Decorating your home can be an exciting experience, and certainly is considered one of the most fun parts of living in your own space. Nonetheless, we all have our own distinct tastes and preferences on how to show off our personalities in our homes. It can be a bit daunting for some, especially if they aren’t sure where to start.
Taurus signs are known for having exquisite taste and style, but that doesn’t mean decorating is entirely easy. Trying to decide how to bring your tasteful, dependable, self to life in your space can present its challenges. Before you get started, check out these 10 things every taurus needs to know before decorating a home.
Invest in Key Statement Pieces
It can be easy to grab a bunch of small things that you like and fill up your home, but you know that quality is better than quantity. Find a few statement pieces that inspire you and work around them.
Don’t Overload Your Home with Stuff
You have a tendency to hold onto things with the idea that you need them. Sometimes it’s because you’re rewarding yourself, others times it’s because you had a bad day, but you seem to believe that you need so much stuff that you genuinely don’t. Try to get rid of some things you know aren’t necessary, and work on showcasing the ones that are. It will give you so much more to work with.
Embrace Natural Color Palettes
As an Earth sign, it’s no surprise that you’re drawn to earthier shades. You don’t stick to merely green and brown, though. You also feel a pull towards lighter shades of pink and floral colors that pair well with the grounded hues. You feel most at home whenever you feel surrounded by nature, and these color palettes are a great place to start.
Comfort Should Be a Big Focus
Let’s be honest, you like to be comfortable. It’s a pretty strong priority for you, and there is nothing wrong with that! This is a place where you’ll spend most of your time, so you need to make sure it’s cozy to be in. Invest in some extra comfortable furniture and large, soft rugs. Don’t be afraid to include a larger bed in your room with silk sheets, because we know rest is a crucial component for you.
Invest in Lovely, Practical Pieces
You don’t mind splurging on things every now and then, and that’s perfectly fine. You just need to make sure that the things you’re dropping more money on are functional and beautiful! Whether it’s furniture that doubles as storage, baskets that have stunning designs, or decorated shelves that can hold some of your things, make sure that you’re getting useful items, too.
Don’t Be Afraid to Get Detailed
For some people, less is more, which makes sense when it comes to stuff you don’t need. Yet, you have a sense of style and organization that allows you to take so much and turn it into something gorgeous. You don’t have to be minimalist to pull together a lovely home, and it’s not where you shine. Don’t be afraid to get detailed in your designs, and don’t worry about it being too much. You know how to make things work together.
Your Kitchen is Essential, Stock it Well
While your living room and bedroom are important areas, your kitchen needs some love, too. We know you enjoy cooking and putting dishes together, so be sure that your kitchen is getting as much love as the rest of the home. Invest in high-quality kitchen appliances, and make sure you have plenty of seating when you invite others over
There’s No Shame in Sticking to Something Classic
While designing our homes is a great way to be expressive and creative, there is something to be said about sticking with something classic or traditional. This doesn’t mean settling for something boring—it simply means that if you want to lean into neutral color palettes or simple setups, you should. This is your space to feel comfortable, and you do have an appreciation for timeless and practical concepts.
Trust Your Instincts, You Have a Great Eye!
One of the hardest things to embrace when it comes to interior decorating is knowing where to go or where to start. While it can be easy to get online and try to mimic what everyone else is doing, don’t forget to check in with what you actually want. You have incredible taste, and you are a natural at spotting beautiful things. Don’t doubt yourself when it comes to putting ideas together.
Pair Earthy, Natural Styles with Glamorous Elements
The Earth sign in you is drawn to grounded colors and neutrals and natural fabrics and foundations. However, you also have a glamorous streak in you, and you don’t have to suppress that side of yourself. Applying practical concepts such as a large mattress with neutral tones for the comforter and sheets and pairing it with someone like a flowing canopy can show off both sides of your personality without having to sacrifice either aspect.
