Cancer home decor is richly elegant, but never too precious to kick your feet up.
How to decorate your home if you’re a Cancer
Cancer, home is definitely where your heart is. Creative and romantic, you want a soothing haven that reflects your innermost self, and honors your nostalgic streak. Because you have such a deep need for security, you’ll decorate with sentimental objects such as souvenirs, family albums and heirlooms. You may eventually accumulate too much, as Cancers tend to cling to cherished possessions.
Cancer is the sign of family, so you’ll have lots of framed photos of relatives and friends, many of which you’ve probably snapped yourself. (You have a great eye!) Since you love food and entertaining, a large, rustic farm table that seats ten could be the heart of your abode.

A thrifty sign, you believe one person’s junk is another’s treasure. You’re not above scouring local curbs for a castoff side table or abandoned bedframe. You’ll quickly restore it to better than new condition, creating a beautiful, one-of-a-kind piece. On the weekends, you may love waking up early to get in line for estate sales or be the first “picker” at an amazing, flea market. You have a great eye for antiques, especially clean-lined furniture of the 1940s. One warning: don’t overdo it on the period pieces. Too much mahogany and lace can give Chez Cancer a heavy feel—or make your home look like a Broadway set.
A true homebody, you find it incredibly hard to get out of the house once you’re settled in. With all your artistic flourishes and warmly decorated rooms that reflect your moods, you may have to motivate yourself to leave or else risk isolation. Hosting dinner parties is an excellent antidote, so people come into your space to experience your amazing hospitality.
Use the cozy touches sparingly as accent to classier pieces. Turn the home decorating experience into a treasure hunt. Splurge on custom wallpaper or a signature chandelier. Silver, pale blue and white give you a peaceful “by the water’s edge” feel.
