  • FENG SHUI

    "Feng Shui is no hocus pocus, it is pure science"

    Master Yap Boh Chu

    The ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui is the study and analysis of the interaction between people, buildings and their environment. It allows for many improvements to be made in several personal life aspects by modifying living, working and sharing environments.

     

    It is the harmonious balance of space and energy through the most suitable allocation of rooms and the arrangement of furniture and objects. To create a harmonious space yin and yang energy want to be equally present and the five elements fire, earth, metal, water and wood nurture each other. Colors, materials and shapes within a space can lead to a very significant enrichment in one’s personal and/or professional life.

  • FENG SHUI WELLNESS DESIGN©

     

    My approach to FENG SHUI WELLNESS DESIGN© provides a balanced combination of

     

    the classic Chinese FENG SHUI practice,

    Western INTERIOR DESIGN principles

    & WELLNESS features

     

    The ancient Chinese geomantic practice of FENG SHUI is the study and analysis of the interaction between people, buildings and their environment. It is the harmonious balance of space and energy through the most suitable allocation of rooms and the arrangement of furniture and objects.Various FENG SHUI schools are applied as well as the 3 Feng Shui principles of QI, Yin & Yang and the Five elements Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood.

     

    The DESIGN element includes ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN, INTERIOR DESIGN and LANDSCAPING DESIGN.

    The creation of a prosperous Feng Shui environment starts with the exterior space planning of the land to lay the ground for the ideal positioning of buildings, walkways and water features; followed by the interior space planning of the buildings and fine tuned by Interior Design principles which address the room layout, furniture, accessories, materials, colors, patterns and shapes, lighting, flooring and drapes to support the positive energy flow.

     

    The WELLNESS aspect is addressed applying the SECOND NATURE© concept - a unique system introduced by SO FENG SHUI DESIGN for measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and well-being through the human senses sight, sound, smell, touch, familiarity, comfort and safety.

    The measuring of electric radiation, magnetic fields and radio frequency waves as well as noise levels completes this all-round approach to a total Wellness concept.

     

     

  • BENEFITS

     

    What's in it for you? A total WELLNESS project solution!

     

    The classic FENG SHUI consultation provides the analysis of the space in question with general recommendations on positioning of rooms/furniture and sometimes remedies to improve less beneficial areas.

     

    The wider FENG SHUI WELLNESS DESIGN© approach enriches the classical Feng Shui consultation with a detailed and contemporary visual guideline including health and well-being features that is easy to incorporate into any environmental project.

     

    The output is a unique handbook for Architects, Interior Designers and corporate entities including recommendations on colors, shapes and materials as well as proposals for actual Feng Shui friendly products and Wellness home products imported from the most prestigious European brands to the most cost effective locally sourced solutions.

  • ABOUT

     

    Regarded as the first and only FENG SHUI WELLNESS DESIGNER©, my expertise and passion are to combine the three elements FENG SHUI, INTERIOR DESIGN and WELLNESS to create spaces that are in harmony with their users.

    Accreditation in traditional Chinese Feng Shui from the Institute of Excellence, Berlin Germany, the Yap Cheng Hai Academy, Singapore, Dr. Stephen Skinner, Singapore and also in Western Feng Shui Interior Design from the New York Institute of Art & Design, years of working within the Interior Design arena with learnings from International furniture and décor trade shows in Milan and Paris and permanent top-ups on Feng Shui disciplines at the International Feng Shui Association Singapore combined with the application of the SECOND NATURE© concept features have cemented my all-round approach to FENG SHUI WELLNESS DESIGN©. Clients whom appreciate this unique level of service include VIP’s, corporate entities, hospitality and government organizations.

    Combining the best of traditional with the latest in contemporary, results in a culturally connected approach to design. Having lived in Germany, Italy and the UAE and fluent in 4 languages, has helped me understand the need for a balanced perspective when working within spaces within the residential, commercial and hospitality arena.

    Feng Shui Wellness Design© combines trusted 'traditional techniques' with 'contemporary convenience’ resulting in a range of enhanced user experiences. Using the unique 'Second Nature’ model, practical and emotional solutions create a new level of comfort and enjoyment expected by today's discerning resident, employee and traveler.

     

    So far I was lucky to work on Feng Shui projects in the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Seychelles, Maldives, Indonesia (Bali and Lombok) and the United Kingdom.

     

    My mother tongue is German and I’m also fluent in English, Italian and French.

     

    My qualifications in Classical Chinese Feng Shui include the Form School and Compass School covering the concept of QI, YIN&YANG and Wu Xing / Five Elements, Xuan Kong Fei Xing / FlyingStars, Xuan Kong Da Gua / 64 Guas relationships, Ba Zhai / Eight Mansions, San He, Luan Tou Pai / Environmental Analysis and BaZi Suan Ming / The 4 pillars of Destiny.

     

    Among my teachers were Feng Shui Master Petra Coll-Exposito, Grand Master and International Bestseller Author Dr. Stephen Skinner, Master Yap Boh Chu - second generation Feng Shui Master and son of legendary Grand Master Yap Cheng Hai.

  • CLIENTS

    I'm grateful for the permission to publish some of my corporate clients.

  • TESTIMONIALS

    I'd like to thank my below clients and partners for their kind testimonials. It's nice to make a difference.

    Lorena Puica

    Founder CEO iamYiam Limited, London U.K.

    “Harmony of science and art”

    "Simone provided us a clear picture of the Feng Shui science overlayed with the art of her experience for one of our locations with the aim of achieving a human centric interior design that aligns with the values of our project: integrity, authenticity and purposeful logic.

