Your Interior Design Horoscope for 2018

December 20th, 2017

We dreamers like to believe that the stars rule everything about our lives… even our sense of design, style and where we find ourselves most comfortable. Here is what our stargazers see in store for you in the year ahead.

Aquarius

January 20 – February 18

Custom Drapery & Upholstery

Aquarius, you tend to be a social butterfly and love to spend time with your friends and family, any chance you get. So step up your entertaining style and focus on the places in your home where everyone gathers. The living room and your dining spaces are the perfect place to start! Indulge in modern takes on class looks by updating fabric patterns and integrating warm colour palletes across upholstered surfaces in the dining room, the entraining spaces and your family room.

Pisces

February 19 – March 20

Bedroom

You are intuitive and sensitive to the spaces and people around you… but that can get a little big exhausting sometimes. It is no surprise that when you have a moment to yourself, you need tailored, comforting spaces to regroup and reenergize as the core of strength for those you love. In the year ahead, your bedroom will be your happy cocoon. Take the time to personalize it and make it as comfortable as possible. Customized headboards, use sheer drapery to welcome the light, and choose the highest quality bedding (that can be customized too!) to energize the room and your spirit.

Your Lucky Colour Pallete: lilac purples and earthy grays

Aries

March 21 – April 19

Home Office

Aries are passionate, dynamic, and temperamental – you know what success means to you and you work hard to achieve your goals. So the best place to start your decorating adventures this year is your office or study space. Contrast prominent patterns with muted essentials to make a bold statement and power up the command centre. 

Your Lucky Colour Pallete: Power blues and muted creams

Taurus

April 20 – May 20

Designer Fabrics

Earth signs like Taurus can go out in the big bright world, pick just the right spot and pass the time happily with a good book and hot cup of tea. To nurture your best self, think creatively around your home and carve out a personal nook to enjoy your best literary adventures. Use oversized floor plows, an upholstered day bed and dimmed lighting to create your cozy design hideaway, right at home.

Your Lucky Colour Pallete: Charmed greens and deep ocean blues

Gemini

May 21 – June 20

Outdoor Fabrics

A secret garden is the thing for you this year, Gemini. You will need all the extra energy the Sun and the Earth in your sign can offer. It will be hectic, and sometimes trying year for you, so it is important to find a place just your own, where you can regroup and freshen our inner strength. Spend as much time outdoors as you can and when at home, work to create intimate, cozy outdoor spaces where you can retreat when the time is right. On the balcony, in the backyard, or the rooftop garden, take advantage of designer outdoor fabrics to personalize your outdoor living space for when you need it most.

Cancer

June 21 – July 22

Bedroom Drapery

Hi Cancer! You have been hiding – but now it’s time to come out of your shell and make 2018 a year to remember. So out with the old and in with the new. This will be a year of renewal for you – a time of new achievements and discoveries. So your decorating task this year will be to put your perceptive eyes to good use and find that overlooked little nook in your home and give it a new life – in the attic? The little window seat? The unused den? The possibilities are as unlimited as your imagination – it will be just like you have discovered a whole new world, if you just decorate it well!

Your Lucky Colour Pallete: Muted pinks and pastille creams

Leo

July 23 – August 22

Bedroom

Everyone knows, Leo is the boldest of all the star signs. You are unruffled by conflict and rarely detoured by risk. In fact, most of time, you are the trailblazer and others follow your lead. So embrace your true nature for this new year and don’t shy away from design risks – we promise your rewards will be beyond expectation! Stay on point and explore the latest and the trendiest from world designers to bring home and show everyone. Hint: exotic silks, and bold statement wallpapers will be a great place to start. Go get ’em tiger… er…. Leo.

Virgo

August 23 – September 22

Dining Room

Virgo, you are one of the most romantic signs amongst the stars;  and as every real romantic knows, true romance really starts in the kitchen. A loved kitchen is usually the heart of the home – it is the place where loved ones come together, bond over good tastes (and few glasses of wine?), and let the day’s stresses pass, as we find our way out to the rest of the home. So this year, pay extra attention to the most special place in your home and make sure what your guests eat, is as good as where they come to eat it.

Your Lucky Colour Pallete: Sweet blues and charming yellows

Libra

September 23 – October 22

Custom Upholstery

The best place in your home for you this year, is the library. This year, your life choices should be most influenced by the wisdom of the past – and the best place to find this wisdom will be amongst the books you have enjoyed over the years. Put down the iPad and the e-reader – we are talking about good old-fashioned paper books. Dust off those old friends, freshen up your reading corner with some customized seating and look for all your answers in the stories that ones stolen your heart. You will be surprised what wealth you will find, without leaving your cozy chair.

Your Lucky Colour Pallete: bronzed metallics and night-time blues

Scorpio

October 23 – November 21

Upholstery

You have always been a little too quick to strike, but you have learned to learn that it is better to be a little more strategic, than just quick to draw. So for this year’s decorating plans, take the time to consider all the unusual ‘suspects’ and get the most out of your investment. Bold prints and dramatic accents for your tiniest spaces – this is where you will find the most impact in your work. In that forgotten den, the underused sunroom, the guest bathroom, a well-organized closet – there are many opportunities for big impact, with minimal effort.

Your Lucky Colour Pallete: honied browns and bold fuchsia

Sagittarius

November 22 – December 21

Upholstery

Freedom is your greatest treasure, because only then you feel free to travel and explore the variety and beauty the world has to offer… but sometimes it is also good to come home, and regroup before setting out for your next adventure. To make your home your own, embrace nature patterns and prints to keep the nature around you at times. Another reason to choose a nature-inspired theme for your decorating projects, is that such earthy accents will best allow you to integrate all those keepsakes and special pieces you will bring home from your travels in 2018.

Your Lucky Colour Pallete: Forested greens and fleshy reds

Capricorn

December 22 – January 19

Living Space

Capricorn, this year, it will be very important for your well-being, to find new outlets for your creative drives. Find or expand your art space. Use sheer drapery to flood these spaces with natural light and decorate with the things that inspire you the most. Spend every free moment making your art and find yourself in what you create. A special hint – if you use outdoor fabrics to upholster your studio furniture, they will last longer and cleaning and repurposing will be much easier.

Your Lucky Colour Pallete: sea-side blues and sandy whites
