Feng Shui - Space, Light, Color & The Trending Forever Home

Space, Light, Color-  Feng Shui in Trending Forever Home (aging-in-place)


With forethought, it is not difficult to include home automation, maximize space, and bring in a cohesive design to the forever home. That is  what you will see around Asheville  more and more these days. 

Possibly our clients have taken note to and  enjoy reading Laura Cerano’s  posts with ideas that link colors, shapes, and items to functions. The idea of providing a structure and/or framework for thinking about a living space in something other than utilitarian terms has broad appeal.

Cohesive Design

Lately, at least here in the Asheville area,  it seems that people who desire to live independently at home have been thinking more and more about “aging-in-place” in terms of design.  How can space, light and color maximize space and contribute a cohesive design within a “forever home”?  That is a question that seems to be popping up more and more these days. 

Enter  an ancient way of thinking about our relationships to space and elements and a focus on the movement of energy through each room. Feng Shui is that ancient plan with longstanding appeal.

Minimize Clutter

“Minimize clutter!” That is one of the first things experts in aging-in-place field will tell you. In fact, Certified Aging in Place Specialists (CAPS)  emphasize carefully arranging furniture, removing obstacles and improving traffic flow.  And, like aficionados of old, today’s’ experts  recognize the beneficial affect of  light in making areas come alive and seem more spacious. In creating spaces for a forever home,   think about the activities happening in each room.
