Capricorn is an Earth sign and one of the most ambitious of the zodiacs. As workaholics, Capricorns love fuss-free minimalism that enables them to save time wherever possible. This also reflects their responsible, grounded nature as well as love for practicality. Here our home decor tips for all of you born under the star sign Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 21).
Key traits that define a Capricorn: Ambitious, career-focused, practical, conservative, reliable
Capricorns love dark, vibrant shades of browns, greys, greens, and blues. They enjoy the earthy and ageless decor and the colours they choose, complement their choices in furnishing. Soft browns with a dash of white, moody reds, and blues interspersed with creams are what Capricorns would love in their homes.
Style and decor
Capricorns love their homes to make a statement like them. Simple and elegantly artistic architecture in classic styles would be perfect for a typical Capricorn home.
When it comes to the interiors, they are not ones for keeping in tune with the latest trends but are guided by timeless styles that would never go out of fashion. Vintage furniture, classic art, and family heirloom pieces would be standard in a Capricorn home.
Must-have interiors for a Capricorn home
Capricorns love their work, and they would not want to be disengaged entirely even while at home. A dedicated study or home office with a sturdy desk of solid oak in the claw-foot style, perhaps complemented by a plush leather armchair would take pride of place. Additional touches like an inkstand, a letter opener, and bookshelves made of heavy, dark wood would be a Capricorn’s dream.
A Capricorn home would not be complete without large statement pieces. Here’s where a grandfather clock, an antique chest, or big, solid armoires would blend in beautifully. Being dedicated to their work themselves, Capricorns love the craftsmanship and would not hesitate to splurge on richly carved pieces of furniture or object d’arts.
Capricorns have a fiercely independent personality. They like their space. Walk-in wardrobes are a must for Capricorns who find it necessary to dress according to the occasion. It’s necessary to dress sharp for that morning meeting or to be carefully casual for that evening cocktail party. A walk-in wardrobe gives them their time alone to choose their clothes according to their plans for the day.
A display cabinet (or two!) of curios that they lovingly collect would definitely adorn a typical Capricorn living room. A vintage glass cherrywood cabinet designed by local traditional artisans that contains family portraits, artwork, and handicrafts would appeal to Capricorns.
Yoga, meditation, or just spending quality time with their loved ones are what Capricorns look forward at the end of a long day. To this end, a home gym or lounge space would be essential in a Capricorn home.
Setting it up with tealights, lanterns, comfortable armchairs and sofas in inviting, warm colours would be perfect for Capricorns to unwind.
