So say practitioners of Feng Shui, the ancient Eastern metaphysical science that says the positioning of furniture, color schemes and even particular decor can directly influence the comfort of your surroundings and your overall well-being.
Live flowers, in particular, are believed to bring strong healing energy and good luck to your home. What a wonderful excuse for a standing weekly order from Flowers by Tony Brewer!
Feng Shui has its roots in China, where it was used as far back as 3,000 years ago largely to orient tombs, important structures and homes in a way believed to promote good fortune and success.
In modern times, many people continue to use special Feng Shui grids and compasses to map distinct areas of a building and plan decor that promotes good “chi” – or energy.
Meticulously arranging your house to align with Feng Shui theories may not be practical for you. But adding a fresh-cut flower arrangement by the master florists at our Ritz-Carlton Buckhead boutique is a fast, fragrant way to add a little good chi to your living space! Try these flowers for some fresh-cut Feng Shui :
Peony: These playful perennials have long been used in Feng Shui to influence stronger loving relationships. Try these blossoms in pink or red – a symbol of passion and emotion – to kindle romance and encourage refreshed love. Perfect for a bedroom or even a den.
Orchids: Renowned for their delicately abstract beauty, these refined blossoms offer a double-shot of Feng Shui goodness. Most classically associated with the color purple, the Feng Shui shade representing faith, they’re also believed to represent the quest for perfection and encourage abundance. A great pick me up!
Narcissus or Daffodil: This largely spring-blossoming flower is particularly powerful in white – a color affiliated with strength in Feng Shui culture. Overall, these cheery blooms are believed to encourage the “flowering” of one’s career. Sounds like the perfect choice for a home office!
Chrysanthemum: According to Feng Shui, this popular flower brings something we could all use – a life of ease and balance. Try blossoms with an accent flower in blue – a color affiliated with relaxation – for an extra shot of peace and serenity in your home.
Whether you subscribe to Feng Shui properties or not, adding a breathtaking arrangement of fresh-cut flowers is a quick way to bring beauty, elegance and a little bit of spring freshness to your home year-round!
