When I walked into Hayko Fine Rug and Tapestries on the Upper East Side this summer, I was transported instantly to Istanbul. Ok, I have never been there, but it’s what I imagined it to be. I was honored to be called in for a feng shui consultation by Hayko Oltaci, owner of this magical store. Hayko and I discussed what he was trying to achieve and together we used this information and various feng shui adjustments to help enhance his business.
Believe it or not, this respite is right in the middle of New York City!

Many people usually ask me, “Is it ok to have old things in my home?” My answer to will vary according to what the person is referring to. If the objects in question are things left over from exes that make you cringe each time you look at it, I’d say better to get rid of them! But, if it’s something that is infused with beautiful energy and brings you joy each time you see it, like one of Hayko’s rugs, I would say cherish it and if possible, highlight it by putting it somewhere in your space where you see it all the time. This way you’ll lift your chi each time you see it.

Glorious. That is all I can say about the results of his hard work. If you are in the market for a fine rug, a rug weaving class or just haven’t had time to take a vacation, go visit Hayko’s store and have a cup of hot tea with him in the cafe. You too will be transported and well-taken care of.
