My winter home in North Carolina is for sale. It’s been triply blessed by a feng shui master (me!) and is listed with Andy Leung of Keller Williams.
Note the curving sidewalk entry which is essential for good feng shui. The lot is a large rectangle with guardian trees front and back. The natural light and space in this house is phenomenal. The facade is deliberately deceptive so as not to advertise your abundant lifestyle. See the listing for more details. If you want a happy home conducive to creativity, abundance, and love, this is it.
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. We once had a turtle living in our canoe. And here in Maine you’ll often see creative people turning all sorts of things into planters (old ski boots, toilets, woodstoves, to name a few). Is it art? Is it fun? Is it fun shui?
Recently discovered a FUN! design blog called moggit (am I the last to know about this site?). This design—just in time for your Halloween party if you order it now!— gives new meaning to the term “eyeballing a chair for my living room”. Check out more about this scary chair and other cool design fun at moggit.
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.
I saw this photo on Old Moss Woman’s facebook page. I don’t know where this ancient ruin is, but it brings out the Guinevere in me. I have a feeling this place is haunted by good spirits, don’t you? And feeling good spirits is feeling good feng shui. Visually, the staircase structure is very beautiful even though it’s a skeleton of its former architectural glory.
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.

Lighting doesn’t have to be boring. Check out this Brodie Neill design for Kundalini. It’s got curves (and we know that’s good for feng shui!). Designer Julie Moringello of Modernmaine design has these sea urchin inspired lamps made from a variety of materials for endless possibilities in customization.

Is it just me or is this post and beam new construction home trying too hard? When I see a photo like this I do see that all the feng shui elements are present: earth (stone fireplace), wood (obvious everywhere, including beams), water(glass used on cabinets), fire (the fireplace), metal (the copper flue and metal banisters as well as white color). So if it’s a good mix, why don’t I feel comfortable in this space? The overall design doesn’t make sense. Look closely and you’ll see that the oversize scale of the fireplace as well as it’s location is more awkward than a teenager on his first date. The contemporary metal wire banisters on the second floor fight the post and beam ruggedness. The wood floors even bug me…I think a wiser choice would have been a wider plank to compliment the posts and perhaps a matte satin finish instead of the highly polished look here. Does this space feel right to you?
