Looking to decorate your space to match your personality? Look no further than the moon and the stars. Astrologers say each Zodiac sign has a color associated with it that brings out that sign’s best traits and personality. Whether Mercury is in retrograde or not, you can stay balanced by bringing your color into your home with these easy tips!
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Go bold or go home, Aries! You are known as being bold and assertive types that radiate passion and energy. It’s no surprise that your ruling planet is none other than “The Red Planet”; Mars. Bringing in red artwork into an otherwise neutral room creates an accent wall and focal point. Here, we have Modern Art by 5by5collective, and Never Know (red) by Loui Jover. Just like an Aries, your room will radiate boldness and demand attention.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
It’s time for you to be one with nature, Taurus. Growth and determination help you lead a life that is balanced with hard work and great rewards. Green reinforces your sign’s connection with nature; the lush pasture the Bull lives and thrives in. Green symbolizes new life and growth, especially in the Spring–further enhancing its connection to your sign. Think about decorating your space with imagery of lush plants and greenery. Here, we’ve combined Catherine Abel’s three Foliage prints to bring images of nature inside. These types of images will remind you to keep growing and thriving each day.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Like you Gemini, yellow is warm, bright and creative. Geminis are known for their curiosity and their ever growing intellect. Gemini’s symbol, “The Twins” (two personalities in one), is a nod to your social and outgoing behavior: usually making you the life of the party. Bringing yellow into your home not only lifts your spirits, it also promotes your ever growing thirst for knowledge by triggering curiosity. Here, we chose Ashvin Harrison’s Sunflower Dancer as our centerpiece, and flanked it with two Iris Scottabstracts. Yellow mimics the color of the Sun bringing out your warm and shining personality!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Just like a crab, Cancers are known for being tough on the outside and soft on the inside. Your ruling planet is the moon, which makes silver and white the perfect colors for you. As the most sensitive of the signs, you are known for absorbing peoples energies and emotions which can be daunting. White and silver symbolize purity and represent a clear slate, freeing you of the added energy and emotions you may have taken on during the day. Here we have grouped Abby Young’s two Silver Sunburst pieces and Radiant Silver canvasses. Coming home to a clean and neutral space can help you detox from the day and help you focus on your needs.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
The party doesn’t start till the Leo walks in! Ruled by the sun and fire elements, Leos are expressive, proud, a little dramatic, and always loyal. Your symbol, the Lion, is known as the “King of the Jungle” making it no surprise that you are moved by the color gold! Not only does gold emphasize your loyal and warm side, it also symbolizes royalty and class. We decided to pair Amanda Greenwood’s Lift Your Head Princess Crown Gold and Giulio Rossi’s Gold Leaf for their beautiful gold notes. Adding gold accented art pieces to your room will create a warm space that demands to be seen, just like you!
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You are a pure and classic group, Virgo! You are all about hard work, stability and productivity. You are quick to notice flaws, but that also means you are quick to help fix them. You are constantly growing and staying true to yourself and others. There is no surprise here that classic and natural colors like brown and green help to keep you grounded! A great place to bring these colors in would be into a home office. In this office, we selected these two enchanting, nature-inspired prints by SpaceFrogDesigns. Tree trunks are a great symbol of strength, stability and growth–they balance all their branches and never falter, just like you Virgo!
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Balanced and elegant. Those are two perfect words to describe you, Libra! As the symbol of balance, you represent the head and the heart–logic and feelings. Given your need for balance, there are two colors that we recommend for you: airy pinks and light blues. This Nature Magick print is just the right balance of peachy-pink and oceanic blues. These bring a balance to your room and your heart. The pale pink emits a sweet, loving presence, while cool blues provide clarity and balance. Sticking to ocean and sea imagery is also a good idea for you as the ocean is thought to be a symbol of stability.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
You’re a mystery to most Scorpio, and that’s just the way you like it! You are passionate and determined; you like to look beneath the surface of what’s right in front of you and dig deeper to find the real treasure hidden beneath. Scorpios like to focus on transformation: rebuilding themselves over and over again until they get to the “best” version. Blacksymbolizes the unknown depths you will visit to search for information as well as death and rebirth–a metaphor for enhancing your strength to let things go, and constantly strive to be a better you. To create a space that is not overwhelming with darkness, black accent pieces, like these prints by Artem Vasilenko and Shogun, will be a constant reminder to keep searching and transforming into your best self.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Shoot for the stars, Sagittarius! Your symbol of the Archer is a sign of an eternal student–always looking for new adventures. It’s no surprise that you are ruled by Jupiter, the planet of growth and opportunity. You are always on the look out for the best and biggest experiences life has to offer. You know the sky’s the limit and face each situation with eagerness and optimism, which is why we chose Dream Big and By Way of the Moon and Stars. The purples in these pieces are perfect for you, since it represents spirituality, enlightenment, and will push you to keep exploring!
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You are determined to reach your goals and nothing is going to stop you, Capricorn! Like your Mountain Goat symbol, when you have a clear destination in mind, you’ll persevere until you get there. You are a natural provider and care for the ones around you. If you want a space that is going to keep you focused on your drive, decorate with earthy browns and grays. These colors are strong yet neutral which enhances your drive and keeps you grounded, and this piece by Elisabeth Fredriksson is one of our favorites that will remind you to keep your equilibrium. Brown is a representation of stability and will drive your inner “goat” to stay steadfast and determined.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Knowledge is power, Aquarius! You are always full of great ideas and fun conversation. When you aren’t happy with the way things are going you have no problem finding support and making a change. You are ruled more by your head than your heart, which allows you to cultivate brilliant ideas that inspire us all. You need a space that is going to let your ideas flow and blue is just the color to do that. Blue is calming and helps keep your focus, which is why we selected Stoian Hitrov’s Teal Isolation and The Sea Inside Me. Just like the sky and sea that you are most connected to, blue represents the vastness of both and allows for a flow of ideas and great conversation!
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You’re a romantic, Pisces! You have a lot of love to give and are not afraid to share it with the world. You are extremely faithful, generous and compassionate. You’re an emotional “fish in the pond” and often put others’ needs before your own. You are very spiritual, intuitive and like to be one with nature. You find that you are often drawn to all things mystical–the connection to this spiritual world is what allows you to balance the hard reality of the world with the warmth of love, romance and understanding. Decorating with accents of pale green represents healing and renewal, allowing yourself to reconnect with your subconscious and stay intuitive–Beach Abstract and Green Feathers are both excellent picks for ethereal light green pieces. Green, the color of life, also represents inspiration to help guide your creative soul!
