Seating and other accessories. Furniture can provide a comfortable place to sit and savor a view, but the choice of what type should be made carefully with the prime users in mind. Elderly people or those with health problems may need seats with arms, backs, and cushions. Outdoor rugs add color and pattern and can become a soft place to perform yoga or meditate. Aside from furniture, Monterey, Calif.–based feng shui expert Preeti Sodhi Sharma likes to use accessories to set the tone. “Buddhas and other statues help improve the chi energy in a garden and remind users to stay in the present.” For those with more space, a simple structure such as a small wooden bridge can work as part of a physical therapy program to improve balance and coordination, says Ray Ward, who helped to design and maintains several of Marianjoys Wheaton campus gardens.
When factory buildings and warehouses in New Yorks downtown manufacturing district were converted to loft-style apartments starting in the 1950s, a grittier industrial chic took hold, leaving ceiling ductwork and beams exposed. Lofty heights remained in vogue throughout the 1980s and 90s, but fancier vaults, peaks, and arches emerged as McMansions became the rage. However, as concern about the high cost of energy consumption gained traction, the idea of heating and cooling all that extra space turned some off high ceilings. They were lowered, though rarely to less than 8 feet, and left unadorned, a nod toward a modern aesthetic that often shunned crown molding and other details.
