We've posted about Feng Shui before on Apartment Therapy, sharing how the principles can be applied in the bedroom, bathroom and even the front door. We've come across a local Austin real estate agent using Feng Shui to transform homes for sale into fresh and inspiring spaces, and who has a website full of inspiring before and after photos... Elizabeth Golembiewski of Balanced Living Properties has had an appreciation for aesthetics and design since she was a child, so it came as a natural choice to combine her real estate profession with that of Feng Shui principles. Helping homeowners create balanced and inviting spaces, she claims they sell on average 39 days faster than other home listings in Austin. A certified Feng Shui consultant, Golembiewski has trained in some of the best Feng Shui programs in the United States and Canada.
Her new website not only features a gallery of all the homes currently for sale, but also a gallery of how she's used Feng Shui principles to transform spaces. Featuring simple ideas, you can really see a positive difference in the before and after photos. Focusing on helping visitors to her website, Golembiewski has added a feature on her site that shares the top 10 Feng Shui principles you can use in your own home. We liked how Golembiewski describes that she works toward helping homeowners find the right home for the buyer and the right buyer for the home.
What's your take on Feng Shui in the home? Do you think the principles are useful in design or for selling houses? Do you think that each home has a "right" buyer for it? Let us know!
