Bring Summer into Your Home – with Help from Astrology!
Summer's here, and although you may want to spend a fair amount of your time outdoors throughout the next few months, you'll still be inside more often than you think. So why not make your home a summertime haven?

If you draw inspiration from the four elements (Air, Fire, Water, Earth) to guide your decorating choices, you're certain to come up with several new and fun ways to honor the summer season inside your home. Find the element that matches your Sun sign, or simply choose from your favorite decorating tips below!

AIR SIGNS: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Breezes feel best when the temperature rises, so enhance your home's circulation with airy fabrics and aromatherapy oils such as lemon, grapefruit, or rose geranium. Consider updating your living environment with new paint or slipcovers -- white, beige, and other light-colored shades appeal best to Air signs. Representations of birds, butterflies, and other beautiful flying creatures are a terrific way to a bring nature indoors; alternately, if you're fortunate enough to have a porch or patio, accentuate it to where you'll want to pass your summer days there admiring nature.

FIRE SIGNS: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
The heat of summer is all the inspiration you'll need to make changes to your home. Update your decor with images of the Sun and other fiery symbols -- gold, red, orange, and yellow will be the ideal accents to make you feel most comfortable. You'll also be active and eager to take advantage of the warmer weather outside, so be sure to get all your exercise and travel gear organized. And of course, as summer is a delightful season for entertaining, set up an outdoor space to accommodate your guests. Given your Fire sign, barbecuing is naturally one of your favorite ways to socialize, so make sure your grill is ready to go!

WATER SIGNS: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
If you can't spend part of your summer at a beach, lake, river, or similar setting, bring the water to you! Find yourself a beautiful fountain -- or at the very least, perhaps a soaking pool -- and decorate it with seashells and other aquatic symbols while incorporating blue-green shades into your home decor. With the season's hot air upon you, you'll want a refreshing refuge from time to time, so set up a cool spot inside your home where you can surround yourself with peaceful and soothing images, textures, and sounds.

EARTH SIGNS: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Keep it down to earth this summer by sharing your love of nature inside your home. If you're a gardener, decorate with flowers and other natural elements from your garden by filling beautiful vases with snippets of anything you've grown. Share your vegetable harvests through abundant feasts that your guests will appreciate even more when served amid beautiful surroundings; amp up your dining area by investing in new dishware and other alluring accessories.
