It's Chinese New Year and 2012 is the Year of the Dragon. Don't you remember looking at the paper place mats at Chinese restaurants seeing your birth year and what animal it was associated with? Mine was the rooster! In honor of Chinese New Year and the Year of the Dragon, I wanted to feature some dragon inspirations which most notably includes the infamous Schumacher Chiang Mai Dragon print which was derived from a 1920's Art Deco era block print, to Meissen's dragon place setting, to fun blue and white Chinoiserie wallpapers.
