A common misconception of a "sacred space" is that it is an altar or one tiny area of your home/office...which can be true! However, in actuality, our entire LIFE and the places we live can be sacred spaces.
It is not a certain interior design style! Sacred Spaces often use your favorite interior design style in combination with the elements of Feng shui to create proper energetic flow in our indoor & outdoor areas.
Feng shui is related to fortune caused by location and based mainly on the Taoist understanding of nature. Your furniture placement is key - not what style you are using. Placement creates flow which affects your success, relationships, happiness, luck, health etc.
I purchased a beach cottage in 2008 and it was fully designed incorporating Feng shui basic principles; which made it our daily "sacred space" and the amount of "religious deities" where pretty much non-existent.
