Feng Shui and Interior Design Tips

Follow our useful Feng Shui and Interior Decorating and Design tips and you'll be on your way to achieving harmony and style.

Feng Shui Tips

  • Keep the front of your home looking gorgeous and inviting, as this represents your ability to attract opportunities.  In Feng Shui terminology this is known as the "Red Bird", the most important aspect of Form School theory.
  • To enhance the Red Bird in business, focus on clear signage, a great entrance and appealing window display to attract customers.  If your business uses a website, keep it user-friendly and engaging.
  • Mirrors should be placed with care, as they can draw in positive or negative energy depending on where they are located.  In general, use mirrors to reflect scenery and beautiful things such as artwork.  It's best to avoid placing mirrors opposite an entrance, as people are more likely to be concerned with their appearance than take notice of the home.
  • Filling your home with tacky 'lucky' objects will not necessarily improve your Feng Shui, and may have the opposite effect.  Properly implemented Feng Shui remedies should blend seamlessly with your décor.  More

Interior Decorating and Design Tips

  • The key goals of good interior design are balance and unity.  Aim for design harmony through repetition of colour, pattern or shape, and follow a consistent theme throughout the interior.
  • Be faithful to what you like and add personality by decorating with things you love.  However, try to avoid a cluttered look - a few decorating pieces looks more pleasing to the eye than a room filled with lots of little knick knacks.
  • Add wow factor to a room by emphasising one or two focal points, such as a dramatic piece of artwork or beautiful flowers or accessories. Too many focal points will look chaotic, and not having a focal point will leave a room looking bland.
  • Colours look more intense when they're used over a large surface area.  If you're having trouble deciding between shades, go for a lighter shade and view a larger sample.  More
