Feng Shui has become an increasingly popular interior design phenomenon in recent years, especially with the rise of biophilic interior design. It’s a lifestyle philosophy that comes to us from traditional Chinese practices. Its name means “wind-water”, and comes from an ancient Chinese poem that talks of life being in harmony with the natural world.
This is exactly what Feng Shui tries to achieve in interior design: a natural balance that tries to harness the energy and harmony of the natural world. It is believed that achieving this balance can lead to greater success in all aspects of life. To implement this balance, we need to understand and embody the essential principles of Feng Shui: the commanding position, the Bagua, and the five elements. But to be able to apply these principles today, we must first understand what Feng Shui means today.
Feng Shui 2021
According to the Chinese calendar, 2021 is the year of the metal ox. Feng Shui indicates that it is a time when hard work and intelligence will reap the most rewards. So this means that 2021 is a year you should work to build a solid foundation for the future. It is a time for you to strive for a long-term commitment, discipline, and dedication. To ensure success, Feng Shui interior design must therefore reflect your commitment to these principles with spaces that are designed to encourage productivity and wealth. Fortunately, these goals are attainable through the roadmap that is the Bagua.
