Let Feng Shui bring you good luck, and these seven designs are not afraid of taboos

Japanese architect Iri Tomo said: "It is impossible to create a comfortable home without designing even the things that are invisible to the naked eye."

(Japanese architectYilizhi 1959Born in Okinawa,GraduatedTokyoart universityGraduate School of Fine Artsarchitecture)

Feng shui is the invisible design specification. The word "feng shui" first appeared in "The Burial Sutra": "gasIf it rides on the wind, it will disperse; if it is bounded by water, it will stop. The ancients said that when people gather, they will not disperse, and when they move, they will stop. Therefore, it is called Feng Shui. "Ancient Feng Shui was mostly used fortownandvillagesite selection, andpalaceconstruction, later developed into findingfuneralterrain.Feng shui isQinChineseBeginning with the folkAlchemyconnect withfive artsofLife,predict, phases are all related, and it is also said that the basic composition comes from "I Ching"ofhexagram, divided into janitor, main, and stoveYangzhaiPhysiognomy and seeingghost houseThe current name of the phase method and so onmetaphysicsNumber of spellsoffolk beliefs.(Partially taken from Wikipedia)

▲Design:Student work by Carolyn Ciafardoni

As the saying goes, "One fate, two fortunes, and three feng shui."Going with the wind and flowing water is Feng Shui. "Wind" represents the magnetic field, while "water" represents flow and change, reminding people that they should comply with the conditions of nature instead of going against it, so that they can follow the trend and become a good house.Feng Shui is not just a superstition, it is a theory confirmed through the philosophy of nature and practical applications. Many taboos in Feng Shui can actually be changed through layout changes, furnishings, accessories, etc.Space and Feng Shui can be connected together at the same time, making people's stay comfortable and satisfying.

Top ten Feng Shui taboos:

Tianyu Street  Design/Photo: B-STUDIO

one,   Good luck to the bright hall and darkroom

The living room is a space for entertaining relatives, friends, and guests. It is also an area where the family can gather together to relax and talk. Therefore, Feng Shui pursues bright halls and dark rooms. Translucent lighting can make people feel the energy as soon as they enter, and a good aura can also Gather wealth. The bedroom is a private space for rest, and the light should be soft and dim. You can use curtains with strong blackout properties to enhance privacy, relax the mind, reduce the impact of light pollution, and avoid light interfering with sleep.

two,   Bring ventilation and wealth together

The ventilation of the space represents wealth in Feng Shui. If the indoor air is ventilated, the body will be refreshed and the wealth will be smooth. When the living room has transparent lighting, at the same timemoving airflowSmooth, making it difficult for bad energy to accumulate and ushering in good magnetic field luck.

3. The door should not face the stairs, kitchen, toilet, or corridor.

1. The main door should not be facing the stairs:

In Feng Shui, stairs are spaces for receiving and sending Qi. The best position is to place the stairs against the wall, and it is taboo to place them in the middle. This is equivalent to dividing the home into two, which can lead to disharmony between the couple and even quarrels. Another situation is when the stairs are facing the door, health problems will occur.

2. Don’t see the kitchen through the front door:

As soon as the door is opened, you will see bad luck in the restaurant and kitchen.The kitchen is regarded as the treasury of the home in Feng Shui, so opening the door and seeing the kitchen is a Feng Shui taboo for "leaking wealth".

3. Avoid facing the toilet:

The toilet is an area that generates filthy gas, so the door cannot face the toilet, and the bedroom door and toilet door cannot face each other.

4.The door faces the corridor and the Heart Piercer:

As soon as you enter the door, you will see that the corridor is in the pattern of a sword through the heart. The longer the corridor, the more detrimental it is to the home. It is also taboo to have a layout like a hotel corridor with several rooms connected. It is easy for affairs and elopements to occur, and all kinds of troubles at home will be constant.

5. The door directly faces the window, back door, and floor-to-ceiling windows:

The main door is facing the window, back door, floor-to-ceiling windows, etc. The "qi" will escape from the other door and window as soon as you enter the door, so it is not easy to collect the Qi and make money. You can set up an entrance cabinet or screen in front of the door to improve this feng shui deficiency.

