March 21 to April 19
You lead the pack when it comes to home trends, and your keen eye for all things aesthetically pleasing means you can spot the Next Big Designer ahead of the crowd.

Even when you take things slowly, you’re sure to come up with a beautiful space.
April 20 to May 20
Your ability to rock a small budget is unparalleled—your innate resourcefulness has you in touch with the best vintage shops and most inexpensive furniture sources in the city. Think about planning long-term projects this year and start (like, January!) so you can carve out a calendar that will spread out the spending over the next 12 months. Give yourself permission to splurge from time to time too!
May 21 to June 20
Always restless and forever flitting one from project to the next, you would make a perfect fit for an eclectic home. Channel your non-committal vibes into a living room that has a little bit of everything—curtains from your boho phase, an heirloom coffee table you stole from your ancestral home, and art prints you collected from your latest travels. This year, challenge yourself to come up with a look all your own.
June 21 to July 22
This is the year, Cancer, to finally take the next step in the home and nurturing your green thumb. Whether you’re in the mood for a full backyard (complete with landscape architect and in-house staff) or want to incorporate some hanging plants into your dining area on your own, your natural ability to protect and care for what’s (or who’s) closest to you will translate very well with nature. Time to invest in some plant babies!
July 23 to August 22
Leos are known for showing off, and your flamboyant style is definitely worthy of some attention. 2018 is the year of the house party—where you get a chance to tour your nearest and dearest around your home.

August 23 to September 22
Your never fail to impress the people around you with your impeccable organization skills. Up your game this year and invest in a better label maker for crafty afternoon sessions.

September 23 to October 22
No one knows how to put together a refined space like a Libra. You have a keen awareness of balance and symmetry, and have a knack for putting together a well edited home. Consider upping your game this year by adding some more refinement. Have you added anything to your art collection lately? Have you even started one? Make 2018 the year of celebrating the finer things in life.
October 23 to November 21
The intensity of a Scorpio personality is unquestionable, which means you can get so involved in your home projects that they seem to take over your entire life. Take a step back! Not everything needs to be life-or-death, whether you’re pondering the amount of junk in your attic or deciding on some centerpieces. Channel your passionate moods into using deep, bold colors for every room in the home. Start there and proceed.
November 22 to December 21
Ever the socially responsible homeowner, you make it a point to de-clutter your home and ship extra items off to a worthy cause on the regular. While minimalism is definitely praise-worthy, make sure that you don’t strip your entire home of character completely! Save some knickknacks from your travels, a few vintage pieces from your parents, and other paraphernalia that could be of value in the future. Add a bit of color into your life!
December 22 to January 19
When you’ve got a project on hand, there is no doubt that you’ll be slaving away at it until things get done. While it’s important to follow the rules (and you’re so good at it), know that you also have license to break them in the name of fun. So, that chandelier you spotted may seem excessive… who cares? Learn not to take things so seriously when decorating your home. Allow yourself to play!
January 20 to February 18
Your eccentric style will easily grab people’s attention, especially with your love of local brands, handmade goods, and support of products that come with a cause. This year, try using your own personal space as a platform to help others. Post photos of your fab space and the proudly Filipino-made items in it on social media. Love yourself some local art? Get to know the people behind the paintings and build relationships with them.
February 19 to March 20
When was the last time you had a restful sleep, Pisces? You may have been spending so much of your time in the more “functional” areas of your home that you’ve forgotten all about your own private space. Commit to making down time as luxurious and dreamy as possible this year. Enhance your bath with lovely scents, shift toward a better mattress, take the TV out of the room (you can do it!). You deserve a good night’s rest.
