Now that the Christmas decorations are down and it's time for a January declutter and spring clean, you may well be thinking about a home makeover for 2018. 

Before you look at your colour chart ,the chart you should be looking at first is an astrological one. 

Each star sign is associated with particular colours that bring out the most positive aspects of its personality, while chosing the wrong shade could leave you feeling stressed and tense. 

Lifestyle blog and publishing company, Apartment Therapy, compiled a guide to choosing the right colour for your sign to ensure a harmonious home, from fiery red for Aries to opulent gold for Leo.  

ARIES: March 21 – April 19

Bold and fiery Aries naturally needs the right colour scheme to match. 

Red is, of course, the obvious choice but for a more up to date take on the look, opt for jewel tones such as scarlet and ruby. 

TAURUS: April 20 – May 20

Sensuous Taurus loves everything that's plush and elegant, but you're also a grounded sign that's full of earth energy. 

A rich green is a natural choice for you, with an emerald shade ticking the box for your love of opulence.

GEMINI: May 2 - June 20

Light and breezy Gemini is associated with both yellow and green and as an adaptable sort, you'll probably fare well opting for a mixture of both. 

If a single burst of colour feels too tame, why not go wild and splash it everywhere?

CANCER: June 21 – July 22

Cancerians are extremely loving and sentimental with a strong sense of home and family.

Look for amethyst-inspired hues to soothe your desire for comfort and stability.

LEO: July 23 – August 22

It will come as no surprise that the mighty lion needs a suitably regal colour to match. 

You're radiant and sunny and love to bask in glittering colours such as opulent gold.

VIRGO:August 23 – September 22

Being an earth sign means you'll benefit from neutral, earthy colors such as white, soft grays, and pastel greens.

LIBRA: September 23 – October 22

Libra likes to keep things simple and will benefit from a colour scheme that taps into its innate fresh energy. 

A jade green interior is the ideal palette for sparking your senses.  

SCORPIO: October 23 – November 21 

Extreme, moody and passionate, Scorpio's intense feelings are sure to escalate in a ruby red room - according to Apartment Therapy.  

SAGITTARIUS: October 23 – November 21

Just like Cancer, rich shades of purple are ideal for Sagittarius as they tap into your sense of optimism and freedom. 

CAPRICORN: December 22 – January 19

Capricorn has a stable, trustworthy nature and likes to be surrounded by colours that complement your risk-averse nature.

Deep blue accents are the ideal way to tick the style boxes while feeling relaxed.

AQUARIUS: January 20 – February 18 

Like Capricorn, you thrive when surrounded by blue, but for different reasons. 

A deep shade is the ideal match for your 'intellectual and altruistic nature'.
PISCES: January 20 – February 18

You're a deeply emotional person who is both perceptive and sensitive. 

Gem-toned sea greens match the 'deep emotional waters' that surround you.
