All the frosty, windy, dark days have us thinking about one thing: crawling under a blanket and not reappearing until springtime. But since full-on hibernation isn’t an option for most of us, the least we can do is make our homes as comfy as possible.
Rather than rushing out to buy yet another unflattering bulky sweater, we’ve compiled this list of top decor items that’ll make your home instantly cozier, all according to your zodiac sign. The secret to getting through this long winter? It’s written in the stars.
Aries (March 21–April 19): Huge faux-fur rug
No matter how bad the weather gets, a true Aries is always busy. Which is exactly why having a warm place to complete those late-night projects is so important.
“Aries love big, bold features,” says astrologer and psychic Suzie Kerr-Wright. “So a soft place to relax—like a huge faux fur rug—is perfect as they burn the midnight oil with their never-ending energy.”
What to buy: Ashleigh Faux Fur Ivory/Grey Area Rug, $229
Taurus (April 20–May 20): Ethereal chandelier
If you’re a Taurus, we know how much you love beautiful things—which is why a bright, decadent, and dreamy chandelier is just the ticket to fight off winter blues.
“A Taurus loves creature comforts,” explains astrologer and spiritualist Chandra Sherin. “But they also radiate with joy when they’re able to have beautiful and luxe touches in their home. A mini chandelier would boost earthy Taurus’ mood and add a sparkle of opulence they would take great pride in.”

Gemini (May 21–June 21): A conversation-worthy coffee table
“What a Gemini person really needs is a sitting area where they can talk, think, and create a space for gatherings with friends,” explains Sherin.
Enter: the coffee nook. Gather a few floor poufs or pillows, and dedicate a corner of your living room to creating this essential Gemini social space.
“A unique coffee table that can create the foundation for that sitting area would be grand,” she says. “Preferably one with some unique features, like artwork or vintage letters or postcards in the glass so as to be a conversation starter this winter for airy Gemini.”
What to buy: Sittard Coffee Table, $320
Cancer (June 22–July 22): Luxury throw blanket
Cancers like to be warm and cozy more than most, making a luxury blanket one of the best possible at-home comforts.
“Go right to the sofa, and add a soft, luxury throw blanket,” says Sherin. “Don’t be afraid to choose a playful array of patterns and colors, as Cancerian people love variety and quirkiness. Winter decor that provides emotional warmth and loads of comfort is ideal for watery Cancerians.”
What to buy: Chunky Handknit Throw, $149
Leo (July 23–Aug. 22): Bold statement mirror
“Leos love to bring the bling to anything,” says Kerr-Wright.
“Winter decor for Leo needs to have flair and boldness to it,” Sherin adds. “Choose a luxe mirror with a golden sun design, then pair it with a nearby framed hand-written affirmation like this: ‘I see you. You are unique, beautiful, and appreciated.’ Fiery Leo will be nourished this winter with thoughtful decor like that.”
What to buy: Birksgate Sunburst Accent Mirror, $146
Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22): Electric tea kettle
“Practical, efficient winter decor that serves a daily purpose will delight any Virgo,” says Sherin.
Another thing we know Virgos like? Taking care of others— making a teapot a perfect choice.
“The more clever and useful the decor, the bigger the win in pleasing earthy Virgo,” says Sherin.
What to buy: Breville One-Touch Tea Maker, $279
Libra (Sept. 23–Oct. 22): Calming wall tapestry
“With Libras, you’ll find that the winter decor item that will be most helpful is something that creates a feeling of harmony, beauty, and peace,” explains Sherin.
Since Libras also hate clutter, according to Kerr-Wright, the best way to create a calming effect is with wall decor.
“Choose a wall hanging or tapestry that features a peaceful, beautiful scene,” says Sherin. “Peace and beauty-inducing touches will keep airy Libra happy this winter.”
What to buy: Layla Tapestry, $298
Scorpio (Oct. 23–Nov. 21): Cozy beanbag chair
“Scorpios love to have a private space of their own,” explains Kerr-Wright.
That’s why a cozy cocoon beanbag chair is the perfect winter accessory for a Scorpio. Just be sure to let your housemates know you’re not interested in sharing.
“Scorpios are very possessive, so this would be something no one else would be allowed to sit in,” she says.
What to buy: Special Order Bean Bag, $399
Sagittarius (Nov. 22–Dec. 21): Exotic weighted blanket
“Sagittarius is known as the wanderer, but when they’re at home they want to feel more grounded,” says Kerr-Wright.
The best way to achieve both impulses at the same time? Try a weighted blanket that has some exotic wanderlust appeal as well.
“You can’t go wrong with something that inspires visions of future adventures for fiery Sagittarius this winter,” says Sherin.
What to buy: Luxe Faux Fur Weighted Blanket, $89
Capricorn (Dec. 22–Jan. 19): Heated desk chair
“A heated ergonomic desk chair for their home office,” suggests Kerr-Wright for Capricorns. People with this sign never seem to stop working toward their goals, and this winter must-have will help them stay on top of things, no matter how cold it gets.
What to buy: Benji Heated Massage Office Chair, $160
Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb. 18): Fair trade wall art
Looking for something to feed your eccentric Aquarius personality during the long and gloomy winter days?
“Find an artsy fair trade fabric to use as a wall hanging,” suggests Sherin. “Or something pop art–inspired. As long as it’s unique and humanitarian in some sense, airy Aquarius will appreciate it.”
What to buy: Indigo Blue Textile Wall Hanging, $79
Pisces (Feb. 19–March 20): Perfect bath caddy
We know water sign Pisces loves a good, long soak in the tub. So what makes for the perfect winter Pisces accessory? Kerr-Wright has a few ideas.
“A hot tub or garden tub so they can soak in their natural healing source: warm water,” she says.
If your budget isn’t hot-tub-sized, don’t worry—we found the perfect tray to make normal baths feel just as luxurious.
What to buy: Live-Edge Bath Caddy, $148
