What is a holistic space?
It is an interior that is designed by looking beyond the surface to create awareness and an environment that supports and nurtures the people that live in the space.
Holistic designs create spaces that resonate from both inside and the outside from your spirit, your body, your home, the planet and the universe as a whole.
There are many disciplines to creating a holistic space but today I’d like to talk about Feng Shui. Feng Shui is an ancient Asian art of placement developed thousands of years ago. This discipline enhances and improves the flow of energy through the environment to maximize the positive potential for your life.
Through perceiving and shifting the built environment, feng shui teaches us how to live in harmony and nature. Echo friendly design looks at your personal health and also how human actions impact nature and the earth.
Feng shui looks at the same issues: how does the environment affect us on an energetic level and in turn ,how do we influence the universe as a whole?
Feng shui divides the world into five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal and water.
If you have a room that doesn't feel quite right, try balancing the elements to make it more comfortable.
Each element invokes a different mood, creating a customized space that's beneficial for your personality and goals.
