With the holidays fast approaching, perhaps you’re still on the lookout for unique design ideas if you haven’t started decorating your place yet. If you want to veer away from the usual holiday decorations, an idea that you might consider is to base your Christmas decorations on your star sign or zodiac sign.
Having a zodiac sign-inspired decoration not only adds a unique flair to your space but also permits you to add a personal touch and make your home an extension of your personality.
We gathered a few suggestions on how you can decorate your home, your way:
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorns are known to be traditional and sentimental in addition to being family-oriented. To reflect this persona in your home’s Christmas decorations, your theme can revolve around the traditional yet heartwarming hues such as silver, white, green, and red. You may also add decorations such as stuffed animals and popcorn wreath which will surely be a hit among kids in the family.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Most individuals under this sign are known to never take the standard path which might seem boring to them. Aquarians love colorful and funky decorations in which bright colors play a huge part in. In fact, who says that holiday decorations should be bound by one color scheme? You can actually take holiday decorating as an opportunity to play around with colors (and shapes, and figures)!
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Minimalists by nature, Pisceans find comfort in orderly and seamlessly coordinated holiday decoration schemes. If you wish to have simple yet elegant Christmas decorations at home, we recommend for you to adapt zen as your guiding force for your Christmas tree, and other buntings. Just choose one color such as white, silver, or gold, and use varying shades of these in your decorations.
Aries (March 21 -April 19)
People born under this sign are known to be fun-loving individuals with a burning passion for thrill and excitement. Aries natives enjoy making noise and to make their presence felt. So why not spruce up your home with ornaments inspired by music such as drums, bells, and trumpets.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
The Taurus, or the bull is an earth sign that is dominated by Venus which connotes standing tall and being naturally beautiful. To adapt this persona in your decorations, you can add homemade, crafty touches.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Geminis are a naturally romantic bunch which are easily attracted to pretty, feminine hues. This can be translated into an all-white tree (or a pink one!) with touches of soft, muted colors and decorations comprised of soft materials such as velvets.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancerians appreciate a homey environment, so why not transform your home into a cozy yet festive den? Ask your loved ones to write their wishes on a piece of paper (as many as they want!) and turn these into your ornaments!
Leo (July 22 – August 22)
Widely known as being one of, if not the boldest fire sign, Leos might always want to make a splash in everything that they do, Christmas decorating included. A big tree with deep red ornaments can definitely make you feel like royalty at home.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
A touch of minimalism (with a generous serving of nostalgia) is always appreciated by Virgos, especially in the household. Sparse ornaments in neutral, earthy colors can aid you in achieving this effect, without compromising visual impact.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Always aiming to strike a balance and achieve harmony, Libras may not completely love the bulk and clutter of the typical holiday decor. How about you go with a dotting of small, conservative table-top decor, and few touches of festive gold here and there?
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Known as lovers of luxury, Scorpios can add a touch of elegance and luxe by having a full Christmas tree where oversized elements could be freely hanged. In addition to these, large, gold ribbons could also add flair and opulence to the overall look.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Known to be creative, eclectic individuals who refuse to be bound by rules and traditions, Sagittarians can push the limits by having non-traditional holiday design elements, such as a metal Christmas tree — or maybe even no Christmas tree! Feel free to experiment!
Decorating your home for Christmas isn’t only a fun exercise that can help you express yourself and your personality more, but can also be the start of a tradition that you can look forward to during the holiday season.
