Sheron Cardin's Input...: November 2007

I have been an interior designer for over 27 years and I have always taught my clients the principles I used while decorating their home so they may enjoy decorating too. The home staging trend in residential real estate is a great way to reach more people every day and what I enjoy the most is they are learning the basics of good design through staging. It is my dream for every person to know the joy and pride of living in a decorated home.

Feng Shui Tip #1 Sharing - Crown Molding

Don't get me wrong...I am about as far from being an expert in feng shui as the next person, but I have a tendency to apply what I learn and then I want share it with everyone...so if you are interested, I will be posting some of the easy to remember feng shui tips that are helping me with my Feng Shui Journal series. I figure in about 30 years I may actually get the hang of it but right now I am working on developing my feng shui eyes and sharing helps me hang onto it.

For Feng Shui Eyes: Crown molding brings the eye up high, which raises everyone's Chi. It also enhances your reputation and leaves everyone feeling better, especially if you have lots of molding in the room found in your fame sector. *** Below is the Ba gua and you need to place it over the floor plan of your home with your front door at the bottom of the Ba gua...stretch it out to fit. The Fame Sector is the red square. In my home it is the kitchen so adding crown molding to the top of my cabinets would be the thing to do.

So this is why crown molding is so desirable, it makes people feel better! Who knew? We knew but did we know why? Not really.

Adding crown molding will add drama to any room and increase the perceived value of any home.

Look at these photo's (selected at random from Google Images) and pay close attention to where your eyes are drawn first and then imagine how it would feel to be standing in that room. (I know the photo's are small but give it a try anyway...) Do those rooms make you feel better just by looking at them? They do me!

Do you remember in school the classmates that used to outline all their coloring book pictures before they started coloring them in? Were you one of those kids? I was. They always looked better than everyone else's. That is what crown molding does for a room, it not only frames a room and points out its' assets but it brings our eyes up and makes us feel better...raising our Chi.

This Old House has the best do it yourself instructions for installing crown molding. (Now you can tell your clients crown molding increases good Chi)

Namaste
