Do you love do-it-yourself home projects? Or are you better off hiring a decorator? Are you more beach house chic or country charm? See what your Sun sign has to say about how you approach decorating your home!

Aries
Rams love a challenge. After all, you could probably buy a fixer-upper and flip it into a profit. However, don't expect things to go smoothly, for Aries people have a knack for attracting all kinds of obstacles. Your best bet is to tackle as many projects as you can handle on your own; only hire contractors you can rely on. Otherwise, sparks might fly!

Taurus
You love beautiful things and appreciate the finer things in life. Bulls also have a strong connection to nature, so don't hesitate to bring natural elements into your home -- hardwood floors, cherry furniture and leaf prints are just a few ideas. While you're at it, go ahead and splurge on some key pieces that could double as investments.

Gemini
Gemini folks don't have a specific style -- rather, these eclectic individuals like a little of this and a little of that. One thing the Twins can't be without, however, is plenty of room for their books, so built-in shelves will be a terrific addition to your home. Just beware of initiating improvements that end up dragging on and on, since Gemini is a notorious sign for starting projects that have a way of languishing into eternity.

Cancer
Your home is your pride and joy. Pictures of family and special touches that hold sentimental value are perfect for a Cancer's home. Whether you like antiques or prefer to decorate with gifts and hand-me-downs from loved ones, the history and memories each item inspires hold great importance for you. Lighting is also important for Cancer, so think cozy, soft and comforting.

Leo
Leo people have a true knack for making their home a kingdom that reflects their creative juices. Why not have a painting party and invite a few friends to help spruce up those drab white walls? If you do decide to hire a decorator, make sure you work closely with them so everything will reflect your unique personal style. Vintage posters and murals could be fun accents for you to play with.

Your home needs to be orderly and reflective of your practical nature, so why not go big on great closets and organizational systems? Virgo folks also need a peaceful sanctuary to restore and renew themselves. A comfy couch, a big bathtub and a king-size bed accompanied by mellow wall colors are all ideas for ways you can create a healthy environment conducive to relaxing your busy mind.

Libra
Think of your entertaining needs when decorating your home. A big kitchen with plenty of space to gather friends is ideal for you; shabby chic is also right up your alley. Distinctly feminine touches such as florals, overstuffed chairs and beautiful throw pillows are all ideal additions.

Scorpio
As a Scorpio, you can't keep everything the same continuously. Your environment needs change and renewal to keep you fresh, so consider redecorating from time to time. Deep, rich colors are excellent options for Scorpions. Try a scarlet color for your dining area, or a royal blue for your study or home office. Dark wood furniture resonates nicely with your personality as well.

Sagittarius
Your energy and enthusiasm for DIY projects can allow you to save some serious cash by avoiding decorators and contractors. Meanwhile, your sunny disposition helps you laugh in the face of even the toughest remodel! When decorating, include items from your travels such as masks, vases, exotic throw rugs and maps.

Capricorn
You're well-suited to hiring contractors or decorators because you're certain to get your money's worth -- you know how to stretch a dollar, and you always make sure you're getting top-quality goods. Goats don't like clutter, so be sure to pack up and donate anything you haven't used in the past two years. And if you have children or pets, stay away from having anything white in your home -- your blood pressure can't take the consequences!

Aquarius
Do you love mid century accents? How about a collection of doll houses? Whatever your favorite thing is, be sure to incorporate your own quirkiness into your home decor. Don't be afraid to give your place a makeover with your personality. Even if you don't have a knack for decorating -- it's not something Aquarians are known for -- you can still infuse your home with your passions.

Pisces
Employ those you trust to help bring your imaginative vision to life. Bring in accents from the ocean, or think beach house or river cabin -- anything that reflects your Water sign nature. Your style is always comfortable and comforting, so everyone enjoys coming over to your place to relax. Finally, make sure you put extra effort into making your bedroom special. Soft colors, comforting accents, a sound machine and maybe even a dream journal will set you up nicely.
