Star signs are determined by the sun’s position on the day we were born. Named after twelve constellations, each sign has evolved to suggest distinctive personality traits, characteristics, points of view, strengths and weaknesses. In our hotels and residential projects, every room is individual and designed with a distinctive scheme. There is certainly a design to fit with every star sign! Join us as we share some examples…
Aquarius January 20th – February 18th
Aquarius is one of the oldest astrological signs. Although this is linked to the element of air, it relates to all features of weather related to water. Aquarians are thinkers, often with lots of ideas and never suffer a drought of inspiration. We believe room 201 at The Soho Hotel represents this star sign best. Here there is a water themed headboard and its fabric reminds us of Monet’s waterscape paintings with its vibrant, dreamy palette.
Pisces February 18th – March 19th
Pisces is symbolised by two fish swimming in opposite directions. These yin and yang fish are thought to represent the Pisces’ constant pull between reality and fantasy. Known to be adventurous and imaginative, room 110 at Charlotte Street Hotel portrays the characteristics of a Pisces. Here you’ll find Andrew Martin’s ‘Constantinople’ wallpaper which depicts a detailed map of an ancient city, complete with ships, towns and vegetation. It is the perfect room for those who love an adventure!
Aries March 21st – April 20th
Aries is a fire sign and is known as the spark that lights the rest of the signs up. Aries tend to be loud and proud characters, who are extremely passionate and at times, have intense energy. A hot red scheme seems a perfect fit for this star sign, which can be found in room 802 at The Whitby Hotel.
Taurus April 20th – May 20th
Represented by the bull, Taurus are known to be intelligent, loyal and persistent. They tend to work hard but also enjoy luxuries in life, ‘work hard, play hard’ is a motto that can definitely be applied to this sign. We think suite 907 at Crosby Street Hotel would be a great match for a Taurus. In this space, there’s a lacquer orange side board paired with a collection of mini bull sculptures.
Gemini May 21st – June 21st
Expressive and quick-witted, Gemini represents two different personalities in one and you can never be sure which one you will face. They are communicative and ready for fun, with a tendency to suddenly become serious and thoughtful. This suite at The Soho Hotel is a great example of a Gemini inspired interior. We have two different schemes within one suite. A Gemini can relax in the room that best suits their mood!
Cancer June 22nd – July 22nd
Cancer is represented by the crab. They’re primarily known for being emotional, nurturing and highly intuitive. Their elemental sign is water, which makes sense when you consider the emotional depths associated with this sign. In this bedroom, a headboard celebrates the crab through intricate embroidery.
Leo July 23rd – August 22nd
A Leo is a fire sign and often associated with confidence and bravery. The Leo astrology symbol is a simplified lion. They find safety in numbers, just like a pack animal and in this residential design, a lion sculpture makes the scheme roar!
Leo’s are also said to be bright and big-hearted, so room 5’s yellow scheme at Knightsbridge Hotel is bound to bring joy.
Virgo August 23rd – September 22nd
Virgos are associated with earth and are said to be grounded and very diligent organised people. For a Virgo, a room with a desk is a must. Covent Garden Hotel boasts more traditional schemes and many antique desks. You’ll find this cherished writing desk in the hotel’s wood panelled Drawing Room.
Libra September 23rd – October 22nd
Libras are linked to the element air and are said to be clever extroverts and social butterflies. We feel extroverts will want to stay in a loud and bright scheme, so room 806 at The Whitby Hotel is our suggestion. This room has a multitude of energetic colours!
Scorpio October 23rd – November 21st
As one of the water star signs, Scorpio’s have natural empathy with a great ability to feel the emotions around them intensely. A room with deep rich colours seems appropriate for these traits. This bedroom at Charlotte Street Hotel has been designed with sophisticated deep tones which create a sense of mystery.
Sagittarius November 22nd – December 21st
Sagittarians are said to be highly independent adventurers who are always full of imagination and creativity. Perhaps some of our most imaginative bedrooms are ones with applique headboards or cushions which display amazing skill. In Haymarket Hotel’s room 101, a cloud-like design adorns the walls and you’ll also find a aeroplane appliqued onto the headboard. It’s enough to transport anyone on a magical sky adventure!
A Sagittarius would love this wonderous artwork which you’ll also find at Haymarket Hotel.
Capricorn December 22nd – January 19th
Capricorns are said to be very hard workers and over achievers. Some say they make their success look effortless. Did you know that Elvis was a Capricorn? His success story definitely lines up to these traits! Explore some ‘Elvis Elevating Interiors’ in our blog post here.
