Look around…do your spaces inspire you or totally freak you out?


That undeniable feeling you get when entering an inspiring room is hard to describe but we all know it, right? Well, it’s not a mystery it’s an ancient science; it’s called feng shui and Kim Colwell, interior designer and co-founder of the Shamballa Institute, offers a range of practical and spiritual approaches to redefine the spaces we dwell within.

While every one of us is looking to create a meaningful life with more equanimity, peace and success…have we arranged our lives in a way that sets us up to achieve it? Believe it or not one of the most overlooked areas is our physical environment. The spaces you create to work and live in translates into other domains of your life, or vice versa. So, if your office and car are a big fat mess it might not surprise you that your mind and your schedule are too.

But Kim says that by becoming more aware of your surroundings you can begin to make simple but profound changes that will help you function better, bring you back into balance and attain the illusive “Zen.”  She has a way of inspiring us all to clean it up, throw it out and invite meaning into every corner; stuff you can implement right now without spending a single penny.  How cool is that?



Kim Colwell is a sustainable interior designer, second-generation feng shui master and co-founder of the Shambhalla Institute.  She leads international workshops on sustainable design and holds a BFA from NYU.  Her work has been featured in Angelino, JCK Luxury, Rapaport Diamond Report, Women’s Wear Daily, InStore and National Jeweler.

    It is so nice to have someone speak about the way things flow in to your home as well as your garden and the earth that we live on. I thought what Kim had to say was wonderful.

    Great interview! Kim is the bomb when it comes to fixing up space while watching the budget. She came in and revamped my client’s restaurant in just one session…Thanks again, Kim!
