Different Strokes for Different Folks

DIFFERENT STROKES FOR DIFFERENT FOLKS
The article on decorating an office, “Feng Shui for Beginners” ( Dec.05, page 36 ), is the most stupid topic I have ever seen covered in the JofA .

While the profession is still reestablishing itself as worthy, something like this gets printed. At my house we get Southern Living and Better Homes and Gardens. If I wanted decorating help, I would look to these publications.

“Feng Shui for Beginners” was an interesting and entertaining article, and it made some very good suggestions for a more pleasant and efficient workplace.

In my circumstances—working in a 50+ person office—it is not possible or practical to implement most of the suggestions. However, there is sound advice in creating a more eye-pleasing and clutter-free workplace.

My only problem is that I need to seriously take that advice.
