Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As defined by Brown, Feng Shui is "a complex integrated system of theory and practice" based on the "underlying premise that everything in your surroundings" can enhance or block energies. Developed by the Chinese over 4000 years ago, this discipline is becoming increasingly popular in the Western world as a new approach to interior design. Brown and Shurety take a similar approach to the subject, providing well-illustrated guides to the principles of Feng Shui and its use in interior design. With its charts and sample room layouts showing how to apply the principles, however, Brown's book is more accessible. Webster takes a more helpful-hints approach, examining the house as a whole and then room by room while offering a list of Feng Shui tips for achieving a desired effect. For a basic, overall approach, Brown's book is the best, although each of these is useful if there is a strong interest in this design approach.

For thousands of years, people in the East have been using feng shui to design homes and offices. Over the past decade, more and more people in the West have been doing the same thing, often calling in an expensive expert only to be told that all they need to do is hang a mirror in one of the rooms.
With 101 Feng Shui Tips for the Home by well-known authority Richard Webster, Llewellyn is once again able to provide you with a simple, direct source that gives you the basic theory of how feng shui works then shows you how to do it yourself. You may want to follow the recommendations for rearranging your furniture or simply adding a mirror or fountain to what you already have. All of the methods needed to bring balance to your home and life are right in the pages of this book!
The tips are fun and easy to use. For example, the foot of The tips are fun and easy to use. For example, the foot of your bed should not directly face the door. If the front door is made of more than one panel, make sure they are of equal sizes in order to create harmony and balance. Bathroom and toilet doors should be kept closed. All of these help to allow the ch'i to flow freely through the home. This will bring balance and peace. It will let you sleep better and be happier. And when you do this, your life and health improve.
As you can see, I'm very excited about feng shui. It's a system which really makes a difference and which anyone can use. I sincerely hope you will give it a try. Think of being happier, more peaceful, more rested and having more energy. The secret to this lies behind the doors of feng shui. And with this book, those doors are open for you.
