Aries:- Aries can be described as dynamic, temperamental, passionate and a lover of challenges. The element of Fire is associated with the Aries sign. Owing to this, they are naturally inclined towards “red shades, crimson, scarlet, ruby and fire-engine”. We are of the opinion that a bright red interior with a simple and minimalistic style will be seen in their luxurious abode. This best reflects an Ariens charm and charisma. When it comes to Furniture selection, Aries prefer to go with modular furniture with plenty of storage space.

Bedroom Sets

Taurus:- Represented by the bull, the sign is drawn toward, “earthy browns, shades of green, pastel colors (blues, pinks, greens), and white.” They are extremely grounded and realistic. Bulls usually prefer to add a touch of warmth and plush to their home by inducing drapes, upholsteries and soft lighting. Interior décor comes naturally to the Bulls.

Bedroom Furniture

 

Gemini:– Gemini belongs to the group of Air signs. They are known to have a style which is fresh, youthful, and urbane. They are blessed with an active mind and fertile imagination. Latest designs, glass doors, utilitarian furniture and modern art works best reflect their sign. A Geminian’s home is most likely to feature a blend of cheerful, lively and bubbly interiors with a burst of psychedelic colors.

Cancer:- Cancerians love the warmth and coziness of their homes. For someone with this water sign, one can describe them as tenacious, highly imaginative, sympathetic, loyal and persuasive. A Crab’s home is sure to reflect ‘moonlight hues’ such as soft gray, pearl, silvery, milky white, cream.  They truly enjoy basking in soothing whites and calming grays. Antique furniture, old family pictures will find its way in a Crab’s home.

Leo:- Leo, the magnificent lion tends to set extremely high standards for themselves. When it comes to Interior Décor, the fire sign has a soft corner for the colors of the peak of summer. Hues like “red, sunflower yellow, orange and gold” create the ideal palette for this magnetic sun-sign. Their dwellings have to have a larger-than-life feel to it. High quality art pieces, furnishings, accessories, furniture etc. is of prime importance for a Leo.

Bedroom Set

Virgo:- Quite fastidious in their choice and a born perfectionist, Virgos have an excellent sense of space planning, and can manage with ease even the tiniest of the spaces. They are always prepared with admirable storage ideas, and the minute they run out of it- they find some more! This, however, doesn’t mean that their house is full of random pieces of furniture. The hues associated with this earth sign are luckily quite luxuriant, offering lots of room to play in spaces. From plain “white” to “muted natural colors like indigo, soft primary colors (blues, greens, yellows), forest green, beige, wheat field golden,” Virgo has the more natural looks all wrapped up.
