Why this word?

“Irenic” originated from the Greek word “eirēnē,” which means “peace.” If you use this adjective, you are describing something truly serene. If you are trying to make your home more irenic, look into feng shui. One philosophy of this ancient Chinese practice is to improve energy flow through small changes, such as making sure the path to your front door is always clear.
