Go With the (Positive Energy) Flow

You know when you walk into a home and it just feels... good? Similar to people, homes can also emit certain energies, and we're not being juju - it's true! There's actually a word for it: Chi.


Chi is the word for Universal energy that runs through our bodies and composes everything around us. It's an ancient art that has been used for centuries to rebalance the human mind. Now, whether you believe this kind of thing or not, you can't deny that there are some spaces that make you feel good and others that simply make you want to leave as soon as you walk through the door.


According to The Spruce, "One of the basic ways to check the energy flow in your home is to imagine Chi, or energy, as water. If water were to flow into your home—starting at the main door—where would it stop or stagnate?"


You may unintentionally already have positioned the furniture in your home to emulate this "flow." It's important to be able to walk freely through a home, without major obstacles or obstructions.


And it's not just furniture placement that can contribute to Chi, it's lighting, too. Would you rather walk into a home with natural sunshine streaming through the windows, or harsh, overhead fluorescent lighting?


We recently staged a home in Dallas which provides a good example of positioning furniture and using natural light to create an inviting and comfortable space.

Bed placement is key for a master bedroom. In this home, the bed is almost tucked away off to the side in a cozy enclave so you walk into a large, open space.

From the front door to the entry seating area to the living room, the flow of where to go is clear.

This all-white kitchen is fresh, clean, and easy to navigate, straight to the dining table.
