Celebrating Interior Designer Chat Four Year Anniversary on Twitter is a serious celebration, and we are so excited!  Think about it,  who else in our industry for nearly every week, has supported and built others by giving back?   Interior Designer Chat has never asked for dues, fees, or tried to sell you something.  We have hosted a #IntDesignerChat weekly, since June 2010 with  Twitter chat topics and brought you leading Guest Hosts that have shared thought-provoking education, inspiration, and global conversations.  We should all be proud, that our Interior Designer Chat community conversations have spanned the wide world of  interior design, building, design, and social learning.  Factually we have drawn hundreds of millions of impressions (eyeballs) on our #IntDesignerChat Twitter Chat and have produced hundreds of Twitter Chats successfully. Factually we are one of the longest running Twitter chats on @Twitter and we are proud to have reached World Wide Trending.

We’ve learned a ton.  Interior Designer Chat has grown to a global respected community, and we’re humbled.   This is a community that continually and without fail, guides us to the next big thing.   We have collaborated with and been touched in so many ways by so many in our industry.   Since 2010 we have always embraced and welcomed new participants,  to network and  discuss the challenges of when it comes to our daily professional lives.   We have enjoyed and grown by collaborating with our #IntDesignerChat Guest Hosts  who have honored our Interior Designer Chat  community by giving back education and  experts advice.

We have grown the Interior Designer Chat community organically with integrity.  This has taken a lot of work, patience, and we’ve stayed true to our mission “of giving back.”   As a team, we are proud and embrace the collaborations we have experienced globally.  While we’ve all watched others getting into social media to profit off participants building their communities.   Interior Designer Chat  has not let anyone down.  We only have built others.

#IntDesignerChat April 22 Guest Host @CaroleShashona Carole Shashona Topic: Sensory Whispers: Design In Harmony

#IntDesignerChat Guest Host Carole Shashona @CaroleShashona

Tuesday April 22, 2014 Interior Designer Chat’s Guest Host is Carole Shashona  and her  Topic:  Sensory Whispers: Design In Harmony.

Sleek and chic—East meets West—describes the frequent juxtaposition in all of Carole Shashona’s interiors. After sharpening her insight in decades of work using professional interior design skills combined with the ancient Feng Shui tenets, she has created a technique you won’t find anywhere else. She is an expert in how energy flows in and around each room, and her sensory enhancement allows her to read what normally cannot be seen. Each part of the space is a component of a larger whole, and this must be taken into account at the earliest stage of the design process to insure that proportion and symmetry are in balance. Style, function, and productivity are primary considerations in this process, as is eco-friendly design. Imagine the energy in your home or building as a prism; the faceted sides of a prism capture the light in perfect harmony Carole’s design studies provide insight to capture the energy within each room design; applying specific colors and furnishings then enhances and brings harmony within the walls.

Carole is twice-designated Grand Master in the art of Feng Shui, the ancient Asian philosophy of creating healing environments through the placement of objects, art, and accessories, as well as achieving architectural balance. This unique mix of being an accredited associate ASID Interior Designer and a Feng Shui Grand Master is fundamental to her design philosophy. From Mediterranean to left bank Paris to cool Seventies modern with Asian Chic twists, she custom designs and scales in addition to purchasing fabric, wallpaper, and furniture for hotel corporate, and residential projects.

Carole’s approached, coined “Sensory Design”, is derived from formulas and “trade secrets” fundamental to the art of Feng Shui and translated from ancient manuscripts by Grand Master Leung—Carole’s Feng Shui master. The translations were handed to her in a traditional Feng Shui ceremony in Hong Kong. These sacred texts are translated from the original ancient silk manuscripts in master Leung’s private collection. The original Chou Silk Manuscripts are currently housed in the private collection a the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in Washington, C.C.. Carole integrates these ancient formulas into every design project. The result is an artful body of work, which is both timely and timeless creating what she calls The Power of Wellness.
