The origin of Feng Shui lies in Daoism, where this Far Eastern teaching is presented as a science and art for a harmonious life with the environment. Living by Feng Shui helps man to arrange and reconcile the relationship between him and his material environment. In Southeast Asia, the Feng Shui teaching is part of everyday life.
Translated, Feng Shui is called "wind and water" and refers to the harmonious interaction of all energies acting on us. Above all, the balance between the two forces "Yin" and "Yang" is considered by the Chinese harmony theory to be particularly important.
Pay attention to the kitchen, because it is the heart of every apartment
Yin and Yang appear in pairs and work together for harmony and balance. Although Yin and Yang are always opposites, they still complement each other in our dualistic world. Just as female and male, light and dark, warm and cold or soft and hard are essential to each other and complement each other. So yin can not exist without yang and vice versa.

The ideas of Feng Shui can be thoroughly transferred to the Western way of life, so that one can feel comfortable in his environment. When the home radiates security and warmth with its furnishings, it becomes a place of relaxation. So you can refuel in this place daily new energy, strength, inspiration and zest for life.
The desk should be placed in such a way that you neither have the door in the back nor look directly out of the window
In Feng Shui, colors, shapes and materials of the interior play a major role. They are assigned to the five elements wood, fire, earth, metal and water. These elements should be in balance. The harmony is achieved with the help of the furnishings and home accessories. Where, for example, a lot of white and silver predominate, dark accents set a balancing opposite pole. Even plants have a very balancing effect and are indispensable for the furnishings according to Feng Shui.

The bed in which one sleeps, should be absolutely new, because everything concerning cleanliness and order, with Feng Shui needs special attention. Only then can the famous qi energy flow freely. This statement also applies to the order in cellars and cupboards.

Candlesticks, crystal bowls and wind chimes are typical Feng Shui accessories
The arrangement of the furniture in the room requires a lot of sensitivity. The directions and the flow of energy play a central role here. For example, the bed should be against a wall with the headboard and should not be between the window and the door. The desk should be placed in such a way that you neither have the door in the back nor look directly out of the window.
Various light sources in the room work harmoniously and enliven dark corners. Glasses, mirrors and shiny surfaces also stimulate the flow of positive energy. Candlesticks, crystal bowls and wind chimes are suitable accessories for this because they redirect the Qi energy back into the right path.
Feng Shui is a whole lesson with many rules and regulations. Nevertheless, it can be combined with all furnishing styles, whether modern, Mediterranean or country style.
