Using Feng Shui on Your Website

Can Feng Shui improve your website’s look and functionality?

The jury is out for that, but clearly when you are looking for inspiration on colour and design why not use Feng Shui? Every year the Chinese Calendar guides us on lucky colors.

Website Colors for the Year of the Snake

Accommodation in OakleighLamplighter Motel in Melbourne’s Eastern Suburb of Oakleigh had their old website hacked and needed a quick solution to restore their Internet presence as well as provide a fresh and updated look that matched the motel’s new style.

The owners are Chinese and for fun we looked to see what Feng Shui might suggest for web site design and found some surprisingly nice colour combinations that proved to be interesting and attractive.

Feng Shui lucky colors for the Year of the Snake are Blues, Orange and Gold.

About Mark

Founder of Web Reservation Systems, focused on helping businesses in the Australian Accommodation travel sector get more value from Internet Marketing. Originally, we opened up in 2001 as a supplier of Front Office Software linked to Online Booking facilities. That allowed motels and hotels to add booking buttons to their websites as well as sell through Global Distribution Systems. You could say this was an early 'Channel Manager' because it allowed the property manager to simply control price and availability for a diverse array of wholesale and retails websites. Next, we started building websites to profile our customers (Australian Holiday Guide). That lead to building websites for customers as a favour. Now do about 80 websites a year using BurgundySky and Joomla. For small businesses I recommend using BurgundySky as it is very easy to start and manage. Joomla is also great, but harder to install and maintain for a small business. Our web design business is based in Byron Bay, NSW. Byron Bay is a great place to live and work. I have 2 kids (15 and 17) who are both born here and my wife, Shobhan Oliver) is a successful artist.
