Year of the Dragon

It’s the Year of the Dragon, the greatest of the Zodiac, according to the Chinese calendar.   In Chinese culture, the dragon is highly respected since it is seen as a symbol of  power and luck.   The dragon comes along every twelve years, bringing believers good luck, good fortune, and good health.  People born under the Dragon zodiac are uninhibited.  They tend to have lots of energy and have extreme ambition, thus successful.  No matter your style, get inspired with these red rooms and dragon designs.  Happy Chinese New Year.

    I love the dragon wallpaper — somehow both modern and traditional at the same time.
