Bringing Harmony and Happiness Into Your Home Environment
We all know that there's good and bad interior design, but did you know that interior design can affect your health and happiness?
If you are familiar with Feng Shui, the Chinese art of placement, you probably know that the flow of energy in a room is much like the flow of energy throughout your body. Good flow equates to good things like health, happiness and peace of mind.
Sometimes Feng Shui can be a bit difficult for those of us in the west who have a hard time getting our heads around the mysterious properties of earth elements, air, fire and the like. That's why designers have been teaching a more western-friendly version of Feng Shui.
Originally published in audio format, “Creating Harmonic Interiors” clearly outlined the physical properties of Space, Color and Light and described how they can affect our well-being.
Choosing the Elements
When it comes to choosing colors, it helps to understand how colors affect us both physically and emotionally.
Good interior design follows the principles of vibrational energy. You many think it’s all about great space planning and selecting beautiful furniture and furnishings according to your taste, but there’s more to it than that.
Spatial energy affects the way we act and feel. The size and placement of your furnishings dictate the quality and flow of energy, allowing for greater comfort and functionality.
Even lighting (both natural and manufactured) can affect your health and happiness, so it’s important to know how to use different types of lighting fixtures and how to take advantage of the benefits of natural sunlight.
