Does your star sign impact your interior decorating style? Do you even read your horoscope? Do you take it seriously, or is it just fun for a laugh? I thought it would be interesting (and a bit of fun) to see if your horoscope really does influence your style.
Capricorns are responsible and resourceful. They prefer a classic home, full of solid wood furniture, leather, rattan, stone and natural elements. They will invest in antique and timeless pieces that will last a lifetime. Their home will be filled with heirlooms and sentimental trinkets. Capricorns care about their home and they want their home to reflect their proud achievements in life, without being flashy. It will be impressive without the snobbery. Their favourite colours are brown, indigo, grey and black.
