Because nourishment is so vital to our health and well-being, Feng Shui encourages us to design a pleasant and serene dining environment. Turn off the telephone, play soft music, set the table, light candles, and dine at a leisurely pace. The more hectic your days are, the more important the ritual of dining is to your health and happiness. Such a place slows you down enough to become aware of the Ch’i qualities in your food. You also receive the invaluable gift of connecting with yourself and other people who may be breaking bread with you. Make your dining room an oasis where you can nourish both the body and the spirit.
Because mirrors “wake up” a room, they belong in active rooms such as the living room, family room, home office, bathroom, and kitchen. This same quality usually makes mirrors too active for dining rooms and bedrooms.

Love to you and your family,
Comfort and safety are two of the most important factors to consider when designing and furnishing a home. Simply put, comfort and safety greatly enhance the positive flow of Ch’i in your home, while their absence diminishes Ch’i considerably. Let the beauty of your home be born out of safe and comfortable designs you choose.
Many “hyperactive” children are sleeping in bedrooms with bright red sheets, and walls full of action figures. Calm their bedrooms by replacing bright colors with skin tones that wrap children in a cozy, tranquil embrace. Choose serene or happy art that doesn’t fly, fall, drive, or race around the room.

For safety’s sake, store knives in a drawer. Keep the kitchen environment appetizing by placing trash and recycling containers behind closed doors in cabinets, closets, or pantries. If these containers are currently out in the open, decide how you can rearrange the kitchen to accommodate them.
