Feng shui is an ancient art and science developed over 3,000 years ago in China. It is a complex body of knowledge that reveals how to balance the energies of any given space to assure health and good fortune for people inhabiting it. "Feng" means wind and "Shui" means water. In Chinese culture, wind and water are associated with good health, thus good Feng Shui came to mean good fortune, while bad Feng Shui means bad luck, or misfortune.
Cindy has been creating spaces that are comfortable, functional and incorporate the principles of Feng Shui. A well designed space ensures energy, harmony and balance. The incorporation of Feng Shui in commercial and residential spaces also fosters good health, harmony between the people using the space and attracts prosperity and success. As each client has a unique style and every space a specific function, Cindy first understands the client’s needs and objectives and then creates the most positive environment possible.
Choosing a front door color
You do not have to paint your door Chinese Red for it to be good Feng Shui, but whatever color you choose will have an impact on the chi of the entire house. Because your front door represents the face you present to the external world, the color of the door will attract certain energies and avert others.
The best bedroom layout
A good bedroom design is always where the bed(s) are placed in the far corner of the room, diagonally opposite to the door. This allows the sleeping person a full view.
Office sitting position
When your desk is placed in an auspicious position, you will enjoy good fortune at work. Otherwise, life at the office can be difficult.
Never sit with a window behind you, as this suggests a lack of support. It is alright if the window is closed. Always have a wall behind you, and even better hang a painting of a mountain behind you. This gives you solid backing.
