What does your star sign say about your personal colour palette? Colour affects your mood and each zodiac sign has its own power colour as well as colours that can invigorate or create a calming environment depending on traits associated with that star sign.
We’ve analysed zodiac traits to assess how they should influence your design decisions when decorating different spaces in your home.
Earth signs – Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn – are signs associated with practical and intellectual traits. Appeal to these characteristics with a pared back décor using a nature inspired colour palette.
For people born under the Taurus sign, shades of greens and blues like Grassy or Polka Dot, should be incorporated into their homes to reflect their grounded and trustworthy nature – both attributes are commonly linked to this dependable earth sign. They also love to treat themselves and like the finer things in life, so a colour such as Lily Lily Rose can bring a touch of subtle luxury to their surroundings.
Virgos are often connected to organisation and methodical thinking. Create well-thought-out, ordered spaces for Virgos to thrive in with soft greens like Sapling. This pairs nicely with Virgos power colour of brown, choosing shades such as Muddy Boots or Donkey Ride to create a grounding backdrop inspired by nature.
Much like the Taurus zodiac sign, Capricorns are associated with practical traits. Avoid burnt oranges and reds and, instead, incorporate timeless and adaptable colours like Up Up Away or Seagull, combined with Hippo Hooray to reflect their power colour of charcoal grey, or Hidey-Hole for a more striking look.
Water signs – Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces – tend to be emotional and highly intuitive making them extremely sensitive to their surroundings. Use colour in different places throughout the home to help restore their energy or help create a calming environment.
As a compassionate sign, Cancer’s should feel nurtured in their home. Their personal space should appeal to their sensitive natures with non-threatening tones of pinks and peaches like Ballet Shoe and Peach Baby.
Scorpio’s are brave and loyal with lots of ambition. Speak to these traits by incorporating small elements of reds, like Lady Bug into their room, or a dark colour such as Hidey-Hole to reflect their power colour of black. Be careful to avoid over-saturating the room with these rich colours which can overstimulate Scorpio’s senses.
Similar in many ways to Cancers, Pisces are emotionally aware individuals with a creative side. Speak to their imaginative nature by painting murals in muted tones of blues and greens like Bo Peep and Fiddlesticks. Add pops of colour such as Milk Jug to help them restore their energy.
The fire signs, made up of Aries, Leos and Sagittarius’, are courageous and creative individuals. Bold colours reflect fire sign’s brave nature, while softer tones and textures will help to soothe their fiery side.
Those who fall under Aries are confident and daring individuals who love adventure and enjoy being independent.
The Aries power colour is red, so stimulate creative Aries’ minds with murals or a feature wall painted in an energetic red like Can-Can or a burgundy red such as Lady Bug. These colours are ideal in a working from home office space or living room.
Represented by the brave lion, Leos are the natural born leaders of the zodiac calendar with their power colour being orange. Give a subtle nod to this using colours like Freckle or Flower Pot to highlight architectural features or upcycle furniture pieces in the home. Alternatively, focus their minds with low wavelength colours like blues and greens.
Sagittarians are loyal and compassionate. They’re a sociable bunch and love to go on adventures. Their power colour is purple, try using a shade like Inglenook in places where you want to work, create and think. Otherwise, softer colours such as Paw Print and Lily Lily Rose can help nurture Sagittarius’ and encourage them to pause and take a breath.
Air signs – Geminis, Libras and Aquarius – respond well to balance. Their intellectual minds like soothing colour palettes combined with bolder colours to invigorate.
Symbolised by celestial twins, Geminis have two sides to their personality, so a palette that talks to their playful personality while nurturing their mellow side will help them thrive. Their ideal colour scheme will be made up of beiges and ivories like White Clay and Hopscotch, paired with a pop of Jemima or Daisy Chain to represent their power colour yellow.
Libras are symbolised by the scales of justice, associating them with balance and harmony. This popular zodiac sign calls for order in their life, making symmetry and balance essential in Libra’s homes. A pale blue, like Shallows, combined with a serene pink (their power colour) such as Cupcake will create a harmonious space.
As the final air sign, Aquarius’ minds are innovative, progressive and intelligent. Feed innovation with invigorating hues of blue like Skipper or Toy Soldier. Use airy blues such as Bo Peep, Teacup or Gingham to help calm and centre their thoughts.
