How to Decorate for Cancer

Updated: Jun 12, 2022

It’s Cancer Season! Cancers are creatures of comfort and care. Ruling the 4th house, they are known as the rulers of the home life, so that means that their spaces have to be nurturing and comforting in order for this zodiac sign to thrive.

Here are some design tips to help create the perfect home for these homebodies.

Focus on the Kitchen

One of the biggest ways people show comfort and care is through food. For a Cancer sign, cooking and feeding those they love is BIG. That's why having a kitchen that is not only functional, but beautifully designed can help this sign serve up the most loving dishes. The color blue is popular with this sign, as it connects to watery feelings. Try some blue cabinets if you're feeling bold.

Use Antiques

Cancers are quite nostalgic and sentimental. Therefore, antiques and vintage pieces are a great option to decorate with as each piece has a memory. It's even better if you have a piece that is a family heirloom, as this level of nostalgia is much more meaningful for this sign.

Add the Element of Water

Cancers are ruled by the element of water. Don't take this literally when decorating, but bring in this feeling through colors, materials, and objects. A blue painted wall or sofa is great to connect to the watery vibes, while mirrors connect to the element of water in Feng Shui. You could even great a coastal feel for your space. Keep it classy though with minimal elements of that beach look, such as seagrass baskets or woven pendant lights.

A Classic Look

Cancers are a bit traditional. They don't like new, bold trends and prefer much more timeless looks. Opt for solid pieces that you will have for years to come, such as a simple sofa or a wingback arm chair. A classic white kitchen never gets old, as do neutral colors such as whites, creams, and soft beiges.
