As an Interior Designer, I appreciate the harmonious effect of good Feng Shui. To maximise the feeling of balance and positive energy, I try to incorporate it into my work wherever possible. I particularly love working with Alexandra Berthault Bizer, an accredited Feng Shui consultant.
Alexandra and I collaborated on this guide to give you a basic understanding of the Feng Shui principles and to show you how you can use the practice to improve the energy in your home. If you are planning a new build, you can incorporate the concepts before you start any building work. For instance, you can find out if your bed is facing in the right direction or if the doors are in the right place. If you’re working with an existing home, there’s still a lot you can do to alter your internal layout and ensure everything is in the best possible place.
