Chinese New Year celebration begins on January 23rd – which is the night of the New Moon.  The Chinese calendar is Lunar based as opposed to the Solar calendar we use in the West.  Gung Hay Fat Choy as we welcome the year of the Water Dragon. They have some wonderful traditions during the two weeks leading up to New Years.  You can read more about these traditions, Feng Shui and Chinese astrology – on my teacher’s website, Feng Shui Master Marlyna Los FengShuiConsulting.info.

Vibrant and fun, the Chinoiserie fabric on the blinds was the jumping off point for everything in this room by Amanda Nisbet.

What an intriguing mix!  Don’t you just want to meet the people who live here and find out about their travels?  Great accessories on the table and the garden stool.

This room is rich and layered with the mix of the Chinese cabinet, screen and coffee table with the other antiques.  Variety makes this room so interesting and it is all brought together with the colour palette of Chinese red with the black and cream.
