design trends from the aughts for each zodiac illustration

The early aughts was an exciting time in fashion, culture, and home design. While every season has its standouts in what was popular and what was less inspired, it's no surprise when old ideas revive again. Though some designs are better left in the past, there are a few that could easily make a resurgence. For each zodiac sign, some of those trends appeal more than others.

Take a look at your zodiac sign below and see which trend from the beginning of the century you would love to bring back in your own home!

Aquarius (January 20 to February 18): Eclectic Decor

The early 2000s asked us to step out of our comfort zones a bit, and you still thrive in that mindset. While keeping everything perfectly matched works for some people, you like things to be inconsistent and diverse. You would love to see this style come back, especially since it gives you the perfect outlet to show off your quirky nature. Whether you find them at flea markets, given to you by others, or stumble upon a great find, you enjoy the challenge of bringing unique and unexpected pieces together. You like to surprise others when they meet you, and this trend is one you would love to see thrown into the mix again (especially since you know you'll do it the best).

Pisces (February 19 to March 20): Shabby Chic

Comfortable, vintage, and whimsical: though these could easily describe your personality, it also perfectly encapsulates the shabby chic trend that bombarded the beginning of the last decade. Light colors, furniture that gave a historical and worn down appearance, and soft fabrics that screamed coziness truly trademark the concept. With your old soul nature and free-flowing vibe, this is a trend that you would bring back without hesitation.

Aries (March 21 to April 19): Open Concept Designs

You like to have room to express yourself, so what better way to make that happen than by embracing open concept designs? Living rooms took center stage in this during the early 2000 craze, and it's no wonder—these designs give the room a larger than life appeal that make it available for a wide range of options. You like to change pace frequently, and having a closed-off, cluttered room makes you feel a bit stifled. You would kill to have open-concept designs be a front-runner again.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20): Stainless Steel Appliances

Not all high-profile designs have to be complicated, and the stainless steel appliance trend proved that hands down. Stainless steel appliances have a way of looking classy without trying too hard, so it makes sense that everyone was filling their homes with silver devices. They don't need to be replaced in both flexibility of style (they go with everything) and in sturdiness (the long-lasting material keeps them around) speak to you, and you are ready to bring them back into your home once again.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20): Accent Walls

You aren't afraid to command attention when you want it, and in the early aughts, this was encouraged. Feature walls were a way to show off your personality without taking over the whole room, and you need it back in the design rotation. From picking a bold color to hanging up striking pieces of art or murals, you like to have a space that brings out who you are. You know you could rock a feature wall and do it well, and you would happily bring it back.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22): Tuscan-Style Kitchens

Tuscan-style kitchens made their mark notably in the 2000s, but you would like to see a resurgence of that concept. The warm, earthy, rustic tones associated with this style bring to mind a cozy mindset, and you relate to it. You like to have a space that feels separate from the chaos and stress of the outside world, and this style had a particular knack for invoking that idea. You see no issue with modern design ideas, but this classic design shows off your warmth and relaxing nature.

Leo (July 23 to August 22): Granite Countertops

Granite is the busy design that was anywhere and everywhere, and people adored it. Much like you, you know a good thing when you see it, and you know that some things are naturally timeless and can be incorporated without looking tacky. You would love to see granite countertops come back around, given their sophisticated look and long-lasting sturdiness.

Virgo (August 23 to September 22): Chocolate Brown Color Palettes

If anyone could rock a dark brown color palette, it would have to be you. Earth signs naturally gravitate towards these shades anyway, but it takes a keen eye and some intense fixation to bring dark brown into a room and make it look incredible. You have the perfect knack for making it feels sophisticated and calming rather than dull, and you would jump at the chance to have that opportunity once more.

Libra (September 23 to October 22): Damask Prints

The damask print, how could anyone ever forget? Just enough whimsy to catch your attention, yet so ubiquitous that you could use it just about everywhere. In the early 2000s, that's exactly what people did: their walls, bedspreads, even accent designs. Damask print has a certain nostalgia attached to it, but you would love to see a revival of it again to give it your taste. Damask could range from bold prints to pastels, but it always provided a sense of uniformity without forcing it. You like the aura of sophistication it gives off without going over the top.

Scorpio (October 23 to November 21): Dark Wood Furniture

While some might view dark wood furniture as a bit of a country vibe, you know that it evokes other ideas as well. Dark wood styles often gave a slightly mysterious, old cabin feel to rooms. It sets the tone for a cozy space without being too saturated or attention-seeking. You would love to see dark wood furniture come back as a trend again; You enjoy things being a bit on the neutral side, and you know how to use those tones without it being too much or too dreary.

Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21): Excessive Neutrals

While neutrals may not seem like a classic Sagittarius move, you want them back because they work with everything. You change your interests and passions often, so you don't have the time or patience to redo the color scheme every single time you have a whim. Excessive neutrals are something you'd love to have back because it gives you the best foundation to change things up and show what you're thinking about at any given time, without breaking the bank in the process.

Capricorn (December 22 to January 19): Edison Light Bulbs

Home design for you doesn't merely fixate on how something looks, but how it functions and benefits you. You burn the candle at both ends, given that you spend so much of your time invested in work or other projects. While tons of lighting options exist today, one trend from back in the 2000s that you would love to bring back is Edison light bulbs. These light bulbs give an old-time vibe that doesn't shine too much light in the home but works efficiently to get things done. You don't need a ton of bright light to flood your space; you want something that sets a particular atmosphere. You like things that are simple, classic, and give off a vibe of intelligence.
