Feng Shui. It’s an ancient Chinese practice closely related to Acupuncture. Feng Shui can heal, calm and balance energy flow in a home; similar to how Acupuncture does this for the body. Windows are a big part of the process of creating soothing and supportive environments through the application of Feng Shui principles within interior design.
A term used in Feng Shui to refer to a source of energy is “the mouth of Chi” – Chi, meaning life force/energy, mouth referring to the entrance. Just as the mouth is where nutrients or toxins enter a body, a door or window is where these energies enter a home.
Honor your windows with beautiful window treatments that fit your décor, lifestyle, and energy flow. Beyond the need for privacy or light filtering, window treatments are the frame for the art, your view.
For example, if you have a beautiful view, a simple yet elegant drapery may allow the view to “pop” and be a focal point. If a window is a view of the street and cars, consider a top/down treatment to camouflage the view, creating a calm and peaceful space inside, while still allowing daylight in and the sky or treetops to be seen. You can also use these principles to inform the style of your deck awning to match your home.
