How to decorate for Christmas based on your star sign

Your choice of Christmas decor will be influenced by everything from the guests you’re epxecting to family tradition, but could the stars have something to do with it too? 

UK-based psychic and astrologer Inbaal Honigman, has teamed up with carpet and flooring retailers Tapi to reveal how each sign of the zodiac should decorate their home this Yuletide.

Party-loving Geminis are advised to lean into a ‘shiny, glitzy and joyful’ aesthetic for winter whereas the décor for practical Virgos is best when it’s ‘fuss-free, and easy to vacuum underneath’.

Elsewhere family-focused Cancers may want to focus on keeping their space ‘wipe-clean and unbreakable’.
