How’s it going? Still settling into your home routine? I’m missing our grandbabies SO MUCH (well, their parents, too :) --I’m hoping you and your families are safe and well.
Here’s Lucille (grandbaby #6) this week--thank goodness for FaceTime!
She just turned 1, such a cutie!!!
I wanted to finish up my monthly Feng Shui “Too Much” series…
If you want some catch-up reading--the first four in the series are here:
Too much Earth
Too much Fire
Too much Wood
Too much Metal
So many people ask me about one of the most basic Feng Shui Tools--the balance of the elements--it’s SUCH an important key in creating a beautiful feeling space--
There are 5 Elements in Feng Shui:
When they are all in balance, it feels wonderful, the vibes are GOOD and you never want to leave the space.
You can instantly feel when the elements are in harmony or when one or more of them have gotten out of balance.
Today let’s focus on the element of Water:
The WATER Element is represented by:
Examples of Too Much Water in a space:
The above rooms may have won design awards, but from a Feng Shui perspective, they are out of balance and if you were to live in these spaces you might feel:
Examples of the Element of Water BALANCED in this client’s family room and bedroom...
This Family Room has a beautiful blue sofa and some touches of blue in the gorgeous art but it is balanced with color, shape and texture of the other pieces in the room.
This Master Bedroom has a beautiful shade of teal blue on the walls and in the mural but it also includes the balance of other elements through the bedding, lamps, additional colors, and wood furniture.
When the Element of WATER is balanced you feel--
So, check your own home, how do the rooms feel? In general, can you identify water elements in your space?
Notice the element of water--does it feel like you have too much, too little, or does it feel juuuuuuuust right?
There are always “corrections” that can be made in a space to balance the elements--when I work with clients to harmonize, balance and upgrade a space, I am always aware of these foundational principles and use very specific design “remedies” in the form of paint color, fabric choices, furniture, space planning, flooring, and art to correct or cure the energy of a space that has gotten out of balance.
And, if you would like to have a conversation about working together, just send us an email and I will be in touch right away--we work virtually, so no reason to wait!
Lots of Love (and Virtual Hugs and Kisses),
