Helping you DESIGN the Life of Your Dreams DeAnnaRadaj...Helping You Design the Life of Your Dreams From the Outside In
Sorry it's been so long since posting! 2015 ended up being a bit of chaotic year filled with much sadness in the endings that occurred & ending the year with much happiness as it felt that everything finally fell into place. So, on that note, 2016 has been off to a great start, so it's fitting that the first post of the year is on Year of the FIRE Monkey!
Here are some Feng Shui tips that you can implement to get your New Year off to an auspicious start....
From Ellen Whitehurst's facebook page: .....Here are a few suggestions for making this a prosperous and loving New Year! Make a resolution and write it in red but make it a seemingly impossible dream. The first day of this Year of the Monkey will bring good fortune the whole year through if you hang some faux firecrackers immediately inside the front door and leave them there for the first 15 days of this year. On the second day go visiting and gambling - generally setting a precedent to have BIG fun for the year. And whenever you meet anyone today and want to wish them fortune and luck say this :"May you live in interesting times." This is considered a stronger wish than a prayer. Cook a wonderful meal on Day Four while also acknowledging your Kitchen Spirits as you ask them to nourish you in every way possible. Lastly, give away mandarin oranges to friends and family as they represent immortality and good fortune.
From Feng Shui London, this is a WONDERFUL article on how to apply Classical (compass) Feng Shui for the Fire Monkey/2016, color & to various rooms. Check it out here.
AND....if Chinese New Year celebrations weren't enough...here comes Valentine's Day right around the corner!! Make sure to listen to the upcoming Valentine's Day episode on DeAnna On Design podcast found here.

One of the BIG initiatives that I launched this year is the Healthy Year, Healthy Home, Healthy YOU consultations. Encompassing clutter-busting & a healthy home analysis, these 1 hour consultations will feature the client's choice of a Life Area goal to focus on (if a client wants to work on more than 1 Life Area, the subsequent choices will be billed at 25% off HYHHHY cost).

I've also been honored to part of the inaugural program w/NKBA, due to the success & popularity of my KBIS Voices of the Industry talks & sessions, to teach & offer exclusive workshops to NKBA chapters here in the US & Canada! I got to travel up north to Ottowa Canada to present to the #NKBA chapter there on Feng Shui tips in the kitchen & bathroom, as well as presentation skills. Check out the Speaker Info page for pictures. :) So looking forward to traveling more & visiting more chapters.
....while Ossie & I currently live in Charlotte, I'm not a Panthers fan. Can't take the green & gold out of THIS WI girl! However, I do love football & congrats to the Broncos & Peyton Manning for an entertaining game & going out on a high, record-setting note. Class act all the way!
