There’s a rapper named Schwayze and he’s who I think of every time I say the words “feng shui” (the art of interior decorating in a way that makes sense to your brains).
I’ve been saying those words a lot lately because I’m soon moving into a new office space and it’s incredibly old and outdated and I’ve been investigating ways to update it. I’m no decorator so any “system” helps immensely. Otherwise it’d be a ton of yellow and random kitty cat calendars.
Instead of choosing between butter yellow or fireworks yellow I’ve been diagramming the office space and attempting to determine how I can sit in a command position AND face my most favorable celestial animal element.
This is so obviously the way to go with interior decorating. I don’t know why I haven’t tried it before.
In all seriousness, the reputable resources are pretty much all about setting yourself up for success. You build a space that is (psychologically) comfortable for you and arresting for those who visit or work with you. The whole point (when you’re doing an office space – I can’t speak for the rest of my life) is to get a subtly amazing workspace that constantly reinforces extreme winning.
Those ancient Asians really knew their mind games.
