I love blue because of the sense of freedom that transmits. A clearsky, an ocean, a lake in the mountains. Blue things carry freedom within. I love the fragrance of white musk because it has a wild scent, likethe woods in whichonly the brave can get in. Einaudi and his notes always take me far away, where no one can find me.
An apartment has always hidden and revealed details on us that are kept secret within ourselves.
The need to furnish with care, respecting what we intimately are, represents a focal point on the feelings of calmness that a house exudes. The so called vibrations. They are present to the extent that a place tells us something unheard of.
Houses need to communicate with a language that’s authentic, simple and truthful. They have to suit what we are and what we are becoming every day. That’s why the idea of periodically moving the furniture is healthy: we are active movement, constant evolution, constructive development.
Today we are going to talk about a discipline that comes from the East. A lot of people have been hearing about this for a long time. Spending words on this art is always a pleasure: FengShui. It aims to create harmony between ourselves and the space surrounding us while exploring our inner self. Harmony in the spaces that are an extension of what we are living.
These two words recall natural elements such as water and wind, they symbolize peace and balance.
In FengShui the principles of the magnetic fields are gathered: disposing all the furniture with criteria.
The basic principle is minimal reorganizing: getting rid of everything that weighs you down and obfuscates your true essence.
Piling objects up in the house is like filling your mind and soul with everything that you don’t need anymore: it blocks you from having the right energies circulating spontaneously.
That’s why when we talk about FengShui we are also talking about decluttering: getting rid of everything that’s unnecessary.
Getting rid of things is the basis of the mainrules. Welcoming, reorganizing and forbidding television from the bedroomwith conviction.
Bed is a sacred place. You sleep, you dream, you regenerate and you love in it.
Even too many mirrors represent a block.
Colors for developing energetic balance, magnetic channels to attract positive hidden energies. Choosing the right paint for the walls is an act of healthy self-expression.
We need to choose the color that we feel is best for us: warm tones, not too intense, such as amber, light copper and cream give a fresh, welcoming and vital look to the house. They enhancethe sense of sharing.
Natural lighting is essential. A well exposed apartment with wide windows is, as our grandfathers used to tell us, a healthy space. The natural therapeutic characteristics of the sun wake the endorphins up and give us a shot of happiness.
In FengShuibeing loving, understanding and welcoming is essential. Disposing furniture by the principle of hospitality: the bed facing the window, the couch facing the kitchen area (if you don’t have a separate kitchen), the table in an area of the house free from clutter.
A few adaptations that will make of ourspaces better places in which we can express ourselves and innovate.
This is what LASP System constantly recommends together with its designers.
And you, how much care do you put into furnishing your house?
