Don't send creative energy out the window. It may seem like a lovely idea to put your desk facing a window with a view — but before you settle in, consider the feng shui concept of "commanding position." By placing your desk in a commanding position — that is, a place where you can see most of the room (including the doorway), you are likely to feel more secure and in charge of your space. Also, remember the primary purpose of your room — is it to relax or daydream? If so, placing your desk directly in front of a window may be ideal; but if your goal is to work efficiently, another layout may work better for you. Still want to take advantage of the view? Try positioning your desk with the window to one side, so you can look out the window when you need a break.
