What exactly is Feng Shui and how important is it in Interior decorating and design?
Feng shui is a 3,000 year old form of ancient Chinese art and science that seeks to balance the energies of any given space to assure health and good fortune for the people inhabiting it. The Chinese meaning of Feng is wind and shui means water. Therefore the study and practice of Feng Shui is not purely for decorating aesthetics but for health and positive psychological feeling.
This online course aims to educate the learner on Feng Shui elements and how these various, ancient principles can be used in modern design and decorating to create more pleasing and harmonious interiors. This program is ideal for aspiring and experienced interior decorators and designers looking to include Feng Shui in their skill portfolio.
