12 Design Horoscopes for the Bedroom
You make your presence known without dominating, but come across grounded, solid and sturdy. As the adults of the zodiac — responsible and disciplined — you gravitate toward sensible, grown-up decor. Your sensibilities tend toward strong, solid basics, like a wooden red-toned armoire with a big sturdy leather chair, and funky accents, like an earthy leopard print rug.

You tend to impose your unique, forward-thinking ideas. You’re a step ahead of the rest of us — especially when it comes to technology. You’ve probably got the latest HDTV on your wall — or want one. But, whether you’re the type who prefers linens and throws or gadgets and gizmos, the bottom line is: Aquarians need to be different. Your bedroom will boast at least one conversation starter, whether it’s the memory foam in your mattress or your metallic paint. Then again, it might be that retro quilt you snagged at the flea market — sometimes you step out of the future and back in time.

You’re a go-with-the-flow type who soaks up the characteristics of others. Sometimes you soak up their emotions, too, so your room needs to be a place you can relax. Your bed is of primo importance: Make it soft, comfy and soothing, with luscious sheets and a cocoon-like cashmere throw. Of course, you won’t be happy unless this cozy haven reflects your creative vibe: Most fish have more talent in one fin than the rest of the zodiac combined. Choose art that’s ethereal and dreamlike, like Van Gogh’s Starry Night .

You act impulsively and with flash. You’re also the first sign of the zodiac, and that youthful optimism means you love to take chances with design, but your room will always reflect vitality and life. You might carry a talent you learned as a child — such as antiquing or stamp-collecting — into adulthood and put it on display. Or, you might try to make children feel comfortable in your space; for example, designating a kid corner with a red sitting chair for story time. Bold and opinionated, fiery pops of color are what an Aries needs to feel warm.

You know what you like, and you’re not about to change your mind. Your bedroom should reflect wealth and the finer things in life, such as the Palace of Versailles. You’ll choose elegant details — finely tailored curtains, custom-made bedding — and spare no expense to make your home a haven. Just beware of too much opulence. Add basics, like a rich wooden bedframe, to ground those fine silken sheets, matching duvet and pile of plush throw pillows. Then, recline with a fine glass of wine. Ah, bliss.
