Zodiac sign: Aries
Zodiac sign: Taurus
Major project: You’re practical and house-proud, but never impulsive. So skip the in-ground pool, but a kitchen reno that will improve your home and add to its property value? 100% yes!
Easy update: Taureans are not fans of change. Take baby steps to try something new in your home. One easy and on-trend update is to swap your beige living room curtains for sumptuous velvet drapes.
Zodiac sign: Gemini
Major project: Born communicators, Geminis are also natural athletes and multitaskers. Carve out space for your varied hobbies. That attic reno could result in an aery studio, or your basement can become a family gym!
Easy update: You live to learn, travel and explore. Rest up between adventures by updating your bedroom with new bedding, a luxurious carpet and sound absorbing, blackout drapes in a pattern that reminds you of your favourite exotic journey.
Zodiac sign: Cancer
Major project: Emotional, caring and intuitive, Cancers are natural homebodies. Invest in an open-plan main floor reno, so you can entertain in the kitchen, dining and living areas.
Easy update: Turn your bedroom into a Cancer-worthy retreat, with deep, moody blues and sensual fabrics. We’re thinking, plush velvet headboard, with plenty of pillows and bolsters, and dramatic, floor-puddling drapes to match.
Zodiac sign: Leo
Major project: Energetic, warm and gregarious, Leos love to entertain their admirers. This is the year to create that multi-level backyard living space, complete with outdoor kitchen, dining and conversation areas, mood lighting and billowing outdoor drapery.
Easy update: Don’t cover up a dramatic dinner party mis en scéne. Invest in motorized Q Motion shades to blur the inside and out of your domain.
Zodiac sign: Virgo
Major project: Organized, neat and efficient, Virgos like to be on time. Now’s the time for that dream walk-in closet makeover.
Easy update: Address your need for efficiency by improving the energy-efficiency of your home. Insulated honeycomb blinds will reduce heat transfer and help you conserve.
Zodiac sign: Libra
Major project: Artistic and intellectual, Librans love having a room of their own to create and/or daydream in. Convert that attic or garage into your home studio.
Easy update: Social butterflies, Librans should invest in their living rooms. Reupholster the sofa, add a vibrant rug, and layer blinds, sheers and valance so you can entertain in style.
Zodiac sign: Scorpio
Major project: Magnetic and mysterious, Scorpios are also sensitive souls and hardworkers to boot. A top-of-the-line professional-style kitchen is the perfect escape.
Easy update: Everyone knows Scorpios are sensual types. Introduce tactile elements to your boudoir, from faux-fur throws and leather upholstery, to silk and satin pillows and velvet drapery.
Zodiac sign: Sagittarius
Major project: Confident risk-takers, Sagittarians love adventure. Stash your gear – and contain your messes – in a well-organized and spacious mudroom.
Easy update: Sleek shutters from Hunter Douglas are an easy design and privacy solution for globetrotting Sagittarians.
Zodiac sign: Capricorn
Major project: Practical, self-sufficient and hardworking Capricorns should invest in a garage makeover or build their own workshop.
Easy update: Cater to your practical side with motorized shades: they’re sleek, fuss-free and stylish.
Zodiac sign: Aquarius
Major project: Intellectual, independent and helpful, sensitive Aquarians need plenty of alone time. A master ensuite remodel with spa tub or steam shower sounds good to us!
Easy update: Refresh your bedroom retreat: think upholstered headboard, and cozy window coverings to block street sounds and lights.
Zodiac sign: Pisces
Major project: Gentle, affectionate Pisceans are empathetic listeners. A living room update provides the perfect setting for them to lend a sympathetic ear.
Easy update: If the kitchen is where you entertain visitors, fresh new Roman shades to match your reupholstered banquette seats would be perfect!
