color is the unifying theme that makes an eclectic play of seemingly incongruent patterns work. The medallions in the subtle bedcover echo the not-so-subtle rug medallions. The pillows by Betty Ferguson of Windows By Betty and painting by Susan Finsen add even more layers tied together by accent colors. I can’t see the full room but it seems to me that the bed has matching nightstands with the same lamps that keep the feng shui equilibrium intact.

Here’s some eye candy from the New York Times. This young “street artist” in Offenberg, Germany has truly personalized his space (see more photos) and Feng Shui By Fishgirl could definitely live there. I would tweak the bedroom a little bit to meet feng shui requirements: I wouldn’t push the bed of a grownup into the corner, best to have chi circulating all around, and I’d also like it better if it had some sort of headboard, a platform for the bed, and in general a more finished look to the room (side tables, lamp off the floor, etc for balance). It’s a little too “dorm room” as is and the overall effect of this home is very sophisticated.
But what I LOVE about this home is the use of art and color and the spare uncluttered feel that is NOT stark.
The pink bathroom is also wonderful. If your bathroom is in the Love & Marriage area you may want to consider this look.
