A designer came out to our home last night. We have a few things to work on before the wedding guests descend in July and we felt that we needed some outside expertise. The designer loved our home and also loved our uncluttered style of living. I know that this is a surprise to many of you who follow me regularly on the blog, but I am a bit of a neat freak. When we moved to Kingston, we did a lot of purging. Frankly, we still need to do some more. But our house does present a calm, minimalist tone although apparently a bit too much Yang and not enough Yin.
The designer introduced me to the work of Terah Kathryn Collins. She wrote the book The Western Guide to Feng Shui. I will get a copy of her book and last night I was able to read a number of her articles here.
The system itself is a bit more complicated than I originally thought. As you can see from the chart below, it is no easy task to balance design. Our designer had some terrific ideas and I am looking forward to working with her. We start the process on Friday.
