From your must-haves to your must-avoids in terms of color, style, and accessories, we’ve covered all you need to know about injecting a little personal style based on your star sign, into your home.
March 21 – April 19
Ruling body: Mars
An Aries is full of energy and people are drawn to your fun, warm personality. Aries people aren’t afraid to try something new. You love to be out and about, so you prefer your home to be low maintenance.
Your interior design style is likely to be contemporary. Think hues of beige, white and black, combined with various modern textures.
The life of an Aries is constantly filled with social engagements, however those with this star sign are also lovers of their own space. To create a haven perfect for Aries, think open spaces, large sofas and beds and private areas to which they can retreat.
April 20 – May 20
Ruling body: Venus
Relaxing in style is what this sign does best, and as a sensual and tactile individual, touch is the most important of all their senses. Silks, velvets and cozy cashmere showcase the Taurus’ fine taste but also provide the comfort that is at the heart of all interior decisions this decadent personality makes.
Your interior design style is likely to be Traditional Luxe. Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty. Comfort, security, and a warm, peaceful environment are important to you. The best food and décor await behind the doors of a Taurus space.
May 21 – June 20
Ruling body: Mercury
You’re easy-breezy, a great communicator, and always on the hunt for new things. Gemini is also ruled by twins, meaning you have two very opposite sides to you, making you seem eclectic. You’re the one sign that can love traditional and modern at the same time while falling in love in an instant with the next design trend.
A Gemini’s changeable and open mind makes them creative and keen to communicate, and born with a wish to experience everything there is out there, a Gemini likes to submerge themselves and their home in memories and keepsakes. Every room in their home is different too; they have no distinct interior style but instead a collection of everything they love in one place.
Your interior design style is likely to be Eclectic. Gemini needs to be careful not to collect too much. Keeping a space clear will allow this indecisive sign to change up their home to their next desired style – which even they can’t keep up with.
June 21 – July 22
Ruling body: Moon
Cancers are the ultimate homebody. Your home is very important to you and it’s always cozy, comfortable, and unpretentious. People gravitate to you because of your soothing, nurturing personality.
Like crabs, who rely on their hard exterior for protection, the home of a Cancer is their safe sanctuary. Sensitive and caring deeply about matters of the family and their home, this star sign is drawn towards quaint and cozy interior styles made up of one-of-a-kind, mis-match finds.
Your interior design style is likely to be Traditional. Cancers have a great eye for spotting rare and well-desired reworked designs and antiques. When you step foot inside a Cancerian home, don’t be surprised to see photos of all of their loved ones too.
July 23 – August 22
Ruling body: Sun
The king (or queen) of the jungle, Leo is the life and soul of every party. Needing space to show off their indulgence in the finer things, a Leo designs their home as regal and as loud as themselves.
Expensive textiles and deep colors, and of course gold highlights wherever possible showcase this sign’s flashy but classy taste. There is nothing minimal or simplistic about a Leo’s life or their interiors. These natural born leaders can find it extremely difficult to resist the things they want, which, in the home, can include oversized cushions made using the most lavish fabrics and large sofas or beds in rich, statement colors
Your interior design style is likely to be Maximalist. You’re regal and you know it. You were born to shine and be the star of the zodiac. In fact, many Leos have wild hair or some attribute that sets them apart from the crowd. Your home is a reflection of you – unique, lavish, and eye-catching.
August 23 – September 22
Ruling body: Mercury
The efficient and practical Virgo needs their house to reflect their desire for organization and simplicity. Keeping their color palette neutral, earthy tones are loved by this sign as they allow them to feel calm and relaxed. However, for those willing to add a slight touch of color, peach, light blue, or olive green are common choices.
A Virgo’s design style is one of the minimalism qualities, avoiding mismatched or thrifted furniture which, to them, represent mess. Wooden or tiled flooring throughout also means their home can always be cleaned quickly, avoiding the antagonizing idea of a cream carpet turning mocha.
Your interior design style is likely to be Modern. You have an eye that notices every tiny detail. You need order, organization and cleanliness or you’ll go crazy. Because Virgos belong to the earth element, you prefer natural materials. People appreciate your helpful, practical personality and your need for harmony at home.
