Being lock-down in your home for weeks on end. Did you redesign your home in your head? Let’s face it your home over night turned into a your prison, workplace and school setting. Did you not come to the realisation that 2020 was a year to reinvent your interior design within your house?

Feng Shui

During being lockup did you evaluate the feng shui quality you lived in? How did it make you feel? Did you then throw out so much stuff that made you feel horrible? Did you think when doing so what on earth was I thinking holding on to this worthless crap? Being cooped up did you realise how neglected your home has been?

Did you think go on the internet look at home designs and dream of a feng shui home that would allow you to be more creative. Give you more working space?

Let me encourage you to declutter, swap, loan and borrow items to create your new feng shui home.

Venice Venetian Homes

I was lockdown for months in a small tiny flat. my views were lovely but my feng shui was utter soul destroying. I was in the process of moving and after lockdown I actually sold all my household goods. I gave lots away including every item that made me feel ill.

So my home is actually travelling month to month here in Italy. My new home is Venice and it is one of the most stunning cities in the world.

What a wonderful way to be inspired by interior design and feng shui by staying in a hotel that is 600 years old, called Relais Alberti

Bed Linen

Your bed is where you rest, creates babies and spend on average 8 hours. Choose you bed linen wisely. make sure it all matches. And don’t neglect your back. A good mattress is a must.

Loan, Swap And Gift

Did lockdown highlight how much items you have that you could have loaned, gifted or swapped. learn these skills and be mindful of the powerful revelation. That covid 19 showed us how little we need to live with and how all around the globe that nature had a good rest from us.

Every where I live now is loaned, gifted or swapped. Go on a Facebook forums and share what you have and what you need. Gift your items you don’t want. Swap items you need and ask to borrow furniture for awhile. When you have had enough give it back.

 

Inspirations For Your Feng Shui

Being here in Venice I have always been a lover of everything opulent. I love antique items. That were handcrafted and have a history behind it.

I adore palazzo s and everything fresco ceilings. I am a lover of silk, linen and every cloth that is made and manufactured here in Italy. I support small brands that take the time to create items that also are mindful of the environment.

Venetian Homes

I dream of my own palazzo. But then why don’t I just loan one. Why don’t you and i swap our homes for awhile? Why don’t we gift or swap items we love weeing on others. I gifted shoes, plates and clothing to friends who I recalled saying to me. I love what you are wearing or using.

Their smile was priceless when I gifted them.

By doing this you and I are treasuring your own feng shui soul. By doing so you are nurturing  what will make you be the best possible him an being there is. And by doing so giving to others so we live in a better place.

Walking throughout the 600 year old Venetian home I soon realised how much I have neglected my home the place I sleep, eat and work.

Venice

Walking the streets and in and out of shops, churches and museums. I truly understand my love for Europe. The people who made this city a thousand years ago. Are you a huge new lover of the colour coral reef and how it got to use here in Venice?

Olive Green Is The Colour Of Creativity

Whenever I am in Italy olive green and everything green is the fashion and interior inspiration we should all adopt within our home regarding feng shui. It is a colour that nurtures the souls for new beginnings and creativity. Do you like olive green for your home?

Choose your colours well that make you feel and be creative in your home. Your home is now your office and place to educate your kids for at least I feel one to two years.

Take Your Time

You have more time that ever to redesign your home. Take it slowly, think and anything you have that gives you a bad feeling or a depressing feeling. make sure you get rid of it. Objects have power to make you feel happy and sad. Take photo’s of your room before and after shots. So you see the transformation of house and your mind.

That is what feng shui is all about. Living in an environment that makes you feel powerful, productive and calm.

Cloth Silk Wallpaper

Don’t neglect your walls. I adore silk cloth wallpaper on walls. they are a brilliant zoom background. Did you not judge your work colleagues homes during lock-down when on zoom?

Attention to detail is all about your feng shui.

Furniture

Antique furniture is cheap right now. So it is easier to get it for a great price. Try to hunt people down for gifting, loaning and swapping you existing furniture for something different.