6. The door is exposed to great disadvantages:

Chongqing Li Zhai

Mirrors have the function of exorcising evil and avoiding evil, and can reflect various auras. Therefore, when you open the door and see the mirror, it will reflect your own auspiciousness, because such a design can easily cause shock if the lighting is dim.

Four,   The taboo on doors is "door to door". Each door in the houseCannot be relative:

"Xiangshumen" and "Douguosha" are the clashes between two gates facing each other, which can easily lead to disputes.

5. The bathroom and toilet are at the end of the corridor:

The bathroom and toilet cannot be installed at the end of the corridor in the house, but should be installed next to the corridor.

6. Do not place the bathroom in the middle of the palace:

Feng shui can divide the layout of the home into "nine palaces".The bathroom and toilet in the house should not be placed in the "middle palace" of the house. Because the middle palace is the heart of the family, it cannot bePlacing a dirty space like the bathroom above will bring health concerns to your family.

7. The kitchen and bathroom doors are connected:

If the toilet door is adjacent to the kitchen door, the toilet door should be closed at all times to prevent the filthy air from flowing out. If the bathroom door and the kitchen door are opposite to each other, they are incompatible with water and fire. It is best to stagger them or cover them with door curtains.

8. Be careful with kitchen stoves:

If a stove is installed between the refrigerator and the sink (two water and one fire) or the sink is between the stove and a microwave oven, electric pot, oven, etc. (two fires and one water), the cooking process will not be smooth, and the heat source of the appliance will also cause influence, resulting in poor performance of the refrigerator. Moreover, the kitchen stove represents fire, and the refrigerator and sink represent water. Feng Shui considers the two to be incompatible, so avoid eliminating evil spirits.

9. Mirrors add space energy:

 Mirrors are a commonly used option in interior design to increase space, using the principle of refraction to enlarge the space. The mirror has the function of doubling energy in Feng Shui, and also has the function of exorcising evil spirits and avoiding evil. However, avoid hanging mirrors behind the sofa, and do not point the mirror toward the bed or room door to avoid being frightened by refraction.

Decorilla designer, Mladen C.

10. It’s hard to sleep well with a beam at the head of the bed :

Beams on the bed are a taboo in Feng Shui. From a psychological point of view, beams and columns will create an invisible sense of oppression, which can easily affect sleep. You can change the position of the bed, or use interior design to hide the beams and columns.

"Don't" exaggerate and misinterpret Feng Shui taboos, "Don't" take literal meanings, "Don't" listen to nonsense, "there is no" perfect Feng Shui, follow the three no-one principles of home "Feng Shui", and use design and furnishings to resolve various taboos. You can create a good Feng Shui house that seeks good luck and avoids bad luck!

Wabi-sabi allows you to find happiness, 6 ways to live a simple life

"Minimalism" is not about simplifying for the sake of simplifying.

Instead, try your best to keep the things you cherish,

Give it enough time and space,

Don't let other things interfere with your thoughts and concentration.

"The Less You Have, the Happier You Are: The Minimalist Way to Get Rid of Material Constraints and Renew Your Life"

The More of Less: Finding the Life You Want Under Everything You Own


Joshua. Baker  Follow the original author: Joshua Becker


"Wabi-sabi" is a Taoist religion that originated in the Song Dynasty of China (AD960-1279), and later introduced into Zen Buddhism. Initially, "Wabi-sabi" was a simple and restrained aesthetic method. "The beauty of simplicity" is exactly what "wabi" (wabiwabi) means, and "silence" (solitudesabi) means "the impermanence of all things in life and the passage of time", which together form Japan's unique culture, philosophy and aesthetics.

Characteristics of wabi-sabi:


  1. Gray and white, earth tones, the years are quiet and peaceful

Quiet life in restrained neutral colors


In wabi-sabi aesthetics, it is common to use earth tones or beige as the main colors to create a peaceful and comfortable atmosphere. If you want to get started with wabi-sabi design, you can consider the color of the ceiling, walls, and floors as the first step, because painting and lacquer are the first choices that are easiest to change the atmosphere of your home and are more budget-friendly. The difference between wabi-sabi and minimalism is that in addition to both relatively neutral colors, wabi-sabi also adds undecorated materials to create a natural sense of the passage of time, such as: water mold, imitation water mold paint, Materials such as diatomaceous earth can give the wall a hand-brushed texture, creating one of the elements of wabi-sabi aesthetics through imperfect textures.

