You may believe in them or not, but hands up anyone who doesn’t enjoy reading about the characteristics of star signs, comparing them to the traits of people that we know. We had fun linking the 12-star signs to different interior design styles. Do you see yourself in your star sign?
ARIES: Enthusiastic, brave and ready to throw themselves into new adventures, ambitious and with an iron will. Aries are stubborn – oh, and don’t make them angry whatever you do: they’re impatient, act on instinct and are known for their outbursts.
TAURUS: Kind, friendly and affectionate. They prefer concreteness over fantasy, certainty over uncertainty. Belongings and material possessions are of particular importance to them. Sacred places for Taureans include the sofa, where they’d happily sit for hours, and the kitchen, the realm where they can best express their talents.
GEMINI: Likeable, inquiring and chatty: Geminis stand out for their intellectual liveliness. They have an inborn talent for transforming themselves: Geminis conceal a thousand different personalities, each one ready to play its part when the time is right.
CANCER: Sensitive, sentimental, attractive and reserved. They may appear moody, but their defenses protect a gentle character with an irresistible emotional nature. What makes them happy? A warm, cozy home, a poetry book and being surrounded by the affection of loved ones.
LEO: Where are you most likely to find a Leo? On stage in front of an audience of at least one person. This is the most self-centered of all the signs but, thanks to their active and cheerful nature, Leos attract others and are always in the limelight.
VIRGO: Intelligent, analytical, perfectionists, and well-organized, Virgos always manage to find the solution to any practical problem.
LIBRA: Wherever there’s beauty, you’ll find a Libra, whether it be a museum, a theatre or a stylish boutique. Vain, sophisticated, sensitive and with a strong sense of what’s right. Libras are famous for their charisma and their ability to get on well with others. They swing from one emotion to another, often finding themselves facing hundreds of different crossroads.
SCORPIO: Love them or hate them, Scorpios do not go unnoticed. Intuitive, sensitive, determined and ready to face anything that life throws at them. Although they may appear cold and reserved, they are driven by great passions which may suddenly take over.
SAGITTARIUS: Sagittarians are real adventurers and love exploring the world. Optimistic, sociable, sincere and generous, Sagittarians dream of a perfect place where they can enjoy life’s pleasures, without any complications. They always have something to discover, to do, to embark on: it doesn’t matter how it turns out, it’s the passion, moving forward and enthusiasm that counts.
CAPRICORN: Finally, someone who gets straight to the point! A Capricorn is certainly not one to waste time on frivolities. They get down to work, plow on through and reach whatever goal it is they’ve set their sights on, all within the established time frames. Capricorns are headstrong, wise and as solitary as Buddhist monks, only opening up to very few people, but when they do it’s always with plenty of generosity and affection.
AQUARIUS: Bursting with imagination, unconventional and a little eccentric, Aquarians are friendly and kind: anything new, futuristic and ingenious belongs to this star sign.
PISCES: Emotional and romantic, sweet and wistful, incredibly creative and unpredictable. What do they like best? To kick back and relax, watching a film with a cat on their lap and their life partner by their side.
