Achieve Feng Shui In Your Home



If you take the time to dig into the philosophy around feng shui, you'll understand that it doesn't come off as esoteric as one my think. It's based around the simple practices to make a home feel healthier and a lot more organized. It also helps you to connect to your home, in a way that can affect your mood and well being. Feng shui is as common as "spring-cleaning," or decorating to make a home feel much more comfortable.
This ancient Chinese tradition can be incorporated into your own home. It can be done in a modern holistic approach, while still honoring the age-old traditions that come with feng shui. It's not about transforming the structure of your home, but instead making it to evolve into a space that refreshes your home - and in turn your health. The following feng shui tips will do a little more than just bring some harmony into your home, they can potentially increase the value of your home's selling price.
Let's get into to the best feng shui decorating tips for your house below!

1. Slow Down Your Home's Energy Flow:
The the back door and the front door have a direct line of sight, that means the energy in the home, or the chi, will flow through the home too fast. Instead of it going straight out of the back door, you want it to undulate throughout the whole home in a graceful and even manner. The best way to slow down this flow is to place a patteren rug on the floor in front of the front door, add artwork on the walls, or add a round entry table to the foyer space. 
2. De-Clutter Your House:
Decluttering your home may seem like an obvious enough solution,  we can all be guilty of letting our content accumulate in our home, that may not have a specific function. Clutter is more than just unappealing visually, it's an anchor for the energy in a home. An excessive amount of clutter can stop you from having clarity of thought, and even weigh you down emotionally. Feng shui isn't focused on having a perfectly styled home, but instead, provide a happier and healthier environment. Be sure to have the correction organization throughout your home. From paying bills, to recycling content, and even something as simple as a designated spot for your keys. It'll help you feel less frazzled and feel more efficient in your day to day routine.
3. Front Door Path Must Be Kept Clear:
The front door in a home is an important factor to feng shui. It's the main portal through which the energy from outside will enter into your home. You want to make sure the energy flows uninterrupted through the front door, without "metaphorically" running into a wall. Keep your front door area free of clutter and consider installing a mirror near the front door. This can hold the meaning that you are expanding the energy in the space, which in turn expands the opportunities within your life - and prevents you from feeling limited.
4. Balancing The Five Elements
Whether present physically, or symbolically, the five elements you can find in a home are earth, fire, wood, metal, and water. The fire element can be brought into a home with warmer tones, or physically through a fireplace and burning candle. You want to ensure there is a balance between all of the elements. People can easily be drawn to an element that can cause an imbalance in their life. For example, if a person were to find themselves rather aggressive, they'd want to avoid a large amount of fire elements - such as a bright red wall. If a person is lacking motivation in their life, it'd best suit them to add more fire elements. Look at the elements within your home in a symbolic manner, and see what you need to change to create a more balanced emotional life. 
5. Remove Any Negative Symbolism:
From books to traffic signs, symbolism bombards us daily. In every day life, we are guided by the symbolism that surrounds us, which is enhanced even more so within our homes. An intimate environment represents an individual's fears and challenges. If you have trouble finding clarity, see if you have a lot of stuff cluttered in your home. If you have low self esteem, check to see if mirrors are hung too high, which equates to you never measuring up. If you find yourself unable to get out of the single life, do you surround yourself with single decor? I.e. single vases, single chairs, single person in pictures/art. Figure out the challenges you face on a daily basis in your life and look at the symbols the content in your home hold, to understand what changes need to be made.  
6. Maximize The Natural Light: 
Natural light can make a person much happier and more positive. You want to enhance as much natural light in a home as possible, which can be done by placing mirrors directly across from windows to help reflect the light throughout your space.

“Isabel went above and beyond what would be expected of a realtor. I was selling our family home for a uncle who was entering a nursing home. 100 years of accumulated stuff she helped me to manage. Even posting the free items on Craig's List for me. She also had a veteran's knowledge of pricing and strategy for us to get the best deal possible and identify the best potential offers and buyers. She made a very difficult task for me and my family a lot easier.” James Aiken

I am more than happy to recommend Isabel Orlandino, she has helped me buy three houses (two Single family homes, and one condo), and sell two of them. She is very knowledgeable, organized and trustworthy. I can't say enough about Isabelle's professionalism, true caring nature, and extensive knowledge/connections. She brings all these qualities to the table for her clients. Wish I could give her 10 stars! Thanks for all your help, Isabelle

Isabel helped me find a multi family for my parents 5 years ago. She was very accommodating with scheduling appointments around my hectic work schedule and was extremely helpful with finding and screening potential rental clients for the unit my parents were renting out. I will be in the market again shortly looking for myself and will once again connect with Isabel for guidance. She is my go to agent for any future purchases or sales.

I worked with Isabel on and off for the last few years. I finally purchased my home back on Aug 2016. Great experience!!! She is very professional, thoughtful and knowledgeable. She's very reliable and dependable. I've worked with other agents in the past, nothing comes close to the care I received from Isabel. I recommend her to anyone who's house hunting.

Isabel helped my husband and I find the perfect house to start our family. My husband and I were looking for a house a few months before our wedding. Isabel made it so easy and stress free. We were looking to stay in Medford and there was not too much inventory so we needed to be able to move quickly. Isabel found us a perfect size house in a great neighborhood. She was upfront and said she knew our budget and that this house was a fixer upper but for the price and neighborhood thought it was perfect for us and she was right. There was a lot of interest in the house but I think Isabel's knowledge, responsiveness, and the relationship she built with the listing agent really helped us get the house. We got the house under our budget, did the renovations, and now our house is worth double what we paid for it. We are incredibly happy with the service we received from Isabel and are in the perfect house for us!

Isabel helped my husband and I purchase our home in 2012. She was able to show us a variety of homes that met our specifications. Isabel was knowledgeable when it came to any questions we had and responded in a timely fashion. We love our home and were very happy with the support and dedication we received from Isabel while purchasing our first home.
