How To Decorate Your Bedroom If You're A Gemini

If you were born between May 21 and June 20, you would fall under Gemini, the third youngest zodiac sign. Gemini is an air sign along with Libra and Aquarius and is mutable, as are Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces (via Astrology Zodiac Signs). It is also ruled by Mercury, along with fellow mutable sibling Virgo. Geminis are represented by the twins' symbol, which says a lot about some of their most common characteristics.

Those born under this star tend to be adaptable and flexible, and remarkably quick learners. They are very social and explorative people, as well as very thoughtful and personable. On the other hand, they tend to be indecisive and inconsistent and dislike being alone. If you want to enhance the positive attributes of your Gemini energy in your home, what better room to start in than your bedroom? Your bedroom is the place where you rest and relax, where you start and end your day. Keep reading to learn how to amp up the Gemini vibes in your space.

Yellow bedding

Gemini is an undeniably bold and vibrant zodiac sign, so it would make sense that an equally bold and vibrant color represents it. According to Colors Explained, the hue that best portrays Gemini is yellow, so this is a great place to start decorating your bedroom. Be careful when using this color in your bedroom, though. As Verywell Mind points out, yellow is a very energizing hue, so much so that it can become overwhelming and frustrating, inducing feelings of stress.

That doesn't mean it can't be used in your safe haven, though. Instead of painting the walls in a bright shade, opt for a yellow comforter, duvet cover, or throw blanket. Go for more muted, warmer tones of yellow, too, as opposed to brighter and flatter tones. Mustard and golden colors will be softer and more calming and pair well with other great pigments like orange, red, pink, and green for an earthy, autumnal color scheme.

Sheer curtains

Each zodiac sign belongs to one of the four elements — earth, air, fire, and water. For example, Gemini is an air sign, along with Aquarius and Libra. says that some commonly shared attributes among the air signs include being excellent communicators with lots of perspectives, as well as being highly sympathetic.

While the other elements can manifest themselves more obviously in physical ways, the air is a bit more elusive. That being said, there are certainly means to express the physical qualities of air in your bedroom. One great way to do so is with sheer curtains, which will catch the breeze when your windows are open. If you aren't worried about privacy or blocking sunlight, sheer curtains are beautiful on their own. However, you can easily combine them with curtains with the same effect. For example, you can pair them with thicker paneled curtains that can be drawn for privacy when needed, per Kwik-Hang. You can also drape them over doorways or bed posts for a similar, airy feel.

Air plants

Another great way to enhance the air elements in your bedroom is through air plants. Air Plant Supply Co. states air plants are epiphytes, meaning they don't need soil to grow. Instead, they take in the dirt and moisture in the air. This is, of course, most relevant in native growing environments — they'll need a little bit more TLC when grown indoors. For instance, they need to be misted a few times a week with water or given weekly soakings.

As for light, they prefer bright indirect sunshine. When using epiphytes to decorate your bedroom, consider placing them in hanging baskets and suspending them near a bright window. Succulents Box recommends hanging them in glass globe terrariums. Other unique display methods include jars and flat terrariums, driftwood, cork bark, or hung from a wall. As for what to put in the terrariums, add pieces of wood or rocks, moss, pebbles, shells, or crystals (via Terrarium Tribe).

Display books

While Gemini may not be as generally studious as some other zodiac signs, it is ruled by Mercury, which commands communication, intellectualism, and words, per LiveAbout. So while its sister Mercurial sign, Virgo, is typically more book smart, Gemini tends to be a little more street smart, learning through experience. However, Gemini is also an incredibly artistic and creative sign, and those born under its sun likely have a vast collection of books that you can show off in your bedroom.

An easy way to fill space and show off your favorite books is a bookshelf, of course. You can add personal trinkets, plants, and décor throughout your books neatly on your shelf. However, that isn't the only way to decorate the bedroom with your book collection. Some other artistic ideas include creating a tower of books that you can put other decorative items on top of, stacking a few books on your nightstand, or filling a basket with your favorites, per The Study.

Accent chairs

Above all else, Gemini is an incredibly social and conversational sign. It would be rare to find a Gemini that doesn't love being surrounded by close friends and deep conversations. Your bedroom is typically a room dedicated to resting, but that doesn't mean it's only a place to sleep — you can still promote conversational décor in your bedroom with a cleverly placed accent chair.

To begin, Inside Weather recommends carefully selecting the chair. A rocking chair, for example, is incredibly inviting for a friend to sit and talk with you while still feeling relaxed in a bedroom environment. Lounge and hanging chairs are also great options, as is a classic armchair. You can add to or contrast your color scheme with a bold color or pattern, or go with a classic shade and add fun throw blankets, pillows, etc. Then, you can place it next to your bed for a more direct conversational flow, in a corner to fill space, or next to your dresser to create a chic dressing area.
