Reiko Feng Shui tips for bedside tables in The New York Times

Check out today’s Home section of The New York Times  for the fascinating article, The Bedside Battleground. I was delighted to be one of the designers asked about the ideal bedside table in this age of new technologies, sleep devises, medications and a million other items we keep close at hand every night.

Here are some additional Feng Shui tips for your bedside table:

~ For healthy romance, it is important that you have two bedside tables. It represents balance in the relationship.

~A substantial bedside table is best. It honors you and your rest and relaxation. (You also don’t want the insecurity of knocking things off of it in the middle of the night.) It should be able to accommodate whatever you need in an organized and accessible way.

~ I like a table with a large surface on top, one drawer and one open shelf. That seems to satisfy most people’s bed time needs.

~ Consider a round end table, or at least one with rounded corners. Sleeping with a sharp corner near your head is not good Feng Shui and can disrupt restful sleep.

 ~ Overall, the experience in the bedroom, especially near the bed, should be one of softness, warmth, and safety. To feel like you are floating on a cloud, or wrapped in a soft cocoon in your bed is ideal Feng Shui.

Sweet dreams...
