Plants Make it Pretty

Wilton Photographers Michael Biondo Photography Eclectic Garage And Shed by Hershey Photographers Amy Renea Did you read yesterday’s post?  Ok, we’ll wait while you click here.   Be it ever so lovely there’s no place like home.  What’s one thing you can do to your house to make it feel “homey”?  Add plants.  Greenery. Flowers.  They give instant home appeal.  This goes for staging your house for sale, as well.  Plants make a room more inviting and more inviting gets buyers. Portland Interior Designers & Decorators Jessica Helgerson Interior Design Did you know that house plants can improve the quality of air in your house?  The air quality in your own home is usually much worse than the outdoor one.  Synthetic chemical cleaning products, foam in our furniture and carpet, and other building materials in our houses all emit toxins.  Then there is mold, tobacco smoke, poorly ventilated cooking sources…  I’m sort of freaking myself out.  Open some windows everyone. I’m perusing around the web and a lot of folks concur these are some of the …

Random Feng-Shui(ish) Monday

  Two Things. Did you know if you open your windows and clap your hands you empty the negative energy from your house? Trust me.  What do you have to lose except negative energy?  Plus it is MONDAY… We did it.     AND did you know that getting rid of 21 things frees up the energy in your house? I did it.  Just don’t tell my boys.       The energy in the play room is PHENOMENAL.  21 things gone. Monday’s challenge.  Open your windows, clap your hands, and get rid of 21 things. Positive Energy is waiting.  

Where is Your Feng Shui Commanding Position?

Eclectic Bedroom by Atlanta Photographers Erica George Dines Photography   Have you ever walked into a room and just felt plain old yucky when you entered it?  You probably blamed it on the fact that it was too dark, bright, smelly, uncomfortable, stark, cluttered, hot, cold or just weird.  Well, all those things contribute to whether a space has good energy or not.  We want good energy.  Too many things are just draining the heck out of our energy so for crying out loud our own house should NOT. Feng Shui is basically how energy flows in your space.  It is an ancient art and science that is thousands of years old.  The idea behind it for our purposes is we want optimal health and good fortune in the spaces we occupy–and applying Feng Shui practices can make this happen. So today we are going to talk about where our beds and where our desks should be positioned–for the best energy or optimal Feng Shui. The Feng Shui commanding position in any room is the spot …

What Door Do You Use?

I feel like this title is suppose to be symbolic in a self-help kind of way–like “Who’s Packing Your Parachute?”, or “How Full is Your Bucket?” But what I really mean is, what door do you use?  When you come home, what door do you enter through?  I would love to claim to be a feng-shui expert, but if you read my post Strong Moms Empower you would know I am terrible at the analytical collection of data. And you apparently need to do one of these to do Eastern Feng-Shui.  Well how about Wester Feng-Shui?  My understanding is that it only scratches the surface vs the deeper, more serious, and traditional method of the Eastern way. But, hey, let’s not be deep and just scratch the surface… Years ago, I actually read multiple books on Western Feng-Shui so I’m practically an expert…  Feng shui (the computer keeps auto correcting this to “fang she”—and I keep missing it, will this post get published with a rogue “fang she”?) is basically how you arrange your belongings so there …
