You might have heard of Feng Shui when it comes to “at home” decorating. According to ancient Chinese history, Feng Shui originally began as a way to determine areas that were safe to raise a family and to build a good life. Today, Feng Shui is used in a similar way to incorporate its basic fundamentals in building a more harmonized space.
Literally translated, Feng Shui means “wind” (Feng) and “water” (Shui) and these two elements have immense significance in Chinese culture. In ancient times, farms were specifically located in areas that were not affected by harsh winds, but were instead surrounded by streams of pure water. Many farmers thrived on this idea of cultivating acres of land that were sustainable and free from severe weather conditions. Since then, Feng Shui as a concept has been translated by generations who have transformed it into a discipline suited to modern living.
There are numerous popular Feng Shui concepts, but the central idea in each one of them is to create pathways in a home, in such a way, that it allows for natural flow of positive energy or “Qi”. Feng Shui also incorporates placement of decorative items in the home, which are not only aesthetically pleasing but also encourage flow of “Qi” and induce harmony between the inhabitants of that home.
