It’s that time of year again! The lunar new year is upon us and many of our clients are celebrating the new year of the rat. Individuals this year are born optimistic and energetic. Did you know it’s Tina’s zodiac too? In Chinese culture, rats were seen as a sign of wealth and surplus. In terms of yīn and yáng, the rat is yang and represents the beginning of a new day. So, in the spirit of the new year and lucky rat, we’ve searched for lucky furniture and décor to kick off the lunar new year. Lucky colours for rats are blue, gold and green.
We love blue, it’s no secret. As calming and serene as blue can be, we also love when it pops! Pairing navy blue with white really allows it to shine its best and therefore bringing good fortune to your home.
This gorgeous giclée print evokes memories of winter afternoons where we cozy inside instead of venturing out into the cold. You can just imagine peering through the frosty window and having a warm cup of tea in hand.
