Year of the Dragon

Today marks the first day of the Chinese Lunar New Year and the Year of the Dragon.  The legendary dragon is a symbol of good fortune, power and strength. 

The dragon is a regular motif found in Asian toile and chinoiserie fabrics and papers.  Although I adore classic chinoiserie, I love Osborne and Little's fresh design approach to this classic motif in their Chinese Dragon wallpaper.  It is so opulent and exotic, especially in the smoky amethyst and metallic colorway.
