Chinese Astrology Meets Home Design – The Dragon

Discover more about the Chinese horoscope sign – the Dragon. Personality traits of these creative people, favorite home designs and locations, indoor and outdoor decorating styles, colors, a flower, lifestyle, and occupations. 


Chinese astrology is more than 2,000 years old and as such is one of the most ancient Chinese philosophies.



This ancient zodiac consists of a 12-year cycle. Each of the years is ruled by a different zodiac sign (The Rat, The Ox, The Tiger, The Rabbit, The Dragon, The Snake, The Horse, The Goat, The Monkey, The Rooster, The Dog, The Pig).



Therefore, in China, there is a belief that the year of birth influences one’s personality, success, happiness, luck, as well as the appearance of one’s home.


The Dragon

The attractive and charismatic Dragons are often in the company of friends from all over the world since they love to travel and explore the world. As a matter of fact, an astronaut and a photojournalist are among the typical occupations for Dragons.



Dragons prefer modern houses and apartments situated near the sea, in order to be able to relax with the sound of the waves. Also, they often choose a houseboat or a sailboat as a home.



Simplicity, straight lines, and open spaces are the main design features of the interior in which the members of this mythological sign feel at home.



Aquamarine, yellow and black are the colors associated with the intelligent and strong Dragon. Lotus is the flower of this spring sign.



An architect and an artist are among the typical professions for Dragons, so, no wonder that the members of this artistic sign love to redecorate their home as frequently as possible – in order to keep boredom at bay, but also as a way of expressing their creativity.

They also find pleasure in preparing culinary delights, especially those of international character.
