Today is the first day of the Year of the Monkey. The exact date of the Lunar New Year changes every year but generally speaking, you’re a monkey if you were born in the years: 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, or after today in 2016! There is no shortage of events to celebrate Chinese New Year around the Bay Area, including the annual parade on February 20th (there was a little event called the Super Bowl that may have overshadowed festivities this year).
My family celebrates this event every year, and here at Revolving Decor, we’re honoring the new year with a look at inspiring ways to incorporate Chinese motifs and design into the home. Happy New Year!
