This Old House
In New England, you’ll find all types of homes – colonials dating back to the 1700’s, cape-cod style homes, garrison colonials, split levels, ranches, and yes, McMansions.
My house is an older colonial, and I like to refer to it as my “doll house.” The rooms aren’t large, and when shopping for furniture I have to looks for pieces that are scaled down to a smaller size. It’s almost impossible for me to shop at some of the big box furniture stores for solid wood furniture because the pieces are so large.

The kitchen is the most important area of your home. It’s responsible for nourishing your entire family and keeping everyone happy and healthy. In feng shui,the kitchen is a symbol of wealth and abundance also. In some cases, it also serves as a work-at-home mom’s home office.
The optimal place for your kitchen is the center of your home. If the kitchen is located near the front or back door, the positive energy can escape.
Food gives us all of our energy and enables us to remain healthy. To keep this food energy positive and healing, the food has to be cooked in an organized kitchen that maintains a good balance of Chi. By having a well balanced and energized kitchen, the cook becomes more energized and the entire family benefits.
The best tips for the kitchen are pretty basic and should go hand in hand with the rest of your home very easily. Lighting is an important part of feng shui and in the kitchen, there should be an abundance of natural light if available and if not, full spectrum lighting is recommended. The air should flow nicely and the kitchen should give off a very welcoming energy.
A great way to add positive energy to your kitchen is by using plants and flowers. When placed on your kitchen table or jelly cabinet, they’re not only beautiful to look at but increase the positive energy level greatly. You should use plants and flowers that are yellowish in color because in feng shui, yellow is a great digestive aid.
Like the rest of the house, clutter should be kept as minimal as possible. Since this is the very heart of the home, keep it as happy and warm as possible.
