Pre-lockdown, I’d never really given my horoscope a second thought. Sure, I was aware of a few of my own Gemini tendencies (I’m constantly flitting between different tasks, I’m painfully indecisive and I’m a bit hesitant when it comes to love) – but I’d never really spent any time considering how my star sign might impact my working from home style or my career. That was, until, lockdown hit. We’ve had a whole lot more time on our hands – and while some have spent the hours completing Netflix/walking ’til they can’t walk no more, I’ve been knee-deep in zodiac research. Even trialing my horoscope hairstyle (trivial but fun).
Alongside my growing interest in horoscopes, an eager obsession with home styling has also developed. So it seemed only obvious to delve into the link between star signs at home decor styles. If you’re in need of a bit of inspiration when it comes to decorating your home, you’re in luck. We’ve analysed each and every star sign, considered their personality traits and compiled a complete guide to the best interior style for your Zodiac sign. Do our predictions ring true?
ARIES = Retro
(21st March-19th April)
Aries girls are courageous, determined, optimistic and enthusiastic, diving head-first into even the most challenging of situations. When it comes to fashion and hairstyle choices, they can pull off the edgy and playful with ease. Just like you, Retro-inspired interiors add charm and character to otherwise nondescript spaces. Consider decorating with hand-me-downs or vintage finds from your local flea market, plus plenty of bright colours.
TAURUS = Southwestern
(20th April-20th May)
Practical, determined, steady and grounded, Taureans enjoy relaxing in serene and soothing environments, surrounded by rich colours and earthy scents. Southwestern interiors are your perfect match.
GEMINI = Contemporary
(21st May-20th June)
Adaptable, curious and with the ability to learn quickly, Geminis are interested in so many pursuits that they often find themselves wishing they could clone themselves. The Gemini gal’s perfect interior style is open-plan and contemporary: ideal for flitting between different tasks during the day and entertaining your flirtatious side with friends at night. Your home is adorned with luxurious touches and smart controls. Anything to help you work faster.
CANCER = English Country Home
(21st June-22nd July)
Sensitive, intuitive, loyal and compassionate, Cancerian’s are emotionally turned on and have an innate ability to pick up on the energy of others. Just like you, a traditionally English country home interior is laidback, warm and approachable.
LEO = Maximalist Energy
(23rd July-22nd August)
The life and soul of the party, Leos are confident: the kings and queens of the celestial jungle. They like to make a party out of *everything* (and don’t mind being the centre of attention when they do). As such, bold and bright interiors are your jam. Think statement wall art, vibrant colours and clashing prints. More is more.
VIRGO = Tonal
(23rd August-22nd September)
Take a trip to H&M Home, ‘cos tonal luxury is your interior style match. You’re hardworking, creative, detail-oriented and perfectly put-together. Luxurious, tonal interiors speak to your considered and systematic approach to life – and your deep-rooted presence in the material world.
LIBRA = Pretty Pastels
(23rd September-22nd October)
Libra is an air sign represented by scales. Thus, Libras have a fixation on balance and harmony. Not only is your home symmetrical at every turn (mismatched bedside tables would make you squirm), but a pretty pastel colour palette speaks to your gracious, kind and sociable personality.
SCORPIO = Industrial
(23rd October-21 November)
Focused, passionate, brave and mysterious, Scoprios are sometimes misunderstood. Encompassing exposed brickwork, statement lighting and a dark colour palette, the industrial interior style is strong, resourceful and resilient – just like you.
SAGITARIUS = Compact & Cosy
(22nd November-21st December)
Represented by the archer, Sagittarians are always on a quest for knowledge. During the small amounts of time at home (thanks to the fact that you’re spontaneous and always up for an adventure), your space is cosy, compact and littered with books and magazines. Order of the day = nestle yourself under a blanket then read, learn, read.
CAPRICORN = Scandi-Chic
(22nd December-19th January)
Loyal, disciplined and self-controlled, Capricorns make considered choices – taking things at their own pace. Exceptional managers, they’re skilled at navigating both the material and emotional realms. Similarly, Scandinavian interiors are purposeful, sleek and ordered. Just like you, they’re timeless while still offering style kudos in abundance.
AQUARIUS = Rattan
(20th January-18th February)
Aquarius is represented by the water bearer, the mystical healer who bestows life upon the land. Progressive and humanitarian, Aquarius girls care about the world around them. They’re introspective, seldom seeking validation from others and instead sticking by their own moral compass. Rattan interiors are eclectic, eco-friendly and all natural – just like you.
PICSES = Coastal
(19th February-20th March)
This air sign is symbolised by two fish swimming in opposite directions, representing the constant division of Pisces’ attention between fantasy and reality. You might be wise and intuitive, but you’re artistic and romantic, too. Coastal interiors are graceful, powerful and reminiscent of the merging of fantasy and reality that happens in the ocean. Think cool blue hues and blankets aplenty.
