The driving force in how you decorate your home—and really just how you live in it—is dictated most often by your personality. Who you are as a person impacts what art you hang, how you set up your rooms, how often you host people, your cleaning tendencies, and how you unwind at home. But your personality can also be impacted by when you were born, and much like your zodiac sign, the month you were born in can reveal a lot about you.
Here’s what the month you were born in says about your personality—and how that might manifest in your home.
People born in January are often highly imaginative, creative, and unique. They also tend to get excited about—and work really hard for—their goals. January-born people also love to entertain. Their homes are filled with art that they’ve made, and there are always new hobbies and projects that have been started stashed away just waiting to be finished.
February-born folks are artistic and are usually seen by others as a little offbeat and shy. They’re sensitive and are more compassionate than most, but also tend to be a little forgetful. Their homes feel cozy and comfortable, and their decor is eclectic. They likely leave reminder notes to themselves all over the house to try to stay on track.
March babies grow up to be go-getters—despite the fact that they also have a tendency to daydream, they also get stuff done and sometimes act impulsively. They work hard now so they can de-stress later. They are definitely the type to carve out a home office (even in a small space) and keep a mood board up for inspiration. They’ve also got a collection of relaxing bath bombs to help them unwind.
People born in April make great leaders. They have a lot of strong opinions and tend to be a little aggressive, but they’re also quite funny and known to be dependable. They like a clean, well-coordinated modern style and don’t hang a lot of art, but the art they do have at home means a lot to them—they probably spent a lot of time finding just the right pieces.
May-born folks are clever, empathetic, and highly adaptable. They’re also super extroverted and tend to keep going until they burn out, so it’s important that they learn to balance. At home, they’re always mixing things up to fit their ever-changing style, and they’re either never home because they’re always out and about socializing, or they’ve got company over.
People born in June tend to be active and appreciate a lot of mental stimulation. They’re sensitive and inspirational, but can also be a little scatterbrained at times. Their homes are full of art and decor that motivates them, not to mention games and activities to keep them busy. They’re mostly clean, but tend to leave things around the house where they don’t belong—they’ll get to it eventually.
July babies often grow up to become a little shy, but they also tend to love drama and can lean towards being self-involved, so taking time to reflect is important. They’re also highly creative, passionate and expressive. Their home is a sanctuary—they spend a lot of time relaxing and recharging and practicing self-care—but there are almost always unfinished projects left out, too, as they’ve always got a new creative endeavour in progress.
People born in August are very hardworking and success-driven, and while they’re positive and optimistic, they do have a critical side. They’re also magnetic—people are drawn to them, and they make great leaders. They tend to have company over all the time—they’re natural born hosts, so they spend a lot of time making their home into a clean, warm, welcoming environment.
September-born people are perfectionists—they’re detail oriented and have a tendency to let their nerves get the best of them. They can be a little superficial at times, but not in a bad way—it just means they appreciate beauty and take great care of their things. They spend a lot of time curating their decor and possessions and placing everything so that it’s just so.
People born in October tend to have big, bold personalities. They’re intellectual and charming, honest and a little sarcastic, and often forget to relax—even though they really need it. Their homes tend to get messy, not because they don’t care to clean, but because they just don’t have the time—they tend to work late and spend as much of their time socializing as possible, so they’re rarely home.
November babies can grow up to be stubborn, aggressive and a little rebellious, but they’re also passionate about pursuing their goals and tend to be fearless and often funny. It’s important to them that they feel free. Their home is a space for them to really be themselves—their decor is bold and full of personality, but they set their own rules, and that means that they will get to chores and other home projects when they get to them.
People born in December are usually happy-go-lucky, but also reliable and responsible and always finish what they start. They are fiercely loyal to the people they love, but tend to close themselves off from new experiences. It’s important to them that their homes feel comfortable and inviting, but while they’re frequently having company over, their guests are usually family and close friends so making their home spotless is less important than getting the vibe right.
