Recently I wrote a post all about the Feng Shui after watching expert Marie Diamond talk about how it can work in your home and for your life. One area in particular that can drastically make improvements in your life when certain changes are made is the office. Your office at home and at work is focused around your career success, wealth and potential opportunities. You may only have to make a couple of changes to the arrangement in your office before you see improvements for the better!
Here are 8 cool inspirational designed offices that have the basic Feng Shui set up for success! A couple you might recognize….
The feature image is a neutral space injected with life from the green plants. Depending on what your job is colour can help with your focus in that area.
This is the office of jewellery line Vita Fede designed by interior designer and blogger Aimee Song. One of the key elements in the office Feng Shui dynamic is having something of “solid support” behind you. Both physically and metaphorically. In this case the wall and books of inspiration that resonate with you. Like the classic Tom Ford fashion book on the book shelf.
The office of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop designed by RH. The Feng Shui principles are based on the 5 elements. Water, fire, wood, metal and earth. So its important to maintain balance in your office. Having a wooden desk is good starting point and adding in some plants doesn’t hurt either.
The colours and finishes make a difference in your office too. Gold represents wealth and success so it’s good to have some gold somewhere. Use gold accessories or choose furniture with gold detailing.
Often people put up photos of family and loved ones in their office. But your office might be the best place to put them. Instead, put up your logo, your vision board and your work. This is to keep you focused on where you’re heading and on improvements you’re making. Artist Megan Hess has her art work as her gallery backdrop.
If you have natural light available, make the most out of it!
Remember the most important Feng Shui office rule. Is have your desk facing the door if possible. All the offices shown in this post have that same set up. Toronto designer Anne Hepfer has kept to that rule in this office design.
