Your latest bedroom decor inspo could be written in the stars - or in your star sign, to be precise.
With the help of expert astrologer, Inbaal Hongiman, we can help you decorate your bedroom in a way that meets your innermost needs according to your Zodiac sign.
We’ve paired these insights with top interior tips from Bensons’ Senior Buyer, Lauren Jacques , with simple tips to create the perfect space based on your zodiac element.
Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces)
Opening up the door of a water sign’s bedroom should be enthralling, complete with deep, dramatic colours and layered textures that welcome them home after a busy day.
Inbaal: “Water signs like to feel embraced. They will have shimmery bedding and lots of soft furnishings and wrap themselves in comfort. Their favourite colours are of course the many hues of water - blues, sea greens, turquoise, even some deep purples.”
Lauren: “For ultimate comfort, opt for a plush upholstered headboard in luxurious velvet fabrics. We recommend opting for a dark, dramatic shade like navy blue or rich purple to feel surrounded by ocean tones.”
Fire Signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius)
For fire signs, their bedrooms should be where they go to feel inspired and recharged. Their room should be a balanced haven for creativity where they retreat to following a day of excelling in their many hobbies.
Inbaal: “They will have original artworks around, and their own easel for when the mood strikes. Fiery colours are their palette - reds, oranges and deep yellow. Fires are very active so there will be sports equipment around, and, naturally, candles on ledges and walls - not too near the curtains, as most Fire signs are clumsy!”
Lauren: “Pair fiery wall colours with modern, neutrals like a minimalistic ash wood bed frame with matching bedside tables. Stripping back your bedroom furniture will allow the more creative elements of your bedroom to stand out while creating a relaxing space of calm to rest.”
Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn)
Quite literally down to earth, earth signs like to feel stable, grounded and enjoy the outdoor inside aesthetic and their bedroom decor should reflect this.
Inbaal: “Earth signs like to feel stable. They will have old maps and globes, antique weighing scales and other interesting features that remind them of their place in the world. They favour neutrals such as cream and beige, slate and coffee colours.”
Lauren: “Think up-scale vintage when it comes to a grounding bedroom aesthetic. I’d suggest adding character and warmth with a rustic wooden bed frame. Dress the bed with timeless neutral tones and luxurious bedding for comfort.”
Air Signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius)
Minimalism is key when it comes to air signs, they need their space to express themselves allowing their bold personalities to be the accent colour their decor needs.
Inbaal: “Air signs like to feel free. They love writing and describing their thoughts, a quill and a pot of ink won't be out of place. Their colours are airy - palest yellow, lightest grey, a whisper of blush. Air signs are freedom fighters and are inspired by social justice, so you'll find an old poster for a demonstration of equality. And sheer materials, gauze and gossamer.”
Lauren: “Make the most of your space and use a Scandi-inspired dresser for a writing desk and dressing table for when inspiration hits.”
