All of us strive to have our own serene spaces and hope that our homes become that space. However, it’s quite hard to explain why sometimes, we just can't get that magical feeling that we long for. For most people, transforming a house into a haven that exudes serenity and relaxation can be very challenging. Even picking the right color of paint poses a challenge. Furthermore, the type of décor and furniture complicates the choice even more. Fortunately, your birth chart can help you lessen the number of trials and errors by providing signs about the things that will best complement your innermost design sensibilities.
According to astrologer Rebecca Gordon, the stars have something to say about the finishes, furnishings, and other hues that can distinguish you from others. Your sun sign represents your traits and other quirks that you often neglect when it comes to choosing home decors. If you’re fed up with mixing and matching and failing over and over again, perhaps you might consider what your birth chart tells you about your true cosmic nature. Let the stars guide you as you build your castle, where there is no boss but you.
Aries - The Bold Home
Ruled by the planet Mars, Aries are naturally active and fiery. Your strongest qualities are your confidence and you always want to feel the action. Something that evokes power appeals to you and you find it easy to express yourself in a place that elicits the same atmosphere. According to Gordon, you need a home with bold interior designs. The most compatible colors are red, hot pink, gold, orange, and palette.
Ophira Edut, another astrologer from AstroTwins, added that an Aries person is naturally competitive. It is the reason why you would always seek a vibrant home where you feel alive. You want others to feel your intensity the moment they walk inside your home. You are the first sign in the zodiac; you are likely to reach the finish line first compared to others. It means that you’ll feel the urge to switch up your décor whenever new trends emerge. However, she also said that your thirst for something new can be cumbersome. Instead of remodeling, Ophira suggests that you create a smaller space in your home that’s easy to transform. It can be a mudroom, a workshop, or an outdoor garden.
Taurus - The Comfortable Home
Born under the sign of the bull, Gordon explains that Tauruses can easily get caught between two extremes. Because of your earth sign, you can either fall for feminine pastel shades of pink and blue or you’ll prefer deep colors like blues, greens, and browns. Whenever you’re in doubt, Gordon says that you’ll never go wrong in settling with a color palette with dominant off-whites or creams. Flower patterns also appeal to you, so complementing the color with pillows, rugs, and throws with the same subtle hints of colors would be a nice move.
You love to boast your sophisticated style so you have this inclination to check high-end furniture and goods. However, you won’t make a purchase unless you feel it’s practical to do so. Also, because you feel this constant tie to your ruling planet, getting heavy and square-ish pieces of furniture that are low to the ground will provide you with the sense of rootedness you’re looking for.
Gemini - The Vibrant Home
Youthful, lively, and flirtatious, nothing would appeal better to Geminis than colors and decors that evoke vibrancy and strong mental energy. According to Gordon, you always love the challenge of combining the old with the new. You also love to mix up prints and you’re pretty good at it. Since you’re naturally moody and you have unrivaled curiosity, your home must evoke variety. Your keys for social designs lay in the colors of green, lime green, orange, chartreuse, and canary.
Since you’re always up to the idea of experimenting, mixing modern with vintage, astrologer Edut suggests you choose lightweight furniture that can be moved easily. You have an ever-changing mood which can cause impromptu switching from time to time. She also added to consider brushed metal fixtures, transparent Lucite chairs, and subway tiles as these can help you turn your contrasting tastes work to your advantage.
Cancer - The Safe Home
Cancers love the feeling of being outdoors. However, you always consider your home as your safe haven when your vibrant energy runs out. It is the reason why you tend to seek balance in your living area. According to your natal chart, the key to ensure your haven will evoke the peace you crave is by settling on soft colors like whites, lavenders, silvers, Wedgewood blues, and vintage pastels. Contrasting bold colors can easily interrupt your serenity.
As a water sign, you are really sensitive, so astrologers suggest having a cozy central theme at the forefront of every room in your home. You can do this by having candles that can illuminate the way and exude a soothing experience. You can also add silver accents, shades of white, furry rugs, and distressed woods. To complete the setup, you can also add moonflowers at the door. Since Cancers are naturally welcoming, this décor can help you express your warmest welcome to your family and friends.
Leo - The Royal Home
Leos are ruled by the dazzling star at the center of the solar system, which is the sun. Your ruling sign shines brightly on the others which means you always want to have a warm atmosphere in your home. According to Gordon, Leos are the happiest when they see their homes as a playful haven for everyone. With your self-expressing nature, you always crave to be the center of attention. Since you love to be in the limelight, astrologers agreed that having masks, wall hangings, and other dynamic pieces in your home will help you express more of your true personality.
Leos, like a lion and his den, want to show the world that their pride is inside their homes. It means that luxurious furniture and other things with high-price tags appeal to you more than anyone else. You always love the bling and colors like gold, yellow, Bordeaux and rust can help you tell the world about your personal business.
