Irwin Weiner ASID - We're delighted to have a guest post today on feng shui. Readers of Design2Share know that we've studied feng shui in China, and look at the discipline of this ancient practice as a way you can experiment with decorating your home and improving your life. Sometimes a home "feels good," but you can't quite put your finger on it; other homes may not feel as inviting or energizing. In over 25 years of designing homes all around the world, IWI has subtly used feng shui principles to optimize traffic flow, emphasize the harmony of furnishings as they relate to the architecture of a room, and exude that "feels good" energy that one can't quite pinpoint. Enjoy this DIY approach to looking at feng shui possibilities around your house, and have fun with it. Experiment with your decorating changes!
Home design says a lot about you. The colors you use, what you choose to go on the walls, and even the carpeting that runs throughout each room speaks of the personalities living in your home. The great thing about home design is that it never needs to be the same for any two people. Everyone has their own unique style - a big reason why design is constantly changing and evolving. Many people often struggle with feeling lost as they search for what they want their home to look like or what their overall concept of design should be. Although designing your home can be a large undertaking, there's no understating the enjoyment that comes from decorating.
