The Best Paint Colors For Your Home If You're A Capricorn

If you were born between December 22 and January 19, congratulations, you're a Capricorn! The 10th sign in the zodiac, Capricorns are born for success due to their excellent work ethic, attention to detail, and cutthroat attitude, says Well + Good. They're goal-oriented and organized, and though they tend to keep walls up, they're extremely devoted to the people they care about. As one of the more reserved signs of the zodiac, Capricorns are notoriously known for their mysteriousness, sophistication, and mature demeanor, and the best way to portray these unique qualities throughout your home is through your paint color choices.

The color of your walls tells people a lot about you, BestHeating says, so by choosing specific paint hues, you're giving people an impression of you the moment they step into your home; and as a Capricorn, you'll accept nothing but the highest praise when it comes to decorating your space. That being said, here are the best paint colors to choose if you're a Capricorn.


Capricorn, alongside Taurus and Virgo, is an Earth sign, so it is only fitting that the home of a Capricorn would feature neutral shades to represent its connection to the planet. Earth signs are known for having it all together, and are driven by money, success, and power, says Mindbodygreen. They are also extremely stable, reliable, and organized, so you'd call an Earth sign if you need help moving or putting a budget together (and they're great at helping you draft that email you've been putting off).

When it comes to painting your home, you need a color that is just as reliable as a Capricorn and that calls for a good old-fashioned neutral shade. Neutrals fit into any space and any design, and because they are so common, you won't have any difficulty finding the perfect shade (as we said, Capricorns are always there when you need them). For instance, you can opt for a beige shade for your kitchen to make redesigning easier should you decide to switch up the vibe later on.

Charcoal gray

According to Sensational Color, gray represents being dignified, authoritative, and conservative, which is why you often see people in positions of power wearing gray professional attire. It's a no-nonsense shade, which perfectly describes Capricorn. They are all business and don't have time for goofing off (they have a CEO position to fill!). Gray is a color people typically overlook because they view it as boring, but choosing a shade like charcoal gray for your space creates an air of elegance. Its rich undertones add dimension to a room and make charcoal more aesthetically pleasing than your run-of-the-mill gray.

Gray is associated with wisdom, as it falls somewhere between black and white — both literally and figuratively. Capricorns view the full picture when presented with an issue, and as an Earth sign, they choose to listen to their brain over their heart. Because of its versatility, charcoal gray works in any room, but we suggest using it for your in-home office (we know you have one).

Midnight blue

To showcase your mysterious side, consider painting the walls of your home a deep midnight blue. Canva explains midnight blue symbolizes elegance and power, as it was often associated with royalty (and if you're a Capricorn, we know you consider yourself as such). From a psychological standpoint, midnight blue goes hand-in-hand with reliability, integrity, and trustworthiness. Capricorns are nothing less than reliable and trustworthy and never compromise the integrity of themselves or those they care about, so when it comes time for paint shopping, grab a swatch of this delicious color.

Because of its meaning, we recommend midnight blue for your living room. This tells your guests they can trust you to take care of them while in your home, making them feel comfortable and relaxed. It also subconsciously boosts their impression of you, as they'll view your space as tasteful and classic. Opt for a monochromatic color scheme with pops of gold to show off the refined Capricorn you are.


Yes, black is an intense color, but so are Capricorns. When a Capricorn wants something (money and success), they will sail full speed ahead to do whatever they can to obtain it. Not every sign has the backbone to pull off a black room, but Capricorns were made to use this paint color. In addition to its intensity, black can be devilishly elegant when done the right way. With money and success comes luxury, and Capricorns love lavish and materialistic things, Your Tango states.

To create a bedroom that is equally as passionate and regal as a Capricorn, choose a lighter shade of black paint to set the tone for the space. Then, keep the rest of the room dark, adorning it with extravagant window coverings, chandeliers, and a headboard that would make a king jealous. When it comes to decorating a home, as a Capricorn, more always means more.

Dark green

Capricorns love money and success, so what better way to inspire yourself to keep working hard than painting your space the color of cold, hard cash? We're just kidding... kind of. According to BournCreative, dark green represents ambition and wealth, and green gemstones are even said to bring about change or growth in a person, from personal relationships to advancements in one's career. So by painting your walls a dark green color, you're setting up for success by surrounding yourself with the best color to boost your drive and determination.

Dark green would really suit your living space as many spend the most time in that area of the home, so you'll constantly be reminded of your drive to succeed and better the lives of you and your loved ones. This paint color would also do well in your home office for the same reason, but no matter where you put it when guests come into your home, they'll know they're visiting a Capricorn.
