Decorating your home can be a fun and exciting experience, especially when you can show off your personality in the process. While we may look to the latest trends to start the decorating process, we all have our preferences and ideas about how to make our home look stylish. While some signs are known to have a natural talent for decorating, other signs might have a different experience: a great example being the playful, excitable Gemini.
Gemini signs are creative and flexible people who enjoy a fast-paced, ever-changing scene. They have a constant stream of fantastic ideas, which can make decorating their home overwhelming if they don’t know how to bring those concepts to life. If you’re a Gemini trying to decorate your space, here are ten things you should know before you get started!

Yellow Is Your Color
Every zodiac has a powerful color that highlights their best qualities. Yours happens to be yellow!
While some might hesitate using this citrus shade, your personality tends to outshine others, so it's no surprise your power color would, too.
Yellow radiates warmth, happiness, intellect, and friendship—it's a bright option that suits you well. Whether you decide to use wallpaper where yellow is the dominant shade or add some sunny decor accents, this hue will undoubtedly brighten the atmosphere in your home.

Make Sure There Is Always Space to Learn
As a Gemini, you know you’re constantly trying to learn new things or more about what you already know. When decorating your space, ensure you have an area that dedicates itself to doing just that!
Whether it’s a small home office with a computer, putting an organizational system in place, or creating a quiet nook where you can escape and read, a place to soak up knowledge is vital for you.
You can also create an entertainment space, with a television and other connected devices to ensure you always stay in the know about what's happening in the world.

Variety Is Your Best Friend
Decorating can be a bit overwhelming because you don’t want to commit to one particular concept. You’re always looking to change things up.
When deciding how to adorn any room in your home, don’t be afraid to pick items that can be easily switched out or that can be used in more than one way. Reversible pieces (rugs, pillows, blankets) can be simple ways to freshen things up. You'll be happy to have different options available whenever you inevitably feel the need to change things up.

Showcase Your Current Interests
You like to take an interest in multiple things at once, so why not make them part of your decor? Try featuring some new books you’ve read (or even an entire new bookcase), showcase a DIY project you’re proud of, or hang specific items on the wall to start a conversation. It will make your home feel much more connected to who you are rather than just a place to live.Continue to 5 of 10 below.

Invest in Furniture That Promotes Conversation
Speaking of starting a conversation, we know how much you value discussions when you have others over. Investing and arranging furniture to promote conversation is something you should keep in mind.
A rounded dining room table would be a great addition or some comfortable chairs in your living room. If you’re sticking with the furniture you already own, make sure you place them where they face each other so that it’s easy to communicate. You want your home to feel open and free-flowing so that others feel comfortable and ready to chat.

Balance Out Those Bold Colors
Gemini signs have an eccentric style to them, and you’re more likely to pull off brighter hues than others. You certainly shouldn't shy away from other warm colors—not just yellow. Oranges, pinks, and reds are all great options.
However, it doesn’t hurt to pair up bold colors with a neutral backdrop so they can truly shine. Plus, it will add some dimension and complexity to whichever room you're in, which we know is perfect for you.

Don’t Be So Serious
Decorating your home doesn’t have to be strict or reserved to look nice. While some may prefer to stick to safer ideas and minimalist concepts, that doesn't mean you have to follow the same path for a beautiful home.
You have a playful personality, so why not show it off? Decorating your home can be a part of expressing who you are, so feel free to play around with textures, patterns, and styles. Experimenting with your home decor is half the fun!

Remember That Convenience Is Key
There is no reason to do things the hard way if you don’t have to, right? You love items that provide multiple functions as well as aesthetics, so incorporating some smart devices around your home could be a great staple to add. If you’re able to find stylish furniture that also doubles as storage, then even better! Anything that will help keep you and your home running smoothly is worth looking into.

Don't Be Afraid to Let the Light In
You don't like to feel restricted, and there are plenty of decorating options that can help you create a spacious, bright atmosphere.
If you have sources of natural light, try to highlight them with sheer curtains. Adding decorative mirrors in smaller areas can also give the illusion of a larger space. Leaning towards brighter colors can also open up a room instead of closing it off with darker tones.
