December 22 – January 19
Capricorns aren’t driven by trends that come and go – instead, they like traditional and comfortable home décor that stand the test of time.
Think large armoires, leather sofas and cabinets full of crystal or the finest china – anything which is practical, economical and reliable.
“A Capricorn will most likely splurge on one or two features to add to the rest of their home decor, rather than going all out on everything,” Eloise said.
A Capricorn will also be grateful for the time and effort put into crafting their furniture and will focus on this rather than the cost.
January 20 – February 18
Harmony and tranquillity is key for the Aquarius among us,so lots of vibrant ocean hues, hand painted details and DIY fixtures is ideal.
Artwork that provokes conversation should hang on the walls, and as an air sign, rooms will be well ventilated, full of natural light and offer lots of space.
They may be unconventional, but Aquarians ensure the latest gadgets will fit into any designs.
February 19 – March 20
It's all about simplicity for a Pisces as well as making their home as relaxing as possible.
This can be done with aromas, plants, salt lamps and furnishings that have spiritual ties.
When it comes to colours, Pisceans hate bold patterns, preferring muted and earthy tones like peach and subtle pinks.
Eloise added: “They will have fluffy cushions, soft throws and mood lighting to help them enter their world of fantasy.”
March 21 – April 19
An Aries should avoid permanent fixtures in the home so they can move from trend to trend as they please.
Eloise pointed out: “This is due to them taking inspired action so if the mood is right, they like to redecorate on a whim.”
Arians also like open spaces with textures and bright colours that stimulate them while keeping up with their energetic personality.
Motivational quotes will be thrown in there too, or an acknowledgement to their success- but in a tasteful, not tacky, manner.
April 20 – May 20
It’s all about romance in the home of a Taurus as well as focusing on wowing everyone that visits.
Think creams, soft pinks, coppers and gold along with elegant fittings that create the mood of perfection that they crave.
Taureans want comfort to be at the heart of all their interiors so will have silks, velvets and cosy cashmeres all over to provide the softest of touches.
Sophisticated French opulence made up of sumptuous furniture will make the cosiest of homes, and mirrors and chandeliers too.
Eloise added that someone who is a Taurus likes to indulge their senses so expect scented candles and fresh flowers.
May 21 – June 20
With an open mind, a Gemini likes to experience as much as possible which leads to them not having a distinct style when it comes to their interior.
They will collect everything they love in one place and fill their home with brightly coloured wall hangings, trinkets and prints – so anything goes, really.
As Geminis are ruled by Mercury, the planet of technology, they must have the latest gadgets – this will make them feel at ease.
However, this can lead to cluttered rooms with lots of belongings, so be sure to keep some space clear.
June 21 – July 22
Creating a safe space is key for Cancerians Eloise said that beautiful cosy decor, a comfy sofa and plenty of cushions in their living room is what will help achieve this.
They appreciate every small detail and this will also show in how well they keep their house clean.
When designing their house, a Cancerian will choose neutral colours combined with little bits of silver, light pink and blue with photos of their loved ones scattered throughout.
July 23 – August 22
Leos are loud, so their home will reflect this.
A Leo will show off their pleasure in the finer things with their interior so expect bold features, including oversized furniture and vibrant colours.
Leos find it extremely difficult to resist the things they want so will purchase many oversized cushions and large sofas or beds in statement colours made using lavish fabrics.
Even a chandelier or an enormous mirror wouldn't be out of place in a Leos home, because they aren't shy about having expensive taste.
Leos also like to be remembered for their opulence and hospitality, they want guests to be jealous when they leave their home – and they might very well be.
August 23 – September 22
A simple and organised home will make a Virgo feel at easeand the colours seen in their homes will create a sense of calm- think earthy tones.
While it will certainly be satisfying to look at, it may not be the comfiest home to sit in.
Timber floors are likely to replace carpets to avoid dreaded stains – besides, Virgoans want minimalist featuresand a consistent theme throughout.
Minimalist artwork and a beautifully crafted lamp or coffee table will probably take centre stage – and the interior will certainly impress.
September 23 – October 22
Libras want a balance of elegance and tranquillity in their home but also like expensive features.
Pairing unconventional elements together such as chandelier lamps on up-cycled tables or fresh flowers in antique vases work well.
Eloise said: “Libras understand the magic of a well-placed vase or rug and have an uncanny ability to make a stylish masterpiece out of anything.”
Their home will be peaceful with elegant mirrors, cushions and romantic paintings and prints, whilst colours are likely to be champagne pink, lilac and light grey.
October 23 – November 21
The Scorpios home will reflect their honesty and self-awareness by not being involved in any fad trends.
They are typically drawn to mid-century gothic and industrial architecture so expect lots of this around the home.
This theme will be supported by dark colours like emerald green and plum purple along with fur, silk and wood textures.
November 22 – December 21
Being adventurous, a Sagittarius will have everything they love on display and as they are keen travellers this will include bits of most places they have visited.
Their walls will include maps of foreign lands alongside artifacts, souvenirs and postcards – in a bid to have it all on show.
Despite having a style that is hard to define, a Sagittarius will be attracted by natural materials and subdued colours.
Eloise said: “A Sagittarius is endlessly curious and forever roaming so is likely to mix things up regularly.”
