HOW TO STYLE YOUR HOME ACCORDING TO YOUR STAR SIGN

If your space in desperate need of a refresh, but you are unsure of where to start, why not look to the stars for some guidance? *prepare for more cheezy cliches*

Your sun sign defines your natural character or your ‘persona’; it’s your default emotional state, directing how you move through the world, your outward and inward perceptiveness, the energies you attract, and your life calling or purpose(s).

However, your ascendant, also known as your rising sun, is how you portray yourself to the world; a telescope through which the world views you. Considering your rising sun is not your core self, it possesses an intense impact on your personal style.

Styling yourself and surrounds is the fundamental practice of using this world as a canvas to express your individuality and authentic self.

The celestial events from the time we were born, structure the way we live, so naturally, we understand a governing force over the way we design our home…even right down to what decor we choose.

Here’s ABI’s rundown on how your zodiac sign affects your home’s design and styling, including free downloadable wallpapers for your phone!

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19)

Architectural style: Traditional

Character traits: Responsible, Ambitious, Disciplined, Goal-Orientated

Likes: Practicality, Independence, Fairness, Comedy, Socialising

Dislikes: Boastfullness, Fad-Trends, Superficiality

Favourite decorating colours: Earth Tones, Greens, Neutrals

ABI Product & Finish: Dana Round Shower Head in Chrome

Delightfully independent with a passion for splendid adventure. Traditional but full of love, Capricorns are conventional by nature but never miss a new opportunity or moment to grow. While they consider life to be quite serious, they often possess a quick-witted personality with a good sense of irony – a beautiful balance of practical playfulness. 

Capricorns thrive within comfort, constancy and consistency – living blissfully within life’s normalities rather than questioning their security. Just like their demeanour, their home should achieve the same balance and symmetry. 

Those who are born under this star sign no doubt appreciate the cosy warmth of a traditional home, and it’s rustic and historical details. A fireplace, organic arches, exposed brickwork, clean, classic and rigid lines with the balance of ample space and soothing colours suit their longing for convention and reliability.

We recommend to all of our Capricorn friends – Dana Round Shower Head in Chrome

Aquarius (Jan 20–Feb 18)

Architectural style: Shabby-Chic

Character traits: Realist, Individualistic, Reasonable, Enlightened

Likes: Honesty, Friends, Innovation, Open Spaces

Dislikes: Hedonists, Conformity, Over-sharing, Restriction

Colour Palette: Silver, Aqua, Blue

ABI Product & Finish: Milani Progressive Wall-Mounted Mixer & Spout Set in Chrome

Governed by the sun, you lead fiercely and thoughtfully. You are a free-spirit, passionate about spaces that are full of character and beautiful pieces. You appreciate the capacity of your imagination and treat every idea as a new possibility. 

A typical Aquarian home is an amalgamation of modern and minimalist decor that includes items that make a unique statement. Your colour palette revolves around the ocean, with an affinity for shades of blues, aqua and metallics.

Creativity flows freely in your home, but it’s best shown through a loving structure rather than an organised one. Continue to dance to the beat of your own drum, and seek out one-of-a-kind finds for your space that gratifies you. 

There is nothing that speaks Aquarius quite like our GORGEOUS Milani Progressive Wall-Mounted Mixer & Spout Set in Chrome

Many people under this sign have chosen the Industrial style as their favourite as a forward-thinking, empowered and chic design. Don’t be afraid to invest in elements that you haven’t worked with before. Be bold with colours, and if you can add details of exposed brickwork, metal or cement into your space… that’s a bonus!

Sagittarians have a very open outlook on life, and this is reflected in their love for new experiences and encounters. Invite that very zeal into your home by keeping the space available and as uncluttered as possible for any novel opportunity or feature that might walk into your life. 

A soothing bedroom that features meticulous attention to detail, high-quality furniture, and some bold pieces – understand the base of your vision and build from there.

As adventurous and curious people, we couldn’t tie you down to one product…so how about some colour samples to get you started?
