Feng Shui Bedroom Design

 

Before – bland and lacking privacy

 After – a romantic retreat with good Feng Shui

 A woman recently contacted me for feng shui interior design services. Her apartment was an exciting triplex in Manhattan with a breathtaking view of the Empire State Building.

Among the areas I was to focus on was feng shui for love. Looking at the bedroom, it was clear that that the space was romantically challenged. The bedroom was in a loft-like area above the living room, with only a half wall separating it from the rest of the space. So basically, her bedroom was on display to everyone who enters the house. This is not good feng shui for love, since a feng shui bedroom is a space that feels romantic, cozy, and private.

However, the client did not want to close off her bedroom from the rest of the space, since it didn’t get much natural light. So my solution was to add a wall of sheer draperies. This accomplished several things: it made the room much more private, while allowing soft light to filter through. It also created a dreamy feeling in the bedroom, which is good love feng shui. Furthermore, as I did the advanced flying star feng shui compass analysis of the home, it was clear that the feng shui cure for her bedroom was the Water element. Based on her home’s specific feng shui (each home is different) water would enhance romance.

Water element can be added by using an actual water feature (such as a fountain or aquarium) or using the colors associated with water, which are blue or black. I decided on a large, custom tufted blue upholsterd headboard to draw romance to the bed!

The finished space feels sexy, cozy, and elegant. Good feng shui is present in the selection of colors, furnishings, even position of the bed. Now, the stage is set for Mr. Right…

Welcome!

Goddess Laxmi

I have chosen to start this blog on my birthday. I see the blog as a birth of sorts, to a part of me that I have wanted to express.

I would like to begin by invoking the grace of the Goddess Lakshmi. This Indian deity embodies beauty, wealth, health and abundance of all kinds. To me, she represents the essence of what I strive to express in my work at Reiko Design. With each client, my goal is to provide them with an environment that will attract to them their highest goals and deepest desires. An abode where Lakshmi would feel welcomed. 

Traditionally, prayers to Lakshmi are made before embarking on a new endeavor, asking for her blessings for a fortuitous outcome. May we all experience the fulfillment of our visions and may our lives be graced by endless abundance.
