feng shui at work

our vintage buyer brought an article over to jemma about how to feng shui your desk at work, and i immediately decided my desk needed a makeover. my feng shui was all wrong… and with the beautiful weather we’re having today it felt like a good time to do some spring cleaning!

(the article is from whole living magazine)

here’s what my workspace looked like before – a cluttered mess!


to feng shui my desk i followed the instructions above as well as i could with what i have here at work.  i put my plant, dreamcatcher and buddha figurine in the back left (or top left) area, with a photo of the sunset over the pacific in the background to make it feel as zen as possible. the bottom left area has a collage of photos from my latest trip, just kids, “music we like” from amoeba (a great music reference), my little journal and peaceful accents of blue. at the top right i have photos of loved ones and notes and cards from friends at work, and at the bottom right i hung some scraps of fabric to inspire creativity.


here’s the end result:


it may not look much different but it sure feels better! now i just need to feng shui my apartment…

Good work! This makes perfect sense to me . . . only with my entire house. It has to be just “so” or I feel I cannot do my best work.

not that i know of but as long as your table is clutter free, that is the best feng shui you can ever get.

This article was super helpful! I’m moving into an apartment and this is the perfect time to de-clutter and give my space a fresh new look!

I like how when you rearranged/reorganized everything, your pictures on the left even seemed to become clearer, even though that’s basically the only thing that stayed put.
