Most of us have read a little into our star sign personality. Virgos are notoriously stubborn, cancers get emotional when you show up late and scorpios… well, we all know to stay away from scorpios.
Since these are all defining characteristics, and ones that trickle into the way we live our lives, build our careers and maintain relationships, how do these traits show up in our homes?
Let’s say you’re an earth sign, does this mean you should should surround yourself in warm, earthy tones and natural fabrics? It just might!
As our star signs shed light on the natural instincts we have and how we intrinsically respond to emotions and situations, it’s a link to how we’ll respond to an environment.
Capricorn star sign personality: Modern Contemporary, Scandinavian
(22nd December-19th January)
Capricorns are the disciplined type, looking before they leap and using logic to make their decisions. So if you thought of sleek and structured design, who’d you think of? The Scandinavians of course! Blending purpose with beauty, they create functional pieces that would suit this star sign personality perfectly!
Aquarius star sign personality : Bamboo, Rattan
(20th January-18th February)
Aquarius is an air sign, despite having “aqua” in its name. This star sign’s symbol is that of the water bearer, who gives life to the land through water healing. What that means is that an Aquarius decorator will care about where the materials are coming from and what kind of natural textures are being used.
Try rattan furniture, like living room chairs, or jute to cover cupboards and give rooms a little depth.
Pisces star sign personality: Byron Bay Coastal Charm
(19th February-20th March)
Pisces are usually bound by two opposing traits—on one side is the rational and wise, and on the other, the creative, imaginative romantic. Represented by two fish, Pisces is a water sign, and uplifted by symbols of water and soft curves. Think of light blue elements, perhaps wallpaper and art. Throw in some printed blue blankets for that extra comfy feel.
Aries star sign personality: Retro
(21st March-19th April)
The aeries personality is positive, bold and playful. They don’t play by the rules and have the confidence to venture into any situation and succeed. What’s a fun way to add character and colour of an aeries into a space? With retro-vintage finds.
From the rugs to the wall paint and bright furniture, a 70s feel will make an aeries feel right at home. Check out local flea markets for inspiration!
Taurus star sign personality: Country Western
(20th April-20th May)
When we mentioned earthy Taureans earlier, we weren’t kidding. They really have their feet on the ground as a practical and determined sign. They surroundings should be soothing and reminiscent of the purity of the outdoors. Think boho prints, warm hues and lots of plants.
Gemini star sign personality: Modern
(21st May-20th June)
The star sign personality of a Gemini is one of versatility. They handle many tasks throughout the day, often pursuing professional, social and internal avenues all at once. What these signs need is a clean, modern space to do it all in. A Gemini’s idea decorations include a smart home system and a little luxury.
Cancer star sign personality: Countryside Cottage
(21st June-22nd July)
As with crabs, who represent cancers, this star sign relies on its home (or shell) to feel protected. They are sensitive creatures who are sensitive to the energies and environment around them.
When we picture a comfortable Cancerian, they’re in a country home, with wood elements, gentle, neutral tones and perhaps even a working fireplace.
Leo star sign personality: Bold Energy
(23rd July-22nd August)
Leo, the loud and proud lion. If you’re a Leo, you’re probably a confident person who doesn’t mind being in the limelight. Leos are bold, just like lions, and aren’t afraid of being daring with their living spaces. Allow yours to come alive and reflect an animal side with bright patterns, eclectic wall art and clashing wall paper and prints.
Virgo star sign personality: Complementary Tones
(23rd August-22nd September)
Virgos are organised and strategic. They find a suitable place for everything in their lives whether it’s a person, kitchen accessory or even a candle in the bathroom. Because they think of elements that come together and work as a system, playing with tones would be ideal for them.
Experimenting within the same colour, they can create a room of complementing hues that looks elegant and beautiful.
Libra star sign personality = Light Pastels
(23rd September-22nd October)
Libras are all about balance, hence the scale as their symbol. What Libras naturally attune with in life is a sense of harmony. So it’s our guess that if a Libra created a space with cool, light, pastel colours, they’d feel at peace.
This star sign personality can also look at symmetry, matching levels of objects and furniture in a room for maximum good vibes.
Scorpio star sign personality: Edgy
(23rd October-21 November)
Scorpios often get a bad rap (see intro above) for being prickly. In reality, they’re just misunderstood. Yes, they’re mysterious. Yes, they are strong. But they are also passionate, focused creatures.
A great example of a Scorpion home would have an industrial style—dark features and furniture, and something stark like a statement lighting element to bring it all together.
Saggitarius star sign personality = Warm & Cosy
(22nd November-21st December)
The star sign personality of a Sagittarius is exemplified by the archer; a curious individual, seeing knowledge as conquest. So the spaces in a Sagittarian home should be all about adventure. From remnants of your travels to books and magazines. When you can’t venture out, your environment can be a place you can continue learning.
