This book taps into two powerful trends in American culture: a national passion for home décor and remodeling, and a growing interest in the ancient Chinese art of feng shui. In Feng Shui Before & After Stephen Skinner has written a comprehensive, practical, hands-on guide to using feng shui to make redecorating choices in any room in a house, from the kitchen to a nursery. The founder of the internationally popular magazine, Feng Shui for Modern Living, Skinner shows how rearranging furniture, a mirror, changing colors, or even hanging a wind chime can restore harmony and maximize the flow of "ch'i", or good energy, to a room. Feng Shui Before & After also explores the feng shui concepts of the "magic square," the ability to discover which sectors of a house relate best to specific areas of a homeowner's life, and the most and least fortunate directions in a room. A perfect balance between a Western demand for reinvention and a timeless Eastern art, this is an essential book for anyone searching for harmony within the walls of his or her own home.
