Hello! This is the second Feng Shui Interior Design lesson, also the sixth lesson of the Master Class. In the last class we learned the three critical elements of Feng Shui interior design – door, bedroom and kitchen. This time we shall learn the principles governing the interior design of other parts of your house/flat. Do you want to know how to design your study room/home office? Where should you pay attention to when designing the toilet? How to decorate the living room? We shall look at these topics in this lesson.
Feng Shui Interior Design – Study Room/Home Office
It is quite common nowadays to have home office in residential units. Many people who work freelance or even full time prefer and have the luxury to work at home. Even not, if you have a kid at home who goes to school, the study room is where you need to put a lot of efforts in when doing Feng Shui interior design for your house/flat.
To fully explain the requirements of a study room/home office, it would take the length of a whole book (in fact I have an e-book in this topic: Feng Shui Office – Your Quick Start Guide). Here we look at the essential elements that all Feng Shui masters consider when looking at the Feng Shui of a study or working place.
The above is a perfect setting of a desk for study or work. Because it conforms with all requirements. In regardless of directions and calculations, this is how an office should look like.
Firstly, there should be a solid backing support. Just like what we studied in the external Feng Shui lesson, it is preferred to have support at the back. The full height solid wall in the figure above meets this requirement. If the back of your seat is not firm and stable, e.g. an aisle, the sign of “flow” and “movement” would affect your career life.
Secondly, the left hand side is higher than the right hand side since the computer / cabinet is on the left. Why is this important? According to Form Feng Shui theory, left means benefactors (support) while right is bad person (challenge). In the past, when people find a location to build a house, they look for places where the mountain on the left is higher than the right.
We re-create the same in the office. The best situation is you have a full-height cabinet on the left hand side of the desk. If not, put the desktop computer or piles of documents on the left hand side of the desk. The ultimate goal is to have a higher-left and lower-right.
It is not difficult to achieve the second requirement, because you usually can decide what to put on your desk. But what if the back of my seating is not a wall? What could I do? Read the paragraph below.
