Feng Shui – The Ideal Interior Formation
Feng Shui is not just a concept – it is an ideology; a complete way of life. It can be applied to most parts of any lifestyle, and architecture and interior design are no exceptions. There are three crucial aspects that need to be thoroughly studied when it comes to applying the concept of Feng Shui in any interior settings. These include:
- A careful integration of plant life and water bodies into your design.
- Observing a meticulous and thorough flow of chi – the positive energy – into your interior spaces.
- The Baguya octagon ideology – in which all aspects of a space are divided into eight quadrants, and addition or subtraction in any one can affect your lifestyle.
- The five elements of design:
- Color – knowing the perfect
- Symmetry – observing a perfect spatial composition.
- Proportions – balancing out the all aspect of your interiors.
- Harmony – knowing the cause and effects of visual weights.
- Rhythm – having a constant movement of eye to allow eloquent flow of the chi into your space.
This may seem like an overreaching ideology, but it does work. Feng Shui promotes the idea of a Zen design with free flowing and open spaces that can help your home become well-integrated. Let us take a look at a few good examples of interiors with a good Feng Shui design below.
Of earthy colors and simple ideas
This interior uses all five concepts of the Feng Shui ideology pretty well. The space is as symmetrical as they come, and the furniture layout is definitely consistent. There is a well applied harmony and proportion to the entire setting that allows for a nice visual weight, and the space seems open enough for a nice flow of chi.
Side by Side
This interior may not be perfectly symmetrical in the conventional sense, but the two parts – living area and dining – individually showcase an eloquent symmetry along with a good flow of chi.
Of earthy browns and open floors
Stairs are a good way to open the channels of chi to all available floors of any home, and this is a good example of a nicely designed staircase. Aside from that, the floor plan is sufficiently open and free flowing.
Of large windows
Feng Shui encourages the design of large windows as they are one of the portals through which the chi enters into your home. This room boasts a nicely symmetrical shape, tall ceilings and a beautiful set of wide windows – all the more for the chi to flow in.
Of visual weights and harmony
This room comes with a rich, rustic interior style and a well-rounded theme with a nice visual weight. There are no discrepancies in texture and the tall height allows for maximum circulation of chi.
