We Gather Together By Jini Rayne Now that autumn has arrived and winter is just around the corner, it is time to turn our attention to making our indoor spaces as comfortable and inviting as possible. Feng shui teaches that the more time one spends in a place, the more influence it has on your life. The bedroom is the place where most folks spend more time at home than anywhere else, making it the most important room from this point of view. The bedroom is the last thing you see at night and the first thing you see in the morning. Past articles in this publication have given tips on how to maximize the good energy in one’s bedroom, so consult those articles online if you missed them or need a refresher.

38 Fine Homes & Design | Fall 2018

Let’s look at another well used room in the home, the one where many of us spend more of our waking hours than any other. Whether it’s a living room, family room, great room or den, the room where the family gathers is the heart of the home. These rooms reflect the finances, status and careers of householders. They draw helpful guests, friends and relatives into the house. They collect the energy of/for the entire family, and these rooms should feel active and secure. It is desirable that the main living room be on the same level as the entryway and easily available from it, not down a long hallway. It should be easily

accessible from the entranceway so that the comfort of home greets residents and guests as they arrive. Feng shui would dictate that it be separate from other rooms with visible partitions. Open floor plans were not popular in ancient China. As is common in most cultures, feng shui values having walls for backing up seating areas for support. A maxim in the old West was to “Keep your back to the wall and your eye on the door�. It always feels more secure to be able to see what is coming. While it is desirable that the room be well lit by day and by night with no dark corners or areas, a wall of windows is seen as a negative circumstance. Too many windows allow chi to disperse. If there are many windows in a row, one can use plants or feng shui crystals to circulate the chi back into the room rather than letting it dissipate. Windows or doors in the left back corner (as seen from the doorway) are especially problematic as this is the area of the room having to do with abundance and wealth. None of us want this energy to be allowed to ebb. In addition to minimizing leaks of chi from too many windows or doors, it is good to be aware of physical leaks of air as well. Make sure that windows and doors seal properly. It is also good to have tight fireplace doors or at least a good damper to eliminate updrafts and chi leaks. Cleaning the chimney of a home should also be part of regular maintenance schedule.

Seating areas should be oriented to facilitate conversation. Seating lined up to face a television or a view makes interaction between people difficult. It is also desirable that seating areas not have exposed beams overhead. Sitting under a beam exposes the sitter to heaviness and downward pressure from overhead. Some people are particularly sensitive to this and will be very uncomfortable. Beams also define boundaries and may lead to people feeling separated from each other. If the room also serves as a passageway between rooms, try to have seating areas arranged away from that path. It is best if the main seating area is not located directly across from the doorway into the room. Chi flowing in through the door will bombard those sitting in its pathway. That said, it is desirable that the seat(s) where the householder(s) usually sit have a good view of the door (as well as the previously mentioned wall for support to the rear) in order to be able to see what is entering and be in a secure position. Now is the time to take a good look at the arrangement of your gathering room(s) to make sure they provide the welcome and comfort you want for your family and guests in the months ahead, a time of the year when we spend more time inside our homes, and a time when families often gather to mark the holiday season.

Investing in your well-being Through landscaping:

The Top 5 Reasons to Keep Projects Going All Year Long. By Snow Creek Landscape Services

If we know the natural world is beneficial to your well-being, and we know that many of us struggle with lack of energy and connectedness during the winter months - why do we decrease our connection with nature seasonally? Or better yet, why do we stop our outdoor projects in an area that support our relationship with nature? It was once said, ‘if a window of opportunity appears, don’t pull down the shade.’ For us - we keep our shades open all year long! Right now, Summer’s energy is still hanging around, with fall activities and holidays starting to bring a new kind of excitement. For many people, however, the increase of colder and shorter days will enviably loosen their personal connection to the environment around them. One thing we like to tell clients, is that Western North Carolina is a ‘mostly’ year-round climate for your landscaping needs. We can get snow in October, then be in t-shirts during Christmas. We have four seasons, they just don’t have a set schedule. Want to avoid those winter month blues? Ramp up your landscape projects through planning, organizing and implementing - regardless of whether you need an additional layer. We have many clients that work on their hardscapes work during the winter, and can barely contain themselves when spring starts emerging from their home. They earned the right to really embrace their

Our water features help bridge the natural world and the home environment, encouraging people to embrace the sounds of the world around them.

outdoor living area when spring begins its new growth. Here’s our top 5 reasons why your home landscaping isn’t just a seasonal project. The natural world has significant healing qualities to help your overall mental and physical health. We all have the winter blues. For some, it lasts longer than others, as the days continuously get shorter and colder. Others are able to embrace the seasonal change through activities that embrace our natural change. We can all agree, however, the months after the winter holidays seem to last forever! Our relaxed four seasons climate is the reason we are able to continue to work on most landscaping projects all year long. Our clients are able to keep the excitement of their outdoor projects all the way through to spring, then really embrace the growth as it warms back up. Whether you are working on outdoor projects - or just getting outside - it’s the experience that matters the most. Embracing the cool mountain air and embracing the seasonal change around you is sure to lower your stress level significantly. Learning and development are enhanced through the natural world - so learn more about your yard. Take the time to really get to know the land around you. It’s a simple but rewarding process that many take for granted. So how does one learn about the natural world during the Fall and Winter? For each homeowner, it can be spending a few hours a week learning about the plants that make up

their yard. Or better, yet, working on the projects they want to have in the future through planning, organizing, and calling the help they need to get it done. Here are some ideas fall and winter projects to help you learn about the natural world around you. Leaf identification: Collect them all before they fall to the ground, then learn to distinguish which tree produces what leaves by the bark, shape and color of the tree. Deciduous VS coniferous: Do you know the difference? Garden and Landscape design - Take the time to understand what you liked and didn’t like about your yard this summer. Accessible outdoor areas generally promote healthier lifestyle activities. If you don’t spend a lot of time accessing the outdoors of your home during the colder months, but want to, then figure out what’s stopping you. These are all projects that can be answered through the right design and on any budget. In Asheville, it is very common to see restaurants have year-round outdoor seating with heaters. Our climate allows that to a certain extent. For your home, we suggest accessible areas that can be heated, but also enjoyable through comfortable outdoor furniture. There is nothing better than a nice blanket on a chilly Fall evening on a back porch or patio. The air is just so crisp and inviting. If you find yourself sitting inside more during the Fall

Come home to a nature-loving, artists, or musician’s paradise! Before entering the light-filled Timberframe home, you are already experiencing the mountain views through the windows. You begin feeling as if you are floating through the treetops as the hawks soar through the skies. Leisure continues as you ascend the floating staircase to the loft. Grab a book, enjoy your drink and watch the sun set. As you pass through the great room into the kitchen,you are struck by the integration of art and design blending with the outdoor scenery. Total relaxation concludes at the vanishing edge salt water pool, hot tub, or fire pit. Everyday is a vacation!
