A month ago I had the pleasure of teaching a workshop on Feng Shui for Interior Design. My friend Christine, of The Studio of Christine Wisnieski, has been (in addition to their creative design business) producing a creative workshop series for a few years now and I was thrilled to be invited to teach on a topic I'm passionate about.
Interior design is a challenge for many. Feng Shui may come with a lot of connotations and (frankly) misconceptions, but at a fundamental level, it's full of really useful tools to help you make interior design decisions more confidently.
These tools prove really useful for people with decision fatigue and overwhelm from having to make too many design decisions for their home.
The workshop was 3 hours. My feeling was that it was one hour too long. Each hour is jam-packed with tips and tricks and our brain's lose focus after 90-120 minutes based on our body's ultradian rhythms. So, I'm thinking about the content for a part 2 to offer to the attendees of the first workshop, but also think the next offering will actually be a two-class package. More on this in the new year but in the meantime, I'm just so so happy with how the first class went. The feedback was awesome!
Here are a few quotes from attendees:
"Captivating and informative! Refreshing to dialogue about how design relates to our day to day goal setting and emotional well being! - Jacob Holland Creative Director Event Source jacob.simon.holland
The evening was so INSPIRING!! I can't wait to put what I leaned into action and make my home a place that truly supports my goals and dreams!! -Deana
Danielle presented the elements and the yin yang concepts in a way that helped me apply them to any room to achieve the balance and harmony I seek. So often I know a room needs "something but what". I feel like the tools she shared will help me achieve that sense of a room 'feeling right" Thank you!! Angie
The entire workshop was extremely informative and very useful for our everyday lives! Jennifer
The attendees were all so awesome! Everyone arrived excited and interested. They asked smart (very smart!) questions and kept me on my toes!
There is a lot of content to share. I tried to structure the lessons in a way that helped all attendees see their home in these lessons and tools and I think they did! Anyway, it was a joy for me and I can't wait to do it again!
