When I first got into the Interior Design & Décor industry I had a lot of “Say what?” moments. Usually, upon seeing the dumb expression on my face, my colleagues /employers would help me out with the meaning of the word that had me so perplexed. So, to save you some head-scratching, we are compiling a Décor Dictionary explaining all the design & décor lingo, jargon and terms you might be unfamiliar with. We will build the glossary gradually, adding one or two words every week.
If you want to know the meaning of a certain décor / design related word or if you have a suggestion, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
And with that, here is our very first word to be entered into the Décor Dictionary…
Feng Shui: pronounced ‘Fung Shway’ – literally translated means ‘wind-water’. It is the applied art of achieving balance and harmony in an environment. Space is planned and objects are placed in such a way as to facilitate the free flow of good energy. Hence the name ‘wind-water’.
