The Home Decor Upgrade You Should Try, Based On Your Zodiac Sign
One of my favorite things to do is scroll through Instagram to look at some gorgeous apartments (read: townhouses that could fit a whole family). Not only are the apartments themselves amazing (hello, exposed brick!), but they all seem to have the perfect decor. So if you’re like me and you’re obsessed with beautiful home decor and want your home to look like the Pinterest board you’ve been curating since your college days, you might want to spruce up your space a bit. as you’re spring cleaning.
But you can’t really try out all the design trends you love without your home looking like a hodgepodge of different furniture and styles (unless you’re a Leo, more on that below). To get an idea of how to update your space, your zodiac sign might be the guide you need. After all, your sign can tell you all about who you are, and you really want your home to look like you. If this sounds like a daunting prospect, fear not. I did all the hard work for you. Here’s how to update your home based on your zodiac sign.
Aries: Add colors as bold and bright as you are
Aries are nothing if not bold, so bright colors will match your energy perfectly. Plus, the bright and neon colors will pop and add fun to your home, which is perfect for your youthful side. Start by adding colorful pillows and work your way up to a full Crayola house.
Taurus: adopt your outdoor side with natural materials
Nothing says “Bull” like lots of wood and natural materials. It’s almost like being outdoors, which is perfect for this earth sign. Bulls just love to relax and hang out at home, and the warm, natural colors are just plain cozy. Swap out your glass coffee table for a wooden table or even add a few plants to bring the outdoors inside.
Gemini: Make your space as versatile as you are
Geminis don’t like to commit to just one thing, so making sure your spaces do double duty is key. As an adaptable Gemini, your home should also be adaptable. You don’t have to choose between a bedroom and an office or a living room and a gym, just make your rooms multifunctional. Add a comfy loveseat to your bedroom to create a reading nook (or a place to scroll through TikTok), or dedicate a corner of your living room to your desk so you can separate your work time from your relaxation time. Items that can be used for other things, like an ottoman that can also be an extra chair, are also great.
Cancer: create the cozy space of your dreams
Cancers are homebodies, so you’ll need your home to be very comfortable if you’re going to spend most of your time there. Think fuzzy blankets, furry rugs and pillows, muted colors and dim lights. Your place will have a soothing and welcoming vibe to everyone you let into your sanctuary.
Leo: embrace maximalism
As a Leo, I can tell you from personal experience that when it comes to decorating, more is always more – more pillows, more patterns, more colors. Virtually nothing is off limits to Leos who want all the attention, and a room decorated from head to toe is sure to grab the attention of anyone who visits it. Plus, over-the-top styling, like chandeliers and fluffy pillows, screams Leo.
Virgo: Use earth tones to create a practical and comforting space
Earth tones are perfect for Virgos. Not only are Virgos Earth signs, but they’re also practical, so trendy furniture and colors don’t quite match their aesthetic. More natural colors that can go with anything, like beiges, creams, and grays, are great for you if you’re a Virgo.
Libra: Make sure your home is welcome-ready
Libras love to socialize, so why not set up your entertainment spaces so you can host your group of friends? Whether it’s your kitchen, dining room, or living room (or if you live in a small apartment, maybe all of the above), make your home feel welcome to your guests. . Liven up your dining room with fun chairs or add extra seating to your living room to accommodate all your friends.
Scorpio: Treat yourself to some privacy with separate spaces
Scorpios love their privacy, so an open floor plan is pretty much out of the question. But even if your home has more open space than you’d like, you can separate the areas so it feels less out in the open. If you live in a studio or loft, you can use a room divider to hide your bed so you don’t feel like people are intruding on your room when they come. Arrange your furniture to create separate spaces, like placing an end table next to your sofa to separate the living room from the kitchen.
Sagittarius: make a statement with wallpaper
Sagittarians love to have fun, and what could be more fun than a printed wallpaper? Adding bright wallpaper to your home will add energy to white walls. And if you rent, you can always try the removable wallpaper, perfect for Sagittarians who don’t like to be tied down. Plus, with the removable wallpaper, you can easily change your look if you get bored (which Sags tend to do).
Capricorn: Forget the trend and go for the traditional
Capricorns themselves are traditional and trends are not really their style. They like structure and rules, so a traditional decor is perfect. Capricorns also tend to be serious, so styles like bright colors or crazy wallpaper don’t exactly do it for them. Antiques, Persian rugs and rich colors will excite a Capricorn.
Aquarius: add antique furniture as unique as you are
Remember in Friends when Phoebe wanted all her furniture to be antique and not Pottery Barn? That’s Aquarius peak energy (and Phoebe happens to be Aquarius). Swap your generic coffee table for something with personality from Facebook Marketplace or your local flea markets and antique stores. You can even find vintage and antique furniture on Etsy.
Pisces: create a dreamy space with curved furniture
Curved furniture is soft and dreamy, which just happen to be perfect adjectives to describe a Pisces. A white curved couch that looks almost like a cloud suits a cloud-headed Pisces. Pisces are creative and imaginative, and curved pieces have a fashionable and unique feel.
