About The Video
Feng Shui is often confused with interior design. But these two practices are fundamentally different.
What many people don’t realize is that Feng Shui and interior design can be used hand in hand for powerful benefits — if you know what’s the difference between them.
In this video, Feng Shui Master Marie Diamond helps to dispel the biggest myths about Feng Shui and shares how you can put this system to good use in your living environment.
What’s The Difference Between Interior Design And Feng Shui?
Interior design is creating a beautiful space with fabrics and furniture and beautiful images. Feng shui is an energy system. It has principles and rules. It can be used by interior designers but it’s a completely different system. —Marie Diamond
Interior design is often confused with feng shui because, as Marie Diamond explains in the video above, interior designers often use feng shui in their work.
But it’s important to understand their fundamental differences. Because the two practices aren’t synonymous and are used to achieve different results.
Many are familiar with the basics of interior design: creating a visually appealing space by careful placement of furniture and accent decor.
But feng shui works to create not just a visually appealing space, but an energetically harmonious one.
How does feng shui really work?
Feng shui is based on an entirely different system than interior design.
Designing a harmonious space for you is a process that’s unique to your home, your personality, and your personal needs.
What works for one person in their home might not necessarily be useful in your home because there are many things to be taken into account.
Marie explains that when she’s working with the client, she has to take into account many details of both the home and the client before she can make a recommendation.
For example, the location of your home, the surrounding landscape, and even your birth date all play a key role in determining the proper feng shui of your home.
Do I Need Good Interior Design To Have Good Feng Shui?
Because people often confuse interior design with feng shui, they believe that one can’t exist without the other.
But this isn’t true.
You can have good interior design and poor feng shui. And you can also have good feng shui and poor interior design.
You don’t need to go out and purchase new furniture and accent pieces for your office or home in order to increase its feng shui.
In fact, good feng shui is often just a matter of rearranging what you already own!
What’s most important is that you feel comfortable and happy in the space.
Marie suggests that you should start with what you have. Use pictures and items around your home that you already own to create better feng shui in your space.
With just a little knowledge and practice, you can create better energy in your home and workspace to encourage productivity, abundance, and personal success.