2.Return to original materials, comfortable and natural

Chaozhou Qiu Zhai  Design/Photo: B-STUDIO

Nature’s materials return to purity


One of the essences of wabi-sabi aesthetics is to embellish raw, unmodified materials into designs, allowing the purity of nature to be integrated into life. Therefore, logs, rattan, linen, bamboo, stone, etc. are all common materials. Among them, the original beauty of logs best reflects the Zen spirit of Japanese style. In addition, when choosing indoor plants, you can also choose to use dead wood and dried flowers and plants as decorations to add a comfortable and innocent atmosphere to the space.

3. Leave the space blank, quiet and comfortable

Don’t fill the environment, I say:"To the Ultimate"


When the field is left blank, more attention can be focused on enjoying and experiencing life. There are no too many gorgeous decorations or unnecessary furnishings. You just need to focus on feeling the beauty of life. This is also the most important spirit of wabi-sabi.

4. Warm lighting, rendering wabi-sabi


Warm light blends into the space


Light is the architect of space, a mobile and diverse element. In wabi-sabi design, the unmodified cement floor and natural hand-painted walls, combined with neutral colors, can easily give the space a sense of quiet distance. At this time, the design of light is very important. The warm light embellishes the hazy and warm atmosphere in the house, balancing other elements. The understated stillness of the wabi-sabi element.

5.Imperfection, asymmetry, irregularity

Design:Hema Interiors Photo:K-Studio

Accept the essence and be calm


Wabi-sabi allows people to embrace everything that is imperfect, rather than blindly pursuing things that are inappropriate or unnecessary. Therefore, irregular and asymmetrical ornaments or designs can often be seen in wabi-sabi designs.

Design:Anthology Creative Studio

Design: Betsy Brown

6. Handmade decorations to show style

Architect:Maria Marina, Designer:Maria Marina

Unique beauty and humanistic atmosphere


Antiques, second-hand decorations, and handmade crafts with traces of time can all fully demonstrate the wabi-sabi aesthetics. In terms of handicrafts, they are mostly: ceramics, fabrics, utensils, etc. The time-characterized sense of the objects brings a sense of quiet reality into the house, rather than a flawless sense of alienation.

Wabi-sabi is a life attitude and philosophy that needs to be learned in this busy and chaotic life. Allow yourself to start from "Less is more"Less is more" to find more original intentions and protect more happy moments.

Lighting and ventilation have many benefits, six designs to easily fight the epidemic

Le CorbusierLe CorbusierBelieve that light and air have medicinal properties.

(Le CorbusierHe is the father of modern architecture, a Swiss and French architect, interior designer, sculptor and painter.20One of the most important architects of the century.)

Kirby (Le Corbusier, 1887-1965)

since2019The new coronavirus has spread across the world since the beginning of the year, and as of2022Year5The month has passed5Hundreds of millions of people have been infected, and many countries have also been deeply affected by this epidemic. People, lives, jobs, economies, etc. have all been affected. Seeing that this war "epidemic" does not know when it will subside, we can only learn from this. Learning gradually coexists with the virus. The road to fighting the "epidemic" is still far away. How can we fight against the unpredictable virus war with peace of mind and ease? What designs can help fight the epidemic? The following six home anti-epidemic designs are provided to provide a comfortable living environment while resisting the virus.

1. Ventilation entrance, cloakroom

▲Architecture,Visualization,Interior Design

The entrance is the first area into the home, so the air permeability in this area will also affect the entire home. If the air circulation is poor, it may cause the accumulation of bacteria and viruses. In addition, some daily clothes do not need regular cleaning, such as thicker coats, guest coats, bags, etc. These are very suitable to be placed in the entrance cloakroom to reduce the risk of bringing bacteria and viruses into the home. risk.

