Hey baby, what’s your sign? We’re enthralled with the hidden art of astrology and how the stars align with personalities. Just for fun, we’ve put together a reference guide to adding decor for each sun sign. Since this is the month of Sagittarius, we’ll give you tips for adding touches for this globe-trotting gal. If this isn’t your sign, think of a special person in your life that might enjoy a thoughtful Sagittarius-related gift instead. We’ll add an installment once a month for each sign, so stay tuned for more!
Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21
When furnishing their homes, think happy thoughts. Optimism is one of Sagittarius’ best traits. Their colors are light blue and purple, but they also like items in bright colors like chartreuse and hot pink! Our Love + Relationships Feng Shui decor fit the bill perfectly. Don’t read too much into the flower for December (Narcissus), it symbolizes self-esteem most of all. If you’re decorating the bedroom, check out Bed, Bath & Beyond’s Pulaski Glamour Upholstered Headboard in Velvet Plum. Yummy!
Make space for entertaining at home! With their generous, ambitious, and freedom-loving personalities, Sagittarians are great with people. Invest in a great dining space or bar station. Take a look at our record player and media cabinet ideas for a perfect little nook treatment. Or, get the girl a wine rack! We love the Wine Enthusiast 144-Bottle Rack for this personality, especially. Trust me, they will use it!
Say It Like You Mean It
Their symbol is the Archer and they are know for being direct and open to new ideas. Sagittarius rules religious aspects of life and decor should reflect a Zen-like quality. Take a look at our article on meditation and start shopping for incense! Little items like World Market’s Soapstone Medallion Incense Burners are a nice touch here and there. Go ahead and go Bohemian with low tables and lots of cushions. The more comfortable the space, the better.
Give Me Some Air!
Sagittarius is an air sign, so they tend to be on the move. The archer is also the international sign for travel, so travel items that also work as decor are perfect. Think of displaying vintage suitcases or cameras (that can be used as well). A suitcase bench, like this Blue Linen Page Upholstered Bench are a nice touch in any bedroom. Collectibles from travels around the world should be on display for this globe-trotting sign.
Home Office, Anyone?
Higher learning is also appreciated, so a great desk or bookends would be a nice idea. A Sagittarius has a curious nature, so those countless how-to books and unfinished projects should be well-organized. The home office should be high-tech and have international appeal. Pier 1 has a pretty Large Globe on Stand that is currently on sale. In their own words, “There’s nothing better to inspire dreams of far-flung places than a well-placed globe.” Also, if you’re into Feng Shui, check out the decor guide for the Knowledge + Wisdom center. Enhance this area for sure.
Hostess With the Mostess
Come on over! Sagittarius folks tend to like company, so get the guest room ready. Their home and furnishings should be low-maintenance most of all, since they are rarely there! Our article on Pampa cushions is a great example of what this sign loves – comfiness and global artisanry.
Finally, pay attention to what is going on outside of the home as well. A Sagittarius is certainly a nature-lover and a garden or fresh flowers are always a welcome addition. Take a look at some of our patio party prep ideas for ways to enhance outdoor spaces. For the natural hostess, an easy-to-care-for plant (aka succulents) are always a great idea. Need a cool basket? We like World Market’s Cocoa and Orange Hyacinth Jasmine Jar Baskets with their chunky braided handles. Your Sag’ lady will appreciate the fact that they are made in the Philippines, too! Time to book another trip, now that you mention it..
