It's no secret that statement pieces are often looked to as a perfect step into designing the rest of your room. Whether it's a large piece of artwork, a distinct furniture selection, or a bold color scheme, having something that radiates your taste and personality is necessary. While we all have our limits as to what we choose, there are some pieces that we are willing to spend a little extra cash to bring it home with us.

While our preferences tend to differ from person to person, your zodiac sign can give you some perspective on what you're drawn to, as well as a glimpse into your personality that you want to shine through. Take a look at your sign below and see which statement piece you would be willing to splurge on.

Aquarius (January 20 to February 18): Oversized Artwork 

When it comes to making a statement, you like to leave people with more questions than answers. Bringing in an oversized art piece gives people a chance to talk about their interpretations and for you to share your own. You like to inspire conversation and open up other's minds, so what better way than a piece that will demand conversations about differing perspectives?

Pisces (February 19 to March 20): Hanging Chair

You may not care about being bold, but you do enjoy being a bit unconventional. A relaxing swing chair that suspends from the ceiling is the perfect combination of relaxation and eclectic, which goes with your vibe exceptionally well. You like your space to reflect a calm and collected state of mind where you can feel free to daydream and reflect. It might seem unnecessary, but if you're going to splurge, choose something as idealistic and whimsical as you.

Aries (March 21 to April 19): Bold Accent Wall

You aren't afraid to take risks in your life, and the same applies to your home. While there is no shortage of routes you could take, an accent wall screams Aries energy. Choosing one wall to showcase a bright color or pattern is a relatively easy way to make a statement. Yet, it can be challenging to pull off without some confidence. Your personality proves you have no problems in that department, and picking a shade that radiates power and liveliness will cause heads to turn.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20): Clawfoot Bathtub

You are drawn to luxurious and practical applications, which honestly is a shock to no one. While you may have your share of decor items in your home that draw attention to your taste, you enjoy making a statement that is practical as well as indulgent. Entering a bathroom and seeing a clawfoot bathtub is an obvious option for you; its elegant appearance will have guests talking without bombarding them when they walk through the door. 

Gemini (May 21 to June 20): Funky Bookshelf

You enjoy sharing your knowledge with others, and your personality as a whole likes to dominate conversations with the newest information you come across. You want your statement piece to do the same, so investing in something like an eclectic bookshelf that can't help but draw attention is a surefire way to get your guests talking. As a bonus, it gives you a chance for you casually to bring up your latest interests into conversation.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22): Gorgeous Area Rug

Rugs are a classic statement piece, so it makes sense that a timeless sign like yourself would be drawn to it. You enjoy making things cozy and bringing everyone in together, so a giant area rug with an interesting pattern that ties everything together is a natural fit for you.

Leo (July 23 to August 22): Floor-Length Giant Mirror

You have to start your day with your best foot forward and making sure you look the way you want to project yourself to the rest of the world. You bring light into any room you walk into, so investing in a decorative, full-length mirror screams Leo energy. As a stand-alone piece, it opens up the room and makes the possibilities seem limitless, which is precisely the kind of atmosphere you want to create. 

Virgo (August 23 to September 22): Velvet Storage Ottoman

The devil is in the details, and you know it. You aren't interested in having a piece just for the sake of it; if it's going to be part of your home, it has to put in work to be functional. A classy eye-catching ottoman does just the trick by intriguing your guests while also providing storage space or an additional place to sit. You may not choose something insanely bright or quirky. Still, your classic taste will be sure to grab attention without overpowering the rest of your decor (which we know you've taken a pain-staking amount of time putting together). 

Libra (September 23 to October 22): Sparkling Chandelier

Nothing defines elegance like a chandelier, and who better to embrace the concept than you, Libra? Chandeliers bring an air of class and sophistication to a room and allow you to turn any night of the week into a fancy gathering. Whether you go for a large light fixture or even a slightly smaller option, the romance and opulence will radiate throughout the room. As a plus, they will undoubtedly draw many compliments on your behalf. 

Scorpio (October 23 to November 21): Elaborate Headboard

Headboards aren't exactly necessary to keep a bed together, but they make a statement that is hard to ignore. Whether you go with something lush like velvet, or something more dramatic and ornate, an oversized headboard functions as an art piece in and of itself. It makes a statement to anyone who has the opportunity to glance in your room. Besides, your bed is the place you go to unwind after a long day, so why not bring your statement piece into a place where only you (and select others) will be able to admire it?

Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21): Giant Wall Tapestry

Trying to pin down your style is not the easiest thing, given your constant change in interests and ideas. Picking a statement piece for your home can be a difficult challenge then. You strive for flexibility and uniqueness, and you thrive when you have a reason to discuss your travels or current interests. A giant wall tapestry that comes from a recent traveling adventure, or that owes its style to a culture you're interested in is perfect for you. It's not a permanent fixture and can be easily swapped out if you're feeling impulsive, but gives the ideal opportunity to share about your travels and experiences with your friends and family.

Capricorn (December 22 to January 19): Luxury Executive Desk

You want everyone to know you mean business. Sure, your work ethic means you could work efficiently from anywhere, but choosing an elegant yet professional desk that stands out gives you an edge that others might not expect coming from you. Who says that business has to mean dull, right?
