Sometimes you have questions that are very specific to just one situation, and I often ask for pix to give you a little general feedback- as much as I can without meeting you and analyzing your whole house. Marjan would like to find love that is lasting- a reasonable request! She wondered if the empty corner in her home or the fact that her dogs like to sleep in bed were contributing factors in the love equation. Here’s what her home tells me & my initial impressions of the feng shui love situation!

I was contemplating putting a full length mirror in that spot but not sure if it’s good to have a mirror facing the bed at an angle. The other thought was to make it the dog’s “bedroom” and place a bed for them so they don’t sleep with me. I’ve tried kicking them out but they are so nice and cuddly that it’s been hard to do. I saw your post about sleeping with dogs and while I would want to be with a man who likes them, I wonder if initially I need to make room for a man by not having them in the bed; after all 2 little toy italian greyhounds can be a tough sell at first ;-).
Anyway, thanks for taking a look and let me know what you see as the problem for not bringing the right man who wants to stick around into my life.”
My answer: As I glance at the “empty” Relationship area of the bagua in your bedroom pictured above I am not alarmed. However, when I look at your floor plan, without actually meeting you, I have a few very strong impressions that I can share with you.
First of all, your bedroom is in the Self-empowerment/Prosperity area of your home overall. Does this mean you will not find love? Nope. It means that you are more likely to pour most of your attention into your career or your personal development in a sense and that men you meet are more likely to be related to your business or engaged in what you do. This can be challenging for people at times. Also, very strong career women (and I am not sure if you are) have the challenge of dropping their go-getter ambition and calming down to be receptive to love. This is the wisdom of famed psychologist and relationship expert Pat Allen. You may dig her books, especially “Getting To I Do”!
Ok, now to your bed placement, which is much more revealing than an “empty” corner in your home. Your headboard is in the area that suggests that the men in your life are more buddies, friends or transitory. Its the area that deals with a sense of community, and you may even meet men who feel more like family than lovers.
Although I know your other wall appears to be a wall of windows, and it is “bad feng shui” to put your bed in front of windows, with some sheer curtains and the solid headboard you have, I would flip your bed so that it was centered along that wall for a spell and see how that feels. You will be in a solid position of Future. I did this for a friend and her relationship is flourishing where it was failing.
So, I am not too worried about your empty corner and I do love your aesthetic and your gorgeous fur babies! I’d also, FYI, move your armoire to where the bed is presently and put very big art on the entrance wall. Again, these are my initial impressions, not a full feng shui consulation, but they are where things leap out at me first!
Let me know what you think and how it goes! xxx Dana
