Bear feng shui in mind when doing up your home

Feng shui should be an important consideration when redecorating your home, an expert on the subject has said.

Jackie Notman, a feng shui consultant, explained various people can look for different atmospheres and feelings within their abodes.

For example, a retired couple may wish to bring out the health aspects of their building’s energy, while a young and ambitious singleton could aim to create a career-based design.

“In terms of general decoration – colour schemes, ornaments and imagery can enhance the auspicious energy of a building,” Ms Notman explained.

Interior designer Danielle Proud last week recommended red as a colour that will work well in living areas.

Ms Notman, however, is more concerned by the “chi” certain design aspects create.

She said those of you who are having structural work carried out must be particularly careful not to disrupt the flow of energy moving from the home, with doors likened to the mouth as they bring nourishment to a room.
