Aries: March 21 – April 19
There’s nothing subtle about you, Aries, and your kitchen should be no different! Let your fiery personality shine through with bold colors, eye-popping patterns and trendy textures. Just make sure you stick to just a few statement pieces, like chunky light fixtures or neon stools, and keep the rest of the room neutral.
Taurus: April 20 – May 20
Grow a kitchen as green as your thumb, tree-hugging Taurus. To bring the outdoors in, scatter one of these eight easy-care plants on shelves, counters, windowsills and even in the center of the dining table. You can also hang framed plant prints on the wall to complete the secret garden feel.
Gemini: May 21 – June 20
Oh hey, hostess with the mostess. As a Gemini, you’re happiest when you’re surrounded by friends and family, so your kitchen should be prepped to party with an oversized island and plenty of spare seating. For optimal socializing, go with an airy, open-plan concept, too. Then follow these do’s and don’ts when you host your first get-together in your new space.
Cancer: June 21 – July 22
Channel your inner Joanna Gaines with a cozy cottage kitchen. Pale hues, a hint of shiplap and earthy eucalyptus wreaths play to the shabby chic vibe, while a stylish stenciled backsplash adds visual interest. Want to copy the pretty pattern for yourself? Try one of these 30 beautiful backsplash ideas.
Leo: July 23 – August 22
Ruled by the sun, this sign is all about bright colors, tons of natural light and glowy gold accents. Work the warm metal into your kitchen by replacing the hardware on your cabinets or sink, opting for shiny storage jars or even dipping bar stools in gold paint. Big bulb lights help illuminate the space, too, for an inviting glow.
Virgo: August 23 – September 22
Less is more in the life of a Virgo, especially when it comes to your decorating style. Stick to a monochromatic color scheme (you can’t go wrong with all white), choose pieces with simple, clean lines like these sleek stools and then pare down your decor to the bare basics. For more help mastering the minimalist trend, follow this guide to decluttering your kitchen.
Libra: September 23 – October 22
From crystal chandeliers to elegant marble countertops, you love the finer things life (and in your kitchen). Create a luxurious Libra-approved lair by trading basic bar stools for linen-covered chairs and decorating with glass and silver accents. On a budget? These 10 easy upgrades look expensive, but cost next-to-nothing.
Scorpio: October 23 – November 21
Raw wood shelves + deep navy cabinets = the perfect mix of modern and mysterious. While you like the warm feel of natural elements, you also have a sensual side, Scorpio, so incorporate dark, moody hues into your kitchen’s color scheme. Just stay away from these 13 outdated trends when you’re decorating.
Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21
True to your sign’s free-spirited nature, you prefer an eclectic eatery, so don’t be afraid to play around with mismatched patterns and textures. Roll out a tribal print rug, use woven wicker baskets for storage and line your shelves with assorted knick-knacks. (Think: everything from pretty plates to a clay camel figurine.)
Capricorn: December 22 – January 19
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That’s what you live by, classic Capricorn. You lean toward the traditional rather than the trendy, meaning you like elegant antiques, clean architecture and rich shades like forest green or slate gray. Accessorize with pops of wood (we heart the exposed beams in this picture!) and a few expertly-placed vintage vases.
Aquarius: January 20 – February 18
Waterfall island? Check. Exposed light bulbs? Check. Contemporary cabinets? Check. For a modern space that’s stylish but not sterile, add a few natural elements, like a marble backsplash, light wood floors or a touch of greenery. Bonus: An edgy Aquarius will love these fresh (and functional) ideas for making your kitchen easier to cook in.
Pisces: February 19 – March 20
Karma’s a beach for you, peaceful Pisces. Turn your kitchen into a spa-worthy sanctuary with cool colors like blues and greens, soft lighting and warm mixed metals. Keep the counters clear of clutter to cultivate more calm, using one of these 40 easy organizing ideas.
