Every homeowner will want to update their property but unless you’re a professional interior decorator, it can be very tricky to decide just what you want to do and where.
You should always do as much research as you can before you start any project or you might find yourself left with something you don’t like or something that costs an awful lot of money, simply because you didn’t plan properly.
If you’re struggling, take a look at this report from SCS, the sofa and carpet specialist, which has just teamed up with New York-based astrologer Lisa Stardust to help you with your home decor ideas, based on what star sign you have.
For example, if you’re an Aries, the advice is to surround yourself with bright colours and make sure that you put all your tastes and interests on display as this will help to keep your busy minds well entertained and also shout about your intelligence a little when people pop over for a cup of tea.
As for Librans, who are known for their peace, charm, flair and grace, as well as their romanticism, intellectualism and sense of fairness, colours like soft greys and pinks will complement their sophisticated beauty.
“With champagne wishes and caviar dreams, Libras can add sparkly accents such as a glistening chandelier to be the centrepiece when entertaining, unique high-end mirrors to marvel at their beauty and a chic sidebar filled with the best liquor and glassware in town,” Lisa Stardust observed.
Capricorns, meanwhile, would be best served by investing in key pieces like leather club chairs to create functional yet classic interiors, while cool evergreen shades of paint will help create traditional and chic rooms throughout the home.
