When considering a home remodeling project there are many styles one can choose, but across the myriad of styles, the aesthetics of placement plays a vital role. Whether you like mid-century modern, industrial, nautical, or bohemian the placement of things is important to a enjoyable aesthetic flow. Feng shui is a philosophical system that offers guidance on interior design as it relates flow.
Feng Shui for Interior Design
Feng shui is an ancient Chinese directive for the placement of things.
The term feng shui (pronounced fung shway) actually translates to ‘wind and water’. Without delving into the mystic aspect, we can utilize its precepts to design a living area. The aesthetic of mid-century modern differs greatly from bohemian, yet feng shui works across all styles. Some practices of feng shui other than the mere placement of things include color, lighting, texture, and tidiness. The overall goal is to create a space that is inviting, warm, and balanced.
The aesthetics of placement also reaches to the actual structure of the room. For instance, if you want an art deco look unfinished hardwood flooring would not be a good choice. For proper art deco style flow you would maybe choose another flooring choice such as tile. When creating a space the style should be consistent to reinforce the feeling of flow.
Applying feng shui can be easy and fun in any room. Finding your personal style and transitioning that to your home rewards you with a feeling of peace. Here’s a way to feng shui your bedroom.
