Feng Shui Friday


My education in Feng Shui, or the art of placement,began in Japan in 1992. I was teaching English in Sendai, and my employers and his wife were trying to have a baby. One Feng Shui Master and 5 empty white picture frames later, they were expecting, and I was hooked. Over the next 20 years, I've consumed over 30 books on the subject, and have practiced 3 variations of Feng Shui from 3 schools of thought in my many consultations. I have arrived at a practice that combines the Form School, Flying Star elements, and Black Hat, or Western Feng Shui. I utilize traditional Feng Shui principles, but use a Western perspective with respect to architecture, property layout, and land location. I've completed a gold level Feng Shui practitioners program and am a graduate and professional member of the International Feng Shui Guild. My expertise lies in achieving a balance of all areas in a retail or personal space while maintaining the aesthetic integrity in order to achieve the client's goals. -Melissa Leib.

Recently, I was asked about house colors and if there are suspicious and not suspicious house colors.

In Feng Shui, there is much disagreement about this.

Color is important, but it depends on so many things. When your house was built, the direction of your house, the predominant material of your house and the inhabitants. This is why Feng Shui seems so complicated-it is! 

It is best to honor the material and to keep colors organic if you want to be safe. This gives a lot of choices but excludes magenta, purple, neon green-colors most of us don’t generally use for good reason. When in doubt, calm, natural tones are best and create a peaceful and welcoming presence for your home.
