Choosing a good Feng Shui apartment: Yin-Yang lesson

Contemporary Dark Wood CabinetryI recently helped a client chose an apartment in a newly built five story building in Cambridge.  I was shown three beautiful luxury apartments that were similar in size and design so on the surface there were no obvious differences between them.  But in the end, there was one clear choice.  Here are some of the more subtle things I consider when analyzing a feng shui apartment qualities.

I rejected the first apartment right away because the electromagnetic radiation reading was too high. The electrical panel was in the bedroom (an unusual place) and having an elevated EMR for 8 hours while sleeping is just not a great idea.

The second apartment one was on the fourth floor overlooking a courtyard. The design elements were gorgeous: dark contemporary kitchen cabinets contrasted by light granite counter with a matching dark hardwood floor and sleek gray accent walls.

Everything looked beautiful, but dark. The apartment had windows facing the NW and in the middle of the day there was very little sunlight. I know that a good amount of light is important for people to feel balanced. If there is not enough natural light we start feeling depressed and uninspired. People feel best when there is a balance of yin and yang. In this case, a balance between dark and light.

The last apartment was on the fifth floor and also faced the NW. It had the same beautiful dark wood floors and kitchen cabinets, but the accent walls were lighter.  Being on the top floor opened up much more sunlight and a view of the sky over the opposite side of the building.  The darker interior was balanced by plenty of light making it the winner. My client agreed, remarking that this last unit just “felt better” than the others.
