Interior Design

An essential role in our lives occupies the career we decide to pursue in life. This sector is responsible for spheres life-related with authority, influence, power, and privileges at work. It is particularly important for persons working in a sphere with a rigid hierarchy system (such as military, politics, international corporations, etc.). For people working in arts (painters, artists, sculptors, etc.) and in the commercial sector, this sector is important to act if you desire to reach a particular social recognition, a director’s positioning that gives authority and privileges. Moreover, this sector is also vital to people carrying about their personal growth and self-development. Persons who already achieved the highest rank and those expecting retirement also need to curate this sector – to help them keep the positioning and arrive at retirement without any unexpected obstacles. Oriental cultures strongly believe in the power of pure energy bringing good luck and fortune. Undoubtedly, nothing can be achieved without hard work and perseverance; Feng Shui thought is an ancient art that you can apply in your home to increase chances in life, potentiate your career and achieve personal good luck. 

One of the essential aspects of life is relationships and family. The millennian practice of Feng Shui, whose purpose is to improve a human’s experience, clean life path, and boost energy where is lacking, gives particular attention to this sector of Love and Relationships. Researchers say that this sector of life is interesting people, even more than wealth and prosperity. It is probably because nothing in life can compensate for the lack of love and reciprocal comprehension. That is the reason why it is so vital to curate with attention and care this sector of life, even if at present you are in a good loving relationship with your partner and family members. 

In the practice of Feng Shui, extreme attention is given to the bedroom – it is considered the most important space in the house, even more, important than the living room or kitchen. A healthy and harmonious relationship between spouses is the most significant guarantee for happy and lasting well-being in the family. Before starting to activate the sector of love and relationships, first control your bedroom and make sure it complies with Feng-Shui's essential rules.

Now we start to see in-depth each sector, and Feng Shui practices suggest applying to potentiate a particular field. Today we will see what techniques and talismans proposes Feng Shui to potentiate the Sector of Wealth & Prosperity, otherwise called the Sector of Money. It is the direction of South-East, governed by the Wood element

At all times, this sector had significant importance to people, no matter where they lived or when. Many consider that although we may have good health and great kids, our happiness is incomplete if there will be no housing wealth. Moreover, in oriental cultures, being wealthy is not considered shameful, so in China, it is common to wish for themselves and dear people to have “wealth and prosperity”. Europeans, arriving on these lands, perceive with bewilderment the openness and overt display of wealth. However, in the Orient is a habit to place their wealth at sight not necessary to impress guests, but because of their firm belief that it will attract even more the energy of success and wealth into their lives. They firmly believe that Qi's procreative energy is attracted to areas in order, pure, bright, shiny, and beautiful. 

Many cultures around the world, since ancient times, have the tradition to wear shiny decorative objects, embellish clothes with knitting symbolics (flowers, graphics), hair and jewelry of all kinds, as a way to protect themselves from the evil eye and as a protector through the life path, or other times as a symbol of love and prosperity (particularly for women). No decorative element was attached by chance – everything had a meaning and a purpose of serving and helping the one wearing it. A similar sense we will find in the Indian tradition of Trivarga (the three aims of Hinduism), which is composed of Dharma, Artha, and Kama, where Dharma – is the law, Kama – is the will, and Artha – is the material benefit. Even here, the element of wealth is an integral part of a human’s wellbeing. 

Now, let us dive more in-depth and explore how particularly Feng Shui suggests acting to potentiate this life sector, which is Wealth and Prosperity?

Interior Design > FENG SHUI - Where To Start

Before making any significant changes in your homes by applying the principles of FENG SHUI, it will be correct to start with a general clearance! Yes, to draw a new life, you will need a “white canvas,” so to speak. 

Start with making a general decluttering in every corner of every room, in the entire house, basement, and rooftop included. See what is old, broken, scratched, cracked, too small/too large, unused, and ugly – all of it must go! That is holding negative energy, like stain water. Unleash the energy of your home by cleaning the air and all the surfaces. It will prepare the base for a new start and will be ready to embrace new things into your life. Better things!

Interior Design > FENG SHUI - The Basics to Know

FENG SHUI means the science about the “wind” and the “water” or the conduction of “directions and flows.” Everything that surrounds us is energy, and it can be favorable, or it can be harmful. The science of feng-shui gives us suggestions (other ways called “methodologies”) how we can protect ourselves from the destructive energy and, at the same time, how to use the procreative energy flow of Qi to increase our well-being. 

Agrias is amongst the most beautiful butterflies in the world. Agrias Amydon distributes from Mexico to Bolivia, found in central Peru, and Amazonas state, Brazil. 

It has a warm color palette, where the predominant color is a tint of yellow with dark brown, almost black framing. Some vivid orange patches decorate the upper wings, and light blue spots are present on the lower branches. Altogether, it is a warm and striking combination scheme that we can use as inspiration to brighten up a living space.

The Aegean World, or otherwise known as Cretan-Minoan was formed by the ancient peoples living in the IV-II millennium B. C. (the Bronze era) on the territories situated on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean basin: continental Greece, the island Crete, the Cyclades islands and the western coast of Asia Minor. Mycenaean civilization is typical for the territory of continental Greece. Crete is associated with the Minoan civilization from the Bronze era. While on the Cyclades islands and the continental regions were present their distinctive regional cultures. Navigation, together with commerce, has brought to the economic development of these territories and elaborated similar building techniques. At the same time, the priority on developing different regions was continually changing, and along with it were amending the original characteristics and their distinctive architectural elements.

Living spaces for Gods, houses for people. How do people of Egypt lived in different times, created living spaces, and temples to give tribute to divinity and celebrating rituals? Oh, Egypt, the land of Pharaohs, golden jewelry with precious stones and pyramids.

Egypt is positioning on both sides of the Nile River, which was the life-giving source, on North having the Mediterranean Sea, on the east was bounded by the Arabian Desert and the Red Sea, and on the west by the Libyan Desert. This positioning decided many aspects of the materials used in construction and for furnishings. The first material used to build shelters was papyrus. Then people learned how to make bricks from clay and straws, using the mud of the Nile, since it was economical and easily accessible. The river has also allowed transporting imported wood that was using into constructions, like cedar, pine, cypress, ash, ebony, elm, linden, and other. In smaller amounts were used local wood, such as acacia, palm, and sycamore. Because of the arid territory, under heat and sun, the local vegetation was seing as a source of life and preserved. Monumental architecture, such as temples and palaces, was made of stone, abundant on Egypt lands. The quantity and variety of natural rocks defined the preference: granite, sandstone, limestone, and alabaster were preferred over quartzite and basalt. 

A floral color scheme is a perfect choice for a bedroom. It will remind us of the blossoms in an English garden: rich fabrics enriched with lilies, daisies, poppies, cornflowers, that will make us dream and fly like butterflies.
