Day #113 (Myth 2 of May’s Feng Shui Myth Bust!)
MYTH – ‘Feng Shui consultants help decorate your home’
I have been asked before to recommend ornaments, cushions etc for a home.
Feng Shui consultants aren’t interior designers – unless of course they do both.
There are some Interior Designers who are also schooled in Feng Shui, but ultimately that is not what Feng Shui is about.
Feng Shui consultants work with the energy of a space. Sometimes colours are recommended.
The reason why colours are sometimes recommended for a space is because colour is also an energy or vibration and can change the atmosphere and energy of a room e.g. a certain tone of blue can make you feel cold.
The main reason for colour suggestion with in Feng Shui is to serve a purpose and not purely for aesthetic qualities. e.g. painting a feature wall of orange in a child’s bedroom can help boost their confidence and activate a sense of self empowerment.
Yellow is great for offices and studies as it helps to keep you focused and clear.
There may also be recommendations of how some furniture is placed within a space for a particular purpose, like the humble coffee table in Day #45 and how it can create a space of cohesion and bringing a family together to feel heard and supported.
But the ONLY recommendations regarding what style, design, type of furniture or home wares a Feng Shui consultant will give you is…. What Ever Lights You Up and Makes Your Feel Happy.
You are creating YOUR space.
Your space is a reflection of you and having someone else tell you what you should like is not empowering for you.
You know what you like, you know the style and designs that you love… then go for it!
