Chinese New Year: How to Bring Good Luck to Your Home
The new Chinese Year is being celebrated on Saturday 25th January 2020. This year is the Year of the Rat and for the Chinese they symbolise wealth, intelligence, success and wisdom. The lucky colours of the year 2020 are white and blue which coincide with Pantone’s colour of the year: Classic Blue. In feng shui, the lucky colours apply to both the colours you are wearing and the colours of your home’s interior design. Helen Green Design team has selected white and blue items that will attract luck, prosperity, and health to your home.
