How is your week going?
We are planning a quick trip to see 4 of our grandbabies this weekend--they’re so BUSY that I can rarely get a picture of them all together, but here is a quick pic of Callum (15 mos.) practicing his selfie skills--can’t wait to see them all!
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:
Examples of Too Much Wood 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:
When Wood 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 wood elements in your space AND how do they make you feel?
Notice the element of wood--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 send me an email and I will be in touch as soon as possible.
Lots of Love,
