You don’t have to be a Buddhist to appreciate the Buddha and interpret the symbol into your own beliefs. The Buddha, which means ‘awakened one’, is not only said to bring luck but calmness and positivity too. And who can deny that a Buddha statue does not add tons of character to any room?

Dragonflies are another symbol of good luck. There are several different ways you can incorporate this into the home. The easiest method is through fabric – i.e. a duvet cover, cushions, or curtains. However, hand-painted wall art is very much in fashion at the moment, so getting someone to paint a couple of dragonflies on your wall is another great idea. You can also find wall accessories and dragonfly wallpaper too.
