Each of the 12 zodiac signs, from Aries to Pisces, say a lot about someone’s personality, attitude, and even style preferences.
On Long Island and beyond, some homeowners are looking to the stars for zodiac-inspired décor ideas that reflect their own special mojo.
“Each sign has its own strengths, weaknesses, likes and dislikes — especially when it comes to home design,” writes Camryn Rabideau for marthastewart.com. “Lucky colors associated with the Aquarius sign include calm, serene hues like blues and grays. You can incorporate these colors into your living room (or really any other room) through a new wall color, a chic couch, or even a few accent decorations.”
Focusing on one’s abode, especially these days, is a great way to escape the craziness outside your front door.
Affectionate, kindhearted, adventurous Geminis (May 21 – June 21) seem to gravitate toward green, the color of nature and creativity and their numero uno personality hue. But red, pink, and white can also be associated with that sign, and some astrologers say their “darker side” may be represented in the black of Gemini’s color palette.
Visualize a refreshing, deep emerald green in a sofa, accent chair, or featured within a rug design for a fabulous look. Or how about a lot of greenery, as a more subtle alternative?
Hey Scorpios! A subdued style and classic furniture may work best for your spaces. Just add invigorating pops of red-orange or rust that represent your gung-ho attitude and passion.

EMBRACING YOUR SIGN
With their lifestyle-centered approach, New York City-based astrologers Ophira and Tali Edut, aka the AstroTwins, reach millions worldwide through their accurate predictions and practical, empowering horoscopes.
Noting that the zodiac is divided into four elements – water, fire, earth, and air – Ophira Edut explains how your astrological sign can translate into personalized decorating and color choices.
“Each element has different colors, energies and styles associated with it. Different styles suit the vibration of each zodiac sign and its element, so they might feel more at home in decor that resonates with them,” she notes.
“For example, fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) are active and may prefer more saturated colors and patterns with a global influence. Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) have more classic energy and might gravitate toward muted tones, earthy colors (beiges, caramel, oxblood) and traditional textiles or materials (leather, wood). These generalizations get even more specific when you do a person’s entire chart and look at the placements of all of the planets. The birth chart is a blueprint of each person’s unique personality. Décor can be tailored to that!”
WHAT’S YOUR SIGN?
Each of the five elements of feng shui, the ancient Chinese method of creating a harmonious environment, is associated with a different region of a home or room.
“We have a new course called Home Reset that combines feng shui and astrology, that teaches people which colors, shapes, and placement of their furniture and décor will bring positive energy into the home,” Edut offers. “If your home isn’t feeling like the haven it could be, don’t despair! Our Home Decor Horoscopes reveal how to adorn your abode according to your sun sign.”
ACCENTS OF THE STARS
Zodiac lovers can easily enhance their dwellings with eye-catching items like personalized horoscope cushions and candles, astrology figurines, customized constellation blankets, celestial wall art and tapestry, and more.
Thinking about bringing your zodiac style into your next interior design project?
Well, it’s all about crafting your own visual story, according to design pro Kati Curtis, whose Gotham-based firm, Kati Curtis Design, specializes in classic design with a global influence. KCD crafts visual stories that become signature surroundings.
“I’m a Pisces, so you’ll definitely see a water element in my work. I tend to gravitate towards blues and greens and the sandy colors of the beach,” Curtis shares. “Pisces tend to be dreamers, so much of my design work has a dreamlike quality to it.”
She adds: “I love to use wallpapers to create magical spaces that provide a serene respite from the world outside for my clients. Reality can be harsh these days, and like a true Piscean, I want our clients to have a home they can escape to.”
