Chinese New Year Decorating

It's the Chinese New Year, and, thus, a good day for Feng Shui. Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese decorating approach -- a whole way of thinking and setting up a home or an office or any space. It's designed to help achieve peace and order, and to use colors and furniture placement and natural things like sunlight, wind and water to make a home an attractive and inviting place. Outside, flowers make everything fresh-looking and create ?curb appeal.? Inside, simplicity and neatness are of the first order. Clutter is a distraction and drains energy called "Chi." Decorate with peaceful natural colors and capture the sounds of nature with wind chimes, fountains and waterfalls. Finally, Feng Shui calls for plenty of light; both natural and well-placed incandescent. There are lots of Feng Shui books at libraries and bookstores. Take a look. And that's the On The House tip for today.
