Qi design integrates both green and feng shui elements to create a home with harmony and balance thereby reducing perceptions of stress. We achieve this by studying the clients background history and then creating that balanced home environment. On this page you will witness the design process starting from the client's wishes to our consultation to showing the finished products.

The Client

one
Todd and Lisa Moyer just recently bought a condo and don't know how to begin decorating it. They both have hectic jobs and are beginning to feel overwhelmed with both the new home and there respective jobs. They both agree that having an open floor plan is important to them.

Consultation

After a consultation it was decided that a neutral color pallete with one rich accent color would be good for the Moyer's home energy.

Final

three
The final product consisted of an open floor plan and the neutral color pallete with one rich color that acted as the accent. The kitchen and living room were all in the same area but complimented each other. The high ceilings also helped in opening up the room.

The Client

Carlos and Maria Gomez have just retired and would like to redecorate the kitchen. Maria would like to take you more cooking and needs to the space to do that. They have there grandchildren over a lot and a spacious and open kitchen is a neccessity for them.

Consultation

To give the client the spacious and open kitchen that they desire we designed a kitchen with an island. The island will give them lots of counter-top space for cooking and also open up the kitchen.

Qi Tips

The Five Feng Shui Elements

The Feng Shui elements have a strong role to play for balancing the Qi of a space or home. The Qi energy can be found in various forms identified as Wu Xing (5 Phases) - Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. Each Feng Shui element has unique properties.

Water

water
Water as in trickling fountain, can signal networking, communication, professional opportunities and wealth.

Wood

wood
Wood promotes development and creative energies. You can use wooden objects to promote motivation, inspiration and passion without overwhelming your home.

Fire

fire
The element of Fire increases enthusiasm and leadership skills. Use this element in design to encourage expressiveness, inspiration and boldness.

Earth

earth
The Earth itself has solidity and permanence to it, and the element of earth appropriately represents these qualities of stability, permanence, and home. This can be necessary in a space that is too full of movement.

Metal

metal
Since metal elements are transmitters or conduct energy, introduction of metal can generate attention and transmit energy to that area.
