January 23rd 2012 marks the beginning of another Chinese year, the year of the Dragon.
The dragon is an important symbol in Chinese culture, with the five-clawed dragon being the most powerful, and therefore being a symbol belonging strictly to the emperor. If you were born in 2000, 1988, 1976, 1964, 1952, 1940, or 1928 then you were born in the year of the Dragon.
The year of the Dragon and the people born into them are characterized by energy, vitality, unpredictability and excitement. The year of the dragon is also typified by good fortunes and money is easier made (and lost). So let’s enjoy it and make this year a good one!!
Keeping with the theme the following hand painted Asian inspired designer wallpaper is the most exquisite and luxuries range fit for an emperor (or an empires, as in our case ladies). I dream of one day wallpapering my dining room using this range.
