We’re having a little fun here today. Lunar Café is taking your personality traits and marrying them up with architectural and interior design to find the best type of home for your astrological sign. Let us know what you think of our choices. Would you live in the type of home that fits your sign? Maybe you already do?
Aries March 21 – April 19
You need light and air, Aries, so a new, well-designed apartment with access to a large balcony or sunny area and large windows would be ideal. Your busy life demands a low-maintenance, ultra-modern style. A home office is a good idea if you run your own business. You’ll enjoy a premium view across the cityscape if possible. Decorate your home in bright, clear colors. No dull or muddy colors for you. Think crisp, uplifting and stylish. White walls with splashes of color in accessories and wall art. You’ll need a beautiful, state-of-the-art bracket to hang your cycle in the entryway.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Taurus needs luxury. The type of architecture is not so important to you, yet your home will be built from the best materials – all natural, of course. You are quite taken with English Baronial style, but you are also happy with a modern home, as long as you can fill it with your exquisite taste. Your kitchen will be homely, yet completely fitted out with everything necessary to impress. Your living space will be a homage to nature, yet as luxuriously comfortable as possible. We love to visit Taureans in their homes.
Gemini May 21 – June 20
You don’t like things to stay the same for too long, Gemini, so chose a home with flexible accommodation. A modern apartment with high ceilings will suit you best – those airy thoughts need plenty of space. You prefer light and modern decor, though bright colors aren’t for you. Go for restful neutrals, perhaps a Japanese theme may work? Choose quality furniture which can be easily moved.
Cancer June 21 – July 22
A Cancerian will make his or home wherever their family feels happiest. They prefer traditional dwellings, and can deal with the odd quirk. They are excellent nest builders and will turn the most soulless house into a warm and cozy home with consummate ease. So, family photos on the walls, grandma’s quilt on the couch, a gently bubbling casserole in the slow-cooker, and we’ll all be round for dinner later.
Leo July 23 – August 22
You like to show off, Leo, yes you do. And your home is the best way to showcase your beautiful self. You like a period home, perhaps even Victorian, with rich colors to show off your art collection. Bookshelves, crystal glasses, stainless steel in the kitchen, you really know how to do glamor. And that fireplace – c’est magnifique! What time does the party start?
Virgo August 23 – September 22
We see you in the most perfect little home, Virgo. It might be a cute little detached house, or a condo, or maybe even one of those hand-built, bespoke tiny homes. It will be clean and neat, just like you. The color scheme will be carefully chosen – maybe duck-egg blue, a delicate elderflower green, or just the right shade of cream? The cushions, pillow and throws will be handmade and, oh, just perfect. We heard you do a mean afternoon tea served in china cups with lavender ice-cream.
Libra September 23 – October 22
Libra, you would feel right at home in a rustic, yet elegant barn conversion. With your eye for balance and beauty, you will make it a harmonious, relaxed environment. Creams and grays, natural wood and stone, your home will have beautiful country views yet will be convenient for town. Your vinyl collection is outstanding, by the way, and we love that you have installed smart home devices throughout.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
No windows, Scorpio? Why does that surprise us? We’re joking with you. The best type of home for your astrological sign is a loft apartment, dark and mysterious just like you. You like the night, and your home reflects your nocturnal tastes. Blood red chenille, a wrought iron bed and fake animal skin rugs. Your taste in art is way out there, isn’t it? That’s okay, we liked to be shocked occasionally. Did you leave those handcuffs out for show?
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
Bring your sense of adventure to your home. How about a log cabin? Not your regular, fishing’-by-the-lake log cabin, but something on a grander scale – how about an Adirondack style residence? Granite fireplaces, massive tree-trunk structure, huge verandas, and sprawling house plants. Maps on the walls, battered leather books on the tabletops. Display your inner Indiana Jones, while you tell us tales of your latest escapade.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
It has to be a period residence for you, Cappie. Traditional with all the features retained. Painted in authentic period colors. American Craftsman perhaps? As for the interior, you prefer a clutter-less environment, with attention firmly directed at the architecture. You like buildings with stories, with history and you do like authenticity. You are also very happy when your home increases in value.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
Cozy? You don’t do cozy. You want space and light and air. You’d do without furniture if you could. You enjoy letting the materials speak for themselves sans soft furnishings, so your home is modern architectural. 1930s Art Deco. Curving balustrades, metal window frames, Bauhaus chairs. Utilitarian and spare, yet designed to the hilt and made of the best materials. It would make a great space for a ball, Aquarius, shall we make it fancy dress?
Pisces February 19 – March 20
We think a Cape Cod house would suit you, Pisces. You enjoy tranquility and peace, and if it’s near water, so much the better. Imagine stepping outside and within a minute you are standing on the shore or the harbor side. Simple cottage interiors, pale colors, understated decor. A haven for you to peace out and relax in your own space. You’ve got a spa treatment room? Light the scented candles and we’ll be over.
