Jennifer A. Emmer is a Feng Shui Master, Interior Designer, Color Consultant & HGTV featured professional with 20 years of experience, and hundreds of happy clients.
She has designed businesses, homes, hotels, movie studios, restaurants, and spas on the West Coast, East Coast, South and Middle United States as well as in Italy, England, Hong Kong and Singapore.
She was also featured on HGTV’s Flip It to Win it in August, 2014. The episode is called “Welcome to the Jungle”.
She began studying and practicing Feng Shui in 1995 in San Francisco’s Chinatown, with immediate and impressive results. She pumped up her “Helpful People” corner, and met Academy Award Winning Film Editor Gabriella Cristiani. Gabriella had learned Feng Shui in China, after editing The Last Emperor, for which she received an Oscar in 1987.
After performing consultations with Gabriella, Jennifer studied the teachings of Master Larry Sang of the American Feng Shui Institute in Los Angeles, where she learned the oldest forms of Feng Shui: the “Form School”, “Compass School”, “Flying Star School” and “Eight Mansion Theory”. In 1997, Jennifer created L.A. Feng Shui in Venice, California, where she worked with many movie studios, celebrities, artists, and actors. In 2000, she decided to leave the frenetic pace of L.A. and return to the Bay Area, where she established Feng Shui Style.
As for her “classical” education, Jennifer studied Humanities at Harvard University, with a major in French and History, which eventually led her to architecture and Historic Preservation. She also studied Design and Photography at the Massachusetts College of Art, Non-linear video editing at Boston Film & Video, Oil Painting and Italian in Florence, Italy, and International Business at Boston University.
All her experience and passions ultimately combined in the practice of Feng Shui, which involves architecture, color, design, people, history, and culture.
Jennifer lives in an 1895 Queen Anne Victorian house, which she has “Feng Shui’ed” from top to bottom. She regularly speaks at Preservation Conferences, and is on the Design Committee for the New High-Speed Rail and Train Station in Santa Clara County.

I was tired of being single, and wanted to move to the East Coast, so I asked Jen to Feng Shui my bedroom. Within 6 months, I was married to my dream man, pregnant, and living in New York City. I also got an unbelievable job as an Account Manager at a Japanese printing company that does giant coffee table books. To say I was happy is an understatement.”
Jennifer worked with us to design the restaurant from the ground up. Consequently, we had the best possible Feng Shui from the beginning. We have been averaging a growth of 15-20% every month. We are making $125,000/month. Due to our success, we are expanding to the place next door, which will double our square footage (to around 260 square meters/3000 square feet). We are also going to franchise our business. We want Jennifer to Feng Shui all of it!”
