Feng Shui- Feng means wind and shui means water… Lots of times when I step into a room I stand in center and spin slowly it is not that I am doing a dance but rather looking around to see how the flow of the room is or how we would like the Feng Shui of the room to be. Many of my clients do take in consideration the flow of a room. To make a room look bigger you add a mirror, to make a room look smaller add dark paint on the wall. Many times we do not realize that small adjustments can Feng Shui your room.
