Transform Your Space

 

Often a child or teenager will spend hours in their room. As parents it can often be a place of great mystery and wonderment for us when we open those bedroom doors.

 

The Good Counsel specialist feng shui and design specialists work with parents and teenagers to make their own space the best retreat and haven it can be for your teenager of child.

 

This concept is where your teenager or child's living space or bedroom can be assessed and a new space designed to transform and create a healthy, age appropriate positive space that is conducive to study, relaxation and also restful sleep.

 

Introducing the teenagers favourite images they apsire to, access to music, meditation areas, calming and cooling colours, appropriate lighting for studying, relaxing and sleeping, decluttering, scent based therapies  and reorganising are all part of the process or transformation.

 

Minimizing harsh lighting, social media access and computer and gaming in this space will be discussed with your teenager/child to ensure they are happy and healthy in their own personal space.
