We asked the experts for the best interior design styles for each zodiac sign. Would you agree with what they say?
By Diane Small
There can be little doubt that astrology has remained wildly popular over the centuries. Our horoscopes by Claudia Vannini are always one of our most viewed articles, and celebrities and even Presidents of the USA have been known to rely on their astrologers before making major decisions.
Astrologers believe that each zodiac sign has a separate set of personality characteristics than the other signs. Some may think this is simply pseudoscience, but if you explore your star sign more deeply with a professional astrologer you may be surprised at what you learn!
That goes for all kinds of things, such as discovering what type of romantic partner is best for you; which job you’re most suited to, and which kind of home decoration makes you feel calmest and most relaxed.
To help you make the right choice, we asked the experts at PsychicWorld.com to find out what design style would suit you most based on your zodiac sign. To find that out for sure, they did a survey of 3,634 people. They showed them a variety of images based on different interior styles, and asked them which designs they like the most. The answers were then categorised by zodiac sign, and we shared the results below.

The Best Interior Design Styles For Each Zodiac Sign
♈ Aries – Very Contemporary
Most rams in our research on the best interior design styles for each zodiac sign revealed that their favourite style is….Contemporary! And it makes sense. Fiery Aries tend to be impulsive, so they might change things around their house often. The fluidity of contemporary style allows them to combine modern items with any other trends they choose, making it their perfect environment.
Try: Shades of black, beige and white are fundamental to this style, alongside the use of different materials, offering the house a sleek and fresh look. Instead of using curtains on a heavy curtain rail, you might want to invest in sleek blinds for a more modern look.
♉ Taurus – Rustic
Tauruses are Earth signs, which means they love to be around nature. So it’s no surprise most people under this sign chose a Rustic style over all others. Bulls love being surrounded by raw, unfinished materials (especially plants and wood) which make them feel like they’re in the heart of the forest. They also love being surrounded by personal objects and different textures, to appeal to their sensual side.
Try: Adding plank wood floors and a fireplace will make your place feel even more rustic.
♊ Gemini – Shabby Chic
Geminis tend to be very romantic. They are in love with love, as they say. And there is no better style for them than lovely, romantic Shabby Chic interiors. Offering a balance between beauty and comfort, this French farmhouse-inspired trend will make any house feel like a home! This style can also be described as an elegant rustic, or French country. It features lots of comfy cushions, antiques and wood.
Try: Floral patterns, cream coloured walls and exposed brick are some standard elements in creating a French Country style.

♋ Cancer – Traditional
Cancers are the mothers of all the zodiac signs. They value their home and family above anything else. They are classic nurturers who love classic style. Elaborate details and lots of beautiful objects will make Cancerians feel warm and cosy. You might need an extra storage room for all the family memories though!
Try: Look to the 18th and 19th centuries for a traditional colour palette, defined by dark, warm tones. The furniture style is quite royal, typically using lavish materials.

♌ Leo – Mid-Century Modern
When it comes to Leos, the vast majority of respondents in our research on interior design styles for each zodiac sign choose a chic, nostalgic Mid-Century Modern style. People under this sign do not believe in false modesty. They love opulence – but also fuss free environments. This style is a combination of traditional and modern materials, in which functionality is important.
Try: Clean lines and a minimalist, neutral palette are essential. You will find non-traditional materials like glass, metal and even plastic go beautifully with this style.
♍ Virgo – Fuss-Free Modern
Virgos love to be organised and hate a mess! If their environment is not in line, they will not be happy. It’s as simple as that. So maybe that’s why, when we surveyed the best interior design styles for each zodiac sign, Virgos answered ‘Modern style’. There’s no doubt these types of interiors, with their crisp lines and light colour palette, will make Virgos feel organised, clean, and at peace! The roots of this style can be found in German and Scandinavian designs, which represent an easy, fuss-free environment.
Try: Adding one large, dramatic potted plant makes a warm statement – especially in a modern urban home.
♎ Libra – Minimalist
Libras love harmony and good vibes! They are not fans of flamboyant style, opting for minimalist style as one of their favourites. This theme is described best by a monochromatic palette, clean lines and simplicity. Sure, you can use colourful objects such as plants or cushions as accents, but these should never dominate the room.
Try: Ensure your minimalist vibe isn’t boring by adding some colour or texture to your rooms. Fresh flowers, a colourful cushion or a statement piece of art can make all the difference.
♏ Scorpio – Industrial
Scorpios love to stand out and make a statement. They are passionate, seductive, and not afraid to speak their mind. So maybe that’s why when we researched interior design styles for each zodiac sign, most of the Scorpios chose Industrial style as their favourite. If you want to achieve this style, you will need to invest a bit. Cement floors, plenty of metal elements and preferably leather furniture define the look, as does an open-plan design.
Try: Try to incorporate industrial elements like bare lightbulbs, metal furniture and exposed beams.

And why not bring that holiday vibe home? Most respondents under this sign have said they would love to have a house decorated in the Coastal style to make them feel like they are close to the beach. If you would like to give your house a coastal vibe, the colour palette should be predominantly white, with light blue, grey and/or green elements.

Plants, antiques, a riot of patterns and colours are all vital for creating Bohemian style. Add lots of natural-based materials, such as straw and wood, and mix these up with luxe touches of gold, and handmade objects, such as macrame plant holders or crocheted blankets.
Try: Don’t be afraid to mix traditional elements, like chandeliers and gold leaf, along with modern touches like glass or contemporary art.
♓ Pisces – Transitional
A Transitional style can best be described as being a combination of traditional and modern. This is also one of the best interior design styles for people under the Pisces sign. If you want to achieve this style, you can start by staying neutral with your colours.

Try: Impactful art or large carpets that make a statement both work well in Transitional decor.
