After a long day, your home becomes your sanctuary; your escape from the busy life outside its walls, so it makes sense that the decor you choose should be a reflection of your personality and spirit. Every person is unique and each zodiac sign reacts differently to a variety of colour schemes. Make the most of your interior decorating and follow this guide that will ensure you choose the best colours to decorate with, according to your zodiac sign.
Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are all descendants of the element of fire. With fierce personalities, each of them has a different colour that increases productivity, health and well being, as well as romance. Here are some of the colours you should decorate with if you are a fire sign.
Aries: Known for their determination and strength, people who fall under the Aries sign should decorate with crimson and orange. According to astrologer Lisa Stardust, red is one of the best colours to incorporate into your house if you are an Aries. Being the colour of the planetary ruler Mars, it will make you feel more in your element when you are at home.
Leo: As a sign derived from the sun, Leo is drawn to bright, happy colours. Shades of yellow will increase creativity while incorporating gold will increase productivity. Leos are also drawn to deep, rich colours like shades of royal purple, which increases romance, and mahogany, which enhances health and well being.
Sagittarius: Similar to Leos, Sagittarius are drawn to a darker, richer shade of purple. The power of the deep hue pushes their philosophical side and drives them to explore their spirituality. Due to their adventurous spirit, decorating with bright happy colours like lime green or yellow is a good move for Sagittarius, as it allows them to express this side of their personality.
Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are signs that evolved from the earth. These signs are all well grounded and draw inspiration from earthy tones. If you are an earth sign, follow these colour guidelines to decorate accordingly:
Taurus: Taurus is very inspired by nature, so decorating with earthy tones such as sage, emerald green, and cinnamon will increase vitality, productivity, and creativity in their space. For relaxation, Taurus tend to draw from cream colours and shades of mauve. These colours help them stay calm and centred.
Virgo: As an earth sign, Virgos should decorate using natural tones like chestnut and spring green. The chestnut will help keep them grounded, while the spring green increases their vitality. Due to their tidy nature, Virgos also benefit from using an icy blue tone because it not only enhances their creativity, it is also an easy colour to match with anything.
Capricorn: As a sign that is reserved, patient, and hard working, Capricorns often plan for the future. With this in mind, decorating with a nice, neutral grey allows for the flexibility Capricorns will need to match all their future interior decorating styles. Grey is also perfect for increasing productivity in Capricorns.
Following the planetary ruler Uranus, the air zodiac signs are innovative, loving, and eclectic. Using the correct colours when decorating will influence Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, and enhance their astrological qualities. The following are some suggestions for colours to use for each zodiac sign.
Gemini: As people who are always on the go, Geminis are most likely to keep their walls simple and bare. Their preferences for open and airy rooms make white one of the best colours to paint with. It gives the home a zen-like atmosphere, which is a nice break for Geminis, who usually have a very busy lifestyle. The slight eclectic nature of a Gemini can be reflected through pops of bright colours like yellow, orange, blue, and pattern work.
Libra: A Libra is most relaxed in an environment that is decorated with a chocolate brown colour. Their refined personality tends to draw them to decadent colours that add a touch of class to a room, like champagne pink. For extra accents, focusing on a dark green colour will keep Libras grounded while highlighting their love for entertaining.
Aquarius: As a loyal follower of Uranus, blue is naturally an appealing colour for this sign. Not only does it look nice in their interior decor, it also enhances their innovative nature, allowing them to experiment with decorating ideas. To keep their eclectic personality at bay, and keep Aquarius grounded, hues of grey will help. This colour has a calming effect on the sign, so it encourages relaxation.
Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces are all descendants of the water element. With an emotional, intense personality and a tendency to feel stressed, there is a wide variety of colour choices that suit each water sign.
Cancer: Cancerians are very emotional people at times, so using shades of plum with a touch of silver increases relaxation and keeps them calm. This sign is naturally drawn to pastels because they reflect a welcoming vibe in the home, which is something that this sign strives for. Hints of dark teal will increase their productivity and coral is the perfect colour to choose for inspiring creativity.
Scorpio: Scorpios are known for their tendency to be intense on an emotional level so it is no surprise that powerful colours like black and red are often associated with this sign. For a perfect medium between these two colours, decorating with a maroon will bring out their intensity but not on an uncontrollable level. To help increase creativity Scorpios are best to use hot pink. Although this may sound like a bold choice, their natural instinct to gravitate towards intensity means that using hot pink will ensure they are in their creative element.
Pisces: With a natural aptitude for absorbing others’ energies, a Pisces is prone to stress so decorating with calming colours like turquoise and lavender are the best for this sign. Their delicate style of romance means that a ballet slipper pink will be most beneficial to their love life, while a steel grey will increase their productivity.
With each sign being unique in their personalities and lifestyles, it’s important to determine which colours will suit your zodiac sign the most so you can reap the benefits. Regardless of what your zodiac sign is, using the right colour scheme will help you make your home the oasis you crave while benefiting your life in romance, productivity, creativity, and vitality.
