Home Design Ideas...According to Your Zodiac Sign!
Aquarius: Jan. 20–Feb. 18
If you're an Aquarius -- one of the three air signs -- chances are that you have a reserved, quiet side that you need to indulge from time to time. What better place to regroup and spend a few minutes alone than a tranquil water garden? Next time you're doing landscaping, consider adding a water feature to your yard.
Blue and Gray Hues
Lucky colors associated with the Aquarius sign include calm, serene hues like blues and grays. You can incorporate these colors into your living room (or really any other room) through a new wall color, a chic couch or even a few accent decorations.
Simple, Open Spaces
As an Aquarius, you may often feel limited or constrained both physically and mentally. Embrace a minimalistic design aesthetic to make your home feel more open and spacious.
Pisces: Feb. 19–March 20
Pisces, who are born in late February and early March, will find peace when they're surrounded by shades of purple. Even if you're not ready to paint your walls such a vibrant hue, it's easy to incorporate shades of violet, plum or lavender into your dining room decor through fun plates, centerpieces or tablecloths.
Room for Socializing
People born under the Pisces sign are notoriously outgoing, so you'll want a welcoming sitting room where you can host all your friends. Invest in an L-shaped couch so you can comfortably seat several people and keep conversation flowing.
Pisces is an intuitive, free-spirited zodiac sign, so chances are you won't always want to follow the traditional rules of decorating. Embrace your intuition and a more eclectic style of decor -- chances are that it will all fall together and create a space that's as unique as you are.
Aries: March 21–April 19
People born between March 21 and April 19 are Aries -- a fire sign that values experience over material goods. As such, you'll probably be most comfortable in a minimalistic, functional setting. Opt for a few decorations that you really like, and don't be afraid to leave blank spaces in your home.
If you're an Aries, chances are you love to explore and seek out adventure, whether it's through travel, sports or other competitions. You'll likely have a lot of memorabilia from your adventures, so why not display it in a fun gallery wall? Place the collection in your living room, in a hallway or even beside your stairs for your guests to see.
Aries is a fire sign if there ever was one! Your lively, passionate personality is aptly represented by the color red. You may not want a whole red room, as the bright hue can be a bit overwhelming, but you may find satisfaction by painting one accent wall your signature color.
Taurus: April 20–May 20
While those with the Taurus sign are known for being stubborn, they also have a softer side, which is reflected in the sign's lucky colors. Decorate your home with pinks and blues to embrace your romantic side and bring a bit of softness into your home.
Throw Pillows and Blankets
No Taurus's home is complete without ample soft throw pillows and blankets. This zodiac sign is known for placing importance on tactile feelings, so you can't go wrong by seeking out textured accents for your home.
Tauruses are known for having green thumbs and being comfortable in the kitchen, so indulge your favorite pastimes by planting your own herb garden -- either in a window box, on your kitchen counter or outside in your garden. You'll be able to cultivate plants while growing fresh ingredients to spruce up your meals.
Gemini: May 21–June 20
Those born between May 21 and June 20 often have two different sides to their personality. This can pose a bit of a challenge when it comes to decorating, but if there's one thing a Gemini loves, it's learning! Bring plenty of bookcases into your home, and if you can, carve out space for a home office that's dedicated to reading, writing and furthering your knowledge.
Stark contrast is especially appropriate in the home of Geminis, given their seemingly dual personalities. Since this sign's lucky colors are green and yellow, you might consider working some lively plants and yellow accents into your home's central spaces. Keep things from getting too dramatic by using neutral wall colors and furnishings.
Open Dining Space
Communication is important for Geminis, especially when it comes to their family. Invest in a dining room table that your whole household can sit around, and ensure there are minimal distractions in the room. This will allow you to sustain the meaningful conversation you crave.
Cancer: June 21–July 22
Some signs may love bold colors, but those born under Cancer will do well with lots of white in their homes. If you're looking to switch up your walls, opt for a pure, clean hue and decorate with light orange accents for a warm, welcoming environment.
Cancer is an especially emotional and sensitive sign, and you'll likely find comfort in seeing special memorabilia displayed prominently around your house. Consider installing shelves around your home where you can display sentimental pictures and items.
Those born in late June or early July often enjoy relaxing in or near water. Even if you don't have room for a pool at your home or apartment, you can add a little bit of calming water to your outdoor space with a quaint fountain.
Leo: July 23–Aug. 22
Leo -- the iconic lion of the zodiac -- is a notoriously cheerful and warmhearted sign, and Leos' homes should reflect this. If you have the space, consider a fireplace or wood stove in your living room. It's the perfect warm, welcoming centerpiece for your gatherings, and a mantel is a great place to display your many trophies, as Leos are often fierce competitors.
Warm Color Schemes
Warm colors mixed with white backgrounds are perfect for Leo. Choose reds, oranges or yellows as you decorate your home -- you'll love bathing in the warm, happy atmosphere.
If you were born under this sign, chances are you have modern, trendy and sometimes expensive taste. Look for furniture with clean, sleek lines when you're decorating your home, but don't think you have to splurge to get quality modern furniture -- you can find stylish and affordable modern pieces if you know where to look.
Virgo: Aug. 23–Sept. 22
Virgo is an earth sign, and those who are born in late August to mid-September will find themselves most at ease when surrounded by calming earth tones. Use greens, browns and whites to decorate your home.
Unique Organization Systems
Virgos like to have everything in its place, so you'll benefit from a thorough organization system. However, that doesn't have to mean unsightly filing cabinets. Come up with a cute organization method that complements your decor while still keeping your home tidy.
Designated Play Space
Virgos often have an "all work, no play" attitude, but it's good to let yourself kick back and have fun sometimes. Carve out some "play" space in your home where you and your family can relax and do what you love, whether it's reading, art, puzzles, movies or anything else.
Libra: Sept. 23–Oct. 22
Libras love to socialize in big groups, so you'll need a large area for entertaining in your home. Whether it's a spacious living room or a big dining room table, make sure you have a place in your house where you can accommodate several guests.
A Bold Piece of Art
Not sure what to put on your walls? Libras are purveyors of fine art, so pick one piece that you really love and use it as the focus of your room. Arrange your furniture around that special painting or sculpture to show off your impeccable taste.
Peaceful Wall Colors
Given that Libras hate discord, it's appropriate that their lucky colors are peaceful shades of blue and green. Incorporate these soothing shades into your home to promote a harmonious atmosphere.
Scorpio: Oct. 23–Nov. 22
Showy or cluttered decor won't work well for Scorpios, who are born in late October to early November. Instead, you'll want a more refined, subtle style, including classic neutral furniture and minimalistic decorations.
Pops of Red
Amid your sophisticated decor, include pops of rust or red-orange for a bit of flair. These colors represent your passion and determination and will invigorate you each day.
As a Scorpio, you'll feel most fulfilled if your decor has meaning and depth. Don't settle for generic artwork -- take the time to search for decorations that really speak to you and make you think.
