Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Aries, your kitchen can be as loud and proud as you! You’ve got an affinity for bold ideas, so why not fill your space with the unexpected? Try incorporating daring statement pieces like neon island stools or bold light fixtures. And don't be afraid to try out trendy patterns and textures, like a geometric wall or a herringbone tile backsplash.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus, you’ll thrive in a cozy kitchen. Shades of brown as well as neutral, earthy tones will inspire the comfort you crave, while beautiful accessories—a Persian rug beneath your kitchen table or pretty paintings in glass cabinets—will satisfy your love for finer things. Finally, bring the outdoors inside with succulents and plants placed on windowsills or countertops.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You love spending time with family and friends, so it makes sense that your perfect kitchen is a multifunctional space where you can cook and entertain. Think an open concept kitchen with a big island and lots of seating. Want to show off your exotic side? Decorate with bold printed chairs.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Always the nostalgic one, you like spaces that feel comfortable and welcoming. Enter your farmhouse style kitchen: vintage furnishings, various wood tones and a large rustic table where your guests will feel right at home.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
A lion or lioness in every sense of the word, your ideal kitchen is bright with natural light, clean and practically fit for royalty. Disrupt all the white in your space with gold accents, a lavish chandelier and plush chairs.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Practical and analytical, the Virgo kitchen is a minimalist’s dream. An all-white space that’s clean and storage-savvy fits your perfectionist personality perfectly. Your motto is organized (but make it stylish!)—so don’t shy away from floating shelves or clever cabinets.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Social and diplomatic Libra gravitates towards trends while seeking out balanced spaces. A Libra’s ideal kitchen starts with a clean and sleek marble top island as the focal point. To balance its simplicity, try swapping out classic bar stools for stylish, linen-covered chairs. Finally, add bright flowers. Voila!
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpio, you’re passionate, headstrong and command a presence—but you're also understated and sensitive. Your perfect kitchen is sophisticated, boasting deep blues, ivories and purples, while offering a few nooks and crannies where you can relax.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Although you have an insatiable desire for adventure as a Sagittarius, you still need a spot to recharge. Your kitchen should balance that adventurous spirit with your need to anchor yourself and relax. Large windows offer a constant view of the outdoors while exotic trinkets from your travels add a personal touch.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
When it comes to your kitchen, Capricorn, you’re more traditional than trendy. Hardwood floors and dark cherry cabinets reflect your conventionality, while shades of navy and evergreen—juxtaposed with pops of elegant antiques—will appease your classic side.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
As an Aquarius, you’re not just up on the trends, you’re ahead of them. Since you love all things modern, your ideal kitchen includes strong and natural materials, the latest tech appliances and a stand-out waterfall island. You’re original, imaginative and bright, and your ultra-modern kitchen reflects that.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
A Pisces kitchen is the ultimate Zen retreat. You do best surrounded by calming sea colors (think pastels and gentle hues). And don’t be afraid to add soft lighting—your kitchen is a sanctuary of solitude that should appeal to your need for a peaceful environment. Looking for a unique touch? Consider a fragrance diffuser. It will give an added serenity to your calming oasis.
