Bring Luck Into Your Home With Finds Under P500
Get these decorative pieces in lucky colors for 2018 that are cute and affordable
Just last month, we celebrated the Year of the Earth Dog, which according to Chinese Astrology, is associated with the Earth element. Earth is one of the most stable of the five elements in the astrology chart as it balances them all of them together. And to make the Earth element even more effective, you have to pair it with Wood and Water elements.
With this in mind, the lucky colors of 2018 are mainly earthy tones of brown and beige, with the support of green (Wood), blue (Water), and yellow accents. This combination of shades and hues makes for a more stylish mix than the expected lucky color of red, and the whole lot works so much better in contemporary interiors.
But you don’t have to repaint, reupholster, or do a drastic makeover of your home. You simply have to incorporate these lucky colors into your space through home accessories. Scroll down for to see some auspicious (and affordable!) picks:
