AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20-FEBRUARY 18)
Aquarius rules all things modern and futuristic, and your home should reflect that. Bypass the antiques and overstuffed sofas, and furnish with strong, graphic pieces like a contemporary leather sofa on a steel frame. Skip the rugs and opt for bare hardwood floors and modern materials like glass and steel. It may be less cozy, but you like it that way. You’ll have plenty of friends dropping by, so create a space that accommodates high traffic and cleans up easily. With your soft spot for animals, you probably have a few pets around, too.
Aquarius is the water–bearer sign, so fill your home with vases and urns. If you’ve got the means, add an indoor waterfall, a goldfish pond or a soothing Zen fountain. You love vibrant hues and the colors of the ocean, like blue, violet, indigo and salmon. As an air sign, you need a roomy space with lots of ventilation, too. Sunlight, big windows, dangling plants and a kitchen with hanging pots create the airy feeling of space you crave.
You love to fill your home with totally unique touches, like hand-painted tiles or blown-glass light fixtures designed by a talented local artist.
Aquarians have great taste, and you’ll accessorize with colorful paintings and treasures. You love to fill your home with totally unique touches, like hand-painted tiles or blown-glass light fixtures designed by a talented local artist. You also love mixed–medium work, like sculptures combining metal and wood, or hanging mobiles of wire and glass. Graphic prints go great on your wall, and as the sign of revolution, you may frame photos of radical political icons like Che Guevara. With your natural creativity, you could even display your own artwork.
Since you barely sleep, keep your bedroom simple, and turn the spare bedroom into a home office. Invest in a grand desk and the latest computer, with a jumbo monitor and tiny, space-age speakers. You’ll spend plenty of time chatting with friends, e-mailing and brewing up your next big idea. Make it your haven!
