Feng Shui Style
The Asian Art of Gracious LivingeBook - 2012
With over 200 photos this Asian design book showcases the feng shui techniques instrumental in some of the world's most spectacular structures. Feng Shui Style demonstrates clearly that ancient Chinese principles of feng shui are not just compatible with good architectural and interior design-but that the two may be carefully engineered to be mutually supportive on many different levels. Presented here are some of the most interesting and beautiful homes and interiors designed along feng shui principles in both Asia and the West to enhance the wellbeing and prosperity of those who use them. The feng shui techniques covered include simple Eight Mansion feng shui, the placement of Water Dragons, interior and exterior furnishings and alignments, and the calculation of intricate Flying Star charts. Examples range from the grand 19th century mansion belonging to one of the last and richest mandarins of Imperial China, via the timeless Balinese luxury of Begawan Giri, to the latest and most exciting Philippe Starck designed environments in London, each showing how the timeless concepts and techniques of feng shui are used to enrich, harmonize, and stimulate.
