Elegantly stylish and bang on trend!

Let the "chi" flow

Feng Shui expert Teri Garcia suggests choosing colours and a decorating style to suit the individual location of the room within the property. It’s important to consider the flow when planning the layout of your sitting room, particularly the seating order; chairs should be positioned facing a window in order to make the most of the views. Similarly, chairs and sofas should always face the door and be as far away as possible in order to increase the flow and minimise the possibility of a draft when seated.

A light bright room with plants, particularly spider plants which absorb the TV emissions, will help keep the quality of the "chi" flow and make the sitting room a much healthier environment.
