Sagittarius is a sign that loves to celebrate and make an exuberant splash. No wonder we want to deck the halls with light displays and sparkly ornaments when the Sun enters that sign and the holidays shift into high gear.
But there’s more to Sagittarian style than that -- and many ways you can integrate some of it into your home any time of year.
If you’ve opted for one of the open-concept or loft-style homes that are so popular now, you already share this freewheeling sign’s sense of style: They need wide open spaces in which to roam! Easy maintenance is important so there’s more time for other things, such as planning the next big party.
Furniture placement should allow for movement -- perhaps even a spontaneous workout session or game of Twister. The Archer may even have a dedicated games area, space permitting. Don’t forget the trophy case or shelf for sports memorabilia, and a wet bar if that’s part of the way you entertain.
If you share a Sagittarian passion for travel and collecting souvenirs, why not show them off? However, this naturally eclectic sign is often blind as to why an African mask collection might be incongruous on a colonial mantelpiece. It’s best to curate your collection and display them appropriately. Confine yourself to only those items that have special meaning and a distinct cultural influence, and you’ll have a winning touch of Sagittarian style.
In the kitchen, this sign probably invented the counter that doubles as a place to grab a quick bite. They often eat on the run or standing up like their symbol, the horse! They also know how important function is, so you can whip up drinks and snacks at a moment’s notice. And in the dining room, there’s always room for one more guest, however last minute, around the table.
The trend towards incorporating designer dog beds into your living room decor was probably invented by a Sagittarian. This sign loves animals and considers any pet an important part of the family. They invariably have those special doors that make it possible for kitty or pooch to come and go freely, too.
Archer-inspired color schemes can go two ways. Many prefer simple, chic, neutral or muted shades that reflect their no-fuss approach. Others make no bones about being eternal kids at heart and display an exuberant riot of Cirque de Soleil-worthy hues, especially royal purple or cobalt blue. A wise compromise might be to use pops of bright, saturated colors in accessories and prints against a more subdued neutral background.
Create a home with an open and friendly atmosphere made for spontaneous entertaining, and you’ve given it some Sagittarian style. Above all else, it should be a place where everyone feels at home!
