Your bedroom should be your sanctuary, your safe haven and most importantly the place where you rest and recharge at night. The only way you’re going to get a good night’s sleep is if the nighttime glow and early morning sunlight is blocked out, leaving you to doze peacefully until you’re ready to rise!
When it comes to styling your bedroom window with blinds or curtains, light reduction and privacy should be at the forefront of your checklist, however there is no need to sacrifice design and style. Bedroom blinds come in a range of styles, materials, sizes and some with additional features, meaning there is no shortage of choice. For some, narrowing this down and choosing the perfect blinds for your bedroom can be a tricky process.
We’ve listed each Zodiac sign’s unique personality traits and our favourite styled blind or curtain to match!
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries loves to be number one, so it’s no surprise that these audacious rams are the first sign of the zodiac. Bold and ambitious, Aries dives headfirst into even the most challenging situations. For this reason, we recommend a bold and beautifully patterned blind, perhaps with stripes, circles or other bold outlines and shapes. Roller blinds can be the perfect way to achieve a statement, eye catching window, without overdoing it, by having the ability to roll up the fabric.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus is an earth sign represented by the bull. Like their celestial spirit animal, Taureans enjoy relaxing in serene, bucolic environments surrounded by soft sounds, soothing aromas, and succulent flavors. An understated, clutter free and classic style shutter blind is the perfect match. With a full height design in a charming off-white finish, these shutters will add statement character to your interior.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Have you ever been so busy that you wished you could clone yourself just to get everything done? That’s the Gemini experience in a nutshell. Appropriately symbolised by the celestial twins, this air sign was interested in so many pursuits that it had to double itself. Personalities often include frantic, outgoing and indecisive. We believe a bedroom electric roller blind could be an answer to many problems, ideal for those difficult to reach windows. They have no hanging chains, meaning less hassle to deal with. The remote control unit handles all the hard work for you – one less thing to worry about whilst juggling a busy lifestyle!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer is a cardinal water sign. Represented by the crab, this crustacean seamlessly weaves between the sea and shore representing Cancer’s ability to exist in both emotional and material realms. Cancers are highly intuitive and sometimes present psychic abilities. The day and night, blackout blinds are the perfect addition to any Cancer horoscope bedroom.
Natural light control is made so simple, with alternating strips of voile and neutral toned blackout fabric, this stylish window covering provides great flexibility and keeps a light and airy ambience in your interior with the benefit of seclusion and privacy.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Roll out the red carpet because Leo has arrived. Leo is represented by the lion and these spirited fire signs are the kings and queens of the celestial jungle. They’re delighted to embrace their royal status: Vivacious, theatrical, and passionate, Leos love to bask in the spotlight and celebrate themselves.
For this reason, only the perfect fit blinds will match the personality of a Leo. The blackout textured fabric features a stripe within its pattern. Hive Silkweave fabric features a honey-combed structure, meaning the guide wires are hidden from view.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo is an earth sign historically represented by the goddess of wheat and agriculture, an association that speaks to Virgo’s deep-rooted presence in the material world. Virgos are logical, practical, and systematic in their approach to life. Which is why wooden blinds are a well suited match to the systematic and structured personalities.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra is an air sign represented by the scales (interestingly, the only inanimate object of the zodiac), an association that reflects Libra’s fixation on balance and harmony. Libra is obsessed with symmetry and strives to create equilibrium in all areas of life.
Perfectly demonstrated in vertical bedroom blinds, the symmetry and balance falls into place gracefully with hanging fabrics, neatly assembled.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpio is one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac. Because of its incredible passion and power, Scorpio is often mistaken for a fire sign. In fact, Scorpio is a water sign that derives its strength from the psychic, emotional realm. With personalities including ambitious, honest and loyal, the decadent roman blinds are well matched. With lavish rolls of high quality material, the fabric lays folded in an orderly fashion.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Represented by the archer, Sagittarians are always on a quest for knowledge. The last fire sign of the zodiac, Sagittarius launches its many pursuits like blazing arrows, chasing after geographical, intellectual, and spiritual adventures.
Eco friendly blinds are the perfect match for the aware Sagittarius, the blind fabric is made with 100% recycled PET plastic waste. This approach helps to reduce plastic pollution, extends the life cycle of raw materials, plus less chemicals and water are used to make these.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
The last earth sign of the zodiac, Capricorn is represented by the sea goat, a mythological creature with the body of a goat and tail of a fish. Accordingly, Capricorns are skilled at navigating both the material and emotional realms. Capricorns are generally pragmatic, ambitious, and disciplined. Bedroom curtains are a fine balance of style and practicality, well suited to the Capricorn.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Despite the “aqua” in its name, Aquarius is actually the last air sign of the zodiac. Aquarius is represented by the water bearer, the mystical healer who bestows water, or life, upon the land. Accordingly, Aquarius is the most humanitarian astrological sign with distinctive attitudes and big thinkers. The bold panel blind is an obvious pair, , simple and clean designs, it leaves little room to overthink.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces, a water sign, is the last constellation of the zodiac. It’s symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions, representing the constant division of Pisces’ attention between fantasy and reality. As the final sign, Pisces has absorbed every lesson — the joys and the pain, the hopes and the fears — learned by all of the other signs. A fun and creative roller blind is well-suited to the Pisces personality, combining creativity, style, fantasy and comfort all in a bedroom or bathroom.
