01 Enhance the energy flow in your home
You may have heard the famous words ‘Feng Shui’ when it comes to interior design. But what does ‘Feng Shui’ mean and how can we use it to enhance the energy flow in our home?
Feng Shui is a traditional Chinese practice that aims to create harmony in the home between individuals and their surroundings, focusing on energy flow. The historical and well documented method of positive Qi (energy flow) follows the Feng Shui Bagua Map. The Bagua Map is one of the main feng shui tools used to help manage the energy flow in any given space.
So, how do we do this? Mirrors are a great place to start when thinking about improving the energy flow in your home. Not only do they bounce light around a room but mirrors also give the illusion of depth, tricking the eye into thinking that a space is bigger than it is.
Adding small objects to help shift and enhance an interior (including mirrors) is known as the ‘method of minor additions’ in feng shui. Often described as the “aspirin” of feng shui, mirrors are exactly what an interior’s calling out for when it’s looking tired and in need of some TLC. Intrigued by feng shui? Why not explore the Bagua Map, add some mirrors and place them to reflect the best views in your home.
