Year of the Snake

Today is Chinese New Year's and the Year of the Snake! 

The snake has traditionally been seen as a symbol of wisdom, wealth and longevity, but is considered less auspicious than other animals in the 12-year Chinese Zodiac such as the dragon. It is said to bestow mystery, intelligence and beauty on those born in a snake year. 

Here are some serpent and snakeskin inspirations for your house!
