feng shui furniture: Feng Shui Common Sense - Furniture Arrangement - 01/28/17 07:52 AM
To understand Feng Shui, you need to be open and receptive in how you choose to perceive your surroundings internally and externally. Feng Shui speaks in the language of metaphors and symbolism encouraging change mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. As you become more familiar and comfortable with bridging these two worlds, Feng Shui could become common sense.
 
Starting with a foundational principle in Feng Shui you could begin by observing the layout of your furniture. By arranging furniture in a way that allows easy access through and around each room is said to generate great flowing ch’i (energy). Do your best to avoid ‘squeezing’ … (4 comments)

Multifunctional Furniture for NYC Studio Apartments

Living in Manhattan or really any urban setting can sometimes be a bit tricky when arranging furniture. It requires a touch of vision and creativity. I was out browsing a local store and this piece of furniture caught my attention.
It may not be the most prettiest piece yet it is practical, functional and offers a foundation of an idea to build from. 
When collaborating with clients in NYC, many times they will want to keep a desk in the bedroom. Based on the Feng Shui principles that is not always ideal for we encourage keeping work life separated from sleep … (3 comments)

Feng Shui Insight-How Can I Honor my Ancestors without Photos?

When Feng Shuing your home the principles strongly suggest to honor our ancestors and current family members (ideally the ones you have the strongest connection to).
Now sometimes I will work with clients who feel uncomfortable honoring family through photos for x, y or z reasons.  If that is your case, become creative and open to expressing that positive connection. One could use artwork that symbolically links that positive family heritage, symbols, objects or even furniture.

At first glance this image may seen like it's nothing yet everything has a meaning for its presentation and placement.

How to Create Breathable Energy when working with Vintage Furniture

I have been working with many clients lately that have acquired Vintage furniture from inheritance situations and as gifts.  On one hand, they don't make furniture like this anymore, strong, long lasting and sturdy.

Key concepts to keep in mind to negotiate the Feng Shui principles:
Try to keep the pathway into your entire home and each room clear of any … (8 comments)

feng shui furniture: Could Furniture take on Life Force Energy? - 01/30/14 10:11 AM
Could Furniture take on Life Force Energy?

The Metaphysical world will perceive furniture or other items as having life force while the "common eye" will view them as inanimate objects.  A base Feng Shui principle that many know is doing a house blessing before moving into a new home. Why?
The blessing will help clear out negative energy, also known as predecessor energy left behind from the previous occupants. If an entire house and the land of that home has life force, why not objects or even furniture?
I have even had this conversation about mirrors with clients, which is a whole other topic … (0 comments)

Feng Shui Furniture, what is best used or new? By Feng Shui LI

Old furniture or new furniture, which is better to have in your home when it comes to Feng Shui?  This is a great question and there is no correct or wrong answer.  Before Laura Cerrano Feng Shui LI consultant was featured in Newsday for a makeover article, she needed to find tow new chairs for her dining room because her old ones were falling apart.  So she set out intentions to buy new ones. Well, you never know how your intentions will manifest.  In stead of buying … (2 comments)
