From Aries to Pisces, how to decorate your bedroom based on your star sign
Whether you’re a Virgo or a Scorpio, depending on your star sign, it is likely your home’s interior isn’t decorated best to suit your zodiac.
Richard Petrie, interiors expert for window furnishings company www.thomas-sanderson.co.uk, has put together a guide on how you should decorate your bedroom based on your star sign.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
A well-kept secret about Aries is that they are homebodies and love making their home space as comfortable and personal as possible. When decorating their bedroom Aries should have personalised art and prints on the walls. Typically, Aries like to make the bed the focal point of the room so a large glamorous headboard is important for making it feel more at home. As a fire sign, Aries should use colours like red, which is the colour of their planetary ruler and best suits their ‘go-getter' personality.
Taurus (April 20- May 20)
A Taurus home has a place for everything. The bedroom of a Taurus should be comfortable, cosy, and romantic but should still have a clean aesthetic. As an Earth sign, they should include pastels, light shades of neutral tones, and soft gentle patterns, reminding a Taurus to stay grounded and connect with the Earth. They should feel like they’re sleeping in a paradise so keeping items organized and in containers is important.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
As this sign is symbolised by twins Geminis should display things in pairs, which will bring this sign’s energy into the room. Typically, Gemini craves variety and often cannot settle on a specific style for too long. To ensure you can change up your bedroom style when necessary paint the walls white and incorporate pops of colour through eclectic prints and accessories. The ideal Gemini bedroom is a feast for the senses so think feather pillows, natural rugs and velvet blankets.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
This zodiac sign is most associated with hospitality, so as soon as you enter a Cancer-curated space you feel right at home. The moon rules this sign so any colours that reflect like the moon does are welcome in a Cancer’s bedroom. Cancers want the bedroom to feel like a sanctuary so choosing the right furnishings is essential. Think irresistibly fluffy duvets with top-notch bedding with high thread-count sheets. Throw in faux-fur blankets and pillows for extra softness too. Choosing the right window dressings for curtains is necessary, blackout blinds for a good night’s sleep and privacy combined with sheer white curtains to enjoy the morning light.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
As this sign is a child of the sun Leos are drawn to bright, dramatic sunny colours. Leos are fiery and royal and their homes should reflect this too. A typical Leo will love to decorate their home in beautiful art. Their bedroom will be cosy but still include their love of vibrant, bold colours and regal taste. Leos also love plants, fresh flowers and oversized pieces so a large regal headboard is a perfect addition to any Leo’s bedroom.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Virgos aim for perfectionism more than any other sign their home is clean, orderly and Zen-like. In a Virgo’s bedroom, everything will be practical and serve a purpose so will stay away from useless things that seem to become clutter. Instead, Virgo’s should try decorating their room with framed pictures or memories that can hang on a wall and do not take up too much space. The room a Virgo sleeps in needs to feel relaxed so soft colours and green plants are a perfect combination.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Libras love balance so neutrals, greys, pastels and serene colours are necessary. Their favourite colour is blue which is the calmest of them all so should be incorporated in the bedroom either through painting one wall a deep blue or the use of accessories like bedding, curtains and art. Libras also love classic furniture so wooden bed frames and bedroom furniture will create the balance a Libra needs.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
For a Scorpio, a bedroom is a sacred place. Due to their spooky nature, dark colours are welcome as are images of animals and the moon. Everything in the bedroom should look tidy and elegant. Choose furniture that is soft and sensual and pair it with elegant textures such as velvet. Scorpios are obsessed with intimate areas so their bed should be gorgeous with luxury bedding, the rest of the space should be decorated with black prints and many candles.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Typically, a Sagittarius will have an unpredictable home, as fun is a priority for this sign. Sagittarius is defined by its fire element so a bedroom should have warm tones with furniture that has distinct edges. The perfect bedroom for a Sagittarius will inspire creativity however hold back on bright colours as more subdued colours will improve sleep. Overall, the room should be warm, cosy and friendly, which is full of blankets and natural decorative items like pottery and figurines, made of clay.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Capricorn is an earth element and is known for its practicality, good sense with money and longevity. They are not about fancy tricks or abstract measures and like to keep things organised, simple and elegant. The bedroom should be a place of relaxation so do not use a bed cover that is too patterned. Meaningful items and trinkets should be used for decoration and landscape photos will be a bonus. Capricorns want the bedroom to be quiet, comfortable and soothing so keep things dim and airy.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Aquarius types want their space to be unique, modern, artistic, bright and dynamic. This sign is deeply spiritual and wants a home to embrace empathy and open-mindedness. An Aquarius’ home is not a traditional space, it will challenge norms. As a bedroom is a more personal space, this allows an Aquarius to have more fun as the room is just for you. Stay away from earth tones and instead make things pretty with a vibrant bedspread. Opt for red and warm tones and incorporate more wood than metal. Opt for unusual wall art and hints of pink like a sunrise in winter.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
A Pisces home will be accommodating for a dreamer and all about creativity, hope, endings and new beginnings. Pisces is about reflection so having mirrors in your rooms and a bedroom with plenty of windows is key. Stick to cooler and calmer tones but stay away from colours that are too dark as this may make the room too passionate or depressing. As your mind needs to relax, stay away from busy walls. For extra decoration add plants that are in rounded pots.
