This is the year of the Rooster, and the most ‘huat’ colours for the year are gold, brown, and yellow. Due to their versatility, they can be applied throughout your home all year round. Here are some ideas on how you can inject these lucky colours into your interior to usher in the Rooster year (and more prosperity points too).
Elevate Your Home’s Elegance With Gold
Gold adds lots of character to the room. If you don’t want something elaborate like a golden chandelier, you can opt for a geometrical lamp accented in gold for a contemporary, elegant vibe.
Keep Things Simple With Brown
The kitchen is one of the best places to use brown. Being an earthy, wooden tone, brown lends your kitchen a rustic touch. Team your light walls and floor with brown kitchen cabinets for a tinge of modernity.

Brown also enhances the sophistication of a room, which makes it a great shade for your study rooms and home offices.
Perk Up The Space With Yellow
Yellow is a sunny shade. Tricky to pull off, but brilliant when you do. It’s also a gender-neutral colour, unlike blue or pink, so this will be good for expecting parents, as a yellow nursery or crib is perfect for a baby boy or girl!
BONUS: Enjoy A More ‘Huat’ Chinese New Year With Red
Red is the luckiest colour for all zodiac signs. It’ll look spectacular in the living room, especially if you have a spacious hall. A red sofa or some scarlet cushions will really make your space stand out.
Since it’s Chinese New Year, why not get a nice red lantern for the living room as well? You can keep it after the Chinese New Year season and recycle it for next year too.
And if you’re feeling adventurous, don’t be afraid to paint the walls red! A splash of bright scarlet will elevate the mood and atmosphere of your dull living room, giving it more character.