2. Bright and open plan

Tianyu Street  Design/Photo: B-STUDIO

Light helps relax the body and mind and improves immunity to fight viruses. Therefore, bright lighting can keep the body and mind in a healthy state. For example, sunlight can promote the production of vitamin D in the body, and when sunlight enters our brain through the optic nerve, it can increase people's serotonin, thus giving people a sense of satisfaction and improving their mood. On the contrary, if you are in a state of insufficient sunlight exposure for a long time, you are likely to feel depressed or even depressed, and develop mental illness. Therefore, the light source in the home is also one of the important elements in the fight against the epidemic. Open spaces or highly permeable partition materials can help improve the lighting in the home.

(According to a health magazine article, White House epidemic prevention adviser Anthony Fauci once publicly stated that a lack of vitamin D will affect the body’s ability to resist infection.)

3. Imitation water mold paint, diatomaceous earth, celite, resistant to scrubbing

Qingshui Fu  Design/Photo: B-STUDIO

The first and most important thing to fight against the epidemic is cleaning and disinfection. Therefore, the materials of various furniture items at home are very important. For example, you can choose imitation water mold paint or diatomaceous earth for walls, which are resistant to cleaning and are not easy to breed bacteria and viruses. Or you can choose celite, which is also wear-resistant and easy to clean, helping with anti-epidemic disinfection procedures. In addition, you can also choose paints with antibacterial effects, such as some manufacturers offering antibacterial children's paints. These all help to improve the attachment of bacteria and viruses in the air to your home.


4. Filtration, dehumidification, and clean ventilation 

glory star  Design/Photo: B-STUDIO

Some houses have insufficient air circulation due to the distance between the buildings or their orientation. At this time, you can consider installing an indoor air-conditioning ventilator, which can help filter out bad substances and bacteria and viruses in the air, and help regulate humidity. . Because if the humidity is too high, the number of mites and mold will increase, while if the humidity is too low, viruses and bacteria will increase. Therefore, humidity regulation is also a very important key to fighting the epidemic.

5. Antibacterial material, nano silver ions

glory star  Design/Photo: B-STUDIO

According to a study in the New England Journal of Medicine, the COVID-19 virus can survive on plastic and steel materials for up to 72 hours. (SARS-CoV-2 was more stable on plastic and stainless steel than on copper and cardboard, and viable virus was detected up to 72 hours after application to these surfaces.)( The NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL of MEDICIN)

Therefore, the materials of household products can also be carefully selected to facilitate the fight against the epidemic. Nowadays, many manufacturers have launched products with antibacterial materials, such as toilets, tiles, silver ion bedding, antibacterial leather fabrics, etc. These have been specially processed and are not easy for bacteria and viruses to adhere, so they are very suitable for use at home. .

6. Zero-contact design, AI smart home appliances

Tianyu Street  Design/Photo: B-STUDIO

In addition to droplets, the new coronavirus is transmitted through droplets. The virus can also attach to doorknobs, switches, etc. Therefore, in addition to washing hands and disinfecting frequently, you should try to minimize touching objects to prevent the virus from entering the eyes, mouth, and nose through your hands and causing infection. Smart sensor lights, automatic doors, proximity cards, etc. can all reduce the risk of contact infection.

It is not easy to fight the epidemic during the period. We are always on tenterhooks when we are outside. There are too many factors that are beyond our control. We can only go out as little as possible to reduce the risk of infection. Therefore, being able to relax and fight the epidemic at home is something we can easily control. Let us fight the epidemic comfortably together. Get through the tough times.

5 options for adequate lighting to bring new life to your home, as if you are buying a new home

"Let the light do the design" is a famous saying of the Chinese architect Ieoh Ming Pei.

picture/AP file photo

Daylighting refers to the introduction of natural light from the outdoors in order to adjust the indoor environment of a building. andventilationAll are necessary behaviors to maintain a hygienic and comfortable indoor environment. Building regulations in various countries often include provisions related to lighting. (Extracted from Wikipedia)

Lighting is a very important indicator when buying a house or doing interior design planning. However, due to factors such as partitions, house type, and orientation, the lighting effect is often poor. Therefore, if the designer cannot use light to combine the design, then the life of the home and the meaning of the design will be lost. In fact, through some changes, the shortcomings in lighting can be improved.

1. Patio/Skylights to increase natural light sources

Photo:David Foessel

There are many long houses or open-air buildings that often have no windows to the outside or are surrounded by buildings, which makes it impossible to use natural light sources in some areas of the house. Therefore, when possible, add patios or skylights to let in natural lighting. Inside the house, it makes the originally dark house bright and comfortable. At the same time, it can also circulate the air flow in the house and improve the quality of fresh indoor air.

▲Visualizer: Berga&Gonzalez

2. Front/rear balcony to bring the light source closer

▲Design: B-STUDIO Qingshuifu

The balcony functions of traditional homes are often equipped with clothes drying, debris storage and storage, and even garbage storage. However, in fact, these may affect indoor ventilation and lighting, and there are also safety considerations for debris falling. Therefore, the traditional iron railings on the balcony can be changed into invisible iron windows, allowing more natural light sources to penetrate. Or the indoor windows and walls adjacent to the balcony can be changed to large floor-to-ceiling windows or glass windows, so that the light source can be introduced into the room through high-permeability glass materials, improving the lighting blocked by the balcony space.

3. Open space, shared light source

▲Photo: The Spruce Christopher Lee

Complete walls or partitions may block the penetration of light sources. Therefore, when lighting is limited, you can consider discarding unnecessary load-bearing walls and partitions and use open spaces to increase light sources. fluidity. If you want to increase spatial separation, you can choose glass materials or grilles to replace complete walls or partitions. At the same time, the penetration of light sources will be maintained, and the visual sense of space will be wider.

4.Mobile sliding door, flexible space light source

▲Design: B-STUDIOAvenue of Stars  

When you want to have clear divisions in public areas and be flexible without blocking daylight, you can choose to use highly maneuverable grilles or glass sliding doors. Sliding doors can maintain the privacy flexibility of space separation, and also allow light sources to be introduced into the open space when you want to have sufficient lighting. This option allows the light source to shine in the area through glass or grille sliding doors, allowing you to enjoy an independent and comfortable living space.

5. Half wall, see-through wall, low furniture, do not block the light source

If there is no way to significantly change the space or partitions, or if the area is small and space is a consideration, you may wish to plan a half-height or see-through TV wall, and use low-height desks, cabinets, etc. for furniture selection, such as Islands, storage cabinets, and bookcases can be placed at a height that does not block the light, so that the light source can spread freely in every corner of the area. Use natural light to create a relaxing atmosphere in your home.

The little secrets between the three grilles allow you to easily use light and shadow to reveal the Japanese Zen feel

Qingsongju Photo: B-STUDIO

Grille is a common design in Japanese style, which is made of different raw materials arranged in horizontal or straight strips. asQingsongjuThe designer uses a large number of grilles on the periphery to diffuse the incoming light from different angles. Together with the staggered dark and light wood pieces inside, the changes in light and shadow create a calm and comfortable space. The grille design can not only separate the space, but also effectively introduce natural light, which can not only maintain privacy, but also increase the brightness of the overall space. The color, material, spacing, arrangement direction, etc. of the grilles can all form different styles, and the effects can be changed according to personal preferences. It is the choice of many people these days.



Improving the visual spaciousness in a limited space is a common desire in interior design. Therefore, the spacing between grilles increases the sense of space expansion. Compared with old screens or complete walls, grilles not only create space The separation also improves the space performance a lot. Grilles can simultaneously maintain the privacy of the space and increase the freshness of the air, making the air in the separated areas less dull and reducing energy waste. This is also one of the indicators of energy saving and carbon reduction in green and environmentally friendly design. Therefore, It's a great design.

1. Use the grille at the entrance


The design of the grille adds a soft feeling to the space. It is no longer as rigid and cold as the previous entrance hall or screen design, but adds a sense of vastness and ease in the space.

