  1. I think Feng shui is very interesting, but to be honest I just decorate with what I like and hope for the best. :)

  2. I got a book on it from the library a few years ago and had a lot of fun trying to incorporate some of the principles. I have to admit that some things I just could not change even though I was supposed to, like a mirror that faced the front door. The mirror is still there! One of my sisters has seriously tried to make her house be more according to the guides and says many of them are common sense things that she likes so much. Basically, some good design principles involved here.

    I like the simple diagrams you've used here as it can be complicated.

  3. My sister has used Feng Shui for many years and it seems to work for her. She has a very zen home , calm clean and relaxing.... thanks for the info.

  4. I am a big believer in Feng Shui, and have incorporated it as much as possible. I think it does make a difference! I even had a feng shui expert come to my home years ago.

  5. Oh boy, I'm in trouble! I've probably broken rules in every room in our house!

  6. I tried this years ago and it drove me nuts. I still think about starting all over and learning it again when I get a chance. I have done a few feng shui things in our rooms, but not alot.

  7. Interesting concept..I probably fit in there somewhere..:)

  8. Is the layout by direction N/S/E/W or from the front of your home?
