How to decorate your home according to your zodiac sign and whether plants or bright colors will make you feel more relaxed
If you are wondering how to decorate your home and what interior style to choose, perhaps consider taking inspiration from the stars.
Luxury furniture brand The French bedroom company partnered with astrologer Eloise de The well-being foundry to shed light on the colors, features, and trends that will make you feel more relaxed, based on your sign’s personality traits.
December 22 – January 19
Capricorns aren’t driven by trends that come and go – on the contrary, they love traditional, cozy home decorations that stand the test of time.
Think large wardrobes, leather sofas, and cabinets full of crystal or the best porcelain – all that is practical, economical and reliable.
“A Capricorn will most likely splurge on one or two features to add to the rest of their home decor, rather than doing it all,” Eloise said.
A Capricorn will also be grateful for the time and effort that goes into making their furniture and will focus on that rather than the cost.
January 20 – February 18
Harmony and tranquility are key for the Aquarius among us, so lots of vibrant ocean hues, hand-painted details, and DIY accessories are ideal.
Artwork that provokes conversation should be hung on the walls, and as an air sign, rooms will be well ventilated, full of natural light, and provide plenty of space.
They may be unconventional, but Aquarians make sure the latest gadgets will fit into any design.
February 19 – March 20
It’s all about simplicity for a Pisces and making their home as relaxing as possible.
It can be done with aromas, plants, salt lamps, and furniture that have spiritual connections.
When it comes to colors, Pisces hate bold patterns, preferring neutral and earthy tones like peach and subtle pinks.
Eloise added, “They will have plush cushions, soft throws, and mood lighting to help them step into their fantasy world.”
March 21 – April 19
An Aries should avoid permanent installations in the house so that he can switch from one trend to another as he pleases.
Eloise pointed out, “This is because they take inspired action, so if the mood is right, they like to redecorate on a whim.”
Arians also love open spaces with vibrant textures and colors that energize them while respecting their energetic personality.
Motivational quotes will also be added to it, or an acknowledgment of their success – but in a tasteful, not tacky way.
April 20 – May 20
It is all about romance in the house of a Taurus and focusing on the wonder of all who visit.
Think creams, soft pinks, coppers and gold as well as stylish accessories that set the mood of perfection they crave.
Taureans want comfort to be at the heart of all their interiors, so they will have soft silks, velvets and cashmere everywhere to provide the softest touch.
Sophisticated French opulence made up of sumptuous furnishings will make the most comfortable of homes, as will mirrors and chandeliers.
Eloise added that someone who is Taurus likes to please their senses, so expect scented candles and fresh flowers.
May 21 – June 20
With an open mind, a Gemini likes to experiment as much as possible, which leads them to not have a distinct style when it comes to their interior.
They’ll gather everything they love in one place and fill their home with vibrantly colored wall hangings, knick knacks and prints – so that anything goes, really.
As Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of technology, they must have the latest gadgets – it will put them at ease.
However, this can lead to cluttered rooms with a lot of personal belongings, so be sure to keep some space free.
June 21 – July 22
Creating a safe space is essential for Cancers. Eloise said that a nice, cozy decor, a comfy sofa, and plenty of cushions in their living room are what will help achieve this.
They appreciate every little detail and it will also show how clean they keep their home.
When designing their home, a Cancer will choose neutral colors combined with small pieces of silver, light pink, and blue with photos of loved ones scattered all over the place.
July 23 – August 22
Lions are loud, so their home will reflect that.
A Leo will show their enjoyment for the good things with their interior, so expect some bold elements including oversized furniture and bright colors.
Lions find it extremely difficult to resist the things they want, so they will buy plenty of oversized cushions and large sofas or beds in bright colors and made from plush fabrics.
Even a chandelier or a huge mirror wouldn’t be out of place in a Lions house, as they don’t mind having a taste of luxury.
Leos also love to be remembered for their opulence and hospitality, they want guests to be jealous when they leave their homes – and they could very well be.
August 23 – September 22
A simple, organized home will put a Virgo at ease, and the colors seen in their homes will create a sense of calm – think earthy tones.
While it’s certainly satisfying to watch, it might not be the most comfortable home to sit in.
Hardwood floors are likely to replace rugs to avoid dreaded stains – plus Virgos want minimalist features and a consistent theme throughout.
Minimalist artwork and a beautifully designed lamp or coffee table will likely take center stage – and the interior will certainly impress.
September 23 – October 22
Libras want a balance of elegance and tranquility in their home, but also love expensive features.
Pairing unconventional elements such as chandelier lamps on recycled tables or fresh flowers in antique vases works well.
Eloise said, “Libras understand the magic of a well-placed vase or rug and have an uncanny ability to make an elegant masterpiece out of anything.”
Their home will be peaceful with elegant mirrors, cushions, and romantic paintings and prints, while the colors will likely be champagne pink, lilac, and light gray.
October 23 – November 21
The House of Scorpios will reflect their honesty and self-awareness by not being involved in any fashion trends.
They are generally drawn to mid-century Gothic and industrial architecture, so expect a lot of that in the house.
This theme will be supported by dark colors like emerald green and plum purple as well as textures of fur, silk and wood.
November 22 – December 21
Being adventurous, a Sagittarius will have everything they love on display, and since they are avid travelers, this will include bits and pieces from most of the places they have visited.
Their walls will feature maps of foreign lands alongside artifacts, memorabilia, and postcards – with the aim of showing it all.
Despite a style that is difficult to define, a Sagittarius will be attracted by natural materials and sober colors.
Eloise said, “A Sagittarius is infinitely curious and roaming forever, so they’re likely to mix things up on a regular basis.”
Co-founder and Creative Director at The French bedroom company, Georgia Metcalfe, said, “It’s fascinating to see how our astrological sign can play such a key role in our style choices. The small but significant differences between each allow us to express ourselves honestly and authentically.
“Choosing the right interiors in the home requires special care, we always recommend investing in rooms that make you smile and maybe listening to your zodiac sign traits will make our homes a happier place.
“As a Cancer, my house is filled with family photos and knickknacks, in romantic, feminine French frames.”
