Have you ever mentioned your birthdate to someone and observed people associating certain key qualities with that? Yes, right?
It’s a known fact that the sun, moon and stars can influence and alter our moods. You feel energetic in the sun, gloomy in the monsoon, cheerful in spring and autumn. As per astrology, celestial bodies, constellations and planetary positions can help decode your being and sometimes can be quite spot on.
While some people take it as a pseudoscience, there are some who swear by it. They check horoscopes every day before they go about the day and keep the position of stars in consideration when they make big decisions in life. It can also help unleash your design and décor preferences.
Everyone desires a house that provides a sense of belongingness. However, choosing the right tones, furnishings and décor items in a hyper-crowded marketplace can be a daunting duty. But there’s a way to filter out the styles and inspo that truly aligns with your inner sensibilities.
In our first blog of this zodiac series, we explained in length the key traits and inspiration for the signs – Aquarius, Pisces, Aries and Taurus. Similarly, we covered the signs – Gemini, Leo, Virgo and Cancer in the second part. Finally, in this blog, we will express the cues regarding furnishing, finish and hues of Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn and Sagittarius – everything as per the cosmic nature. Excited? Read on!
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
Librans are ruled by Venus and are balanced, expressive, elegant and graceful by nature. At the forefront of every nook of their house, there’s a perfect harmony – of colours, décor ingredients, furnishing and design.
They love amalgamating different styles –like adding vintage pieces with a modern twist – a break-even between two eras. They prefer neutral palettes and pastel hues of pink, grey, white, lavender.
Librans are the best host; they value connections and deep conversations. So, it’s likely that you will witness a big dining table in their house and a sectional couch – something that’s antique but comfortable. Botanical elements inspire them – so they add colourful planters to add a vibrant vibe in the space.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
Scorpions are mysterious, enigmatic, intense and secretive. They are naturally drawn to the dark side of the colour tones and love hues of plum, black, mustard, Prussian blue and emerald green. As much as they love getting social, they also find supreme solace in the sanctuary that is their home. They are extremely private and fiercely guard it– so you might see unusual corners or reading nooks in their homes.
They love luxurious material and finishes – a sumptuous couch with velvet finish reflects the enigmatic aura they have. They like spacious homes and airy design – you will catch sight of sheer curtains and minimalist furnishing with statement pieces.
They are high on me-time – so you will notice a bookshelf close to the window and a comfortable chair with a footstool, a chair that can withstand the long reading hours and musing. Mood lighting, speakers for soulful music, candles and quirky collectables are something that defines scorpions.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21)
The fire sign Sagittarius is free-spirited, inquisitive, deep-thinker and restless. They have itchy feet – they are always on some discovery and eager to find out the unknowns. They like muted yet vivid tones such as lilac, beige, cream and orange.
Their homes are filled with collectables that reflect their travelling stories with multicultural vibes. They are born naturalist – so they infuse the greenery in every corner of the house. They also relish socializing so they like open-floor kitchens with dining – to host the gatherings.
They are always on the go, to combat that they indulge themselves in a lot of activities. There are chances that they can build an activity area within the house where they can just be themselves – writing journals, playing sports, meditating and reading self-help books.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19)
The Earth sign Capricorn is responsible, practical, organized and ambitious. They are obsessed with furnishing with functionality and likely to add things that make everything effortless. Just like Scorpions, they are more attracted to the intense but vibrant colour palette of green, blue, browns and greys.
As far as the home décor is concerned, they love to be current and deploy timeless components. They are dedicated workers so they are likely to cultivate a home office with the ergonomic furniture and top-tier equipment. They love to splurge on the artistic and vintage statement elements – a grandfather clock, chest of drawers and armchair.
With that, walk-in wardrobes, display cabinets, and super comfy armchairs are something that intrigues them. They love being organised in all aspects be it health, work or leisure – they can build an in-home lounge to have quality time with their friends and family. They also love a moment of introspection to channelise their thoughts – so a meditation space becomes essential.
We hope you enjoyed this blog series and resonate with the aforementioned décor attributes.