    The combination of professionalism and personal service we received from Simone was outstanding."

    Tracey Turner​

    Marketing Director -The Landsite, Bournemouth, UK

    "I was recommended to contact SO Feng Shui Design for some advise on our recent office move in Bournemouth UK.

    My main objective was to create a harmonious environment within a small space for all our employees to enjoy working in. To reduce stress and allow a good energy flow. I was happy to take on board all advice Simone could provide us with. Simone is professional, passionate and extremely knowledgeable within her field of Feng Shui, Wellness and Design and she was more than happy to provide an office design best suited for a prop tech business.

    Simone drew up plans for positioning of furniture, to lighting - day light and internal lighting plus using different elements to promote a cheerful and uplifting environment for our employees.

    Simones' enthusiasm is contagious and I would highly recommend SO Feng Shui Design to anyone looking to create the ideal working environment for their business.

    On behalf of us all at The Landsite, a massive thank you to Simone for her help in creating a fantastic work space for us all to enjoy."

    Edward McHardy

    Managing Partner at The McHardy Group FZ LLC, Dubai U.A.E.

    "I must admit to being rather ignorant and skeptical as an architect with respect to the principles of Feng Shui even though it has been recognized for many years within the design profession.
    An opportunity arose to change all this when I was fortunate enough to work on a private Client's villa development here in Dubai.
    Simone certainly knew her subject and had the patience to educate me on the key principals of Feng Shui that should be employed when planning a villa. (..)
    Over the course of a number of weeks several annotations of plans were prepared and each time Simone analyzed and prepared clear and precise reports/findings on the success and failures of the plans. However Simone did not stop there but also prepared suggestions for addressing any challenge that came up and sitting down and clearly explaining with a smile even though at times she must have been frustrated with the architect, namely me.
    I would have no hesitation in recommending Simone to any Client who wished to take the subject of Feng Shui seriously and really wised to incorporate into their design. A true knowledgeable professional who has the added talent of being an interior designer, who has patience and a happy demeanor. Simone not only educates but brings a passion on the subject to the table.
    I for one wish Simone the very best and hope many client's will put their faith in her. I know I will."

    Zeina Noujaim

    Director at Architeriors Interior Design LLC, Dubai U.A.E.

    “Simone makes super sense of the world of Feng Shui”

    "Having worked with various Feng Shui practitioners, in many cases the final reports can be somewhat confusing. Simone’s Feng Shui solutions however bring creativity with clarity that is a breath of fresh air.

    On a recent government offices project she came back to us with very clear and understandable guidelines containing optional directions of desks, meeting tables, etc. She gave us graphical mood boards for all areas with options for colors and shapes, patterns and materials to use in all rooms. The job was basically done! Our presentation to our client was a great success. Simone even provided us a selection of Feng Shui friendly Italian furniture and accessories that we consequently have ordered on our client’s behalf.

    Simone understands the needs of architects and Interior Designers very well and is always ready for practical solutions. Her eye for design in combination with her experience in furniture and accessories make her unique in the Feng Shui field."

    Chanpheng Ratsavong

    Private Villa Arabian Ranches, Dubai U.A.E.

    "I was always curious to learn how I could apply Feng Shui for good health, loving relationships and a comfortable financial status for my family. I surfed the internet and read endless pages on the subject. However it was not easy to apply what I read because I found sometimes conflicting or confusing advice from different sources.

    Then a common friend introduced me to Simone who explained the greater benefits of a personalized Feng Shui consultation that will take into account at minimum the dates of birth of the entire family and the floor plan of my house. Mixing art and science, Simone audited each room methodically and precisely and provided a report full of practical, tasteful and useful advice. I was shocked when she pointed out a location of the house where a member of my family is suffering from a stomach problem! It was my daughter's bedroom but I had never told her that my daughter had indeed been suffering from this chronic pain since she was little. She suggested a solution to counter the adverse effect in that area of the house and my daughter is sleeping better these days.

    I would not hesitate to recommend Simone who is very warm and intuitive with razor sharp focus on making your living environment a better place to thrive. Give her a try and see it for yourself!"

     

     

    Severine D'Antras

    Private Villa in The Lakes, Dubai U.A.E.

    "I had a fantastic and moving experience with Simone applying Feng Shui to my new house.
    Simone chose my kid's bedrooms according to their personalities, she identified the colours that suited my needs and life style for all rooms. She arranged the furniture according to positive energy directions and as a result my home is now a zen haven.
    After the Feng Shui Consultation I found a new job within 3 months. I have never slept better. My friends love coming over to a positive and happy home. My son met his best friend next door. My children are calm and feel rested and are having a lot of friends coming over.
    It is the best thing we did for our family. I would recommend it for everyone."

    Emma Daly Goodall

    Owner of The Loungerie, Dubai U.A.E.

    "Working with Simone has been a very rewarding experience"

    "Not only is her knowledge of Feng Shui enlightening, it's how she shares the details. And this helped me get a better understanding of what we wanted to achieve. Simone is motivated by each individual project and its a pleasure to see her at work. I look forward to working with her again soon."

    Wafaa Azzaoui

    Owner of Copacabana Beauty Salon, Dubai U.A.E.

    "Starting my first own business I want everything to be almost perfect that’s why I’m so lucky to work with Simone. She’s very helpful and professional.
    The report was ready on time, clear and full of details it was beyond my expectations.
    Job well done, thanks Simone!"
