Bonnie Hildesheim your window over the bed is not what they are talking about. your bed still has a solid wall behind it grounding the bed, not a widow BEHIND it that could make you feel less safe. your window and view are wonderful.

feng shui is really about the feel you have in room. seeing the door from the bed and not having a window behind it just helps feeling safer. pairs in lighting and night tables gives each person both equal importance or if single allows for the possibility of someone else sharing your life. beds in corners are not only hard to make but really only work for kids. mirrors in bedrooms are only bad if you see them from bed or are directly across from an entry. stuff under the bed is stuff under the bed that really should find another home or got rid of. if you believe in the concept or not, what does it hurt to try if you may feel more comfortable in the room.

I live in a 125ft2 studio, so I don’t have any options for moving my bed from the corner that it occupies. However, as the bed’s location is in a horribly un-feng shui area, I did all that I could possibly do to eliminate the poison arrows. I moved the headboard about 14” away from the wall and the window. I hung two sheer curtain panels to “divide” the headboard from the window ( and I have slept much better ever since!). The day bed does have four drawers underneath, but since it is a double bed I am not sleeping entirely over my things inside. The red light in the south corner helps attract love :)
