How to update your decor by your star sign

Updating your space doesn’t have to mean completely changing up your furniture and styling. Decor plays a powerful role in personalising your space, so why not seek guidance from your Sun Sign, the part of our astrological chart that points to the fundamentals of who we are and how we choose to express ourselves. We chatted to astrologist Wendy Blume about incorporating decor elements that align with the zodiacs to live more harmoniously.

Gemini, May 21 - June 20

Geminis tend to be voracious consumers of content! They love knowing things, so books can often be prized possessions to them. As their collection grows, they’ll want to display the volumes that speak to their soul. Bookends are a natural match for this sign, enclosing these precious words with simple or sculptural pieces that amplify their significance.

Cancer, June 21 - July 22

Being a water sign, cancer is very receptive. They naturally understand the needs of others and are keen to meet them, and in return like to feel loved and appreciated. Pamper yourself with a beautiful bouquet of flowers, you deserve them, and keep them on display in a gorgeous vase.

Leo, July 23 - August 22

Leos have a healthy regard for themselves, and their ability to proudly place themselves at centre stage without embarrassment should be envied by all! Placing a mirror near the main entry and exit point of their home ensures they can do a final appearance check before they head out to take on the world.

Virgo, August 23 - September 22

There can never be enough boxes and baskets for a Virgo, they can always make their storage game more efficient. Any excuse to reorganise and edit their treasures into a more logical system is welcome, and categorising items into separate containers is a classic trait of this earth sign.

Libra, September 23 - October 22

Ruled by Venus, Libras rely on their senses to make life more pleasing for both themselves and their guests. Known to be fabulous hosts, they’re likely to ready their homes for entertaining by fluffing up cushions, lighting candles and filling their spaces with beautiful scents.

Scorpio, October 23 - November 21

Naturally private beings, Scorpios may be inclined to compartmentalise their homes. Work is work and play is play, so a room divider is a nice way to separate the two. The added benefit? When entertaining guests, you can easily hide whichever part of your life they don’t need to see.

Sagittarius, November 22 - December 21

Lovers of nature, travel and adventure, Sagittarians adore plants but are often too fickle to remember that they require constant care (who knew they needed so much watering?). Artificial plants and flowers are the perfect solution for this enthusiastic but sometimes scatterbrained sign.

Capricorn, December 22 - January 19

Capricorns are solid types of people who love high-quality items and things that will last a lifetime. Rewarding yourself with a unique statue or ornament for reaching a goal can be a lasting way to remember your achievements.

Aquarius, January 20 - February 18

The traditional ruler of Aquarius is Saturn, the Task Master and Time Lord, so keep him happy by incorporating a clock into your space. Unlike Capricorns (who are also under Saturn’s rule), Aquarians may prefer something with a quirky twist, so go for unusual materials or a unique design.

Pisces, February 19 - March 20 

Pisces is a boundless water sign who needs harmony in their home. Adding in some decorative bowls and trays - either made of glass or in gentle colours - can help them create focal points that symbolically match their need to support the world. Plus it’ll help them create organisation spaces so they stop losing their keys!

Aries, March 21 - April 19

Aries can be big statement people. Why be half-hearted when you can go all out! When decorating their spaces with wall art, they tend to prefer larger canvases filled with bold, graphic images to really capture attention.

Taurus, April 20 - May 20 

Taureans love to experience the world directly through their senses. They feel their best when they’re comfortable, whether that be from the warmth of snuggling in bed or the cocooning atmosphere of being in nature. Combine the two with a new throw rug or blanket and by surrounding yourself with plants in handmade plant pots. Natural materials such as timber, rattan, linen and wool will put them in harmony with their space.
