You might not be familiar with the principles of feng shui, or the Chinese practice of arranging the environment to create harmonious surroundings. But, even if you aren't, you'll notice something different about a place designed along these principles. There's a sense of quiet, a certain ease, a comfort that makes a house feel like a home.
That is why The Olson Company works with Jessie Kim, a renowned feng shui consultant, for many of its projects. Kim advises the company from the outset of a new project, helping orient buildings, laying out streets, and even selecting the artwork that hangs from the halls of the model homes. Once Olson became aware of her work, the company has consulted with her on a regular basis.
