We've all heard of feng shui (pronounced fung-shway
), but does anyone really
have a grasp on how to give the ancient Chinese art a go? Unlocking the energy in your home may not be at the top of your to-do list, but many believe it can effect your love life, career, and overall sense of zen.
And since we're all about all
those things in 2013, R29 wrangled L.A.'s top classical Chinese feng shui expert, Anita Rosenberg, to give us some tips.
To show off her skills, Rosenberg (who counts Shepard Fairey and Virginia Madsen as fans) imparted her wisdom on the Hollywood bungalow of local PR golden child Jessica Trent
. And as It turns out, you don't have to hire a moving squad or invest in gobs of kooky mirrors and Buddha sculptures to make it work. Just take a look at the major dos and don'ts of the practice — in practice — right here, and prepare to get lucky!
