The vibe your bedroom needs, based on your star sign

Think about it: if each star sign has its own distinct traits, certain interior choices are likely to appeal.

Certain design elements will appeal to the needs of each star sign – it’s not a science, but it might get some inspiration going.

While Scorpios will prefer darker colours and richer textures (like velvet), Virgos will need a bright, clean and orderly space with clutter at an absolute minimum.

Interiors expert Richard Petrie shares his tips on decorating your bedroom according to your Zodiac placement.

Aries

Aries like to keep active, so it makes sense that their bedroom should be just vibrant and energetic as they are.

‘When decorating their bedroom Aries should have personalised art and prints on the walls,’ says Richard.

‘Typically, Aries like to make the bed the focal point of the room so a large headboard is important for making it feel more at home.

‘As a fire sign, Aries should use colours like red, which is the colour of their planetary ruler and best suits their go-getter personality.’

Taurus

This is a sign that’s all about pleasure and comfort.

Richard says: ‘The bedroom of a Taurus should be comfortable, cosy, and romantic but should still have a clean aesthetic.

‘As an Earth sign, they should include pastels, light shades of neutral tones, and soft gentle patterns, reminding a Taurus to stay grounded and connect with the Earth.

‘They should feel like they’re sleeping in a paradise so keeping items organized and in containers is important.’

Gemini

The sign of the twins likes variety and the freedom to switch things up.

‘To ensure you can change up your bedroom style when necessary paint the walls white and incorporate pops of colour through eclectic prints and accessories,’ Richard advises.

‘The ideal Gemini bedroom is a feast for the senses so think feather pillows, natural rugs and velvet blankets.’

Cancer

Of all signs, moon-ruled Cancer is the most associated with hospitality.

Richard says this sign wants ‘the bedroom to feel like a sanctuary’.

‘Think irresistibly fluffy duvets with top-notch bedding with high thread-count sheets. Throw in faux-fur blankets and pillows for extra softness too,’ he adds.

Go for blackout blinds to ensure a good night’s sleep.

Leo 

As this sign rule by the sun, Leos are drawn to bright, dramatic sunny colours.

‘A typical Leo will love to decorate their home in beautiful art,’ Richard says. ‘Their bedroom will be cosy but still include their love of vibrant, bold colours and regal taste.

‘Leos also love plants, fresh flowers and oversized pieces so a large regal headboard is a perfect addition to any Leo’s bedroom.’

Virgo

Virgos is the sign of perfectionism, so things need to be orderly.

It’s important their bedroom feels clean and Zen-like.

‘In a Virgo’s bedroom, everything will be practical and serve a purpose so will stay away from useless things that seem to become clutter,’ Richard says.

He advises going for decorations that don’t take up too much space and to invest in plants, which will make the room feel more airy.

Libra

Libras love balance, so nothing should be too statement or bold.

‘Neutrals, greys, pastels and serene colours are necessary,’ notes Richard.

‘Libras also love classic furniture so wooden bed frames and bedroom furniture will create the balance a Libra needs.’

It’s about being understated, yet still chic.

Scorpio

A sign that values privacy, Scorpios will need things to look tidy and elegant on the outside, even if the drawers are chaotic inside.

‘Choose furniture that is soft and sensual and pair it with elegant textures such as velvet,’ Richard advises.

‘Scorpios are obsessed with intimate areas so their bed should be gorgeous with luxury bedding, the rest of the space should be decorated with black prints and many candles.’

Sagittarius

Sagittarius people prioritise fun, so may have an unpredictable yet friendly-feeling bedroom.

Richard says: ‘Sagittarius is defined by its fire element so a bedroom should have warm tones with furniture that has distinct edges.

‘The perfect bedroom for a Sagittarius will inspire creativity; however hold back on bright colours as more subdued colours will improve sleep.’

Capricorn

Capricorns are known for their practicality.

‘They like to keep things organised, simple and elegant,’ Richard explains.

‘The bedroom should be a place of relaxation so don’t use a bed cover that’s too patterned.

‘Meaningful items and trinkets should be used for decoration and landscape photos will be a bonus.

‘Capricorns want the bedroom to be quiet, comfortable and soothing so keep things dim and airy.’

Aquarius

Aquarius people are all about feeling unique and artistic.

‘An Aquarius’ home is not a traditional space, it will challenge norms,’ says Richard.

‘Stay away from earth tones and instead make things pretty with a vibrant bedspread.

‘Opt for red and warm tones and incorporate more wood than metal.’

Any unusual objects in the room that make for a talking point is a win too.

Pisces

Pisces are deep feelers, so they like things to appear dreamy.

Richard says: ‘Pisces is about reflection so having mirrors in your rooms and a bedroom with plenty of windows is key.

‘Stick to cooler and calmer tones but stay away from colours that are too dark as this may make the room too bleak.

‘As your mind needs to relax, stay away from busy walls. For extra decoration add plants that are in rounded pots.’