Virgo - The Quiet Home
Virgos are known to keep their habitat quiet and peaceful. Whenever you’re at home, you are only after one thing – feel like you’re at home. Unlike most signs who dread to make their homes vibrant and playful, you lean towards classic white or cream color. You want it modest you like the color tones to be the same in every room as much as possible. Virgos also find neutral colors such as taupe, navy, ochre, and clean-linen white appealing, and would love to see a stark white wall complemented with window dressings that are of the same subtle color.
Because Virgos are grounded to the earth, Edut suggests creating a space in your home where you can relieve stress through reading, writing, or working out. You are confident regarding your talents and abilities, and DIY projects can easily catch your interest. However, according to your birth chart analysis, you always want to create something unique, so picking natural materials in your project can help you express your inherent talents.
Libra - The Welcoming Home
Libras value relationships more than anything else. It is the reason you crave a personal space that evokes grace, elegance, and softness. You want everything to feel warm, natural, and welcoming, so enforcing big furniture and having eye-catching colors would not appeal to you. You are more inclined to settle on colors like pale pinks, baby blues, lavenders, and grays.
Since you want everything to feel natural, you do not want to have a home where the furniture and decors are overtly organized. In your home, you want everyone to feel that it is a place open for communication and connection. A gorgeous dining table and great pieces of art can be of help according to your birth chart map. Moreover, having pairing furniture in your home can also express your nature of fostering relationships.
Scorpio - The Intimate Home
Scorpios are naturally sensual and mysterious. It is the reason why you get easily attracted to furniture and other objects that are plush and velvet. Colors such as black, plum, blood red, crimson, and Prussian blue also match your intense moods. At home, you want to feel intimacy and privacy. You tend to choose a thicker window covering and you want a single source of lighting to illuminate your space whenever you want to rest.
According to Gordon, your seductive nature can offer you versatility when it comes to designing your home. You want to create an atmosphere where everyone can feel they are surrounded by mystery. To achieve this, astrologers recommend having cleverly draped fabric, little nooks, and side tables with low lit lamps.
Sagittarius - The Adventurous Home
Sagittarius people are known for their love of the outdoors. You are a natural-born traveler which explains the longing to have a home that evokes a sense of freedom. You are prone to wanderlust and, as much as possible, you want your guests to feel that too whenever they walk in. Because of your interest in collecting things that reflect your love for travel such as passport stamps, considering furniture and décors with the colors red, rust, turquoise, green, and plum can help you mimic the places you’ve been to.
Because you seek a place that encourages adventure, you would feel more at home in a bungalow instead of a nest. Your hunger for travel can guide you when it comes to choosing your décor. Astrologers recommend tapestries against a vintage record player, floor pillows made from Turkish towels, and a book collection that covers African history and other interesting things such as astral projection.
Capricorn - The Traditional Home
Capricorn is known as the most responsible sign of the zodiac. Sometimes you wish you are as spontaneous as the other signs, however, your interest will always lean towards heirloom pieces and other traditional tones. You want to be surrounded by a minimal color palette that includes white, hunter green, navy, and oxblood.
For Capricorns, when it comes to decorations, less is more. You cannot be easily tempted by the latest trends. Instead, you would prefer some ageless workhorse objects. Since you have a refined taste, antique furniture and historical decors are some of your favorite things to see inside your home.
Aquarius - The Futuristic Home
Based on the birth chart wheel, anyone who falls under the Aquarius sun loves a cutting-edge design. You tend to pick electric color schemes which include silver, turquoise, violet, and electric blue. Instead of picking comfortable furniture, you would prefer those that can easily make a statement. You also want futuristic things inside your home such as steel and iridescent glass.
Aquariuses have vibrant energy when it comes to social settings. You want to make your space feels free-spirited, the kind that is always ready to welcome people from all walks of life. Having minimal belongings can help you achieve the vibe you crave. Also, your sign is the zodiac’s futurist. Hanging pieces, sculptural light fixtures, and draped silks can also be of help.
Pisces - The Peaceful Home
People born under the Pisces zodiac are naturally sensitive. This nature makes you feel the need to have a home with colors that make you feel at ease, such as light lavender, peach, gradient blue, sea-foam green, and silver. These color schemes reflect water, which complements this transcendent and dreamy sign in the zodiac. Pisces also feel comfort from things that mimic the elements found at the beach. Furniture and decors with pastels and pale colors can help you get the natural atmosphere you crave.
Gordon also added that Pisces people love tranquility. Anything that can make your home feel like a retreat center is highly recommended. Music can be a great central theme to pamper yourself as well. You always tend to meditate so having romantic chords and lyrics playing while you try to relax can be a perfect addition to your safe cocoon.
