The Lunar New Year is traditionally the time to revamp your home decor. Red is always an auspicious color for the Chinese and for inspiration you can pop down to local brand Tequila Kola, one of Hong Kong's largest home stores.
Treat yourself to a Liza L-shaped sofa for HK$19, 600 or, if you think that's too much red, go for accent pieces such as luxury bed linen for HK$1,900 or Riedel plates for HK$390.
Alternatively, brighten up your home with some lucky candles - literally. Luck (fook) is one of the most popular Chinese characters. It's usually stuck upside down as that means "luck has arrived" - the character for "upside down" (dao) sounds the same as the character for "arrived."
The Candle Company has got rose- scented candles in the shape of fook (HK$99) you can place at home to ensure good fortune will arrive soon.
Another Chinese tradition is the dragon dance, performed to scare away evil spirits. If you can't afford your own dance troupe, grab a dragon head candle (also HK$99) - it serves the same function.
