Enhancing Your New York City Terrace Is Good Feng Shui



  • Every aspect of your NYC apartment, whether it be inside or out, contributes to nurturing positive ch'i within your home and life. This also includes your terrace and it could become an extension of certain life sections according to the Ba-gua and Compass methods of Feng Shui.


    • Keep the terrace de-cluttered. This can become a tempting area to store excess stuff and forget about it. 
    • Consider adding a couple beautiful plants (at least during the warmer seasons) to help enliven this sector of your home.
    • Create a welcoming space with comfortable seating and a small table (if it fits).
    • Add ambience with subtle outdoor lighting; i.e. candles or artificial lights.
    • Offer a splash of color with seat cushions, throw pillows, planters and/or a small outdoor area rug.

Very nice and very important in my book.  Just did not realize that NY had so many apartments with terraces.

Having some green planters and flowers always make the NYC terrace wonderful.
