Hanging out with Morgan and Campbell at the State Park lookout--”You can see the whole world!” Campbell said :)
They live far away so it was such a special time to spend it together ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Feng Shui Topic: TOO MUCH WOOD!
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 WOOD:
The WOOD Element is represented by:

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:
When Wood is in balance in your space (as in this client’s home):
From an elemental perspective:
This family room magnetically attracts you--it’s the place where everyone wants to hang out. You can see the WOOD element in the art (trees), the wall color(green), ottoman color (green) and side tables (wood surfaces), --AND there are bits of FIRE in the red and pink colors, fireplace and the “Fox art”--(see below)
--WATER in the color of the sofa
--EARTH in the shape of the sofa, the beige color of the carpet, and the low hanging soffits.
--METAL in the shape of the ottoman, the posts of the side tables and the floor lamps, the light color of the carpet.
Here are shots of the rest of the space--can you feel the balance? How the energy moves in a circular fashion around the room? How does this room make you feel?
A lot of the homes that we work on start out in this “too much wood” category, it’s very common! People like their wood!!!!
Check out your home or office, how does YOUR space feel? Do you have “too much wood” in your space? Now that you know, can you feel it?
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, art, fabric choices, furniture, space planning, flooring, and art to correct or cure the energy of a space that has gotten out of balance.
I will be highlighting the other elements in future posts, so keep an eye out :)
And, if you would like to have a conversation about working together, please contact me and I will be in touch with you :)
Lots of Love,
