Feng Shui – principles and their importance for interior design
The ancient Chinese teaching Feng Shui affects all walks of life. We begin by presenting the basic rules of this Far Eastern philosophy of life. Then we talk about their concrete use in interior design.
Anyone interested in Feng Shui knows that the flow of chi energy, as well as the harmonious interaction of the five elements – water, wood, metal, earth and fire – are of fundamental importance in our lives. This applies to all areas of life, but Feng Shui also teaches us how to achieve inner balance in our homes.

But let’s take a step back! Behind Feng Shui teaching lies a certain belief in the mode of functioning of our world. This is based on the consideration of certain principles and we now come to these.

There are no random encounters
The first principle on which Feng Shui is based is the belief that no meeting in this world is accidental. Everyone comes into our lives as help, teaching, etc. Each person helps us to cope with a certain situation or to see something essential.
The philosophy of Feng Shui teaching
Everything happens the way it should be
The second principle is that every event is the only possible thing in a certain situation. The things could not be otherwise.
This statement refers to even the smallest details. Every situation in our lives is absolutely right, even if it provokes our life principles and our ego.
This statement must not be understood fatalistically. We should just realize that no situation happens independently of us. On the contrary, it is a projection of our inner world and can only be changed by it.
Every situation in our lives is absolutely right
Everything starts when it has to start
Everything happens at the right moment – that is the third principle of Feng Shui. It did not happen too early or too late. Everything starts when we are ready for its beginning.
What’s over is over
When something comes to an end, it helps us to continue our lives. We should always learn from every situation in life and take this lesson with us and use it for our better development.

The interior and the Feng-Shui philosophy
But what does all this have to do with the interior design and Feng Shui principles? And why is it so important that we shape our house in a certain way when “everything happens the way it had to be”?
Feng Shui in the interior design
The Feng Shui principles do not rob us of the freedom to understand or ignore the teachings of life.
The design principles of Feng Shui help us to reflect the relationship between our inner and outer world as well as to enhance our perception of the deep meaning of life.

Colors and shapes play a significant role here
So, when you set up your home to bring more prosperity into your life, you need to be prepared that this does not happen the way you originally intended.

It may be that, thanks to the proper Feng Shui arrangement and home décor, we survive critical moments that teach us why the good will stay away from us. When we understand the deep meaning of the whole thing, everything happens smoother in life.
