As a child raised in an environment of physicians Nancy has found ways to meld her own path, using design with her family’s influence of healing. In order to do this, she has incorporated the practice of Feng Shui- intuitive consious design which relies on the principles of nature- into her design methods. Since 2002 Wind Water Design has evolved a philosophy on the importance of conscious
design in regards to how our spaces effect us. 

A Fusion of Intuitive Design and Function
Wind Water provides Feng Shui consultation and design techniques for residential as well as commercial spaces.

Feng Shui can be an amazing practice that allows one to examine their inner reality through their outer world. In working with her clients, Nancy explains that we create our own world, inside and out and that the landscape of our environment has a direct affect on our moods, health, direction, goal fulfillment, and general ability to enjoy life.
These include:
furniture arrangement for optimum flow and efficiency
color schemes to support the primary function of a space
organizational plans for work and hobby environments
custom wall treatments and finishes, graphic wall art &  murals
graphic identity for print, web and marketing

Feng Shui Applied to Graphic Design
Feng Shui is an art and science which can be applied to all aspects of life. In graphic design examples can be found as elemental symbols applied to graphic layouts, symbolic colors, or colors used to enhance a desired response to an ad logo, or business card, and two dimensional design techniques that draw a viewer in and uplift the mood to create a good association with a service or product. Balance creates a feeling of trust, repetition creates a feeling of reliabilty, contrast promotes interest, and depth inspires. 

Feng Shui Applied to your Environment

Harmonizing and balancing techniques applied to interior spaces in the form of color, texture, imagery and form to nurture not just the objectives of commercial applications, but the needs of the individual in a private space can truly change your every day life. Everyday life is a fractal of the bigger picture, your life as a whole. If the parts are healthy, balanced and whole, the sum will become so as well. Feng Shui is for everyday.
Nancy hopes to awaken the awareness of higher standards in others, as they become inspired to take a look at their surroundings and ask whether they are nurtured and supported and make the changes that will do so.


Nancy Nashed received her BFA in Fine Arts from The Savannah College of Art and Design, and her Professional Classical Feng Shui Certification from The San Francisco School of Feng Shui, considered the most dynamic and comprehensive practitioner training available. She has had the opportunity to study with Roger Green, Alex Stark, Janine Bjornson, David Crowe, & Carol Vinolia among others

Nancy attended Stetson University, in Deland Florida as an Art Major. Though she had a strong connection with her teachers there, she transferred to The Savannah College of Art and Design where she was able to study computer art techniques. Her study of two-dimensional design evolved into a career of art sales and freelance design- working directly with artists, gallery owners, and graphic arts clients. For Nancy the most rewarding experiences in working with clients is the defining moment when a client feels empowered by the creation of a design that embodies their true goals.

Feng shui is concerned with creating sacred space, and a harmonious environment where energy (‘qi’ in Chinese) can flow so we can live our full potential in comfort and beauty.

Feng shui can be applied in very practical ways. For instance you can rearrange your furniture, or hang something beautiful in an otherwise dark or dingy corner, or note the orientation of a house before you make a purchase. Many times the solution is a practical, tangible change.

To many people it’s pretty clear that if you move a piece of furniture out of a commonly used pathway there is more energetic flow through the space. Using this simplified example can help you understand how you could apply the same principles to more complex situations. We do not always appreciate how sensitive we are to our environment, but realize how uncomfortable you feel when you walk into a dreary neglected waiting room, or how the sound of a creaky hinge can make you tense, or the color or lighting in a room may cause you to feel either depressed or cheerful. There are many opportunities to make the most of your surroundings.

A carefully arranged environment may affect how you live in very positive ways.  When positive energy flows well in our home or office, the effect becomes apparent in our daily lives. It may show up as better health and or increased energy, more satisfying relationships, newly inspired creativity, a feeling of well-being and security or better financial situations.

Practicing Feng Shui is a way to nurture yourself and your family responsibly. It is also a spiritual practice of awareness, reverence to nature and expression of creativity. Many people have purchased a book and begun to practice techniques in their own home. Learning to work with the tools of Feng Shui accurately can be frustrating, confusing or difficult, just like learning anything new. However, remember that your intuition is your greatest tool. Learn to trust your inner guidance. That is the true tool which underlies all healing modalities (a process of restoring balance), including Feng Shui. If you find yourself needing guidance or want support from a group, please join us for a feng shui workshop. You may find a complete schedule here >
