The Feng Shui of Love shows readers how the design of their home affects their outlook on life, which in turn affects their personal and romantic relationships. The book begins with two questionnaires for the reader: the first helps to define the reader's best points; the second helps them figure out the conditions they want in a relationship. The author then helps the reader establish their personal and relationship elements -- water, metal, fire, wood, or earth -- through easy-to-follow charts. The first section ends with a brief description of the 60 personality types found within Chinese astrology, in order to help the reader find the types they are most compatible with.

This section includes a number of actual case studies, helping the reader better understand their own priorities in creating comfortable, positive, and loving homes.
