The first of the zodiac signs is, of course, Aries! People with this star sign are fiery, passionate, and born natural leaders!

Naturally, this fun-loving and spontaneous energy reflects in their home décor choices too, with Aries often leaping headfirst into decisions it’s not unusual for them to want to change up their home quickly and without too much thought. Therefore, for Aries, it’s best not to make any decisions that are too permanent as it’s likely their mind will be changed again! “We recommend styling your home with easily changeable décor pieces that can be rotated easily to prevent boredom,” says James Waylett, from Jacobs & Dalton.
