The art of improving energy (or Qi) within a space, Feng Shui is a detailed and delicate practice with varied rules and design implications.   According to Feng Shui Australia, the positive or negative energies within a space are largely determined by the natural patterns created by the surrounding mountains, water, open spaces, roads and buildings.  As well as this, Qi is determined by the eight invisible points on the flying star pattern, or Feng Shui compass.

  • Place an red coloured mat at the entry of the home.  Round or square shaped mat is preferable.
  • Balance Qi on the terrace or balcony with fruit trees such as lemon or lime.  Style the interior with Feng Shui plants such as the Happy Plant, Money Plant or Jade Plant.
  • Where windows can be seen from the entry, keep blinds draw and the window closed to stop leaking energy.
  • Place a big bowl of fruit on the dining table – fruits should be oranges, mandarins or apples.
  • Bedrooms should be styled with red, green or blue accents, depending on their position on the Feng Shui compass.

  • Place a floor lamp in the East corner of the home.
