Aries tend to have strong personalities and like to be number one. They are bold, competitive, and love a challenge.
To match their strong personalities, bold colours like red and mustard are the perfect way to make a statement. When it comes to home decor, we suggest pairing these paint colours with more neutral shades in your furniture, accessories and blinds. Blind options with the widest range of colours are our range of Roller Blinds and Vertical Blinds, both of which are great for controlling natural light and enhancing these warm paint colours.

Taurus are often people who love to relax and treat themselves. They love to be surrounded by nature and soft, soothing aromas.
The best colours for Taurus, are green and light pink, complementary colours which go nicely together. To pair these colours, we recommend choosing one as the base colour for your walls and using the second colour as an accent colour. Your accent colour is great for any items like pillows or candles which can help make the space pop.

If you live for spontaneity, being playful, and tend to be erratic at times, you might be a Gemini. Geminis have a thirst for knowledge and are curious about everything.
Playful and light colours like yellow and blue are perfect for Geminis. To make a space really work with this colour combination, you can experiment with different shades, darker shades so they're not so bright or lighter shades to create a more pastel palette and brighten your home!

Cancers are often people who are naturally intuitive about their surroundings and need to build trust before opening up to others.
Classic colours like silver and white are perfect for Cancers, and work well together to create a sleek and modern space. If the silver feels too much, a grey tone would look just as nice! A blind option for your Cancer-inspired space could be a Sheer Curtain or our Vertisheer Blinds. Both options soften natural light coming into the space to give the room a soft glow, nicely complementing those white and silver tones.

Do you know someone who is the life of the party and will do anything to be in the spotlight? Perhaps they're a Leo! While Leos have a flair for the dramatics, they're loving, passionate and incredibly loyal people to be around.
Bold colours like gold and purple match the Leo personality perfectly and can create an entirely different atmosphere depending on how you use them in your space.
To create a striking, more luxurious feeling space, go with the gold for your paint colour, and add pops of purple into your decor. If you're after a more moody space, then purple is great for creating a cosy atmosphere. Gold could be incorporated through pillows, a throw blanket, or wall art.

Do you like to live a mysterious and elusive life away from the prying eyes of others? Perhaps your star sign is Scorpio.
The best colours for Scorpios are red and black, a very striking colour combination, so if you're not sure how you can style your space, we've got you covered!
To incorporate red, a feature wall against neutral paint colours is a great way to go. If it's still too much you could opt for choosing a less saturated shade of red.
Black is a great colour to accent other features in your space, such as lamps, wall art, or rugs. It could also be used in your curtains or blinds as black is a very absorbent colour, perfect for keeping you cool in the summer months!
If you're creating a colour scheme for a kids' bedroom or play room, a black paint colour could be incorporated as a chalk board by using chalk board paint, creating a functional and creative space for little ones!
