Part-Time Evening Classes at PDA

Feng Shui

Good Design is good Feng Shui and vice versa. Learn the basics and feel confident in creating not just aesthetic environments but spaces that are energized and inviting to all who experience them.

Feng Shui is now more than a passing curiousity. Used in one form or another in cultures across the world it speaks to many common aspects of Design. 

Charlyne’s 23 years experience and approach will focus on its basic and practical application in modern interiors. The Five Transformational theory and Feng Shui Compass (Bagua) are used to draw parallels to many design principles. The effective use of color and texture, shape and placement are deepened with Feng Shui knowledge.
