Like most of us, you must have often pondered about what really makes you, you. Is it the way you look? Is it a talent that you have? Perhaps it’s a combination of multiple factors. And maybe all of them can be traced to a single source – your star sign. The planets that rule you are believed to dictate your personality, tastes, and the choices you make in life.
Therefore, even your home decor is written in the stars! In the first of our Vaastu Series, we give you our expert home decor tips for all you born under the star sign Aries (March 21- April 20).
Key traits that define an Aries
Bold, dynamic, organised, passionate, and competitive
Audacious colours that are unusual and exciting would be an Arian’s first choice. Think deep rugs shot through with crimson, hot orange accent walls, and butter-yellow sofas. But as energetic as Aries is they are also prone to settle into a calm zone every once in a while to recharge.
Muted colours like soft straw yellows, sage, lavender, and eggshell whites would do perfectly as secondary or even third-level accents in the shade card for your home.
Minimalism is the way to go for Arians who hate clutter, and for this reason, modern styles characterised by clean lines and big spaces would be their first choice. Arians would love the Scandi-style sparse decor defined by chrome finishes and metal accessories balanced by wood and iron.
Arians are high-achievers and take their work seriously. A streamlined, contemporary workspace defined by functional yet stylish furnishing is a must for an Arian. A cool monochrome steel desk or a vibrant red wooden desk would go very well with a luscious, deep rug balancing the Arian’s energy with a sense of calm.
A gallery wall is another primary feature that is required in an Arian home to show off art collections or prize photographs. Trendsetting and abstract pieces of art and sculptures would also find pride of place on an Arian’s shelf.
A large bookshelf would also fit right as they generally enjoy reading when they are not busy rearranging or organising their homes.
Walk-in closets are definitely a part of the list as this gives the Arian plenty of space to declutter and keep in line with their high standards of cleanliness.
It’s no surprise that Arians love fire. That means sleek candle holders made of copper or brass and glass lanterns, which exude warmth yet are spartan in looks would be a fixture for the Arian home. If there is space, the Arian would love to have a feature fireplace that would encourage socialising and fulfilling conversations, things that Arians love.
Since Arians love movement, having a game room, home gym or a meditation room would complete their home. Most Arians enjoy physical activity and having a dedicated space to play and expend their energy would make them immensely happy.
