(Note: there’s a photo gallery at the bottom of this article.) In my last post, I wrote about fake books that get placed in a home to make the owner look well-read, until of course someone tries to pick up one of the books & realizes the falseness.

The first time I saw a “pot filler” in a client’s home, I was speechless. I knew I was looking at a feng shui nightmare, and I also knew that I would not be able to come up with a “cure.” So when an Oahu client recently told me that she was planning to have ..read more
