If you're looking to feel more at one with your interior design style, why not try incorporating the element that pairs with your star sign?
According to Greek philosophy, the four elements that form the universe are earth, air, fire and water.
Each element has its own identity, so here’s a guide on how you can bring in touches of earth, air, fire and water into your home, to suit your astrological style perfectly.
Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius
Strengths: Passionate, bright, charismatic, focused, decisive, daring
Passionate and emotive fire signs tend to gravitate towards rooms with warmth and energy.
Add touches of warm colours such as terracotta, yellow or burnt orange with accent pieces like pillows, curtains or lamps.
Use lighting in warm tones.
Make a statement with bold, dramatic artwork.
- Burn candles to help you feel grounded.
Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces
Strengths: Understanding, trusting, devoted, forgiving, flexible
Tranquil water signs will feel most at home in rooms with fluid shapes in hues of blue and green, or a serene all-white palette.
Incorporate calming colours such as blue, sage green, soft white and grey.
Choose furniture pieces with soft edges and flowing lines.
Use mirrors and reflective or glass decor rather than bold, heavy pieces.
One of a kind, handmade trinkets will appeal to your creative and intuitive nature.
Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn
Strengths: Stable, consistent, hard-working, loyal, nurturing, logical, empathetic
Earth signs will enjoy being connected with nature, gravitating toward earthy tones and natural materials.
Wood and stone decor will help keep earth signs grounded.
Choose solid and structured furniture in natural materials.
Use rich, earthy colours for cushions and throws such as greens, browns and tans.
- Incorporate elements of the outdoors with an abundance of indoor plants.
Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius
Strengths: Thoughtful, witty, charming, carefree, independent, flexible
Air signs are constantly in motion - physically and mentally - so will feel best in spaces that are calming such as minimalistic scandi-style decor.
Air signs love light and fresh air, so use sheer (or no) curtains where possible.
Choose minimalist furniture in white or pale timber.
Bring lots of additional light sources into your space with lamps, candles, chandeliers and fairy lights.
- Show off your creative side with art, beautiful objects and unique pieces.
