Interior Design: What Does Having a Sacred Space Mean?

Sacred Spaces.
 
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. 
So you can have Buddha in one corner (if that's your preference) and a bouquet of fresh flowers in your favorite modern vase which can also be considered "sacred". It's things that you truly love and that are in proper placement that create a feeling of home, comfort and serenity.
Six Tips to Begin Implementing the Feeling of a Sacred Space:
  • Eliminate clutter.
  • Keep your toilet lid down.
  • Get two nightstands.
  • Try not to work with your back to a door.
  • Get plants.
  • Fix what's broken or eliminate.
Happy decorating!
