Feng Shui Corporate Flowers For Elevating a Sense of Camaraderie

Flower arrangements that follow the time-old principles of feng shui act as a source of renewal, imbuing rooms and surfaces with visual grace and beauty, even sensuality, and encourage us all to cultivate a general sense of gratitude. Cherry blossoms, for example (sounds like cheery, doesn’t it?) are one method for brightening up lobbies, the corners of your office, and helping to encourage coworkers’ collaboration.

Only once we appreciate our surroundings, feel comfortable and calm in our workspace, can we focus on the work that lies in front of us and simultaneously raise awareness and give our attention to others around us who may need our help.

Lotus Flowers in the Lunchroom, in Meeting Rooms and Home Offices

One of the clean, clear and essential components of fung shui is simplicity. And there are few flowers with the simple purity and perfection, the beauty and peace promoting properties like the lotus flower.

Lotus flower arrangements can be displayed in your own office, the cafeteria, or meeting tables. Lotus flowers clear the mind, bringing about an inner harmony with one’s thoughts (how you see your own behaviours or performance at work, for example) and allow you to let go of the past, not dwell too much on the future, and instead shift into a lucid and focused space in the present.

Bamboo Plants and Zen Gardens for a Sense of Well-Being

Sometimes, in order to cultivate mindfulness and tap into our more creative selves, and especially our capacities for solving the more difficult problems we can face at work, we need to take an active break from the issue at hand.

Bamboo plants and Zen garden flower arrangements are perfect for active contemplation. The simplicity of green office plants and beauty of nature is a way to increase the harmony of one’s surroundings, tapping into the power of feng shui décor while not overwhelming any one area with too much colour or “busier” and more complex flower arrangements.

Office Layout and Feng Shui Flower Placement

It is important not to overlook the way you arrange the flowers and furniture in your office. From the vantage point of feng shui, anything that disrupts the flow of your space or physically interrupts your movement through the room will actually impede your creativity and ability to think coherently.

So definitely keep your desk clear of papers, loose pens, and any office odds and ends like tacks or paper clips. Dust frequently. Also position your feng shui flowers or indoor plants in the corners of your office—according to the wisdom and principles of feng shui, this should prevent sluggishness and encourage a more active energy, with great mental acuity.
