Lucky Color Brown
Aiming to be the best? Then you must be born in the Year of the Rabbit, Dragon and Rooster. As brown symbolizes a sense of establishment and is hard-working.
2019 is the year for you to strive as well as flourish your home with dried flowers. There has been a resurgence of dried flowers now as home decor as it gives a more aesthetic vibe to it.
It may be intimidating however opt for low-maintenance varieties such as eucalyptus, tallow berry and cotton when curating your dried arrangement. Just get a nice clear vase and pop those dried flowers in and place them on the shelves or mantel.
Lucky Color Pink
Pink is not a common color amongst the Chinese culture however it symbolizes love. So love is in the air for those born in the Year of the Ox, Rabbit ad Horse.
Pink flowers comes in various shades and tints, so there’s no rule saying that you can’t stick with one. But I’d go for Vanda Miss Joaquim, which is Singapore’s national flower as well. You’d probably seen in somewhere in Botanic Gardens or few spots around Singapore.
Here’s wishing every a prosperous Chinese New Year ahead!
