Happy Chinese New Year! This year is the year of the Horse, part of a 12-year cycle of animals comprising the Chinese Zodiac. Each Lunar New Year is linked to an animal sign and according to Chinese belief, the horse signifies fortune, communication, fame, finance and success.
This much loved animal has been an integral part of American decorating for centuries and we are excited to see the horse highlighted in 2014! It’s fun to see cultures brought together through symbolism and tradition. We have a number of equestrian themed items at The Well Appointed House – click here to view them. Don’t you just love this Colette by Sandberg horse wallpaper? I found these photos of it in black, blue and brown. It’s totally fun, especially for a family that’s into riding. It is especially cute in the nursery!
The wallpaper is great for a tack room!
This is a soft Lewis and Wood wallpaper from England:
