Leo Living: Home Décor to Suit Your Star Sign
As a fire sign, Leos are expressive, passionate and bold. They like to be centre of attention, so they can be theatrical and flamboyant at times, but they’re also generous, warm-hearted and playful, confident leaders and always wear their hearts on their sleeves.
When it comes to home décor, they aren’t afraid to experiment. Much like their Leo star sign, their interior style tends to be bold and creative, accessorised with impressive statement pieces.
As a social zodiac sign, Leos know how to hold an entertaining dinner party. With the sun as their ruler, they love warm colours with accents of gold. They also love a bit of glamour, and lean towards textured, luxury pieces like velvet, silk, satin and suede.
So, for the fellow Leos out there, we’ve put together a stylish edit of furniture and homewares every Leo should have in their home. You are welcome.
1. Statement Artwork
With their bold and expressive decorating style, a key piece for a Leo's home is impressive statement artwork. A Leo wants anyone walking into their home to be blown away by their beautiful decorating choices.
We love this Dina Broadhurst, Champagne on Ice fine print. It’s bold, feminine and glamorous, just like a Leo.
2. Bold Gold
Nothing says glamour like gold, and what better way to create an authentic Leo interior, than with some gilded patterned wallpaper? Amp up the bling with Juju Papers wallpaper from Wallpaper Trader, to create a beautifully glamorous, yet playful room.
3. Mood Lighting
Beautiful and interesting lighting is a great way to set the mood in any home interior. This Baldwin table lamp from Coco Republic highlights elegant design with playful shapes, and with a great eye for detail, it's a winning item for a Leo’s well-designed home.
4. Cocktail Kit
With Leo's life of the party personality, a cocktail making kit is a must-have when entertaining guests in their home. This Sunny Life cocktail kit ticks all the boxes, and in true Leo style it has a luxurious gold finish.
5. Fine Dining
As Leos are leaders of the pack and social beings, it’s only natural they make great dinner party hosts. And so, a beautiful dining table makes a sure-fire staple. A round-shaped table is ideal for entertaining as it allows everyone at the table to see each other easily and interact. And much easier to pass the wine. Priorities.
6. Bold Florals
Add instant drama to a room with an oversized floral arrangement. With Leo's love of warm bold colours, we suggest a table centre-piece arrangement with vibrant red and pinks, using roses and orchid flowers for added visual impact.
7. Luxe Velvets
Luxurious textures like sumptuous velvets are the fabrics of choice in a Leo's stylish sanctuary. Particularly when it comes to sofas. This Celine sofa from Trit House says glamour, luxe and beauty, yet still delivers on comfort. A snuggly space for Leos to curl up with a glass of wine in hand.
8. Mirror, mirror
Leos love to take pride in their appearance, so a hallway mirror is an essential investment. Hang in the hallway entrance for that one last check before you go out – because Leos always have to look their best.
9. Signature Scents
Connecting with the fire in their sign, a Leo's home must always be filled with candles. It could be a large grouping of white wax candles as a centre-piece, or a signature candle scent used in multiple rooms, Leos love the warmth and sweet scent that candles evoke. This Fornasetti candle from Mecca is, in true Leo style, playful, yet sophisticated.
10. Sun Shine
As the sun is the ruler of the Leo sign, having pieces that salute the rays are grounding to a Leo's zodiac nature. Add a playful touch with this fun, statement armchair from Tigmi Trading – the sun literally beams from its frame!
