Sheron Cardin's Input...: April 2008

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.

Did I Get Lost Again or "Does Feng Shui Really Matter in Sales"?

Don't get me wrong; I know EXACTLY where I am! (if I don't, I have people who will) I'm somewhere between too much metal and not enough wood and I am on the lookout for two turtle doves, really!

How did I get here...AGAIN? Due to my deep interest in feng shui, I decided to Google Alert 'feng shui and feng shui cures' just to see what was OUT THERE and if there was something NEW I would find interesting. New is an understatement!

How far can feng shui go? How about creating good chi for your mobile phone so all your calls are GOOD calls! Yes indeed! I am still trying to find my metal and wood balance in my office...but when I am not taking on the challenges of the LARGE PICTURE, should I get a red cover for my cell with a diamond OX on it?

 

 

 

Did you know that your chance of loosing a beauty contest is greatest when your feet are facing the door while you are sleeping? (see below...this is bad feng shui) You can read why using feng shui to win a beauty contest should not be overlooked.

jinxedHow about this story -  A New York House jinxed? You be the judge...this woman who believed strongly in feng shui, was trying to sell her apartment but couldn't because the front doors were in the wrong place. "My first buyer dropped dead at the closing. The second, with contract in hand, bolted down 47 flights of stairs, never to be heard from again. Why? My building is the one New York Yankee pitcher Cory Lidle flew an airplane into, tragically crashing it five floors below my apartment where my buyer was signing our contract," wrote Boesky, the ex-wife of former Wall Street broker Ivan Boesky who was jailed for insider trading.

If that story doesn't get you to pick up the phone and call a feng shui consultant, I don't know what will! 

Oh, it doesn't stop here...the outrageous, silly, extreme, and hysterical alerts keep coming along with the real, practical, caring, sharing, information every day and my interest in not waning the least bit. I am learning to focus on one problem while enjoying the dynamics in the art of persuasion that feng shui holds on me as I keep reading. I would love to be a consultant someday but first we will see if I can get through the maze us lay persons face and the shear confusion surrounding feng shui...then to find the right educators...! Don't get me started on THAT confusing subject...I am going to trust that the best will find its way to me at the right time.

Namaste

High end sophistication is an acquired taste but once you have it, you just cannot deny the opulence and the complexity of the style… this room alone would run upwards of $30, 000 or more to put together. Don't try this at home kids! Who could… more
