We enlisted the help of Feng Shui consultant Lesley Lauren Carrington to assessthe Bluewater Quiet Room and Clark Levy’s ‘below stairs area’. She used aChinese compass to measure the ‘elemental properties’ of the roomsBluewater”The spiral leading into the room is inviting, you find that you wantto follow and see where it leads. The circular shape of the room is brilliantand the stones are wonderful, but the room is only making use of about 10 percent of its potential. I understand that the lilac colour used in the room isconsidered in Western thinking to be a colour expressing spirituality. Butlilac is a mixture of red and blue – red is fire and blue is water – they areactually cancelling out each other.”The small alcoves fall into the main points of the compass and youcould colour them to signify the elements – metal (with white or grey), wood(green), water (blue or black) fire (reds). It would also benefit the room toput different visual images in the three wall sections of the circle, such agalaxy perhaps, a water world and a landscape or cottage garden. I would alsoput cushioning on the polished wood seating, to encourage people to sit forlonger. The skeleton is here, but with a little effort, you could build abody.”Clark Levy”The windows do provide natural light. My first impression was that theblank wall beyond needs a painting on it to provide diversion and restfulness.But the staff who use this room don’t come down here to rest, they come tounwind. This hidden room is like a cloister. Because of the grills on the windowand the blank wall beyond, it gives a feeling of being shut in.”There are no diversions here, no posters or pictures, this room wouldmake you let go. People go to cloisters and sabbaticals in order to ‘find’themselves. And strangely enough, without very much being added to it, this isjust what this room invites. It is very well suited to its purpose.”last_img read more
