As a luxury interior designer with a fondness for feng shui, I’m here to design some positive vibes into your beautiful home! Today, we’re diving into the mystical world of the Bagua, an ancient feng shui tool that will help you infuse your spaces with harmony, prosperity, and a dash of zen!
The Feng Shui Bagua
First, the Bagua (pronounced “bah-gwah”) is an ancient Chinese system that acts as a map to arrange your living spaces to optimize the flow of positive energy, also known as “Qi” (pronounced “chee”). Basically, it’s like GPS for good vibes, but instead of navigating roads, you’re navigating your home!
What on earth is this “Bagua” thing, you may wonder? I’m about to let you in on the best-kept design secret!
Second, imagine your home is a blank canvas, and the Bagua is the ultimate design palette, sprinkling positivity in all the right places. It’s divided into eight areas, each representing a different aspect of life, or life aspiration area. These areas are Wealth & Prosperity, Fame & Reputation, Love & Relationships, Family & Health, Creativity & Children, Knowledge & Wisdom, Career & Life Path, and Helpful People & Travel.
