Decorating your home can be a fun and exciting experience, especially when you are able to show off your personality in your decor. While we may look to the latest trends to start the decorating process, we all have our own 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 perfect example being the sensitive, creative Pisces.

Pisces are empathetic and kind-hearted, and can sometimes be a little scattered. They have strong creative energy and so many great ideas but can become a bit overwhelmed putting those things into action. If you're a Pisces trying to get started with decorating your home, check out these 10 tips below for some direction.

    Incorporate Calming Color Schemes

    Pisces are known for feeling many things at once, and it can sometimes be overwhelming. Despite the chaos, they tend to be drawn to calming colors, likely to offset the intensity of their inner thought and emotions. Given that you’re a water sign, it’s no surprise that light shades of blue, lavender and white pull you in. Whether you’re trying to decide what to paint the walls or what colors should accompany a neutral backdrop, you will feel most like yourself if you stick to calming color schemes.

    Create a Space That’s Just for You

    You tend to overextend yourself, and you make yourself open to everyone else all the time. While your empathy is something many people adore about you, it’s necessary to take care of yourself, too. Try to pick a space (whether it’s a room or even just a corner) where you can practice some self-care, in whatever way is comfortable for you. It’s beyond important that you have a space that belongs to just you and that distinctly reflects your interests, not just what you think others will like.

    Lean into Natural Fabrics

    In addition to calming colors, you have an affinity for things that look or feel natural. You don’t resonate well with harsh metals or clunky aspects. Investing in lovely wood pieces or incorporating wicker decor into your home gives the space a more natural element.

    Embrace Being Cozy

    Your home is your safe space, and it should absolutely be comfortable! Whether it’s adding plush blankets or soft decorative pillows or comfy rugs that tie the room together, don’t be afraid to make your home a comfortable place.

    Water Influences Are Your Best Friend

    We’ve already mentioned you’re a water sign, and more than other signs, you feel closely connected to it. Having decorative items like a small fountain will bring you a sense of calm if you have space. Also, focus on your bathroom, especially if you have a bathtub. Decorating that space and making it your own will bring out your creative side rather than just as a functional area.

    It’s Okay to Go a Little Eclectic

    You have ideas that range all over the spectrum, and at times you might feel that you’re being a little too quirky. This is a side of yourself that needs to be embraced! Everything doesn’t have to match perfectly, and you don’t have to buy the same decor that everyone else has in their homes. Find pieces that stand out to you and allow them to shine.

    Hygge Really Suits You

    Decorating can be overwhelming, and sometimes we have a hard time figuring out where to start. If you feel like having a theme to work with would be better, consider incorporating Hygge into your home. It focuses on being comfortable, relaxed, and living in the present moment, which are all things you could use.

    Arrange Furniture to Give Yourself Space

    You hate feeling restricted in your life, so it’s no surprise that you wouldn’t want that in your home, either! Regardless of which room you’re working in, make sure you’ve arranged everything to give you plenty of space. Even in small spaces, a little goes a long way.

    Invest in Wicker Baskets to Keep Things Out of the Way

    We’ve already mentioned adding wicker elements for decorative purposes, but adding in baskets allows for an aesthetic but functional purpose. You aren’t always the most organized, but having a few baskets to keep blankets or small items out of the way will really work well for you.

    You’re a Creative, Artistic person—Use It!

    You have such artistic and creative skills, but you often doubt yourself. You shouldn’t—whether you create something yourself to turn into the decor, or find something along the way and repurpose it into something different, you shouldn’t shy away from your creative tendencies.
