Air Signs

"Air Signs — Aquarius, Gemini and Libra — are known for being the non-stop thinkers of the Zodiac. They need constant flows of information to keep their minds occupied, so they’re usually big readers. A pair of bookends for their extensive home library or wall decor with an art or literary reference will keep them interested. They also love to stay up-to-date on trends, so any knick-knack with a fun, colorful pattern is a perfect last-minute touch."

Water Signs

"Water Signs — Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio — have endless supplies of emotions. They feel everything and pick up on the subtlest energies of any environment. Insight often comes to them in the form of dreams, so a mobile over their bed or crib could spark inspiration. They’re also the true introverts of the Zodiac. Comfy pillows and blankets will help them feel their best when they need to stay at home and recharge. "

Earth Signs

"For Earth Signs — Virgo, Capricorn and Taurus — everything has to serve a function. Think of home essentials, such as storage bins or mirrors. They also love getting organized with to-do lists, and they’ll need notebooks to keep track of everything. Taurines are especially tactile, so rugs with soft textures will be right up their alleys."

Fire Signs

"Fire Signs — Leo, Sagittarius and Aries — are very passionate and full of energy. They’re always on the go, starting new projects or planning their next big adventures. Experiencing other cultures helps shape their strong opinions, so wall art or little trinkets that reflect worldly travels would be perfect. As for color palette, think bold, bright and fiery tones that you can’t miss. Fire signs rarely go unnoticed. "
