How To Decorate Your Bedroom If You're A Taurus

Represented by the bull, those born between April 20 and May 20 fall under the Taurus astrological sign, an earth sign known for qualities of ambition, steadfastness, and a love of beauty and pleasure. So naturally, these aspects are reflected in their homes. Taurus is ruled by Venus, which governs love, beauty, and material possessions, so comfort and pleasure are crucial design elements that you shouldn't ignore if you're born under this star. Therefore, the bedroom holds special significance in the home of a Taurus.

According to Dengarden, a Taurus bedroom should take extra care to appeal to the five senses since these zodiac signs are practical, grounded people who live in the moment and appreciate the physical aspects of their surroundings. Additionally, they should pay special attention to ensuring that the space is clean, organized, aesthetically pleasing, and most importantly, comfortable and calm. While the office or kitchen of the hard-working Taurus may have a slightly more serious or regimented appearance, the bedroom should be a cozy haven for relaxation.

Comfort is king

Let's start with the most important thing: the bed. As lovers of comfort and pleasure, Tauruses should have one that is extremely comfortable and as big as the space and budget will allow. Consider splurging a little extra on your bed and opt for high-quality sheets and bedding. AstroStyle suggests that you may also want to invest in a statement bed frame that emphasizes the bed as the room's focal point, perhaps with built-in shelving to put your favorite things in easy reach.

Throughout the room, use soft textiles to create a cozy atmosphere. Try a plush rug near the bed, lots of throw pillows, and maybe a tactile tapestry or macramé hanging on the wall. Ensure that there is always a quilt or soft blanket close at hand! You can further emphasize feelings of comfort and ease by choosing furniture and décor with curved edges instead of hard right angles.

Choose calm colors

As a den of comfort and relaxation, the bedroom of a Taurus should only contain colors that induce feelings of calm and contentedness. Opt for soft pastels and jewel tones instead of intense neons or broody dark shades. According to Horoscope, pink is a significant color for Taurans. This makes sense when you consider that pink is often associated with love and romance. Green is also a good color, as the emerald is the gem best suited for a Taurus, Horoscope says. Since green and pink are opposites on the color wheel, they are complementary colors and a powerful pairing that balance each other out.

As earth signs, it is a good idea for Taurans to gravitate towards colors found in nature. For example, you can use greens and browns as calm neutrals that contrast floral-inspired pastels for a pleasing natural landscape effect. Avoid unnatural shades and instead choose colors that invoke your favorite things found in nature, perhaps taking inspiration from your local landscape.

Invoke spring

Since Taurans were born in the spring, it's apt for their bedroom to take inspiration from the season. Floral patterns and plant motifs are always good choices when choosing décor. Horoscope lists roses, poppies, and foxgloves as specific flowers associated with the Taurus sign. Potential ways to incorporate these florals could be with framed artwork, wallpaper, textiles, or fresh flowers. Since spring is all about new life, you should avoid using dried flowers or too much black or gray décor. Your Taurus bedroom should invoke life, not death.

As such, it's a good idea to add as much real plant life as possible to your bedroom. If you don't have a green thumb, opt for easy-to-care-for houseplants such as a pothos plant or succulents. For an extra strong connection to the outdoors, try growing plants native to your local environment. If your room lacks enough sunlight, you can incorporate art that features plant life or realistic-looking faux plants.

Mind the details

Because aesthetics are so important to Taurans, it is crucial to keep their bedrooms clean and organized to fully relax and enjoy the space. Dengarden recommends that Tauruses use attractive containers to keep clutter under wraps and to avoid leaving things out of place. Everything should have a designated home, ideally with favorite objects displayed prominently. Try using shelves, cabinets, and trunks to add extra storage to the room.

With their keen eyes for beauty, it is important for those zodiac signs to truly love every detail in their bedroom. If you don't love the hardware that came with your dresser, feel free to swap it out with drawer pulls that tickle your fancy. Maybe you would prefer a custom light switch cover from Etsy instead of the standard white rectangular ones. Go wild with adding custom details to beautify the space to your satisfaction. Also, try doing what you can to hide things that don't match the room's aesthetic, like keeping unattractive cords hidden in a cord management box or putting a stylish tissue box cover over that unsightly box of Kleenex.

Keep it classy

According to AstroStyle, Taurans tend to have expensive taste and a penchant for elegant home décor. This makes sense, considering the association between Venus and material possessions. AstroStyle suggests embracing this by adding luxe trappings such as Persian rugs and oil paintings to your bedroom. Even if you're on a tight budget, it's possible to indulge in your lavish home décor sensibilities. Take to thrift stores, garage sales, and estate sales for your room's unique and high-quality furniture and décor, and add little luxuries like candles, cozy slippers, and throw pillows wherever you can.

Consider incorporating a chic gallery wall into your space, using framed artwork and photos. This will satisfy the Tauran urge for beauty and elegance. Also, be sure to incorporate pictures of your favorite people, as interpersonal relationships hold deep significance to Tauruses. If you're having trouble finding art to hang, you can try printing out images that you found online onto high-quality paper.
