The One Home Upgrade That Would Make You Happiest, According to Your Zodiac Sign
Call it intuition but things have never felt quiiiite complete in your home. Theory: That’s because said home is actually missing its cosmic counterpart. No fear—here’s exactly what your place needs to help you live your best homebody life—according to you zodiac sign, obviously.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18): A BREAKFAST NOOK
As an intellectual air sign, you crave social gatherings and spirited discussion like none other. Which is why your kitchen clearly needs a cozy, casual breakfast nook to act as the main hub of the house where connections and ideation happens organically over eggs.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20): A HOBBY AREA
No sign has the creative bug quite like you do, Pisces. If you don’t make time to flex those artistic muscles? Well, you’re left feeling uninspired and unfulfilled. The fix: A hobby room (or hobby nook, for you small space-dwellers) where you can tuck away to write, draw, learn, whatever it is you whimsical water signs do.
ARIES (March 21 -April 19): AN EXERCISE ROOM
Fact: Our beloved Aries turn into living breathing monsters If they don’t have somewhere to burn off their inexhaustible fire sign energy. Nip this problem in the bud by turning your guest bedroom into a flex yoga studio, making room in your home office for that Peloton you’ve been lusting after, or moving your coffee table a couple inches to fit a yoga mat.
TAURUS (APRIL 20 – MAY 20): FLOOR PLANTS
You’re happiest outdoors amongst greenery. (You can't help it—you're the earthiest of the earth signs.) Your decor mission, then? Bring that feeling of peace and belonging inside—by loading up on leafy, oversize floor plants that help you feel connected to nature...and at one with your pre-destined green thumb. (Bonus points if you can swing a garden room.)
GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 20): OVERFLOW SEATING
Gems = the zodiac’s hostess with the mostess (you’re a highly sociable air sign, after all.) Your happiness levels will benefit from a designated lounge or sitting room for the impromptu entertaining you love to take on. Don’t live in a mansion? Lots of overflow seating (think: ottomans as coffee tables, decorative stools as side tables) will do the trick.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): A SOAKING TUB
No bath? Dust off that shelf with old Sephora samples and make it your zen gallery. Sitting a couple candles and your crystals on there and now, even in the shower, you're at peace.
LEO (JULY 23 – AUGUST 22): GREAT LIGHTING
What can you say? You want to see your name—and your face—in lights. Craft a layered lighting concept (accent! task! ambient!) to keep your confidence healthy and help you put your best foot forward.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22): CUSTOM BUILT-INS
Let’s call a spade a spade: Your sign is marked by meticulousness and practicality—and naturally, you crave this in your home. Our advice? Invest in some quality built-ins in the kitchen/entertainment center/playroom and office, which will suit your storage needs and make your place immaculate. (Your OCD will thank you.)
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 21): A WET BAR
Life’s a party for happy-go-lucky Libras. As such, you want a home entertaining setup that promises F-U-N. A custom wet bar will lift your spirits on visual impact alone—and also create a satisfying prep-to-serve flow for your gatherings. (Psst: Bar carts fit the bill too.)
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 22 – NOVEMBER 21): WINDOW TREATMENTS
We all need our time to brood and hibernate...but none so much as notoriously guarded Scorpio gals. Prioritize luxe, textural drapery, which will give you the privacy and comfort you crave, when you need to do your whole Queen of Darkness recharge thing.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22 - DECEMBER 21): A GALLERY WALL
For the zodiac’s premiere adventurer, a minimalist collection of art is like squashing your soul. A well-collected (and ever expanding) gallery wall, however, will show off your collection of curiosities and keep you inspired.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19): A LIBRARY
You’re a hardworking and hyper-ambitious earth sign—and your happiest when your brain is being fed. A space dedicated to self-betterment—read: a home library or baller bookshelf situation—will help you feel like you’re being productive at home, which is your version of relaxation, nerd. (You like being called that.)
