(#12) The Fundamentals of Feng Shui with Marina Umali

Season #1

If you've been following us, you might remember our episode on passive houses Before we embarked on this podcasting adventure, we used to host weekly live sessions on Facebook every Monday.

These sessions were called "Conversations with the Designers," where we had the privilege of interviewing industry experts. Now, on our podcast, we're continuing that same concept. In fact, during our trip down memory lane, we stumbled upon interviews that are well worth the share. 

In this episode, get ready to explore the world of Feng Shui and its profound impact on interior design.

 In recent years, we've had a few clients who insisted on incorporating the principles of Feng Shui into our designs. Naturally, we love a design challenge, so we delved into our own research and sought advice from an expert in the field.Our guest expert today is Marina Umali, a distinguished designer based in New York, specialising in the art of Feng Shui.

As designers, we're always striving to create spaces that are not only functional and aesthetically pleasing but also promote a sense of well-being. Understanding Feng Shui adds an extra dimension to our work.

During our conversation with Marina, she shares her profound knowledge of Feng Shui and how to integrate its five elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water) into our homes to cultivate positive energy and enhance our overall well-being. We delve into various aspects, such as the commanding position, vertical elements, clutter-free spaces, removing obstacles, incorporating plants, utilising colour to enhance moods, and the significance of metal.