2. Grille used on door panels

5 house lighting tricks secretly hidden by designers

1. Open layout design to increase light transparency

In space planning, the places where natural light can shine are limited. If solid walls are used to separate areas, light will not easily penetrate into the interior, which will make the space bright and bright.

If you want to maintain a little privacy, you can also usefrosted glassScreens or sliding doors made of glass and Changhong glass can not only separate spaces and create invisible boundaries, but also create differences in bright light, giving the overall space a more sense of design.


4. Mirror and reflective materials reflect light to increase brightness

In addition to introducing natural light, the selection of building materials and furniture can also effectively increase the brightness of the space. The use of reflective materials, such as glass, mirrors, marble, metal, etc., can not only effectively increase the brightness, but also make the space brighter. There is lightdiffusionThe effect makes the overall space look more stylish.


5. Use light colors with contrasting colors to create a sense of brightness that is not depressing.

How to design indoor ventilation? You must know the principle of air convection to plan a comfortable and ventilated house


When designing, decorating and planning a space, people often focus on the purchase of furniture or the arrangement of the layout. However, indoor air quality is also an invisible key to the homeowner’s life and physical and mental health. Taiwan's summers are hot and humid. If indoor ventilation planning is not perfect, moisture will easily accumulate. The hot high temperatures will also gradually increase the electricity bill. Only by understanding the correct air convection principles and indoor ventilation techniques can you plan a comfortable indoor space. This article will discuss the principles of air convection and the principles of indoor ventilation design.


What is the principle of air convection?

Air is an insulator and cannot transfer heat energy. However, if part of the air is heated and the temperature rises, it expands and rises upward, creating a convection phenomenon like water flow. When the air is heated and rises, the surrounding cold air fills the gap, forming daily wind. Opening doors and windows for a long time, using the principle of hot air rising and cold air falling to circulate the air, the indoor temperature will also flow and adjust together, which is the simplest and most effective way to ventilate the indoor environment.




Indoor ventilation design principles

1. Set up more than two air outlets. If the room is too small, mechanical ventilation can be used.

Poor space ventilation can easily lead to stale air circulation, and a stuffy environment not only affects your mood and quality of life, but also greatly affects your physical condition.

There are two ways to increase indoor ventilation:

1. Natural ventilation

The indoor space must have more than two vents (including air outlets and air inlets), which can be windows, doors or air holes, etc., so as to allow air convection. You can choose sliding windows for windows. The window area is larger, and the window opening angle can be used to adjust the air volume to be introduced. It is the simplest and most effective ventilation method.

2. Mechanical ventilation

If the building spacing is narrow or located in a confined space, and the number of air outlets that can be opened is limited, mechanical ventilation can be used to assist indoor ventilation through different machines and equipment, and can also achieve good ventilation effects. For example, kitchens and bathrooms can Installing extraction and exhaust fans can not only promote air circulation, but also remove moisture and odors. Air conditioners or air purifiers can be installed in confined spaces to circulate the air and maintain quality.


2. Be familiar with the geographical environment and open windows in the direction facing the wind.

When setting up external windows, it is necessary to understand the geographical environment of the building location and the direction of the wind in advance. As far as Taiwan is concerned, the south wind and southwest monsoon prevail in spring and summer, and the north wind and northeast monsoon prevail in autumn and winter. Therefore, the orientation of the windows can be considered to face the south. Not only can it attract the cool south wind in summer, but it can also block the winter wind. The cold north wind.




3. Set up skylights and transoms to discharge hot air outside

In a wider space, the design of skylights can be used to increase air flow. The principle of hot air rising and cold air falling moving along the vertical space will cause strong air convection, which is the so-called chimney effect. If there is no need to install a skylight, you can also install a transom window at a higher position on the wall to achieve the same convection effect.


4. Leave excess space, atrium, terrace, open balcony

In the design of the building, leaving fixed proportions and planning open spaces such as courtyards, terraces, atriums or balconies not only have significant convection and cooling effects, but also reduce the use of air-conditioning equipment, reduce electricity bills, and install floor-to-ceiling The design of the sliding door can also introduce a large amount of outdoor air, and the ventilation effect is excellent.
