Special Nonexistent Furniture

How to decorate your bedroom based on your star sign

Bedrooms are the most personal spaces in any home—sanctuaries that showcase our style and serve our needs. It's a room that deserves a little extra decorative insight, so we turned to astrologist Wendy Blume for advice on how to appeal to the stars and let the zodiac guide our next bedroom refresh.

Aries, March 21 - April 19

Fire sign Aries is the insomniac of the zodiac, who stays up until 3am before springing back out of bed at 6am. They need a bedroom filled with distractions that can keep them busy while the rest of us snooze! Think a good set of headphones (so they don't wake their partners) and a sturdy bedside table to hold a laptop and books. To stay screen-free, Aries can spend their midnight hours scribbling away in a journal, writing their to-conquer list for the next day.

Taurus, April 20 - May 20

Taurus is an earth sign known for its love of comfort and luxury. They respond well to tactile experiences and snuggly textiles, such as a velvet quilt cover set and plenty of wool blankets and throws. Ruled by Venus, Taurus wants their bedroom to be an entirely pleasing experience, so keep colours harmonious and finish with a soothing scented oil diffuser or candle.

Gemini, May 21 - June 20

Gemini is an animated sign; ruled by Mercury and known for loving long conversations that flit between subjects. The bed is the least important part of the bedroom to them—instead, focus on a good armchair and reading lamp. Shelves or a bookcase will come in handy to hold their collections of books and magazines. Also, a charging station for their multitude of devices is a must.

Cancer, June 21 - July 22

Cancer is the nurturer of the zodiac - they like to be comfortable and provide comfort for the entire family. They’ll need a king bed to fit all the kids and pets, plus plenty of pillows and cushions cast in welcoming natural colours. Cancer can be pretty sentimental and should keep photo frames filled with special memories nearby.

Leo, July 23 - August 22

Known for their love of drama, Leos needs a bedroom with wow factor. Create a bed ‘stage’ with a statement bedhead and wallpapered feature wall framed by a set of side tables and table lamps. Chaise lounges are perfect for reclining after a dramatic swoon, and mirrors or a dressing table are vital for keeping Leo performance-ready.

Virgo, August 23 - September 22

Virgos can suffer from a bit of anxiety as they struggle to turn their meticulous brains off at the end of the day. Plenty of bedroom organisation is key to helping them find their calm. Virgos prefer everything coordinated, so choose bedroom furniture from the same range, if possible, and finish with stylish storage boxes and baskets that help to soothe their perfectionistic side.

Libra, September 23 - October 22

Librans need everything to be harmonious and beautiful and are classic lovers of the layered bedroom look. Combine blush bed linen with neutral throws, and explore botanical prints across cushions. Faux flowers, beautiful vases, and abstract wall art complete the irresistible scene.

Scorpio, October 23 - November 21

Scorpio is co-ruled by Mars and Pluto—they’re a sexy mix of action and darkness, all shrouded in mystery. The term boudoir really suits this sign, so keep the bedroom colour palette dark and the lighting low by opting for pendant lights that glow beautifully against dark timber and jewel-toned bed linen. Scorpios enjoy their nocturnal, adult fun, so choose items like bed frames with posts and well-placed mirrors!

Sagittarius, November 22 - December 21

Known for their love of adventure, Sagittarians can benefit from bringing the outside into their bedrooms. Go crazy with indoor plants and don't be afraid to give an ethereal canopy a go. Decor wise, a bohemian floor rug and ornaments with a global vibe will remind them of previous travels.

Capricorn, December 22 - January 19

Earth sign Capricorn is surprisingly sensuous—they’ll seek good quality, natural materials like linen bed sheets in subtle, tasteful colours. They tend to play the long game with their purchases, preferring quality over quantity, so avoid any fad patterns that will date and stick to traditional styles and materials. Capricorns are the hardest workers of the zodiac, and a chic wall clock will help them stay on schedule.

Aquarius, January 20 - February 18

Aquarius is all about doing things their way. They’re somehow totally interested in fads, but will be keen to put their individualistic spin on things. Their bedroom decor is likely to be an eclectic mix of fabrics, colours and shapes that suit their quirky personality. Interesting lighting, such as a statement pendant light and room-framing string lights, will also complement Aquarius, who has a strong connection to electricity.

Pisces, February 10 - March 20

Ruled by Neptune, Pisces is a water sign sensitive to the energetic currents around them. Holding firm personal boundaries can be a problem, so it's important to create a bedroom that helps them contain their energy. An eye mask and blockout curtains (floor to ceiling if possible) will keep unwanted light out, while soft rugs and welcoming wall art will cocoon the environment—just keep to soothing shades of blue, green and grey.
