Decorating our homes can be a fun process as we try to represent who we are through home decor. While we may have particular themes, patterns, or concepts we want to bring to life, colors play a big part in what we want to say. While it makes sense to lean towards colors you're fond of, have you ever thought to look into the power color of your zodiac sign?
Each zodiac sign has a myriad of items associated with them, including power colors. These hues don't necessarily have to be your favorite colors, but they do inspire and embody certain characteristics that highlight each sign's personality. There are plenty of ways to use these colors around your house, and you might be surprised at the results! Check out your zodiac sign below and see how you can incorporate your power color into your home.

You're always one to do things a little off-script, so find some blue books to stack on your table or hang some interesting artwork where blue is the main focus. Especially when you want to be creative, blue stirs up some interesting concepts for you while also keeping you calm and grounded.

The color yellow is associated with optimism, excitement, friendship, and intellect; what better way to describe a Gemini? Yellow is a bright shade that quite literally lights up any room. While it may not be a color you'd paint your whole house with, using it in small doses can make a giant impact. Incorporate yellow into the areas of your home that need a boost or that you go to when you need some cheering up.

It would be best to introduce silver into spaces you want to share with the important people in your life or places you want to add some elegance. While silver accents are an easy staple to work in subtly, you can also be a bit bolder with chrome-plated tables and frames. A large, ornate, silver mirror would also be a perfect addition!

Paint the front door a gorgeous tangerine shade so that guests feel excited and welcome from the moment they arrive. It's a risky color, but who better to pull it off than a trendsetter like yourself?

Gray is a color mostly viewed as conservative, neutral, and strong, so it makes sense why it would be the power color of Capricorn! Gray strikes a balance between the light, airy feeling of white and the darker, more reserved color or black. As a Capricorn, you often struggle with burning the candle at both ends, so implement gray wherever you go to rest, such as your bedroom or an office. While mixing gray with other colors will allow you to customize your environment, utilizing a gray desk or bed frame is a great base you can do so much with later on!
