What a fun week--I wanted to give you a sneak peek of Ulla Eyewear...we’ve been working with them for several months and have nearly completed the showroom--up next are their offices!
If you need eyeglasses or sunglasses and are looking for Edgy, Cool, Fun, or Fancy options--check them out at the Hilldale Shopping Center. It’s the store with the HUGE NEW chandelier--WOWZA:
A few of you have asked about the Feng Shui Elements and how they relate to your space…
The A to this Q is COMPLICATED--I think about it this way…
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.
Let’s start by focusing on the element of FIRE:
The Fire Element is represented by:
- The red color spectrum
- Things made of leather, wool, bone
- Lighting and heat: sun, electric, candles, stove, fireplace
- Images of people and animals, especially faces
- Sharp, pointed shapes, small geometrics
Example of Too Much Fire in a space:
- Red geometric print wallpaper on the ceiling
- Red Paint on the walls
- Red geometric print on the upholstery and window treatment
- Art with people’s faces
- Red flowers
- Red lamps
- Red pillows
- Books and a big wooden trunk/coffee table to “feed” the fire
The above Living Room may have won awards for its design, but from a Feng Shui perspective, it’s out of balance and if you were to live in this space you might feel:
- And may be prone to Arguments and Disagreements
When FIRE is in balance in your space (as in this client’s home):
So, check out your home or office, how do the rooms feel, in general, do you have fire elements in your space AND how do they make you feel?
Notice the element of fire--do you have too much, too little, or does it feel just 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, 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, just email us and we will be in touch as soon as possible.
Lots of Love,
