Capricorn: December 22 – January 19
The sign of the goat, their most likable trait is their steadiness. A Capricorn tends to prefer furnishings and decor that will outlast fads and trends. Family heirlooms and quality antiques are most appreciated by this non-nonsense sign.
Piece by Piece
They tend to use strategy instead of force, and are reserved, patient and prudent. Purchase items for a Capricorn thoughtfully and with taste. You will never see a room in their home mimicking page 6 from the catalog.
This is the sign that governs reputation and career standing; especially within the community. The home office of a Capricorn should be stately and have a slight masculine touch. A heavy desk and an ink blotter will always set the right tone. We like Pier One’s Madeline Antique White Desk (currently on sale). Its Louis XIV styling is perfect and the quality is apparent in the drawer and leg details.
Darker colors work well, as long as they are brightened up with lighter florals. Take a look at our article on floral curtains for some ideal inspiration. Any improvement to existing decor is appreciated by a Capricorn and All-American branding gives a nice country touch. In fact, Ralph Lauren’s Hoxton Collection is currently on sale at 40% off which makes adding a quilt or a few throw pillows into the mix easy. Bathrooms are also an easy way to add special details while staying on budget. The right shower curtain and a few antiques do the trick nicely.
The art of the craft is never lost on this sign. Hardworking Capricorns also appreciate the investment of time and work in handmade items. From craft beers to country quilts, the devil is in the details. Our girlfriend Aynsley at Honymfin makes beautiful, meticulous quilts at her Etsy shop. A great heirloom in the making or baby shower gift! From our favorite Capricorn to yours 😉
Never Too Many Shoes
Also, think organization for this disciplined and acquisitive sign. Investing in the closet of a Capricorn is money well spent! Cedar-lined drawers and shelf dividers are just what the doctor ordered! Take a look at Bed Bath & Beyond for luxe fabric shelf dividers, wood clothing hangers in cherry, or cedar fresh stackable shoe racks. Even adding a basket or two can be an appreciated organizational touch.
Happy New Year
Finally, the flower for January babies is the carnation, symbolizing admiration and gratitude. In a pinch, take up a large bouquet of carnations for your Capricorn birthday girl. Add a fabric ribbon or some special handmade gift and she will be the one to appreciate it most!
