When it comes to interior design, people have different tastes, likes, and dislikes, and even though personal preferences are not debatable, everyone can use a few tips and tricks when it comes to creating their ideal living space. And if you can't figure out your own unique style, look to the stars for guidance. Here's how you should be decorating your home, according to your zodiac sign.
Aries - Minimalistic and Bright
As the most optimistic sign of the zodiac, the perfect colors for your interior are bright shades like red, warm orange, or hot pink. These vibrant tones are perfect for your home because they reflect your fiery, passionate personality and can help motivate you and lift your mood. As an Aries, you're very bold, energetic, active, and you adore simple things. This means that a minimalistic and clutter-free interior is ideal for you because it can help you focus on your never-ending task list. Also, a minimalistic interior design means less cleaning and more time to go out and be active. Your home needs to have an extra room you can turn into a painting studio, meditation room, or a dance area, where you can relax, unwind and release pent-up energy.
Aries people are often explorers and natural adventurers who like to travel and play sports. This means that you probably have a lot of photos, trophies, or mementos from your adventures, so why not display them in a gallery wall in the living room or the hallway?
Taurus - Traditional and Cozy
As an Earth sign, you, Taurus are mostly drawn to natural materials with a timeless beauty such as stone and wood. Your sign is best suited to traditional interior design rather than modern. You're a bit materialistic and you seek comfort, pleasure, and security in life, so you want to live in a comfortable and stylish home that has the best of everything: paintings, antiques, luxurious leather sofas, soft throw pillows, oriental rugs, home theater... You also love to entertain your guests, so your ideal home needs to have lots of space for socializing and fun.
Being ruled by Venus (the planet of love and beauty) means that you love beautiful things and you have a natural talent for decorating, so your home has to reflect your good taste. Various plants, fresh flowers, as well as brown, pastel green, and neutral tones can help to accentuate your earthy nature and make your home cozier.
Gemini - Traditional and Modern
Symbolized by the Twins, your sign wants variety and can't settle on one particular interior design style. Your ideal interior is a mix of old-fashioned and modern, more sophisticated style. You're very creative and you love colors, accents, fun objects, and eclectic prints that allow you to express your breezy, easy-going nature. When it comes to creating your perfect living space, you can pull off even the most unusual color combinations like hot pink and yellow-green, or orange and purple. As a result, your environment may become too stimulating, so you'll have to tone down your decor with some standout pieces.
However, since Gemini is an ever-changing sign, you'll have a hard time sticking with one look or style for long. Your home will probably have many different styles, but one thing is for sure - communication is one of the most important things for you, so you'll have to invest in a large dining table to fit your entire family and friends.
Cancer - Simple and Cozy
You, Cancer, are deeply emotional and caring soul with a strong sense of home and family. You're very traditional, a true homebody who wants to live in a simple, harmonious, and cozy environment.

A comfortable sofa and a big, rustic dining table are a must for your home because they will allow you to hold family gatherings that satisfy your need for domestic bliss. Neutral colors like white, soft gray, cream, or pastel blue, are ideal for your sign so try to include those. Lots of natural light, bookshelves, plush rugs, bold artworks, and antiques will add a cozy accent to your home.

Your ideal living space should have high-quality furniture, grand dining table, beautiful pieces of contemporary fine art, and a fireplace which will be the perfect welcoming centerpiece for all your family gatherings.
Since your Fire sign is ruled by the Sun, you crave sunshine and you need to make sure your home has plenty of natural light. Choose warm colors like reds, oranges, golds, and yellows, or purple to match your regal instincts. As the lion of the zodiac, you have a powerful, wild side that needs to be expressed, so try to include animal prints or art featuring animals in your home decor.
Virgo – Earthy and Harmonious

You'll feel good in a traditional home filled with leather sofas, grandfather clocks, beautiful wooden furniture, and vintage accessories in colors that complement your down-to-earth nature.
