Part of helping our clients in a changing market is to be creative and resourceful about how we prepare and market properties. We have been exploring the use of Feng Shui in our staging over the last few months and thought we would introduce the woman who has been helping us. Danielle Varanda, owner of International Feng Shui Design, has been practicing Feng Shui principals for many years and is offering our clients a special rate for consultations. If you have interest in improving your space, and your lives, give her a call!
We asked Danielle to give us insight into how Feng Shui principals work in our homes:
“Just as we are all unique individuals, so are the spaces we live in. We tend to gravitate to places that resonate with us and our lives. Individuals will find some styles of homes more appealing to them then others, and different locations will appeal to different people. For instance, extroverted people tend to live on a more dynamic street and people who are a bit more reserved will often prefer a quiet, calm neighborhood.
Not only do our homes reflect us in our taste and lifestyle, we can say that our homes nourish us and we nourish our homes. Our space either enhances us or may in some cases hinder us. Our homes reflect, or could even be the cause of, what is going on in certain aspects of our lives. For example, how well are things going in our financial affairs? Do we have enough money coming into our lives? If so, are we able to hang on to it or does it tend to slip away? In the area of our health, how well do the people in the house sleep? Are there health issues with the people who live there? How is the overall energy of the people living in the home? Are the relationships within the home harmonious or is there often conflict? Did these changes occur after moving or remodeling?”
These and many other things are seen through Feng Shui principals. When we keep these principals in mind we can literally see why these things are occurring, understand the source of the issues and ultimately offer solutions to improve the situation.”
Danielle recently consulted for one of our listings and we believe her guidance contributed to the successful sale of that home. If you would like to hear more, or have any questions, just give us a call!
