Feng Shui Wellness Design©
My approach to Feng Shui Wellness Design© provides a balanced combination of
Eastern Feng Shui techniques,
Western Interior Design principles
& Global Wellness standards
The ancient Chinese geomantic practise of FENG SHUI is the study and analysis of the interaction between people, buildings and their environment and aims to secure financial and human luck. It is the harmonious balance of space and energy through the most suitable allocation of rooms and their arrangement of furniture and objects. Various Feng Shui schools are applied based on the three principles of QI, Yin & Yang and the Five elements Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood.
The WELLNESS aspect measures and monitors the effects of the built environment and how it impacts human health and well-being through the senses of sight, sound, smell, touch, familiarity, comfort and safety. The measuring of electric and electromagnetic radiation and noise levels completes this all-round approach to a total Wellness concept.
The DESIGN element includes architectural Design, Interior Design and Landscaping Design. Prosperous Feng Shui environments require exterior space planning to lay the ground for the ideal positioning of buildings, walkways and water features. Subsequent interior space planning within the buildings is fine-tuned by Interior Design principles addressing the room layout, furniture, accessories, materials, colors, patterns and shapes, lighting, flooring and drapes to support the positive energy flow.
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 and 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 products imported from the most prestigious European brands to the most cost effective locally sourced solutions.

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, Malaysia, 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.

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), Turkey and the United Kingdom.
My mother tongue is German and I’m also fluent in English, Italian and French.

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

“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."
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!"

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!"
